Did you all have a wonderful Christmas? I do so hope so.
We’ve shopped & shopped, wrapped up, cooked, eaten up, washed up, cleared up, unwrapped, jig-sawed, partied and sung carols to our hearts’ content.Read More
Christmas party time in Castle Coop!
Lady Egality and Sir Plym threw a wonderful Christmas party on Saturday evening, for us all .
Mince Pies and…some more Mince Pies:
I made some mince pies to hand around but then burnt them in the oven .. I had to make a second batch for the party.
I was pretty pleased with the way they turned out in the end
and thought the final result merited a few gold stars. Then Miss Pepperpot said perhaps she should help me the next time I tried making them which was a supportive comment I didn’t really appreciate.
Hot Punch and a Duet:
There was lashings of hot Punch to drink at the party which was so delicious that we all started singing ’Ding Dong Merrily’ very merrily indeed.. We became rather carried away and abandoned our cares. Sir Plym and Colonel Pyncheon duetted an a cappella version of ‘O Christmas Tree’ while the rest of us sang la-la as a background accompaniment and then Trev the Rev made pound coins appear out of Brown Owl‘s ear to great applause.
Yours, full of Christmas cheer,Read More

The agent and I are in crisis. Digby D, my faithful correspondent, has just emailed me. He writes, “According to the NY Times you are preparing for the worst storm in 60 years! Hope you have the hatches well battened – assuming you survive everything unscathed, I look forward to LL’s report on it all.”Read More
