Despite a last minute re-location to our front room, our Jubilee picnic (which was originally meant to take place in the park along with thousands of others but was eventually rained off) was a huge hit. My Mum did a seriously stellar job with the homemade treats including sausage rolls, potato salad, cheese and bacon twists, impressive cupcakes, iced orange and ginger biscuits, scones and clotted cream and, of course, Coronation Chicken.
While we're not particularly bothered about the royals, it was most definitely worth celebrating the jubilee if just for the food. I'm seriously full up now, but the fridge is packed with leftovers that are calling me.
Josephine enjoyed the festivities, especially her homemade crown courtesy of her cousins and Auntie Chloe. She even got in on some flag waving action. Until she tried to eat it, at least.
It's crazy to think that when we were celebrating another royal event last year Josephine was just a tiny speck in my belly; we didn't even know she was there. And this year she was sat with us, laughing away and filling our lives with joy. What a difference a year makes.
Oh, and happy Diamond Queenie.
