The Queen hosted a state banquet with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia today and eagle-eyed Jeana caught her feelings about this on camera.
Clearly “up for the cup” would not be the best description of her feelings about the ensuing lunch.
Maybe she’s been spending too much time with Pheelip.

Four of the handsomest chefs on the planet cooked a three course meal (with three or four choices per course) for 60 of the ladies of Holy Cross Parish on Saturday. Given that I was at it from 10 am to 11pm the day after the hedonistic Scottish Advertising Awards it made for a tough gig.
My dad did it for years, so I took his place this year.
But we made at least £500 profit for charity so can’t really complain.
At least we looked good.
My mother made this in a mosaic night school class in the 1970′s. I quite liked it at the time, but I saw it in a new light when I stayed overnight with her at the weekend.
I think it’s lovely.
