The parents of our own dear Queen honeymooned here in 1923, which I thought was very humble and sweet, it would have been enormously private too. We had a smashing lunch sitting 'with' the royals on the lawns and enjoyed the day tremendously.

Anyway before we set off in the morning I presented her with her birthday treats. I really love it when you manage to find a real corker of a present for someone special. Consequently I sometimes buy presents way in advance of a birthday or Christmas, the trick then is as we all know remembering where we have squirrelled it away.
Her main present from me was the cutest vintage kitchen calendar, which I found at Milly and Dottie's Emporium. It still has the original shopping list pad and unused pencil and is a perpetual calender so should last forever.
Linda has two adorable cats called Bramble and Hetty, whom I imagine would have looked just like these two when they were kittencubs, as Linda would say.
She also loves Cherries and Marzipan so another winner.
And to complete the package a jolly good read.
She was chuffed to bits and so was I.
