Today Lady Magnon goes off travelling again, leaving 'you-know-who' in charge of dog maintenance, egg collection, vegetable production, and just about everything else she could fit on her three page list of instructions.
But can you guess where she's gone? Here are some tricky clues.....
1. Its indigenous people are very fond of putting 'oo's in their place, and family, names.
2. Spelling has never been taught in this country; they even named their favourite beer 'xxxx'.
3. The country itself is only inhabited on its coastline; the huge interior is nothing but red dust and bouncy animals.
Any ideas yet?
4. There are more flies here per cubic foot, than grains of sand in the Sahara desert.
5. You dare not swim in the sea for fear of being eaten by sharks, bitten by sea snakes, or stung by jellyfish..
6. All 'given names' have been banned, other than Bruce and Sheila.
Have you got it? She's gone to Wales!
No she's hasn't. She'll be back in about 6 weeks (or so).
Oooh, that's a tough one Cro. I'll have to say...New Zealand? Well, next door to NZ, anyway. Am I close?ReplyDelete
I'm not saying; yet!Delete
Wow, six weeks - just think of all the things you can do. Chuck the list away.ReplyDelete
Fair dinkum ...
Oh dear - was it something you said! If you get lonely you can always talk to us.ReplyDelete
I've been abandoned.Delete
Make sure she packs her thongs!ReplyDelete
She's got the corked hat; thongs, I'm not sure about.Delete
I imagine the baby is almost due and she has come to the land down under...watch out William and Katherine and George are here too lol all in "in" crowd.Hope she has a great time..maybe some Aussies will correct a few of your hints.ReplyDelete
Hope baby arrives safe and sound and that she enjoys the other grandchildren as well.Happy egg collecting etc Cro.
About 3 weeks to go Carole.Delete
You are getting a grandchild Cro?Delete
Congrats! I am not online a lot these days.
Judging from your previous blogs you will manage very well on your own and when she returns the garden will be all neat and up to date, there will be a freezer full of good food and you will have a perfect welcome home meal on the table.ReplyDelete
How very astute you are Weaver; correct on every count!Delete
Will she bring you back one of those hats with the corks hanging from it?ReplyDelete
If I'm lucky; otherwise a Kuddly Koala.Delete
Bachelor days are here again for you. You seem to be able to take good care of yourself, and if there is a problem, just refer to those three pages of notes.ReplyDelete
I would assume she is going to Oz.
The 3 pages of notes are just JOBS I have to complete before she returns (or else).Delete
Sounds to me like she's going to the land of grandchildren (and kangaroos).ReplyDelete
Tie me Kangaroo down sport, tie me Kangaroo down....Delete
Went on my own when I was 19. Loved the place.ReplyDelete
Its on my bucket list to visit....I didn't know thy had THAT many flies though. 6 weeks is an awfully long. Good luck with the household chores for all that time.....and congratulations on the new baby to be!!!ReplyDelete
Safe travelling wishes for Lady M. I'm sure Haddok's and Monty and Bok will keep you busy whilst she's away.ReplyDelete
She sure gave you a long "honey-do" list!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to hear about the new grandbaby. :)
I didn't know about the flies! Eeyuw.ReplyDelete
