There is no village tea here in Scotland for the diamond jubilee but a beacon will be lit on the highest hill, Black Mount, at 10 pm on Monday.
If I'm still blogging next year I can show you my 1953 Coronation mug, every child in the village got one and in 1977 I returned to stay on the farm with my parents for the silver jubilee weekend. Mr FF and I decorated the road through the village with home made bunting, cutting up old fertiliser bags into triangles and stapling them to agricultural twine, we must have made miles which we fastened to telegraph poles. At the village tea all the children received a mug and as a surprise and thanks for the decoration I got one too, I still have both my mugs on display.
To mark the occasion I've fished out my Emma Bridgewater patriotic shopper. enjoy your royal weekend.
