The Village Haul

by 3arn0wl

Following Justin Case’s recent find, Arky-ologists from the university have been down on the banks of the Bredy with their buckets and spades,  building sand castles sifting sand.

You wouldn’t believe the things they found:

  • and the bones of a cow. :/

Looks like the Moores are having a Barbie.

The International Jam-Bourée

by Poppy ♥

A large ‘congregation of’ W.I. members met for a jamming session at the jazz club in Chorley earlier today – and worked on head motifs from tarte au pommies.

After the customary preludes,

So everyone took a minuet to evaluate the situation.

But then, you’d have to flavour the English in a sticky situation like this.

Hey Day

by 3arn0wl

All the tractors have been out lowering: making hay whist the sun shines.

Winskill’s coming on apace: Bob’s laid the underfloor heating in the limecrete foundations and the steel frame’s in place. The glass walls arrive later this week, and then he’ll get the solar tiles on. They’ll be topping off in no time at all.

Meanwhile Grace Merryweather has been making a careful note of all creatures great and small in her garden.

Fa la la la la, la la la la la la la, la, fa la la la.

Lilly Watts flicked through her photograph album nostalgically. There she was, resplendent, and full of youthful zest, her May Queen costume looking remarkably similar to a bride’s dress.

She’d met Arthur that night, she remembered. They’d stripped him of the drab brown sack to reveal him in his skin-tight green-man garb, and she’d fallen instantly head-over-heels in lust.

They don’t do it now of course, but she wondered who it might’ve been this year. ………………….

Angel Feathers was at her Contemporary Dance class. The choreographer had got them doing a highly suggestive dance with long silk ribbons, and she hoped her glow wasn’t too obvious to the lads.

They’d had a good laugh in the end though – it seems that Kyle doesn’t know his left from his right.

Disaster for the Chorley Wanderers

… bondage for the troupe.

Queens’ birthdays

by 3arn0wl

Fingers crossed that the rain will hold off long enough this afternoon: Crispin & Jonathan are having a joint birthday party @ Cox’s Farm.

Obviously it’ll be a classy affair – as much an advert encouraging people to take afternoon tea in the orchard as a celebration of completing another perambulation around the Sun.

When they’d first met, they’d been amazed that they shared the same birthday! And after some research they decided that they’d test the Birthday Paradox each year, and invite 23 people to tea.
