COTTON GUSSETS!

COTTON GUSSETS? I hear you ask dear ladies and occasional gentleman.

The definition of a COTTON GUSSET is a piece of material used to REINFORCE or ENLARGE A garment.

GUSSETS are very important and I employ all of you dear ladies now that SPRING has finally SPRUNG and the weather is warmer.

Only wear KNICKERS with a COTTON GUSSET, you will never regret it.


It may be that as the years roll by you may as the definition hints at, need to enlarge your gussets but do not despair. This means you have more to offer.

Yours Cottonly

HIDE AND SEEK AND HIDE THE SAUSAGE

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, as you can see Hirsute Roley had great fun today playing HIDE AND SEEK with the neighbours.

Ronald had been busy digging over a piece of garden for me. When I pointed out I needed the soil finer there was a bit of GRUMPING.

He cheered up watching Hirsute Roley and called out, ” when I’ve finished PAINT-ROLLING this earth, why don’t we play HIDE THE SAUSAGE?”

I expect like me this is a new game to you. I’m not sure if we need a DICE.

CUPCAKES, SCONES AND PRETEND BAKING HANDS

CUPCAKES, SCONES AND PRETEND BAKING HANDS


My dear ladies and occasional gentleman as you can see I have been baking for a Parish Cream Tea. The scones are hiding in the tin foil.

No Ronald! Just because you strategically placed your hands in the photograph the lovely ladies and occasional gentleman won’t be fooled into thinking you baked them!

A PLETHORA OF CHOPPERS!

A PLETHORA OF CHOPPERS? Whatever  can she mean, I hear you ask my dear ladies and occasional gentleman.

Well my dear friend Theresa and I went to a nearby market town for a little jaunt. Being market day there was plenty to see and imagine our surprise when we came across a PLETHORA of CHOPPERS.

This was very pertinent, for as you may remember we have a new WOODBURNER. Little did I know about the accessories Ronald seems to need for something that was meant to save us money.

He’s hankering for a new CHOPPER but not just any old chopper but one that has a SPECIAL head, one that splits logs.

Theresa who can spot a CHOPPER at 3 miles, found the perfect one amongst the many but unfortunately when she went to lift it, found that it wasn’t quite right.

“It’s a bit heavy and too short for Ronald” she said “He’s used to a longer one.”

I bow to her superior knowledge.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR QUEEN ELIZABETH 

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, what a day.

My dear friend her Maj is 90 years old today

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR QUEEN ELIZABETH.

I must say she looked a picture. What fun we had shopping for her BIRTHDAY FROCK.

I must be DISCREET and LOYAL so I can’t give too many secrets away but I’m glad she took my advice.

Just lets say we enjoyed a few giggles and COCKTAILS.



How clever they MATCHED the TRAFFIC LIGHT to her OUTFIT.

Sadly I couldn’t make it to WINDSOR today but dear HER MAJ quite understood and we’re having a little get together in the summer.

Ronald bless him decided to LIGHT the new WOODBURNER in celebration as a BEACON.


Dear HER MAJ has promised to borrow dear PHILLIPS BINOCULARS to look for the BEACON as it is a fair distance from WINDSOR to DEVON.

HIP HIP HOORAY for dear HER MAJ.

Yours Celebrataly

P.S. The wonderful TORRINGTON CAVALIERS are lighting a beacon TONIGHT on the COMMON. What loyal subjects they are.

RONALD’S CHOPPER AND MAN’S RED FIRE

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman I don’t think Ronald has been this excited since my UNDERWEAR was left accidentally at SCHIPHOL AIRPORT as we flew on to FRANCE.

He was desperate to get his hands on his CHOPPER.

It hasn’t been used in quite some time. 

I’m not sure I could even find it.

  
Thoughtful daughter sent this in the post. It arrived on the perfect day.

Today. 

The day we had a WOODBURNER installed.

I’m looking forward to EXPERIENCING the SCANDINAVIAN WAY.

Yours Tinderly
