|Unfold the Flag|
|Ready to go,go,go.......|
As I sat on the bench to raise and rest my right leg the Mayor appeared with a smile at my arrival.
|Sharon Buxton smiled as she walked over to the flag, a big morning with Photographer and Government Members.|
|I'm honoured to be invited along to the Raising of the Commonwealth Flag for Queen Elizabeth II|
|Sharon and I posing for the Photographer.|
|The sun was so bright to my eyes........ must look into that!|
|Preparation for the talk.|
|Paul Christopher Stone, Sharon Buxton, Marie Buxton-Williamson plus1 beautiful baby.|
|Great thoughtful words|
|Speach before the Flag Raising|

What a superb honour to be part of this history for Chesterfield Market Town.
Now inside the "Big Hoose" The Town Hall for tea and cake. Smiles had by all; It's great to capture people while they continue with work and oblivious of the camera snapping away by me.
|Bleedin Eck! China tea cups and a picture of HRH Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Phillip...Phewwwww!|
|Should I make more Jewellery? It's rather heavy for the ear though!|
|A little bit of Bling.......? How Much £££'s...? Golds not my colour to wear though, I'll put it away under key.|
What an imagination eh!
|BLING! WOWZER! Design and Art is beautiful here on the chains.|
I shall write a letter about my day to my Blob/Blog;
Dear Me, Pauline'sblob2.
What a day I'm having...
The sun is shining and the Flag is blowing in the light breeze today.
What an experience to be part of the Commonwealth Raising Flag in Chesterfield Market Town.
The tea tastes delicious from China cups, the furnishings are exquisite and the pictures on the walls are spectacular of our Royal Family.
I thought that attending the Christmas Party by the Mayor was magical to be part of that but today has just peeked even more than I expected.
I arrived here in Chesterfield and I knew nobody as it was a brand new place for me to be put.
After my Brain Trauma, I had no social avenues to take, no-one to talk, walk or laugh with.
I was well and truly alone!
A big shift moved for me here;
As I stand at the end of the junction to cross the road; these mobile people stop and allow me to cross the road......"no rush, take your time!" can be heard. People open doors for me, say "excuse me may I help you!" People in this Town have the Biggest Hearts that I have ever seen before.
I have made some wondeful and inspiring friends, associates and notable peoples from different avenues than my own path, a great big pot of knowledge that cares and loves for life.
Lots of Love,
From Me, Pauline, I AM XXX
|The Flag Flies|
|A great sight.|
|I watch the Flag Fly.|
|Great to see the strong Flag in air.|
|I need to go for a cuppa and seat again..........I'm exhausted after an exciting morning to see and hear and talk about.|
THE END............. (only for today!)
