FRENCH AND SAUNDERS BOP A DOO EEE OOOOO......
Well, what can I tell you?
They were every bit as fantastic as I knew they would be...only very much more so :)
I felt a certain kinship with the lovely Ms Saunders as she does, in fact, spend a goodly amount of time surfing the 'interweb'. Then again, the lovely Ms French is mad for chocolate - there's nothing to choose between the two of them.
Moogsdad bought me the souvenir programme - which is the best theatre programme I've ever had as it is full of very funny and very interesting info on the 'lucky bitches' - and no cruddy adverts!!
They wore these fabulous Simon Cowell trousers throughout the show. Must get me some :)
It's hard to believe they're both 50 and have a comedy career spanning thirty years - for most of which I've been a huge fan!
This makes me feel very old as some ridiculously young people who are also fans have possibly only been aware of them for the past ten years!!!
Here's a fact or two from the programme:
Jennifer's first job: Never had one.
One of Jennifer's phobias : being forced to climb up a very tall crane.
Dawn's weight: Perfect weight for size.
First job: Chambermaid and Gentlemens' Fancy
One of Dawn's favourite countries: Narnia
There are lots more but if I divulged any more secrets I'd have to kill you........or face prosecution for breach of copyright. I'd risk the first but not the second ;)
I bought me this, to drink every bit of my daily intake of fluids from henceforth - including wine!
Tea works well in it - especially with a little something to stop it being too wet :)
The show was just brilliant, with some familiar characters - including the old ladies on mobility scooters, Jennifer 'doing' Madonna, a brilliant rerun of the original sketch that led to Jennifer Saunders writing Absolutely Fabulous and the two girls at the bus stop discussing contraception - which, if you're not sure involves dozens of towels, a todger like a cactus, thousands of fish and green slime!
For a finale they came on as the big fat randy old men - complete with swinging lifelike dangly bits that 'accidentally' fell out of their trousers - this had Moogsdad in tears of mirth. Boys - they always laugh at the willy gags!!!
One of the highlights ( for me!!) was Dawn French strapping on a chocolate detector and going round the audience collecting a bucket load of chocolate and doing naughty things with a mini video camera :)
Just the best night out ever!!!!!
As if all that wasn't enough excitement for one day how about this:
My lovely friend Mrs Trash sent me this fabulous birthday present.
Complete with a gorgeous new cuddly friend in my favourite colour!!
He made himself at home straight away.
I emailed Trashy straight away to thank her and tell her I'd called him Leopold the Leopard.
It wasn't until a couple of emails later that she kindly told me he's a monkey!!
Maybe I need to try him in different poses?
Thanks so much Trashy - I love him - and species really is not important......he's not going to be breeding after all.........
Sewing has taken a back seat this week as we've been gardening. Father-in-law made himself useful yesterday by finishing off the raised bed that Moogsdad had started to build.
It's now seeded and slug-proofed (beer traps) and dog-proofed (fence) and hopefully going to produce a bumper crop of delicious fresh veggies.
Trouble is, it's full already and I could do with another three for the other seeds I've sown and all the packets of seeds I bought in a moment of overenthusiastic 'self-sufficiency' daydreaming!!!
I've done this too:
and these will be delicious and heavily cropping spuds!!!! Grown in empty compost bags as shown in Gardener's World magazine.
Minx helped and has planted her window box.....not showing the inside of the Wendy House as the little b**gers made mud pies in there last Thursday!!!
One very last bit of rambling.
Some people ( naming no names MONKEE MAKER!!) seem to be struggling with consuming their Easter chocolates - more specifically chocolate bunnies.
Minx was given this one yesterday and here's what she did with it........within about thirty seconds!
No sentiment that child!
If it's still a problem MM, send it to Minx - she'll be happy to help :)
