I've always wanted to be a princess. Not a Disney type, but a regal jewel wearing royal princess. However, now I realise that I'd like to play with the jewels and live in a big palace or castle, but be completely anonymous. Imagine living your whole life under the constant scrutiny of other people. We celebrate Queen's birthday this weekend, and, although not her real birthday, I'd like to wish Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, a very happy and fun birthday, with plenty of privacy.
Well, I think Queen's Birthday weekend is a bit of a gift to me! Three glorious days of weekend. Adventures to be had. Snuggling up in bed in the morning, with no need to rush. Today I got two parcels from The Book Depository, so I've got some wonderful new books to enjoy.
I read Cherry's lovely blog when I first discovered blogs a few years ago, and then I somehow forgot about it. Then I read a review of her book and decided I HAD to have it. My books give me immense pleasure, so I don't feel guilty adding new ones to my collection every now and then. What a treat getting that card in the mailbox to say I have a booky parcel awaiting collection at the village dairy.
Have a lovely weekend. By the way, I haven't credited the photos because they were not credited when I googled them. Sadly, they are not from my family album, but if they are from yours and you would like credit, please let me know. In fact, Your Majesty, I'd love to pop around for afternoon tea and a quiet hack with you on the bridle path of one of your estates. I wouldn't grizzle about corgi fur on my cardigan!
