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.

The weather continues charming.

News has reached Bracknell Towers that the Editor's mother - who has been spring-cleaning what she insists on referring to as the Editor's bedroom, despite the fact that it has been many years since the Editor was capable of ascending the staircase which leads up to it - has unearthed a five-year diary which the Editor maintained religiously in her late teens.

Said volume having been promised to the Editor when next she and her mother meet, Lady Bracknell suspects it may provide some hilarious angst-ridden content for later blog entries.

Apparently, Mr Larkin has a couple of days free after Easter, during the course of which he could very well find himself coincidentally driving past the Editor's parents' house, whereupon - he says - it would be but the work of a moment to drop in and pick up the diary on the Editor's behalf.

Quite why the Editor should have responded to this kind - and clearly genuine - offer of assistance with shrieks of outrage, Lady Bracknell is at a loss to explain.

Angst would be the least of the Editor's problems, should a certain gentleman get his mitts on her private diary!

By the way, I too am a huge fan of Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and the rest of Nick Park's work. Can one purchase the yellow beribboned "I'm a Fan" sticker that Lady Bracknell shows at the top left of her blog?
Be lovely if I could!

Then again, the Editor's problems might fade quite speedily into insignificance in comparison with those suddenly befalling the gentleman in question...

Do let us know what happens to the Editor, her Diary and the Unfortunate Gentleman...
Can't wait to hear about them!

It would appear that the sticker is not for sale. One can download it to one's own website from here, though.

Purchases of Shaun-related items (not including a sticker) can be made from here.

Many thanks for the links. I fancy the walking model of Shaun and will let you know if I purchase same. It appears I shall have to create a website which I can then adorn with the beribboned sticker - or I could just keep logging on to Lady B's site to see it.
I always read her comments with enjoyment anyway - having the same utter want of tact!

Poor Mr Larkin - I cannot imagine why Lady B's Editor should be so distrustful of this kindly gentleman's offer. I would have thought she would have simply double-checked that he has the right address.
