News

For the Prof ( who will be getting slightly homesick )
Village News over the past week

  • Ann M...The surprise winner of the novelty vegetable class in the Flower Show is still surprisingly posting Facebook photos of her winning minion in odd situations .....it's a case of rubbing your facebook in it......
  • Affable Despots Claire and Jason have been away on holiday, so I have been feeding their goldfish for a week.........I thought their strategic placement of his " 2nd In Show" smiling shit novelty vegetable RIGHT NEXT TO THE FISHTANK was a bit rich....I made a point of stabbing it in the head with one of their kitchen knives. I'm sure his two impressionable young children found the stabbing amusing 
  • I've noted with some amusement that the minutes of the community council meetings have still not been posted on the village noticeboard since a meeting in the spring. I suspect the slightly bumbling Clerk is still catching up with amendments from the Later meetings.......for locals information the latest exciting updates can be seen on line at http://www.gwaenysgorandtrelawnyd.org.uk/community-council-minutes/
  • Auntie Gladys has been somewhat perturbed by the loss of a piece of knitting!  During the meelee of the Show , one of  Blogger Anne Marie's entries in the art section was sadly mislaid and was thought to be sold by accident. Gladys braved the bad weather to bring me down some knitting that she had found in her bric-a-brac collection . Unfortunately her eyesight is still not brilliant and what she thought was a knitted shawl turned out to be a crochet tablecloth.
  • The new couple and their sons who have recently moved into the old Police house seem very nice and very community minded. She's especially chatty!
  • The Crown pub is still shut up after the mystery moonlight flit by the last lacklustre manager .(when the flat screen tv and the slot machine takings suddenly went missing)...I wonder if anyone else has heard what's happening there ? Answers on a postcard please
  • I have finally got old Trevor connected to BT sports on line last night ( and I missed the lovely Victoria Coren-Mitchell in ONLY CONNECT doing it)..... it took me a bloody age as his computer seems to be that old it's driven by steam . He has asked me to ask the Prof if they can go shopping for a new one together......he'll buy lunch at Sainsbury's cafe no less......( you can-have what you want from the menu he says!)- go on stuff yourself
  • Mrs Trellis is fine, busy and happy with her whippet Cross Blue and I saw Gay Gordon and Big Mary outside Marks the other day! I note she's on piped oxygen now...and is I see a not so big Mary :( 
  • Oh, I've just cleaned the Church this morning...... Note to the vicar " your hoover is shite!"

Every time I clean the Church, I have the overwhelming urge to ring the bell!

  3. I get the urge to ring a bell when I'm in a church too, but I worry they may think that the Germans have invaded the village.

  9. Nice for the Prof to be kept up to date with village goings on ... and we appreciate it too :-)

    I'll say it again ... I wish I lived in a village!! We are too sparse and too far apart on our hillside, we aren't even officially a hamlet just houses on a hill, and a few dotted along the fields on the other side of the road nearer to Maenan Abbey.

  12. Ring the bell you lovely man. The kind things you do for others deserves a bell ringing now and then !

  13. Ring the bell while you can....when they finally do ring it for you, you won't be able to hear it.

  14. I feel better now that I know all the goings on in the village.

    Love,
    Janie

  15. I loved every bit of news here. Thank you! And yes, you should ring that bell. Delores is correct in what she said.

  16. Re the urge to ring the bell.
    Are you trying to give the Prof a duck fit on the other side of the world?

  17. Love the winning minion showing up at various places.
    But nothing can beat it appearing at your gate and in your car.

    cheers, parsnip

  18. What makes you think that the Prof will be getting ''slightly homesick''? He is more than likely slightly seasick - I know I would be! Ring the bell - I dare you!

  19. Go ahead and ring the bleep bell. What are they going to do to you? Kill you? Well, at least you heard the bell ...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Makes me wish I lived in such a village... but you make me feel like I live in yours. I'd probably get kicked out for ringing the bell....

  21. As you have plenty of time on your hands perhaps you should become the new landlord of "The Crown". Just like Amos in Emmerdale. But it will need a make-over, a good vacuuming with the church hoover and a name change "The Muscular Arms"? "The Rough and Ready"? "The Newmarket Inn"? Free scotch eggs for all on the re-opening night. Bingo for pensioners on Thursday nights.

  23. You can begin a new custom. when the hoovering is done, ring the bell. The village will say, There's John and finished cleaning he is.
