Bishop who ?
Posted by Big John on November 24, 2010
It’s nearly time for my annual Christmas greeting, but this year the excitment of the festive season pales into insignificance at the thought of … Oh joy ! … Royal nuptials in the spring !
Yes, ‘Whirlybird Willy’ the dashing helicoptor pilot is to wed Catherine the not so ‘Great’ in April. I wonder if it’s too early to start camping on the pavement (sidewalk) outside Westminster Abbey ?
So no Christmas lights and twinkling decorations for me this year, for the house will be decked with red, white and blue bunting, flags left over from the World Cup, a bloody great portrait of the happy pair outside ‘Mahiki’ and pictures of ‘er Maj, the Saxe-Coberg-Gotha clan and all their current ‘partners’.
I’ve already sent off my orders for all those so tasteful (made in China) souvenir mugs, T shirts, toilet roll holders etc. and I’m buying ‘she who must be obeyed’ a lovely limited edition statuette from a Sunday supplement of the ‘angel Diana’ looking down on the bride, groom and ‘ginger spare’ best man.
Now all I have to do, like so many old farts, is to save up to buy a wedding present for the lucky couple. I know, I’ll spend some of my ‘winter fuel allowance’ on something to help them set up home, for as we all know it’s tough starting married life in these hard times.
I wonder if Harrods will accept a postal order ?
