Come on Andy!

by 3arn0wl

Andy wanted a hand in Winskill,  and so he’d decided he’d fit the kitchen.

Admittedly he was coming at the sink from an unusual angle,  but thinking he was turning the nuts counter-clockwise,  he’d spent the best part of an hour tightening them! :/

Poppy phoned di godfather, but he said that Gerry was busy forging at the moment and so couldn’t do any counter fitting.

However!  Just at that moment Phil Anyould appeared (sporting a chicken under his arm)  to deliver a tray of eggs.  And during this rather strange hen-counter,  he stuck his head under the sink,  to give handy Andy a handy.

Father’s Day

by 3arn0wl

& Fr. Jamesbrother came to visit.  They reminisced about their late father and had crumpets for tea.

Poppy’s nipped over to di godfather’s with her kid.  He’s asked her to sit for him.

Justin Case gave his granddad the pole tacks he’d found whilst panning in the Bredy last Tuesday.

Rose Wood presented Dawn Redwood to her father.  He really wasn’t expecting a family tree.

And as Lord Rupert ascended the staircase in the Great Hall, he admired once more each of the paintings of his …. …..!

I went to the Auction & I bought…

Poppy watched the procession of ‘stuff’ going to the van as if she was a contestant on The Generation Game.

They’d only gone there to get the essentials for Winskill:  a bed,  a wardrobe,  a dining table and chairs, and a couple of lazy boys,  but in their excitement Poppy and Andy had got carried away, and were carrying away far more than they’d intended!

Amongst so many other things they’d bought themselves:

A kiddlytivytoo

D’oh!  I kid you not – Poppy & Andy have really got their hands full with the Waste Disposal Unit they got from the (live)stock market last month.

They’ve been giving her everything the book says she needs:  goat feed, hay and water.  But she will insist on her supplements. She’s:

  • Neatly trimmed all the bushes;
  • Helped herself to their dinners. Twice;
  • Nibbled half the awning and

The cricket season’s here again, and the Snodding & Sniffy side have challenged Chorley University’s First 11 to a match:

@ the crease

Harry Driver drove through the covers for a boundary;

Andy got caught L-B;

Oliver Over’s over’s over.  He’s out for a quack – ran out by Godwin Heal.  Captain Rupert, Lord Snodding’s had a good innings though. He’s got a century – looks like the 15th.

And @ tea, Crispin & Jonathan were two not out!

In the field

ᗡႱ bowled a maiden over;

Hugh Wood delivered a googly which Ray Burns blocked;

And Poppy was caught delivering a full toss behind the pavillion.

March 32nd…

… and there was April Foolery everywhere:

Tim Panini had put Fiona on the rota to work. When she got there she was greeted with “April fool”. She had the last laugh though – she wrote a spoof letter of resignation.

Jenny Darling dumped DJ by text message, which upset him momentarily, until a text five minutes later invited him ‘round for a Sunday Roast.

Harry had nipped out and put a “Sorry for the damage” note on his dad’s Leaf, then cracked up as he watched him give it a thorough examination.

Maria told her dad that she’d had her navel pierced. He went ballistic until she said “April fool”. She neglected to tell him she’d had a tattoo done though.

And Poppy chose her father’s birthday to tell him that they were having a kid. But  Eddie wasn’t falling for that old chestnut! April fool.
