DADDY PAPERSURFER IS HONOURED – a short play

Opening scene [DP on the sofa. Enter Lo, she is a terrible Goddess, stage right.] TG – Don’t forget that the Queen has offered you a Knighthood DP. DP – The hood of a Knight? Excellent – it’s getting a tad chilly, tee hee. No, I haven’t forgotten. [The TG exits, stage left.  DP continues […]

WHOOPS

Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I went for a walk down at Pett Level the other day and we spotted this ……. What sort of idiot parks their boat, presumably in this case for lunch, and fails to take into consideration that the tide has a tendency to go out as well as […]

I’VE CRACKED IT!!!

It’s taken me a long time – approximately 61 years 10 months and 17 days – but I’ve just managed to distil my thoughts of how to get through life into a simple sentence and a possible action. What do you do when the judge is asking you very awkward questions about what you were […]

BOUNTY

It’s that time of year again. The hedges are full of ripe and moist berries, sagging under the weight of fresh goodness and screaming out fertility. There are hips and haws, fields of cereals waiting to be harvested, the last of the fresh tomatoes from the garden. Mushrooms and toadstools are breaking forth from their […]

THE UPSIDE

Following on from yesterday’s post – I’ve recovered from the bout of mildew I caught whilst being made to cavort in the garden BTW – the upside is that Lo, she is a terrible Goddess wants a sculpture made. This one would have been very suitable ….. …… but no longer lives with us – […]

DRUDGERY DREAD

I knew the time had to come. With the new driveway done Lo, the terrible Goddess has now started putting her mind to getting the front garden into shape. As you can see it’s a completely blank canvas. (Giving it a shape, actually. Lo,TG Ed) “OK Peabrain, stand in the front garden and pretend to […]

A LOAD OF COBBLERS

We had our driveway dug up and replaced with faux cobbles last week…… ……… but more to the point they helped bring about this abstract picture….. ……. except it isn’t an abstract at all. This is a straight photo that has had nothing done to it except a touch of cropping. It’s a shot of […]

‘I’ BEFORE ‘E’ EXCEPT AFTER ‘C’

My spelling is awful and little mnemonics like this are very useful; especially now that I’ve reached the age ‘Beige’. Anything that will help me avoid heinous crimes of the spelling variety will mean I’m less likely to have to reach for the codeine bottle after finding myself mired in weird grammatical wrangles with feisty […]

SOME VERY GOOD ADVICE ….

……. although you probably won’t take any notice [sometimes I wonder why I bother]. (Nooo, surely not. Lo,TG Ed) There’s nothing like a grumble to really lift your mood, Express yourself out loud, it’s awfully bad to brood “Your skirt is way way way too short, it’s very very rude, Your ideas on elegance are […]

THE DOG WATCH

I apologise for the following images that some of you might find a tad upsetting. I came across an old photo album that belonged to my Mum and was reminded of the first dog I knew, Duchy. Duchy died peacefully one day, crossing the hall. She was replaced a little while later by Tessa: she […]
