One for the Grandmas: Daffodils 2012

It's that time of year again: Time for our annual picture in front of the Queen's House and the daffodils. I wonder if they'll come back from university to get the picture taken....

2012: Week 12

The Great London Easter Egg Hunt seems to be missing an egg. Maybe they've hidden it in a harder to find location than Trafalgar Square.

It turns out-- no big surprise here-- that it was stolen. Maybe it will make a surprise appearance when they bring all the eggs together in Covent Garden in April

2012: Week 11

Heroically defending his patch of blazer.

My husband and I had lunch at the PItt Cue Co. in Soho, and these are the chits they use for your tab. We got a soldier, but we could have also ended up with a cow, a sheep or another farm animal.

We liked our valiant solder, though. We also loved our southern BBQ in the heart of Soho.

This isn't the most exciting picture in the world, but it's a good reflection of my Week 10 in 2012, which was consumed by paperwork-- reading it, writing it, analysing it. I'm thrilled that I can now file this massive pile away. On to 11:2012!

Happy 44th Birthday to my husband, who was only two days away from being a Leap Year Baby when he was born on 27th February 1968.

Hard to believe the iPhone could do birthday candles in a dark room. The focus leaves a little to be desired, but it's not bad.

The cake is Orange Cassata cake, or, as we call it, "Sophia Loren Cake." It's a firm favourite in our house and utterly delicious.
