Me an the littun had a good time. nice Tiara Effy, bet that needed a bit o polish after. How do ya sleep with that hair? Old Mabe and the uvvers scrub up ok don't they, almost good like. Me and littun went up west after the do and saw that thingy that was on tele - the DAFTAS I fink it is. Bit like the OSCARS fingy I went to for our gal's Skool cuple o weeks ago. Lots of well nown peeps. There was Richard Gear (cor he was all rite). Leonardi DiVinci wot was in that big boat film Titania. Keano Reeves - hes got older, he had a littel beard! Her that did That's life - Ester Ransom. Clive Owen (who?), JimBroadbean wot was her dad in Brijit Jones Dairy. Hermarny from Arry Potter - gorges littel thing. Kate wotsername. Lots of uvvers too but cant rememba names. I got chatted up by a copper. Made out like he was intrested in me camra but me an the littlun new wot he was reelly after. We cudnt get in the posh otel cos all the stars had booked the best rooms. We had to go back to where the do was eld and stay in one neer ther. Bit rubbish it was. Need lessons on cleanin and stuff they do. Bit like er at no 25. Skools closed for oliday or summink this week so I dont ave to go in to work and clean. Me sis is comin for a few days so ave ta go and get a bed redy for er. See ya later gals. Gladys xxxx

I'm a bit busy meself at the moment. I decided to start me spring cleanin a bit early this year and Fred says because I've been so good (dont arsk!!), he's goin to do some paintin fur me. I thought e meant sumfink like the Mona Lisa, but it turns out e meant the walls. Do yu know that yu can get coloured paint nowadays, not just brown any longer. Well, I'd better go an get on - try to catch yu all later. Luv as alas - Clara xx
