Letters to the weekend #3

Wonwell Estuary

I found myself all alone this long weekend which as the Mother of Introverts I do rather like now and again. I did a tiny bit of out-roverting but mostly I pottered about the new house, read a book, cwtched Pete and Betty too much and watched Alien. I thank yow!

So to this weekend….

Dear Em and Ms Felange (her self chosen blogland pseudonym!) thank you for making me laugh so hard I pee’d a little on Saturday. Thanks too for encouraging me to draw a faux moustache on my face and hatch dastardly revenge plans involving over sized Disney princess castles and Angela Lansbury.

Dear Ms Felange’s amazing mamma (that sounds like a circus act…) thank you for the raspberries fresh from your garden that went so beautifully with the prosecco and giggles. And on that note dear ALL THE WINE thank you for sparing me the agony of a hangover even though friends and I used and abused you. See above.


Dear rubbish weather, you brought the husband back from his camping adventure 12 hours early and it was swell to see his little face, so thanks for that.

Dear new house, even though you aren’t even slightly finished yet I do love you very much and it was bodacious to spend some time alone with you this weekend. Sorry about the nudity.

Dear Advocate for Dogs, whilst I appreciate the convenience of carrying out all wormy-fleay things on the mutts in one go with one ‘spot on’ treatment, I don’t think the potential risks are made clear enough on your packaging and you nearly ruined Betty. I’m mostly a light hearted blogger but after the horror of seeing my Betty dog go from playful and cuddly to a pooch who was scared of her own shadow, who hid for five hours under the bed and who didn’t seem to recognise me through her glazed over eyes – even though I only dabbed a tiny bit of your solution on her neck – all I can say is I won’t be using you EVER again. Natural remedies all the way.

Dear Sarah, it was a real pleasure to meet the diva and the gentleman on Sunday and merci buckets for introducing me to my new favourite Devonish spot at Wonwell. That’s it up there ^^.

Dear blogland, I can only apologise. In spite of still having old posts to fix and a still serious missing comments issue, I did nothing, nada, zip on the blog this weekend and it was lovely to have a little break. Missed you though!

Dear whoever decided it would be so, thank you so very much for the extra day off. You’ll be pleased to know that I used my Monday wisely eating roast beef and cherry pie with my returning husband, falling a*se over breasticle in a wet field and reading interiors magazines. Quite the day.

How was your long weekend?

My little letters are of course not my brain child and were inspired by the ever inspirational Rosie.
