Thought I'd better edit that line. You lot are probably far too young for Dr Seuss quotations. I don't like Christmas. And I haven't done anything. And I don't do presents. And you are making me feel guilty, which I should feel because I am so slack.

Well I have made my pudding and I have bought my cards, and I have planned to go buy the plants I'm giving to workmates (but they don't count as presents because you don't wrap them) and I have, I have, I have oh blimey there must be something else I've done.

It is raining today. Raaaaaiiiiing, wet, mucky stuff and in December. There goes the cricket. We have a fight on our hands against the West Indies, and it rains.

Mumble, mumble, mumble..............

By the way Mo if ever you have the chance you sneak in and pinch the throne and Her Maj's accoutrements. Fair drives her barmy it does. Also a quick slick of paint any colour other than red and white will put you on her right side. Here take this can of yellow and green striped paint and repaint the throne room.

Her KQ Maj will be soooooooooooooooooo surprised!!


AuntySherlock Report 7 Dec 2009 20:08

Oh you'll know where she is. Moves with the speed of a thousand startled gazelles on that flaming broomstick.

The accoutrements are the crown, the laser gun, the broomstick, the arsenal flag and the throne. There are also some very scratchy Queen recordings, particularly Killer Queen,. This can sometimes be heard quavering on the evening breezes as she zooms her way through the open kitchen window at Nut Lodge.

Can quite remember the current configuration of the crown. At one stage it was red and white with horsetails and faux fur. Not certain about it now.

You don't have to feel bad about it Aunty!!

I haven't made a pud or a cake so you're doing ok!!

Ooooh, Mommy, a fresh lick of paint in the throne room is just what is needed. Glitter is a good idea too!!!


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 20:21

Crown is Red and White with tinsel and flashing lights all ready for Christmas of course. YG where's my pressie then LOL.


AuntySherlock Report 7 Dec 2009 20:50

You see MommyChristmas. Quite easy to pull the faux fur over her eyes. Just trot off and paint the throne room with that stripey paint. Her Maj will never notice.

Tee Hee!!


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 20:56

Oh yes I will notice, I will strip all paint off the wall with my laser and re paint red and white stripes. Hands off the curtains with the cannon and shields on too. LOL


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 21:05

Send for the firemen they will wash it out for you.

PS Lets see how long it is before YG flys back onto the thread with her tongue hanging out drooling LOL


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 21:14

Just push the big red button on the throne room wall wait for the loud bang then call 999. Oh by the way best run when you push it possible it will backfire


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 21:19

LOL MO. We can all dream can't we ? My dynamite and laser would be the death of you LOL


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 21:25

I don't think that would have caused problems, only telling the truth LOL


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 21:30

YG Report 7 Dec 2009 22:03

gold tassels to tie on the end of the broomstick on their way.


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 22:11

LOL YG I knew it wouldn't be long before you appeared LOL. Pressie sounds good. I will be sending you a pack of knicker elastic as it could be a bit draughty for you otherwise


YG Report 7 Dec 2009 22:14

I've been a busy girl trying to sort pressies on line. It reduced me to swearing and cursing!!

Phoned a big store to find out when stock was coming in, got through to an advisor quite quickly and was then left hanging for 15 mins with a repetitive message telling me how busy they were and suggesting I phoned back another time. Arrgggghhhh!!!!!


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 22:27

I have been sitting here designing and printing certificates for Rainbows and Brownies and writing out their Xmas cards.


LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 22:32

YG Report 7 Dec 2009 22:32

I'm off to bed now. Had a really busy day today at work and another one looming tomorrow. Roll on next week, got two days off, so only three to work, then four the week after and then its Christmas!!!

LaGooner Report 7 Dec 2009 22:38
