As I have brought my easel and paints with me I think I shall paint a picture of these wonderful goodies.
What a helpful taxi driver you sent to pick me up Cynthia, thank you, he was so kind to me, he said I reminded him of his mother.
This Mantovani disc is wonderful such restful music, thought those in the quiet room would appreciate it.
What a shame that our Wayne hasnt turned up maybe he will pop in later, we do miss him dont we?.
Byeeeee again

Hi Everyone

It is getting late and I might have to go off to bed.

My last clue is
I have made many preditions that have come true and my first name is

Sorry we missed in transit ,there is plenty of food left ,the boys are very late.



Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 17:08

Hi, just popped out for a while to see my family. Very nice it was too. Would you believe that both of my children bought the same card!!! It was a humorous one - so either they share the same sense of humour of it was just very apt for me!

All that travelling, especially across the channel, have turned me into an old crone - goodness knows what I will be next.

Frank may well be away enjoying the baby shower bless him. I do hope it doesn't deter Robert from saying hello.

Hopefully we may all be around later this evening to see who we have guessed who we are.

The food that has arrived so far looks simply luscious - I think we are permitted a little tasting session as the evening draws in.

Must go and see if FBG is available.


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 17:20

Two minds with but a single thought Cynthia. I've just PMd her.

Glad you enjoyed your outing. Old crone! is that a clue?:-)) Not the truth surely.

I was hoping to see Robert to give him a hug to apologise for my silly little jest the other day. Is he back in his shell again do you think?


Well I don't know. You try to make sure someone isn't missing out and what do you get for your pains? Accusations of harassment and being told they are ******* working!! :-)))


FannyByGaslight Report 29 May 2010 17:29


Hoppy Bufdy Cynth.
Hello all

Your Ggrandad Robert Roys name was James Roy and he was a labourer..

I do hope your Briaris etc etc lot are nearly sorted as I am a busy woman at the mo,but you do have backup with Jan thank Evans...

Ishbel is well as is Bethany,off to feed all and sundry in a bit as I can hear someone outside shouting her head off that its dinner and bed time..and my back door gets thinner by the day with the claw marks in it..

And will you lot stop pming me I AM TRYING TO WORK !


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 17:35

You're here at last Viv


Good to see you. Do not forget to leave a clue please when you're finished seeing to the animals. Great success on the Briaris front thank goodness. Now in contact by direct e-mail with two real people who were born with the name. I told them of one they had missed and they told me of one I had. Sent family photos which were very well received. Their great great grandfather was my grandfather's elder brother. Absolutely wonderful.


Edit: Will not PM again - I promise.


Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 17:52

Such a drama queen isn't she?? But she's good at what she does (whatever that maybe). I will make sure that she gets the dog food delivered to her and a few goodies thrown in for good measure.

I think I have sussed Evelyn, Sue and Anne - nearly got Josie but need to check - Reece???? mmmm thinking. Meanwhile,
I will wave my lacy cuffs at you and depart for a while.


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 17:59

I'm absolutely 100% sure I know Kiwibird, Tabitha and Reece's alter egos. Think I've got one other but not absolutely sure. YOU have got me absolutely stumped.

Have I told you about my daughter? I think she and her red hair are destined for great things.



Tabitha Report 29 May 2010 18:02

Ok - whats happened to the party?

I nip off to the quiet room for a snooze while Cynthia is out & we have a fight going on.

Break it up girls

Evelyn - stop sneaking Lamintons - we have loads of food waiting to be cooked & eaten - Josie have you surfaced again yet or have you joined Robert & found yourself a shell to hide in.

Cynthia - load up the CD & lets get this party going - the rain has stopped and we can party.

Reece - whats your poison?

Susan - I know who you are I bet I know a book you have just been reading & very good it was too.

Ok - lets get going


Robert Report 29 May 2010 18:06

Sorry, Folks,

Got lost in Oxford Road Station, found myself in a tram car and finished up in Bury.
Tram cars in a Railway Station? Strange people those Mancunians/Lancastrians!!!


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 18:30

Hi Robert

So pleased to meet you. Big hug. Hope I'm forgiven.



Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 18:41

Just called back in - hope I haven't caught the plague whilst I have been out. You never know who you travel with do you?

Robert, welcome - I hope the chair I have chosen for you is comfortable.

Well, the music is going and I can see Evelyn having a little 'bop' over there next to the food table.....she's eating and dancing....some woman!

Anne, I think Reece could do with a top up please.

Must get some more bottles in - will bring you yours in a tic Robert.


Evelyn Report 29 May 2010 18:47

Oh heck Robert you have cracked your shell, we must quickly do a repair job on that. It is lovely to see you here and I hope you enjoy yourself but please dont eat too many Lamingtons.
I knew you would all get my hero but I admire him so much I dont mind being found out, I found Reeces very easy, it was the fruit that did it.
My Grandad Roy told me his father was called Robert and I thought he said he was an upholsterer but as I am a bit long in the tooth I could well have got that wrong.
Now please can I take Ishbel and Bethany for a walk, I must work off some of these calories.
When I come back from walkies can we put James Last on and do some graceful waltzes?
Bye for now


Evelyn Report 29 May 2010 18:48

Cynthia please dont let everyone know that I am only drinking water


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 19:02

Damnation - this extra digit keeps getting in the way and what I'm trying to put keeps coming out wrong.

Sorry I'm not being the life and soul of the party but I've something on my mind. Think my OH has a roving eye. Caught him looking rather fondly at a young lady. I'll try not to lose my head and do something rash but it is rather worrying. Think I'm going to have to slip away for a while to see what I can see. Back in a couple of hours I hope.



FannyByGaslight Report 29 May 2010 19:10

I was born about 1530, illegitimately to a woman called Miss Jones in Wales,I lived and died in Wales.
Many myths abound about me.


Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 19:28

Well! I never knew that you were older than me FBG!!


Hope everything is ok with Jeanie and her OH - better save a seat for her Sue.

Are you still seeking me???


Tabitha Report 29 May 2010 19:41

Evelyn - its not just water you have there - its a special blend - won't tell you whats in it - but it will have you & Robert dancing the night away

Can't beleive Frank has deserted us

Nice to have you back with us FBG - We have plenty of dog food here thanks to Jeanie. Also loads of food for the human variety as well.

See the fruit platter is getting empty - must make up some more - anyone want the chocolate fountain on - to go with the fruit or do you want the champers yet to dunk the strawberries in .

Hope you like the cake Cynthia - a speciality of Brighton - curtesy of Choccywoccydoodah - wasn't sure if you liked Milk/plain/or
white so got a mix of all 3 with Marshmallows - check out the website - added a few butterflies for you - you should take a look at the wedding cake options on the website. We have had a few of these in the office.

Will wonder off to get the fruit sorted & open a botle or two for you.

Last clue - everyone should get this now

She was Queen of one land & Empress of another


Kiwibird Report 29 May 2010 19:55

Good Morning or in your cases Good evening everyone

sounds like would not know the difference anyway

between the Lamingtons and the wine that seems to have been consumed.

I have worked out who you are Evelyn, Anne and Sue but
Jeanie you seem to have gone to the dogs!!!!! still trying to work out whether you have come as a dog or have brought dogs with you.

Enjoying your music have brought along some Mancini to go with the mantovani.

Ahh ! is that one last Lamington that has escaped your grasp ladies
Del.......... icious as I stuff my mouth,
