I’m probably allergic to fevvers.


Then avoid aviaries, certain duvets, boas (the other kind as well, one can’t be too risk averse, imo, and there’s always quetzalcoatl to bear in mind), and venues offering burlesque entertainment.

My usual fee: 50 guineas.


Hello, Hearthrug. Pull up a chaise and have a quick snifter of whatever is your pet tipple.


Welcome Hearthrug!

I’ll leave the makings of summat medicinal on the table—don’t want to get too close in case I trigger any allergies.


Have slept for an hour,& will prolly, hopefully, sleep some more

I took a spare pare of Shoesies but didn’t change them

Slammers, anyone ?



Or, indeed, slippers…
Oh gwan then, Dahlink. Don’t mind if I do (which has always seemed to me a slightly daft phrase, but wotthehell)


Oh, good thought!


Was that hearthrug in here ?

I am in need of a footrest after a day of baking
Rum and pineapple cake bread mince and onion pies and a simple Vicky sponge


and not a comma in the house.
Hoping that “bread mince and onion pies” might turn out to be the basis for a stuffing…

ODFOG covers it nicely, don’t you think?


Gus dear heart

I can’t see the comma button on my phone and I have phat phingers so I just does my best


Home safe ‘n’ orf to me nest.



Twellsy, there is sometimes the overpowering need to be a complete arse.
Yrs, buttockly


They’re not wrong about 14th Feb
Birds screaming wingover obscenities at one anuvver at the top of veir fevvery little lungs

Still. A spot of ombra mai fu is doing sterling service to drown 'em out.

Counter-irritant? Nah, just a countertenor.


Lots of luvverly fog (can’t even see as far as the main road) so the birds are mostly staying quiet in case something goes (swoop) (gronf) (swoffle).



May I tell of a wonderful gift I got today?

I am now the proud owner of a full bottle of Gunpowder gin

I am a happy old bat


The fog has burned off a bit and the crows are making the most of it. (They usually hide from the Grate Big Birds.)

Need any help wiv that gin, Twellsy?


Well I can’t get the seal round the top open to see if it has gone off dear sparrer

I can offer a bacon butty and a brace of glasses with a slice of lime and a bottle of fevertree to anyone helping with this seal


[enthusiastic peckity]

Grate Big Birds are about now.


Where? I knew I should have gone to Specsavers.
