THE CURIOUS CURIOSITY

THE CURIOUS CURIOSITY my dear ladies and occasional gentleman is the first book in the series about my dear village St Urith With Well.

ON SALE at 99p from AMAZON, EBOOKS or PAPERBACKS.

 Abridged Excerpt from ‘The Curious Curiosity’:

“This is the most excitement since Mr Mc Loosely was a guest at our WI.”

“Goodness really? What on earth was his talk about?” Asked Claire.

“He gave us a talk about surviving in the wild. It was all a bit boring until he was telling us how to forage for food, when Marjorie Phipps who quite frankly Claire could survive on her own excess body fat for at least three months….”

“That’s a bit harsh Aunty Pat.”

“But true Claire. Anyway on the pretext of going to the toilet she nose-dived into the tuna vol-au-vents and cut rounds. Irene Ingles, madam chairperson was furious and started to get up to go and stop her. The other ladies who hadn’t really been listening to Mr Mc Loosely, started to rise up out of their seats, thinking the talk was over and not wanting to miss the food.

Mr Mc Loosely realised he was losing his audience, picked up two sticks and loudly banged them together shouting ‘LET’S MAKE FIRE!’

The shout woke Wendy who was asleep in the front row,  she launched her bottle of elderflower water all over Mr Mc Loosely whose linen trousers went completely transparent. This stopped the stampede to the buffet in its tracks as we all realised Mr Mc Loosely went commando. It was the most exciting talk we’ve ever had at the WI.  Throw your blue light on the roof love and I’ll put me foot down.”

“I haven’t got a blue light Aunty Pat.”

“Starsky and Hutch always had a blue light! The Sweeney always had a blue light! You’re the police you must have a blue light !”

I would love you to read all about me and my friends. Go on treat yourself to a scrummy, yummy book.

Yours Readingly

RONALD IS MIFFED

RONALD IS MIFFED. You may remember hirsute Roley had broken Ronald’s KINDLE, this has meant more visits to the library.

Ronald drove to into town, parked and paid for parking Grrrh. Walked to the library, it was closed double Grrrh.

Two days later he drove to town, parked and paid for parking Grrrh. Walked to the library , it was closed treble Grrrh.

Two days later he drove to town, parked and paid for parking Grrrh. Walked to the library, it was closed, Quadruple Grrrh.

Ronald blames Harold the CROSS-DRESSING librarian because he was all in favour of reduced opening hours.

Harold said “It gives me more time for my new hobby, WIND TURBINE spotting, they are my favourite things after high-heels”

Ronald is suspicious because Harold is on the Town Council and he has a new BICYCLE!

SAVE OUR LIBRARY

 

Ronald has broken his KINDLE, disaster! So he went to the library and chose 7 books. Looking through them at home he realised he had read 6 of them!.

So We are off to a ‘SAVE OUR LIBRARY’ meeting. Poor Howard the cross-dressing librarian is distraught about its closure. He’s having to move branches. Howard doesn’t drive and can’t even ride his bicycle after that incident in his back-passage. I told him not to leave his bike there. That Mrs. Griffiths in the flat next door is no lightweight. I knew she’d put a dent in his spokes. It will be dreadful if the library closes. I just love to read. I’ve read 363 books on my kindle have you brought one yet?

SLIGHTLY DAMP CHOCOLATE BISCOTTI & NUTELLA CAKE

At our Mothers Union Kindle Group Meeting we all had to bring and share food. My dear friend Veronica had been on a course about foraging and I thought “why don’t I be really daring and try foraging myself”

So instead of popping into WAITROSE, Ronald took me to Blenheim Palace’s FARMERS MARKET. It was so exciting, I bought FILOImage baskets filled with KAROO COTSWOLD LAMB CURRY, PORTABELLO MUSHROOM ROULADE and a MOIST CHOCOLATE BISCOTTI & NUTELLA CAKE but I don’t like the word moist it has smutty connotations, so I called it slightly damp.

Although I can hardly bear to let the name past my lips, in my next blog I will tell you all about Valerie!

Yours Foragingly

DEATH OF A KINDLE

To get back to our KINDLE Group meeting, it was very exciting. We were critiquing, Dorothy Ledgers very own e-book. Quite honestly I didn’t know what to say. One doesn’t want to quash creative spirit but I’ve had more interest reading the instructions on a MARKS & SPENCER gourmet dinner. No wonder it only costs 44p. I think it was typed by a dyslexic school leaver. Not that I don’t have sympathy for dyslexics, I am short-sighted myself.

Of course LAYLA LAVERNE spouted on. She thinks she is a bony-fidy author since she had her letter published in ‘TAKE A BREAK’. With a name like hers I think she would be better suited to BURLESQUE!

Ronald is distraught, Roley jumped on his KINDLE and it is no more, it is deceased, gone to the other side.

Yours Sadly

KINDLE DEMISE

SPAM-MUSABE

Image

 

This is Veronica’s recipe for Spam Musabi. Unlike hers (see above picture) mine did not look at all appetizing and as I haven’t touched Spam since 1963, I wasn’t about to start now!. Veronica is into foraging and also likes to share her discoveries.Although after our recent Mothers Union Kindle Group meeting; I shall think twice before sharing other people’s culinary offerings. It’s not easy cleaning up after a miniature schnauzer they’re very hirsute.

Virginia that knitted sick bucket didn’t work, please test out your patterns yourself before you inflict them on the rest of us

More about the kindle meeting in my next post

INAPPROPRIATE READING

How much do I love my KINDLE? They are so much easier to read in bed than a book. I can increase the size of the print ( how good it would be if we could increase the size of things with the push of a button) which means I can read over Ronald’s shoulder without my glasses on, more romantic.

It was all fine until last night I was really engrossed, you know how it is when you are down to your last few pages “Kinsey was pressed up against the Xerox hardly daring to breathe. David and his GK9 was searching for her in the dark” BANG a mug of tea was SLAMMED down on my bedside table and Ronald stormed back out of the room. Well I didn’t know he had stopped.

This morning Ronald is sulking.

Yours In The Doghouse
