Jubilee - and those dogs
No royal motif is left unexploited in the wave of Jubilee merchandise that is upon us. The Queen's corgis feature in surprising manifestations. Above, a Jubilee corgi cracker.
The limited edition Jubilee Marmite is now on sale - as the poster says, it's a love-it-or-hate-it thing. I love it, and will be buying my supply very soon before it sells out. Not too sure how long I can keep it tho - might not be a good souvenir to pass on to the grandchildren.
This blurry shot of the Jubilee crackers in Marks & Spencer was the result of a case of 'security-itis', that phenomenon well known to bloggers. I was happily framing the shot, and already planning the next one I would take (a winning composition of my 6ft plus son standing under a Jubilee crown pinata - apologies to Spanish speakers, I can't find the right accent to go over the 'n'), when a store manager materialised and stopped me in my tracks. Quite what the security aspect was I can't think. If I wanted to manufacture my own counterfeit corgi crackers all I had to do was buy a box and take them apart. I would have thought M&S would be glad of the publicity - export orders streaming in from across blogland for corgi crackers.
You'll see more Jubilee gems at Writing from Scotland, as well as a tale of being in a Royal presence. Christine has also featured the Ma'amite - it's irresistible!
