A DAME EDNA MOMENT

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, last Wednesday I had a DAME EDNA EVERIDGE moment. 

I was choosing a new pair of glasses, “OH DEAR!” I hear some of you cry, remembering my last MARATHON attempt.

Ronald had gone walkabout as his shopping endurance levels had been depleted after visiting ONE SHOP to change a pair of TROUSERS he had bought with BUTTONS instead of a ZIP (don’t ask).

Faced with a confusing array of designs at the BUY ONE GET A SPARE PAIR FREE section, I was drawn inexplicably to this pair.

  
 I slid them on and they fitted perfectly hmmm I thought very 60’s and a bit Dame Edna, I took them off and found a rather smart GREEN AND TORTOISESHELL pair that were light and fitted, perfect for reading glasses.

Just then Ronald appeared, “All done?” He asked hopefully.

“What do you think of these?” I asked slipping on the DAME EDNA’s

After he stopped laughing he said ” they are perfect.”

I’m not sure if I really liked them or if I chose them in a FIT OF PIQUE.

I pick them up Friday, if it’s a FULL MOON and the GODS allowing.

Yours Glassily

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman as you can see I have a large piece of MATERIAL which I have to transform into a 1920’s style DAME’S DRESS.

You will also note the lovely BLONDE 1920’s STYLE WIG, which arrived via our lovely POSTIE this morning.

A TASSEL, A TASSEL, MY KINGDOM FOR A TASSEL

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, we are well into our pantomime rehearsals and it is going well and definitely coming together.  The cast have cast aside their scripts and are beginning to act onstage as well as off. 

Here is a picture of the last maid’s apron I have just finished and a smoking cap made out of a waistcoat. The cap is awaiting a large tassel, not easy to find are they ladies? I need to get my dear friend Veronica the famous forager to seek one out, she has a thing about tassels.

  
So my dear ladies and occasional gentleman I shout, A TASSEL, A TASSEL, MY KINGDOM FOR A TASSEL.

Yours Tassely

Celia
