Happy 90th Birthday to Queen Elizabeth II.
What a composed and confident little girl she was way back then.
And now, looking fresh as a daisy, beautiful in the jewel bright colours she favours. Her reign has been remarkable. I never imagined when I was a fascinated little girl myself, that she would still be Queen to this day.
Well done, Ma'am.
Aren't these birthday portraits by Annie Leibovitz wonderful?
Surrounded by her two youngest grandchildren and the five great-grandies..
So proud of my Mother....

I have been stricken with the dreaded flu lurgy this week.
Too dopey and lethargic to do anything at all strenuous, I have been 'researching', and found this photo taken the day I got myself closest to H.M.
That diamond brooch was the most amazing piece of jewellery I have ever seen - fabulous!
Giving some thought to our next visit to London, later in the year.
Would Mr C be up to visiting Buckingham Palace, I wonder.
And maybe Windsor as well?
Oh, and Kensington Palace too?
Well, might have to do some by myself.
Last time I bought these plates..
Maybe I could get this:
We went to a lovely Charity Ball last week, raising funds for equipment for children with mobility needs.
The theme was 'Casino Royale'...
There were wandering
and a little bag of treats...
Eventually my flu caught up with me, and we had to leave while the music still played..
I love this piece of public art in Gray Street..
it incorporates a picture of our city..
Isn't that clever?
