Bugger off ! We’re closed !

I’ve been working through the night; forced to take drastic action following the real threat of an invasion from uninvited guests.

Yesterday, Susie Kelly from “Dial a Dog Wash” fame announced to all that she could be coming to Sprodlington to pay me a visit. Now, most people would wait to be invited (perhaps it’s a French thing not to)and in this instance the wait would have been terminal. Inviting yourself, well it’s just rude!

The benefit of being a Hardware shop is that I have lots of boards and wood around. Yesterday, I put both my shop and myself into hiding. I am closed today anyway as it’s Sunday.

Ms Kelly is firstly visiting Doris Brazil in Bovey. I worry though, that in her fragile state of mind, whether Doris will recognise her and if she does whether her mind will retain the information. Doris recently confused herself over which of her customers had a wooden leg!

I hope that by taking my shop into camouflage, its enough to keep Ms Kelly at Doris’ and is a clear message that we are a more selective with our customer base here in Sprodlington.

I am going fishing for the day. I’m not saying where though for fear of being stalked again!

Whatever happened to Hinge and Bracket ?

There are sweet two ladies who have become great friends through their blog sites. But its a remarkable coincidence that at the same time the fabulous comedy duo Hinge and Bracket disappeared from our screens.

Are these two now Doris and The Clone

Now, I have been wrong before, but these two characters bear a remarkable resemblance to dear old Doris Brazil from Appleton Marsh and a rather interesting character called Blarney Crone.
Now, if these two are not Dr Evadne Hinge and Dame Hilda Bracket, then they definitely should be.
