Like so many all over the world, I devoted Monday to watching, on television, the ritual that accompanied the end of an era in London. I am glad I bought an extra box of tissues! A friend and I lunched, between processions, church services, standing for the national anthem and tears, on Italian stuzzichini (finger food) and a Turkish lahmacun (because it tastes good cold and I had therefore been able to make it the day before, using a pizza base not pitta bread, as it traditional). After that there had to be cake and my local bar made the one you see below for me - a thank you to the late Queen but also looking to the future with King Charles:   

Thus a Welshwoman and a Scottish woman in Sicily bade farewell to this most international of queens and we do not think she would have minded at all.

A lovely way to celebrate the life of 'Our Queen' and shed some tears because she is no longer with us.

Long Live The King.

What a lovely idea and the cake looks amazing.

Thank you for this and your previous post, beautiful thoughts nicely worded.

I hope you are well, I am ashamed to say it's been a while since I looked at your blog.
