I didn't wave a flag or join in with the earnest hip hip hoorays but I was as much a part of the event as anybody else.
I'm glad I went along to see what will most certainly be a 'once in a lifetime' celebration.
Those people who were questioning my stance via twitter really were getting their knickers in a twist over not much.
The anti brigade have every right to say I shouldn't go and join in the celebrations once they've stopped joining in with Christmas if they don't go to church.
We stood near to the Queen Elizabeth Hall Purcell Room and Waterloo Bridge. It was absolutely heaving but the crowd were all very good natured.
Despite affecting an air of cool indifference, I did find I was waving my iPhone above my head and standing on tip toe once her madge's barge came close.
Did I say barge?
|The tiny spot of white is QE2.|
We waited until the 1000 vessels had gone by, then ambled back to London Bridge station, through the monsoon.
We walked for a while behind Jeremy Clarkson (and some of his rather sweary companions) who weren't impressed at the road and footway closures due to the heavy crowds.
In summary, even though I would rather think of myself like this, I'm probably a little bit like this too.
Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday everyone.
