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.

Lady Bracknell would be extremely grateful if persons who intend to drag two wheelie bins behind them through their gates and up their drive would have the goodness to clothe themselves in colours which are distinguishable from those of their drive and their garden walls.

It is not good for a person of Lady Bracknell's advanced years and multiple infirmities to be subjected to shocks when she is patiently awaiting the arrival of the omnibus.

May one enquire as to whether when one is waitng for the omnibus, whether ones epidermis feels itchy? Does one see pink pachyderms at all?

I'll put my red coat on instead of the dove grey one... but I'm not going out at all to the bins tonight because it's too wet, too windy, and the bins keep blowing over.

Dr Hackenbush,

Lady Bracknell abstains from strong drink, and is thus blessedly free from some of its more worrying side-effects.

Which is why she was so very concerned to witness two wheelie bins apparently propelling themselves up a shallow incline.

Ms Diddums is clearly a personage of considerable good sense.

In wet and windy weather, one should avoid leaving the house on errands of such minor significance.

Perhaps it was a Police stake-out.

Did the bushes appear to be carrying guns or eating doughnuts?
