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 ……..
As we each held our parcels, chicly wrapped in en trend French gift wrap the excitement was both tangible and palpable.
….. 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.
I 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.
And then it was Darrell’s turn and I think we all knew what the Equally Lovely Denise had made for him too.It was all too wonderful …….. and Darrell was not ashamed to sob ….
…….. 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”!!!!
