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.

In which the entrance to Bracknell Towers is obstructed

Lady Bracknell's readers will, she imagines, be unsurprised to learn that the water supply to Bracknell Towers has been turned off today, and will be again tomorrow.

How fortunate it is for her ladyship, then, that she is of sufficient agility and general vim not only to leap into the shower first thing in the morning, but also thereafter to skip nimbly and safely away from oncoming traffic when use of the pavement is denied to her.

I note from your photograph that the legendary Scouse workman is going at his customary pace in order to effect repairs in the shortest possible time, thereby minimising disruption to the elderly and infirm.

I mentioned the upheaval to a friend of mine at the local constabulary, who informed me that the hole outside Bracknell Towers has come to Police attention and they are presently looking into it. The principal reason for their interest is that a similar hole has appeared outside Police HQ and cut off all water to the lavatories. The investigation continues but, for the time being, detectives have nothing to go on!

Lady Bracknell suspects she may have cracked a rib as the result of her immoderate mirth.

What is even more galling is that, not content with having rendered the pavement on one side of the street impassable, the employees of the water board have blocked the pavement on the other side of the street with their parked cars.

I've known Laby Bracknell for very many years and I have yet to see her leap. I am therfore pleased to read that she has been leaping this week.

On the same day the hole appeared outside Police HQ, two urinals were stolen from the constabulary's lavatory block. A police spokesman said "We think this burglar is taking the p*ss".
