I heart Union Jacks.


Ok, so onto nicer things tonight. I’ve had enough of furry creatures.

I’ve always had a penchant for all things Union Jack-y. Cushions, rugs, doorstops, throws, art prints, clothing etc. But I do wonder if it has something to do with the fact that I’m not British. I certainly wouldn’t like to adorn my house in Aussie flag accessories. A bit daggy, right? I love Australia, I really do. But the flag just does not do it for me, even though there is a Union Jack on it.

It’s Jubilee mania here in Blighty. Sixty years of monarchy by one lady is pretty impressive. Her relentless work ethic notwithstanding, her dress sense is pretty fab in my opinion. I loved her outfit for Prince William and Kate’s wedding. She completely outshone the young mothers (literally).

And frugal too! She re-wears the outfit to a trip to Oz. via mydaily.co.uk

Retailers have cottoned on and there are union jacked items on every shelf and enough bunting to go around Earth many times over. I’m only a monarchist by Commonwealth association, despite most people of my generation having republic sentiments (correct me if I’m wrong). But in order to support the community and all that jazz, I really should get stocking on some Jubilee related stuff…

That’s it for me for now. I’m exhausted from the scrubbing and scrambling over mouse poo and traps.
