I feel all Jubilee-ant (jubilant.....not sure that works.....) about the weekend. Wasn't it great? Yes it peed it down, yes the poor Prince had to leave the celebrations but in true British fashion, the rest of us partied including Her Majesty.....86 years-old? Fair play my dear, fair play. You looked amazing and you behaved even more so, considering you were on your feet for so long.
Just a shame Will.I.Am had no idea how to address The Queen at the party last night, I wonder who else was cringing.
Will.I.Have.No.Flippin'.Clue.Yet.I'm.Performing.For.Her.Majesty needs to work harder. Stop eyeing up weak-voiced Chezza and get a grip, man.
Well, I managed to pick up some bits and bobs for the grand occasion from a cherry tree shop. I managed to buy the below tray, the cups and the bowls for less than a fiver for the job lot (the straws were from Poundland).
|I've eaten three of these blighters today and the night is still young|
There was another reason to celebrate as well. The Prince (mine, not Prince Philip) came hurtling out of my nether regions three years ago today. Actually I lie, he didn't hurtle at all. Nope, he took his time......but he was worth the wait.
|How more shocked could you look?!|
|Princess meets the Prince|
|Week before I gave birth|
|Possibly the world's largest gut...|
Ah, this little boy has melted me beyond belief. I love him completely. I wish I could bottle him up. Every morning he tells me I look pretty, even when I look horrendous.
This little bundle of love didn't sleep at all for the first 10 months of his life, but he still charmed me. And everyone who met him.
|He didn't get those skinny pins from his ma, rest assured|
|He completed our little family unit. |
A pink and a blue one (the pink was at school on this day. We were sunbathing at Henley River)
|His first birthday|
|His second birthday|
|His third birthday|
So we had a little Jubilee/Prince turning three party and my parents came. It was so lush. They stayed three nights and I wish they'd stayed longer.
I made a Jubilee cake and wished I'd had a bigger tin and that the cake hadn't risen so high that all the berries kept rolling off. Afterwards I realised the obvious - I should have lopped the top off and turning it upside down for a flat surface. Still, it tasted amazing and was troughed within an hour of making it.
We decided to hold the party indoors as the weather looked well iffy.
|And I got off with a Prince|
|I was amazed that Prince Philip had developed moobs...|
|The real star of the show, in my eye|
(please ignore another badly iced cake. It's not a skill I possess!)
The cake must have tasted good though, because SOMEONE thought they would try to hack off another huge slice without being noticed!
