Even this Jubilee weekend has proven to be problematic because of the vagaries of the British weather and the fact that Paul is currently engaged on a four-week contract which (as is the case in theatre) doesn’t take into consideration public holidays. He has one day off over the weekend, and we had hoped to host a garden-based Big Jubilee Lunch for flag-waving family and friends.
Unfortunately, we have had to postpone it because the weather forecast is TERRIBLE for Winchcombe and, as you know, the house is too small for everyone to fit in comfortably - and to be able to eat as well!
Therefore, the family is de-camping to my sister’s house – a 50-minute drive from No.6, north of Worcester. The family is keen to meet up not only for the Jubilee excuse for party food, but also to mark my and Paul’s wedding anniversary (17 years on 3rd June), to welcome Violet back from Dubai (again) and to celebrate Clementine’s offer of a new job!
