I am off to the U.K. for a few days tomorrow to visit my family and to get my fix of all things quintessentially English. My invitation to the wedding has still not arrived so I won’t have to buy a hat but these are some of the things I will be availing myself of –
Fish and chips
The V & A Museum
A West End Show
I will be fat and fatigued by the time I arrive back in France but ask me if I care?
I hope everybody who finds their way to my blog now and then (and other people too, of course) has a lovely Easter break with lots of chocolate, friends and family and some more beautiful spring weather.
As the Royal Wedding approaches, I’ve chosen something topical for my Saturday Selection today.
I’m always amazed at what you can do with a pair of needles and some yarn – remember my Wooly Wedding post recently? – but now, thanks to Debi Birkin at Periwinkle Park, you can knit your own crown. Well, officially, it’s for the teapot but, as Billy Connelly said ‘Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn’t try it on.’
I have had knitting patterns from Debi before and she has some adorable ones in her Etsy shop.
Sometimes the feeling comes upon me and I feel homesick for England. Sometimes I cure it by watching something very British like Dr. Who, sometimes I eat a bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, mostly I phone my mum. Today I made a treasury on Etsy.
