So of course I distract myself, make cake and decorate the mantle. Sponsored by Emma Rafter, we have the wondrous cake topping, paper chains, ribbon and tin. Marks and Spencer biscuit tin and a union jake kite - a gift from a friend quite a while ago. Anything red, white or blue fits as does my newly acquired jubilee mug. I've changed the guard and put up postcards I've kept from sent from Blighty, even dug out some pictures of landmarks and top spots. Great British Anthems played and the neighbours came for afternoon tea with the aforementioned cake.

|The Union Jack Kite completing the scene really|
|Victoria Sponge, thank you Jamie|
|Jet lag and a week at work clearly showing on my face, but I battle on and make cake|
|The wonder that is|
|Ready for afternoon tea|
|Just one more for good measure|
|Afternoon tea - yes sunny and warm in winter Auckland|
|Half eaten cake but the Queen hangs in|
Is this helping the quandary, I don't know.
