……… and hope to take part in her Diamond Jubilee in some small way (we are already planning on sending her a card).
So as soon as Darrell saw about the ballot for tickets for the Diamond Jubilee Concert on The One Show with Gary Barlow, he was like a ferret up a drainpipe to get on to the website to put in our application, in fact the site crashed!
It is almost too exciting to bear. It will take quite a few weeks before we hear if we are successful, but if we are it will be the most WONDEROUS occasion of our lives! If we are so lucky as to be bestowed a pair of royal tickets we would embrace the whole day for all it is worth, in fact we would squeeze it dry!
To think that we could be granted the honour of being able to take a wander round Her Majesty's herbaceous borders in her palace grounds and then partake in a “Royal” picnic as a pre-concert pre-amble, before finally taking our seats for the concert, resplendent in our very best, fit for royalty type, apparel, glowsticks akimbo ..... swaying to the likes of Sir Tom Jones ..... and hoping against hope that they announce Kylie as a surprise guest star! Ooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Our fingers, and toes are so tightly crossed they may become permanently locked as the ballot isn't made until 2nd March .... and we have also added a little extra bit in our prayers at night which we hope God won’t mind. http://www.bbc.co.uk/diamondjubilee/concert-tickets.shtml
