The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

A further delay

Lady Bracknell regrets to report that, shortly after her return to Bracknell Towers, the editor was apprised of a sudden and wholly unexpected family bereavement.

That being the case, she is in behopes that such of her readers as have been avidly anticipating a detailed report of e.g. the editor's conversation with Prince Charles on Friday last will feel able to contain their impatience until such time as the initial shock of the loss has worn off.

Lady Bracknell's readers are thanked for their understanding in this matter.

Normal service will resume as soon as possible.

How very sad for the editor & Lady Bracknell, and I do hope this does not sour the memory of the richly deserved award.

Although I will greatly miss any absence, I do hope Lady Bracknell will put her feelings and personal needs before this (much appreciated) blog, and that the days to come are copable.

Thank you. It was a very nasty shock, as I suppose such things invariably are.

My cousin was 35. We believe his death was probably the result of poor control of his blood sugars. He had been Type I diabetic from a very young age, and was notorious for managing his sugars erratically.

If you have family members or friends with diabetes (particularly if they are insulin dependent), please remember that diabetes can be very quickly fatal, and keep a close eye on your loved ones.

Gavin's funeral is in Scotland next Tuesday. Regrettably, it is too far for me to travel. But my parents travel up Monday, and will be staying as long as their help is needed.

Please pass my sincere condolences to the Editrix.

Caspar will need to provide extra feline comfort in the coming weeks.
