So how did your Jubilee celebrations go? We had a full-on adrenaline packed weekend with something for everybody!
There has been sun, cake, tents, parties, rain, BBQs, sewing, sandwiches, wind, baking, bright colours, puddings, red, flowers, gazebos, white, zoos, camping, blue, music........you mention it, we did it!
As ordered, the sun (mainly) shone on Middle's seventh birthday tea-party and the kids were able to play outdoors. Bunting was hanging in the apple tree as I dreamt of, and I also managed to squeeze in making a picnic blanket, with a jubilee theme.
When I was dreaming big the other day, I wished for weed-free borders which unfortunately did not materialise, but on Ruth's suggestion I did rock the 'wild-flower meadow' look!
In among the jungle of weeds, the flowers were doing their own personal 'nod' to the celebrations.
And cake? Well if you recall, I imagined a three teired cake in the celebratory colours.....and.......
.........not bad eh? It tasted scrummy and made our lives more colourful in ways that you couldn't imagine ;-)
So all, in all, I do think we've experienced the jubilee on many levels and middle's birthday coinciding with it all, only made it all the more exciting!
