We had a lovely street party today in honour of the Queen's Birthday.
Everybody brought a plate of food in great kiwi tradition
and what a spread we had.
A good cup of English Breakfast tea in fine bone china
to warm us up. It was fairly chilly but that didn't stop us having fun.
It's great to live in a street where we meet regularly together to share food and drink
and to catch up on each other's lives.
There are a lot of folks coming to Christchurch from the UK and other places
to work on the rebuild of the city (both residential and commercial)
and some of them came too.
We got dressed up in red white and blue or some fancy jewels
just to add a sense of occasion.
God save the Queen!!
