As hubby began a 17 day long holiday from work, we celebrated the Jubilee quietly, I got some of my china tea collection out and we had scones, with thunder and tightening (Thank you Nigella!), sandwiches, chocolate brownies, cupcakes, lemonade and tea! We watched the Thames Jubilee Diamond Pageant on the TV, and I was pretty glad we didn't go looking at all that rain! It was much nicer being relaxed and warm in our own house drinking tea and eating cake! Cordelia happily printed off some patriotic pictures to colour in and made her own flag and crowns which she stuck on cocktail sticks and we put in some of the food. It was a rather lovely afternoon with lots of conversations about the Royal Family and traditions.
