What ho!

Bertie Wooster: Ha! Do you ever feel like opening the window and shouting
that the world is a wonderful place Jeeves?
Jeeves: Erm. . .no, sir.
Bertie Wooster: Or dancing in the street, scattering rose petals on the passers-by?
Jeeves: Only infrequently, sir.


'There is only one cure for grey hair.
It was invented by a Frenchman.
It is called the guillotine.'

I am going to see this.

Hoping to disprove another of Plum's utterances that 
everything in life that's any fun is either immoral, illegal or fattening.

Toodle-pip!

  1. Ooh, we're going there too the weekend after next, when we're visiting our London-based daughter. I hope you (and we) enjoy it.

  2. We did. I love an ingenious set. I'll say no more except to hope for you that it is still Stephen Mangan and that you do not have the deafening rustle of a huge bag of sweets in your right ear for the first 20 minutes. Everyone begged her stop in the end.

    1. Well, it should be S Mangan if it's not the understudy. How trying about the sweets. Grrr.

  3. I say, Lucille, sounds like jolly good fun. Except for the sweets, of course.

  4. Enjoy the play. I love your tulips too, and such a pretty jug. Most of mine have chips but it all adds to the character (and cuts down on price)!

  5. That was me with the sweets, you know.

    1. Well thank goodness it wasn't Ada. She might have offered me one. . . tragic theatre woman (59) chokes on Werther's Original.

  6. I got the boxed set of the Fry/Laurie version for Christmas. That's as close as I'll get to the live production, so I hope you will enjoy it very much. My daughter enjoys all the characters' names. I'm not sure I would like to be called 'Barmy' :)

  7. I love your grey hair! And your fingers. Together, and with the rest of you that I can see, they seem to say a lot about you. (of course, that's my interpretation)

  8. Hi Lucille,
    I've just been reading a bit more of your blog and am empathising about the dental work. We must have had the same dentist! I am practically living with mine at the moment. Rarely a week goes by without us seeing each other! In fact things have got so bad I now have two dentists, one for the normal work and one for the hardcore stuff. Stitches out next week...

  9. Oh, I do love Jeeves and Wooster. Those books make me laugh out loud - and have me utterly convinced I was born in the wrong era.
    Enjoy!
    Sarah :)
