I'm a Lady

We were sorry, we missed "The ladies Charity Night" ( the biggest thing to hit the village since the onset of talking pictures) which took place on Saturday, but by all accounts the night was a resounding success for Claire and Jason Randa, who organised the evening. I have been told that a few of the village ladies were reported to have suffered from  very sore heads on Sunday morning and that ribald shrieks and laughter was heard as far away as Marian Garage at the height of the evening's festivities!
It doesn't surprise me....
whoever said that the Welsh idea of fun was to wear a striped shroud, didn't know the women of Trelawnyd
When I was told of the event, I did complain to Jason that a "ladies only" night was a little discriminatory in this age of the god awful Loose Women   and another such "bash the male" type programmes...and he kindly relented to let us support the do on the night.....I am only sorry that I was a little under par on Saturday, and could only muster a vague interest in  Harry Judd's pneumatic buttocks in Strictly Come Dancing from my position in the arm chair- the thought of socialising with the village hierarchy was all a little too much for me

Fair do's to Jason and Claire though, a phenomenally brilliant 3000£ was raised by their event....money that will, I am sure, be used productively at the local Cancer Centre in Glan Clwyd Hospital.
Well done them!

  1. Was this a diplomatic illness? The thought of attending a 'ladies night' would terrify me!

  2. Aren't 'we' all just a tad ladylike? I mean it's in our genes. Thing is don't hold back.

  3. I would think twice about attending a 'Ladies Night' - very scary.

    What a huge amount of money they raised. Well done Jason and Claire, they must have really worked their socks off getting to that total!

  6. Of all the things I've ever been accused of being, it's never been a 'lady'.

    But if there was drinking and cackling involved, I think I'd manage to fit in anyway!

  7. Ladies night? Never been to one. But I did once meet a lady of the night. She told me I could do sex with her for £20. I pointed out that £20 was enough for a fish and chip supper and a few pints, after which I would be too full for doing sex to her or anyone, and in the morning my bollocks wouldn't have rotted off.

    We didn't stay in touch!

  9. Ladies only? Not a problem for a female impersonator like me LOL

    "Oh yes it's ladies night
    And the feeling's right
    Oh yes it's ladies night
    Oh what a night (oh what a night)"...

  13. Just came over for a catch up after laptop was poorly.
    I was sad to read about Andrew's death, I did have a little cry when you talked about how you tended to his hair and shave. It must have been tricky with your eyes full of mist.

  14. You certainly see life in your village John. I was glad Jason got through in Strictly - it would have been so unfair for it to be Robbie at this stage in the competition. Love

  17. For Chris to answer your questions, John, he would have to give away two prime security checks to all those hackers out there. So - I'll do it for him:

    Fi-Fi Le Bastardos.

  20. John, take time out to sleep. Right now. You need it. I can tell all the way over here in very dreary Illinois. Grab your favorite mutt and go.

  23. Now I thought your drag name was the name of your first pet and the road where you first lived. I've been going under the name Butch Elmcroft for years.

  24. Hi

    we raised £3032.65 ! amazing night, all the ladies were served by gentlemen in tuxedos....had their drinks brought to them at the table...had their food brought to them....danced with them....got them drunk basically !! also had a lady doing rather enegetic zumba after the raffle, she was on stage and had about 100 women jiggling their bits all over the place.....it was an amazing event and as my wife is a patient at the centre, she feels like she has given something back to the centre.

  28. glad to hear things went so well! £3000 +!

    John, after the week you've had, you need rest; others can be raucous and in time, you'll join in most heartily, i'm sure.
