A HEN DO A’ DO NOT A COCK A’ DOODLE DO

A HEN DO A’ DO NOT A COCK A’ DOODLE DO.
Yes my dear ladies and occasional gentleman a first for me the modern ‘Hen Do’. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very pleased to be asked by the BRIDE TO BE a very charming young lady called Minoa.
We gathered in her mothers house a mix of LONG-LEGGED young ladies, beautifully dressed balancing on spindly heels and a few mature ladies in flip flops and sandals.
The bride was crowned with a TIARA and VEIL with the most unusual patterned lace TWO ROUND buildings either side of a TALL one and then was given a similar shaped sceptre in lurid pink to match.
Pinning on our hen badges we mounted the MINI BUS, much to the drivers consternation.The very organized M.O.T.B. asked a round of riddles, what larks. After my 3rd miniature bottle of something that tasted of FRUITY COUGH MIXTURE with VODKA. I realised that there was a penalty for not only getting the answer wrong but getting it right as well!
It was a bouncy ride between the various PUBLIC HOUSES,  drinking SEX ON THE BEACH dished out from a large THERMOS FLASK in the middle of the aisle.
A delightful young lady called Emilia a fellow gin drinker told me her breasts were kept in place with sticky tape to avoid unseemly BRASSIERE straps. (Handy tip)

We played some intimate and hilarious games with balloons, here is a picture of the bride.

It was a fun packed 8 HOURS and I discovered that with the odd PIT STOP for sustenance I can consume a rather large amount of GIN and stay upright. Although I wouldn’t want to do it every week.

Dear Minoa assured me that even though her and her fiancé were living together they had SEPARATE bedrooms until after their marriage.

I’m not so sure that’s a good idea. After all, you wouldn’t buy a TOOL before checking out its suitability for the job!

Yours Hen Peckedily

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

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.

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

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
