Yesterday the girls went to school in Diamond Jubilee regalia. Liz fashioned 'ermine' cloaks and I made crowns, but the best items were a delightfully kitsch tea towel and rubber duck, brought over by Nick yesterday. They were the envy of their classes. I mean, how could their Chinese or Korea or Japanese classmates compete with that?
Naomi was going to go as a corgi but we convinced her that no-one would get the corgi cultural context - she would just look like a dog. At best. Incidentally, we found out that the Queen has dorgis as well (apparently a cross-between a corgi and a dachsund).
Anyway, we're missing out on all the fun & festivities back home. Doubtless there will be street parties across the land. Let's hope the weather holds out.
