Today, this day is significant to me. When I was a girl we moved house, from a big city to a little village. I love that village. I like life in a village. I went to primary school there and I sang in the church choir. I learnt the right way to ring the church bells and hand bells. I went to a bell foundry to look at a new bell. I was in that village for seven years and I was sad to go away. But the same day was significant for our queen as well. June 2nd was her Coronation Day. She travelled to an Abbey in a splendid coach with horses. We transported our furniture with a farm tractor and cart! (There's no picture!) Who is this other woman? She is Martha Washington. She was born on this day in 1731. She was the wife of George Washington, the first President of the United States of America. Elizabeth is our "First Lady". Martha was the first "First Lady".
