Today :-)

...

Today I recieved a registered letter to say my British Citizenship has been approved!

I feel as if I have (strangely) come a full circle, having been born into a British colony and starting my schooling colouring in the Union Jack in Kindergarten. It isn't official until the ceremony, which they say they'll notify me about, but it's close enough that I felt the day deserved a "patriotic" picture.

Have a good day! :-)

Congrats! and I love the picture, made me giggle, although I wonder if the guy fainted!

Yep, he fainted. My dad (was in army) says you're taught to drop back if you faint - so that you don't hurt yourself or those around you. Since they're usually holding guns, bayonettes, etc, it can be dangerous to faint and "flop" against someone.

Well that makes the picture sad then, poor guy. And interesting history lesson!
