I leave for London and the Jubilee on Thursday. Here we are doing a stocktake to make sure there is enough food and cat litter. I will be away less than 2 weeks so I think the girls will be ok. Charlotte is doing a taste test and Emily is posing next to the cat litter because she thinks that's her photo on the bag. Mr Linens can't be trusted to buy the right brand but he can be trusted to look after my girls.
Received a lovely Happy Trip card from Daughter S and look I didn't miss the Coronation after all. Clever girl has me standing right in the middle of the parade. I don't know how she did that, the photo is me at the time of the Coronation. I thought I was 12,000 miles away but I think I remember being there, well I must have been, photos don't lie. Hope I get such a good spot to watch the Jubilee parade.
A Diamond Jubilee ring!!! Yes, browsing in my local Westfield today and saw this 'diamond' ring in a window. Set in silver if you look close you can see the diamond is in a crown setting. Really it's a zircon but I'm easily impressed. There is a matching necklace and earrings but I only bought the ring. If I'm not careful my souvenir budget will be spent before I get to London. I don't think I'll wear it to London, don't want to be mugged or knock someones eye out while I'm waving and cheering.
On the left is the Coronation cushion that dissapeared from a previous post. Now I have a GeorgeVI Coronation cushion to go with it. The 1937 cushion is unusual because it is machine embroidered and the fabric is very faded.
Next post I hope to have interesting Jubilee souvenirs to show. I am not looking forward to the long flight and hours of travel but must suffer for my enthusiasms.
