I’ve been doing some intense and thorough research into one of the original bloggers and have turned up some interesting entries.


My wife, after the absence of her terms for seven weeks gave me hopes of her being with child, but on the last day of the year she hath them again … this is becoming a periodic drama! Lol

Montagu has just been made Earl of Sandwich – I wonder if there is a loaf big enough! Lol

So to bed, and my wife had a very bad night of it through wind and cold. Note to self – eat less beans! Lol

So home, and from thence to Mr. Hunt’s, and sat with them and Mr. Hawly at cards till ten at night, and was much made of by them. Home and so to bed, but much troubled with my nose, which was much swelled. Thinking of applying for job as Santa’s head reindeer! Lol

From thence I went to my office, where we paid money to the soldiers till one o’clock, at which time we made an end, and I went home and took my wife. As usual I managed not to wake her! Lol

[Bravo for Mrs Pepys. Save conciousness for something interesting. ‘Lol.’ Lo,TG Ed]


I shall continue my research after I’ve finished dealing with the Twiglet mountain that is blighting my life at the moment.
