The Most Wondrous of Gifts

It’s not very often that we are rendered totally speechless, but last night the Lovely Laura’s mum, the Equally Lovely Denise came over to partake in an evening of nuptial crafting in preparation for Tom and the aforementioned  Lovely Laura’s much anticipated matrimonial celebrations and she bought with her the most wondrous presents ……..
Tatter jacketsAs we each held our parcels, chicly wrapped in en trend French gift wrap the excitement was both tangible and palpable.
092We let Nigel open his parcel first …..
Tatter Outfit
….. to reveal the most perfect miniature Morris Dancing outfit, a hat, a tattered jacket and crocheted clogs complete with bells, all of which he put on immediately ….. welling up as he did so.
Morris Dancing OutfitsI opened my parcel next to reveal the same ensemble, only a bigger version ….. and I too just had to put it on straight away, sniffing in as manly fashion as I could muster.
Te=attered Jackets Morris DancingI don’t think I have ever felt so special, so quaint and so quintessentially English before.
Morris Dancing CostumeAnd then it was Darrell’s turn and I think we all knew what the Equally Lovely Denise had made for him too.096It was all too wonderful …….. and Darrell was not ashamed to sob ….
Morris Dancing Tatters…….. Just how splendid did we look?  We are now honorary unofficial, official members of the Ironmen and Severn Gilders Morris Dancers, It has been decreed that Nigel is allowed to dance/perform with hankies, but is “banned” from dancing with short sticks until properly tutored …. hopefully by the Equally Lovely Denise.
This also bodes very well for Tom and the Lovely Laura’s nuptial entertainment …… let the practicing commence with all due diligence for “the first dance”!!!!

What effort has gone into these. You are truly blessed in a truly blessed type of way.
You will be Morris dancing on the Iron bridge at, err, Ironbridge, as soon as you can shake a stick at it.

Oh WoW - fab fab fab Denise, how wonderful do those boys look? - we have an affinity with the aforesaid Morris Dancers in this household. Not so much with the dancing but more in tune with the music - similar to which can often be heard emanating from our brick walls. Happy days!
