Here's the image I used on Facebook today to wish everyone a Happy St Georges Day. I sent the girls and Guy off with 'Jubilee' fondant fancie cakes this morning!! But that's about all we've got planned! I have got the England flag flying on the shed door- but couldn't get a great photo of that. I'm proud to be English- proud to be British aswell. But think we should celebrate more than we do. We went to a St Georges day celebration in Birmingham a couple of years ago- but didn't check whether it was on this weekend. I still have to take a photo for yesterday- not doing so great without my little camera! I'm reading a great book at the moment- Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan. I've read some of her books before and do love them. As part of World Book Night- which is today, I was chosen to give out copies of Sleepyhead by Mark Billingham. I have got 3 copies ready to post out to people- and will have to go to the post office tomorrow now. So sorry for the delay!!!!!! I have one last copy left that needs a new home- so will offer it here to the first person to post here or pm me on UKS (I'm Kim on UKS). I'll post it with the others tomorrow. It's also Shakespeare's birthday today- part of the reason they chose the date! I studied 3 Shakespeare plays at school- my sister can still quote my O'level book because I have to learn/revise by continuous repetition. I studied Merchant of Venice- and the school put on a production which everyone went along to- as the best looking lad in the 6th form had the lead part. Very cunning casting by the English department. I must try to read a few more plays.


  1. I wouldn't mind a copy of that book, Kim. As for St George's day, it's a bit strange to me as DH is traveling so it doesn't really talk to me !!!

    1. Anne- if you pm me your addie on UKS, I'll post one out to you tomorrow. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Happy St George's Day, my daughter is in the Rainbows and if it isnt raining this evening she will be taking part in the parade, they are too young to go to the Church service though. I like the idea of the cakes...did you take a pic of them too??

  3. Great post Kim, I too think we should be more patriotic.
    I loved The Merchant Of Venice, I studied that one too. Like you I should read more. I found a copy of the collected works on holiday.....still sitting on the shelf :) Jen xx

  4. Greay photo I think we should be more patriotic as well.

  5. I couldn't agree more, Kim! It annoys many of us here in England celebrate St Patrick's Day more than St George's Day!
