Hallo Bloggy Friends - my name is Trilby and my Mum Magic has said I can share her blog today to tell you about my visit on Saturday to Abbey Lea Care Home Garden Party for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. I went with my brother Merlin and we had a very exciting time.
There were lots of people there and a lady was singing songs from the 1940s and trying to get everyone to join in...but we didn't know the words :-)
Probably the most exciting part was at the back of the garden where peeps were standing waiting near a man cooking sausages and burgers. There were such lovely smells and we waited very patiently for our turn and hoped a sausage was on the way.
This is me and Merlin getting a little impatient at waiting .... sausages were being eaten but not by us :-( but we did get a little bit after a while. Then it was getting cold so we went indoors and Judith & Leigh tried to guess the weight of a special Jubilee cake...and Leigh won!!
It weighed 5 lbs which is more than me (!) and we were able to bring it home for our Jubilee Party on Sunday. But my Mum has said that I've done enough blogging for now and it's time for me to sleep while she tells you all about the big party we had yesterday....hope to blog again soon - goodnight.
Hey friends - Magic back - to tell you about our little party here to celebrate the Queen's 60 years on the throne. There are lots of special celebrations throughout the UK and the Commonwealth and lots of street parties and there are flags and bunting everywhere round the village. Yesterday there was a huge river pageant on the Thames in London and the Queen and other Royal peeps were there to see a thousand boats going along the river. The barges were painted beautiful colours and there were boats with peeps playing music and dressed in costumes. We all wished we could have been in London to see but we watched it on our TV and Judith made us some special bandanas to wear and Leigh prepared some goodies and we had a wonderful picnic in the conservatory because it poured with rain :-( Here are some more pictures of our feast:
The Victoria Sponge cake filled with cream - a bit messy but delicious
And a close-up of the decorations with the Queen and her corgis outside Buckingham Palace.
Chocoloate cup cakes with a boat for the river pageant and some little Union Jack flags.
Here we are enjoying chicken jelly from our special Union Jack bowls.
You can see my smart bandana here with images of London and crowns for the Queen.
This is my sister Caoimhe with Merlin hoping for some Hot Dog sausages - they were very yummy.
Crybbe even let Trilby finish off the jelly in his bowl!
And of course Trilby fell asleep after all that excitement.... on top of Aoife!
