Most displeased that preparations for Queen's Jubilee have started already. Heard nothing but, over breakfast. Other half and Mrs Payne most excited, said could see about making cakes and would visit neighbours.
Mrs Payne reminisced with pride had seen the coronation as a girl. Replied after some moments,
This taken altogether badly by Mrs Payne. Other half tittered a little and gave me a look.
Pleased to say silence returned to breakfast table, with only comment from Mrs Payne, requesting an envelope on which to write list of preparations. Finished toast and said I would go to work, with nothing said but Mrs Payne murmuring quietly,
"Yes... Hmm.. And clowns..".
