At around 7pm last night we had a knock on the door from a local community officer , letting us know that they were putting searchlights outside our house. They were planning on lighting them at 10pm , and they would be red , white and blue to commemorate the jubilee.
I had said that I'd wake my two up when they switched the lights on , but to be honest it really wasn't worth it. It took almost the whole half hour they were on for them to warm up , and they didn't look as if they were different colours either .
The idea of the lit beacons was good ,and I'm sure they looked very impressive , but I'm not too impressed with these.
We had a jubilee picnic party indoors on Sunday , and had some great fun apple bobbing and playing musical statues with the kids ,lol .
I'll be back soon with a small stitching update
Thanks for dropping by ,
