How many beans make 1½?

by 3arn0wl

How time flies!  It’s already Georgia, Lucida and Perpetua’s ½ birthday,  and although the girls won’t remember it,  Crystal and Norman are keen to mark the date.  They’ve invited some of their friends around for a Barbie.   The Ties are there of course, and the Youspell-Thats.  Emily and Alistair came,  as well as a smattering of doting relatives bearing gifts.

Unfortunately however, the weather put a bit of a dampener on the al fresco festivities, but the guests still entered into the spirit of the occasion and joined in the party games:

  • Postman’s knock;
  • Pass the parcel and
  • Pin the tail on the donkey. :/

Norm & the Social Climbers

by 3arn0wl

Norm-ally it’s a solitary thing. You choose your building, and go for it.  But in Poppleton there’s a group of social climbers,  led by social Norm,  who met in crepuscular light on the fortieth day of Easter, to scale the towers of St. Nick’s.

They’d walked around the church several times to determine the best way up, and equipped only with a torch,  ascended the Minster as the sun came up.  Once there, they unfurled a banner between the towers.

But how to get down?  Usually they abseiled,  but they didn’t want to damage the building, so they parachuted to the ground using the Dean’s vestments!

Afterwards they went for a coffee and a raisin cookie @ Dailey Bread.

Georgia, Lucida and Perpetua – the triplets born on Christmas day – were christened in a small, private service at the Minster church of St. Nicholas earlier today. Delighted parents, Crystal and Norman Font, were keen to give thanks for the safe arrival of their three darling daughters, who were long wished for.

Curate, Christine Tenning, had some initial concerns about identifying the identical infants,  until the parents confided that the children had been dressed in colour coded gowns for the occasion.

The trio made quite an impression during the short service: Georgia slept, Lucida wept, and Perpetua smiled seraphically!
