Do something new this weekend...

The UK is all set for an extra-long bank holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.  I'm taking advantage of the four days to head north to see family so will take a blog break until next week, but, hopefully will return with some lovely pictures of Northumberland.  To keep you going here are some lovely links and ideas for the next few days if you find yourself with time to indulge...

1. If you're in London head for the river on Sunday to watch the 1,000 strong flotilla .

The formal river procession will be between 2pm and 6pm, starting upriver of Battersea Bridge and finishing downriver of Tower Bridge. The boats will muster between Hammersmith and Battersea and disperse from Tower Bridge to West India Docks.
It will be one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river. Rowed boats and working boats and pleasure vessels of all shapes and sizes will be beautifully dressed with streamers and Union Flags, their crews and passengers turned out in their finest rigs. The armed forces, fire, police, rescue and other services will be afloat and there will be an exuberance of historic boats, wooden launches, steam vessels and other boats of note.

2. Make your own Granola using this receipe from Rosaline of This is Glamorous

3. Ring the changes with a cocktail cake as recommended by The Glitter Guide

4.  Fuschia pink and gold leaf - make these gorgeous notebooks

5. Get organised.  Get out your makeup bag, clean and throwaway anything older than 3 months or not  used.  Wash your brushes in baby shampoo and leave to dry before organising like this
Have a wonderfully relaxed and beautiful weekend whatever you have planned...
