Sorry Revellers, have just managed to crawl out of my roof box for a while ~ not sure if its the cornish air or quite what , but i'm really quite poorly, and before anyone asks , no i didn'rt over~indulge last night! What ever it is its covered me in a rash from head to toe and made all my limbs hurts ~ maybe being curlied up in the roof box hasn't helped, but never the less is warm and cozy. Funny about old crone, wonder where she did pop of to? maybe we havent found the right house after all? Jess

Came outside into the garden, we have piped punch ''a la garden hose'' and black sausages ............. Everyone has had far too much to drink and so we are slumbering gently....... Luckily I had the foresight to bring some Anti-Itch cream as the tinsel is causing a few problems............but after a few glasses of punch and milky Baileys the sensation is wearing off......... Someone has fallen into the latrine trench., but they are now unrecognisable.......... Yes, funny about the kumquats........they must have flown here first class!! Merry Merry

Sorry Im late, everyone. Had a slight altercation with the Fat Man over some Lapp Dancers and he put me out a roof top or two too soon. I've been on the tiles since midnight and I'm not feeling very steady now. From the sounds of the party, it seems my flying cumquats got there before me. Hope you've saved me something nice to drink. Eech! Ouch! There are still some live embers in this fireplace. Greetings, all. Very pleased to finally meet up with you Macbev.

So, Tina and Jess (and Bobbin).....Here's the house with the latrine trenches.......One side has decs up, so Crone's must be the other side......Yes, I can smell the sprout soup and the bath punch....... Oops....sorry, passed out there for a moment....... Good job I'm not at home....usually by this stage I have shouted at the kids a dozen times, burnt a couple of saucepans, found a solid bottle of Champers in the freezer, cleaned chocolate from 101 places.....and generally had a nightmare time.....this is much better...... As Olde Crone isn't here, I've done a search and found the barbie and coal etc etc and got that lit......suppose these items are for us to eat........sausages, chicken legs and custard powder.......sounds great......... Might take my combinations off's quite sunny.......What do you mean, ''Don't''!! OK, I'll keep them on then..........just help me drag these sofas into the garden...... I've rigged up a piece of garden hose from the bath down to the garden with a tap on the end, so we are OK for punch..... Merry

Good morning Merry and Tina, Seasons Greetings to you both and to everyone who has accompanied us on our Incredible Journey (sure I've heard that title before). Perhaps Olde Crone has had a change of heart and has decided to enjoy herself !!! I think I will join you in a date or two. Here you are...have a bottle of perfume each....which would you prefer Evening in Paris or my favourite California Poppy? The other intrepid travellers all seem to be busy elsewhere so I will just tag along with you, if that is alright. Beryl x

Gosh, Merry, wasn't it amazing up there? The things that you see in people's back gardens. Men sleeping it off from the night before (presumably locked out when they got home from the pub). Kids fighting over toys. Women quietly weeping in a corner before they collect themselves again and return inside to continue with the fray. Truly it is the season of peace and goodwill. Tina

Hey, I HATE heights, Tina............ Isn't that the latrine trench over there????? We should be able to walk.......Up Church Lane, turn left, then second right and she lives one side or other of the latrine trench........ Fingers in ears whilst I make a tiny hole in a balloon......... BUMP.....Aggghhhh! Merry

So if we use one of these flying craft to go up and look for the latrine ditches from a distance, then plot it on this map, we should be able to make the party (by ourselves, or otherwise.....) Up you go then Tina! Brill idea about the Baileys dates.....yummy......almost as good as the sprout soup I'm looking forward to......... Merry


TinaTheCheshirePussyCat Report 25 Dec 2005 10:04

Hi Merry, Jess, everyone at the Star Inn. Well, if Olde Crone is not going to make herself known, we could work out which is her house by the fact the the house next door is a) empty b) has latrine ditches dug all across the back lawn Then we could light the barbie in OC's back garden and party on. I expect she has left all the goodies in the house - I bet I could force a window somewhere. (I once watched someone break into a house - it was frightening how competently he went about it!) You don't think OC is hiding inside do you? Soon flush her out if she is! Tina (working up to the challenge of the day) PS If you soak the EatMe Dates in the Baileys for a while, it softens them up nicely.

Maybe we should stay here at the Star Inn and begin our ''non-celebrating''?? Pass us a kumquat.......Yummm............ Ta...... Would anyone like a lovely Eat-Me date? Sorry they're a bit hard..... Where's the Baileys? AND, can I have my pressie yet, Jess?????????????? Merry

How very very odd~host a party then not be in ~ actually we just kind of 'descended' on Crone, when she foolishly uttered ''come to Me then''. 'Merry something' all you people that are gathered here for some sort of celebation(which in case anyone forgets) ISN'T CHRISTMAS! Break out the pickled kumquats! Jess


Unknown Report 25 Dec 2005 07:35

Hiya Merry! Un-merry C*^$#*s greetings to you. lol! No sign of the old bat yet? Not trapped in her coffin is she? If that doesn't bring her out of hiding nothing will! Rebs x

Merry settle down and go to sleep now, i'm sure crone will be bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning - she is probably getting her beauty sleep , as you should be. Pressie tommorow, if you settle down NOW Jess

No Malc - you are misunderstanding ~ we are going to crones to AVOID all the stuff . No celebRating thank you. sit down and be grumpy please with the rest of us. Merry will soon get her pressie from me ,not long to wait now Merry! can you stand the anticipation or would you like a peep now? seriously getting quite worried where Crone is , she seems to have banged her head more than once in the last couple of days, hope she is okay (no, i mean really!)
