The third episode of The Crown that we watched yesterday evening slipped back to 1936 and ‘The Abdication’ which I featured in an earlier post. This happened six years before I was born, but it was the event that propelled first her father King George VI to the throne and, just a few years later, our current Queen Elizabeth II.
Today I continued to doze away until late in the afternoon I came to life again, and recovered enough appetite to enjoy a dinner of
Jackie’s succulent beef and mushroom pie, roast potatoes and parsnips, crunchy carrots and cauliflower, and tender cabbage
like the Culinary Queen, Becky and Ian, on a tray on my knees while watching episode 4 of The Crown which dealt with the Smog Crisis of 1952 featuring on an earlier post of mine.
