The easy way to go on holiday!

Now the weather has been truly un-summer like here in jolly old England.  It rained for the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations, cakes made by my daughter and her friend were eaten inside watching festivities, rather than at the local big Picnic in the park event.

It poured with rain on our wedding anniversary (but didn't dampen our happiness)!

It poured with rain on Monday when the Olympic torch came to town.  We were quite soggy by the time we got home.

Now I still have to arrange our summer holiday, and shall we go abroad or stay home?  Decisions are not yet made but if we do want to fly perhaps British Airways new service would be ideal.  Have you seen the advert for it yet?  Do have a look, and remember to put in your postcode or address.  Door to door service especially for you!

Actually a neighbour told me about the BA advert, Olympic themed and courtesy of CGI and Google Maps, you see a B777 taxiing up your own road.  I am not sure whether it only works in the U.K. and I am sure some of you will let me know, but it is rather fun.  The neighbour who told me has lived in the road for 58 years and said she also put in the address she lived at as a child and what a delight it was to see that house just as she remembered it.


  1. Hope the weather didn't dampen your festivities! We are rather like you - have just had our 40th anniversary and like you are trying to decide on a summer holiday but maybe a staycation would fit the bill as we don't seem to get round to sorting anything out! Must pop over and see the ad you mention!

  2. Wow- you've had a lot of reasons to celebrate---- congrats on your 30 year anniversary- that is just wonderful. Love that photo of you both-- all smiles!!
    I hope the rain is gone for a while!!

  3. looks like you had fun. Just noticed your hair has grown so long since i last saw you x

  4. Lovely cakes! It's such a shame about the unpredictable English weather isn't it?... Luckily it doesn't dampen the British spirit though :-)
    Happy belated Anniversary to you and your hubby!!
    Thank you very much for the kind comment you left on my recent post. I am very pleased with my new crafty area. Have a great week!
