the queen’s guards

on the entrances to Windsor Great Park are various little huts where the park wardens sit. this one was empty so i took a photo of the contents.
it consisted on a first aid kit, a harrods china mug and an old copy of the sunday sport.

the queen closes something

i think i’ve mentioned before that they often get dignitaries in to open buildings, but i’ve not heard of them coming along to close anything.
today the queen went to the BBC to open their new building. And as a result they closed the bike parking, so the queen does close things after all !

i like how they’ve over-dubbed the original sign on this too.

pea beer

a pea dropped in my beer and sunk to the bottom. then the bubbles congregated and it bobbed to the top.
due to the level of the beer and the oldness of my favourite drinking glass it wobbled around in charle’s shirt until i retrieved it with a fork
