Happy St George's Day... one & all.

St George is the patron saint of England but unlike the Irish who celebrate St Patrick's Day with a passion, we English tend to be far more restrained and our national saint often gets barely a mention.

The George Cross is flying in my office, as it does every year but there seems to be even less acknowledgement of this event this year - perhaps because it is also the celebration period of Queen Elizabeth II reaching 90 years of age.

If you are celebrating St George's Day today, I hope you have a wonderful time.............................

We celebrate it very much in our home. Today I bought my red roses and roast beef was had. Sadly the st George cross often get used in the wrong context. Instead, it should be something to be proud off xx

Me again, actually it was interesting as all over Instagram today, lots of lovely people were wishing everyone a happy St. George's day, maybe it's becoming more acceptable xx
