Happy St George's Day

I'm feeling homesick and extremely patriotic with my pint of cider. (and just a little tipsy)

Today is my sister's birthday and Shakespeare's birthday and the anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

And it's also St George's Day. St George is the patron saint of England - the one that killed the dragon!

Have a little listen to the below video it's one of my favourite songs and makes me a little weepy!

St. George's Day was on my calendar so I looked it up! I hope to get to visit your home country one day (my hubby lived there for four years, lucky guy). . . I've been reading a ton of Sharon Kay Penman and am in love with all the history!
