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.

Morning ablutions #2

These photographs were taken with the Editor's mobile telephone, there having been insufficient time for her to fetch her camera.

That fact, combined with the furious speed with which Caspar was washing Bertie's ears, has resulted in these pictures not being of great quality.

Nevertheless, Lady Bracknell considers the series of photographs to have a certain charm.

By the looks of it, Caspar has the same view of small boys' ablutions as my late mother: concentrate on the neck and ears!

...and further to Mr. Dawson's observations, I would add that in the tradition of all great mothers, Caspar's own saliva serves as the cleaning agent (though in this case said agent is delivered directly, and not via the corner of an assiduously pre-soaked handkerchief).

Far be it from me, however, to sully the proceedings with unsavory references to oral fluids. I will only note, therefore, that my own cats engage in similarly charming grooming behaviours. The cat who is normally on the receiving end of her sister's rather firm ablutive attentions does not put up with it for long, however, or enjoy it as much as Master Bertram obviously does. I wish I had pictures. But I don't. Therefore I shall point you toward the following, Ma'am. They may look a bit scruffy, but they are cosy.

Is there anything more soothing first thing in the morning than a picture of snuggling kitties?

Lady Bracknell is most grateful to Jess for providing same.

Camera phones have an extreme advantage where capturing moments of spontoneity are concerned. Always to hand, no fiddly gadgetry, zooms, settings etc. And there is much to be said for the hastily grabbed snapshot. It's a joy to share. Meanwhile, I have taken to my bed with Ralph.
