It's all good fun and several categories are held as you can see with strict rules to be adhered to, I especially laughed at the Russian Roulette idea. I love how bonkers and versatile this country can be.
This week will see the UK celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday and up and down the country there will be garden parties, picnics and many different celebrations of people coming together in the name of the queen, but actually it's more like in the name of community. Anything that brings people together for happiness gets a huge thumbs up in my book. Our village will be having one huge picnic in the park with traditional Punch and Judy, ice creams and fair rides. It's a day of coming together. A snippet of photos of the Queen through out her reign can be seen here: Elizabeth II Time line I shall be decorating my porch and the garden with bunting and appropriate flags to show we are game on in this house for parties and fun. Photos next week.
On a very local level again only in England, unless you tell me otherwise, our local farmer has caused quite a stir. A field minutes from my house suddenly grew giant marshmallows over night, want to see...

This brings me to my fourth UK snippet to share with you and again is local to my home. It is still a mystery as to who wrote it or indeed who Lukas is, there are as you can expect a few rumours flying around...
And finally the sun began to shine in our neck of the woods which sent me in a kitchen frenzy to make very English food and drink...

And then I tried my hand for the first time on Gin & Tonic cake. Oh. My. Word. Is all I have to say about that. Needles to say it went down an English storm and will become a firm favourite in our house. Will post up the recipe this week end if anyone fancies a lovely moist lemon drizzle type cake with the added English benefit of gin!
