This morning we played Christopher Robin and Alice and went to watch the changing guard at Buckingham Palace.
It was bitterly cold standing there waiting for all the pomp and ceremony to start and then it got progressively colder as we waited for it to finish! One thing about the British – they do pomp and ceremony very well.
At this time of year they only do it every second day – .
As you can see we were perfectly positioned for the receding shots!
We then went to Fortnum & Mason which has wonderful Christmas window displays – but only a couple of my photos were not "ruined" by spectator reflections in the windows LOL.
I bought a Fortnum & Mason Christmas pudding – I have to have pudding at Christmas. As Cat mentioned recently I used to make the family pudding every year – using a recipe that my grandmother used for 60 years. Now that I live in the States I find that it is a waste to do it as no-one seems to eat pudding.
This pudding cost me 10 pounds! (I would use the pound symbol but my keyboard only has $ and I'm not getting into the whole insert symbol thing) It weighs 450 gms (1lb) – I am going to savour every morsel of it
