The coat...? What was the 'woodcut' that was on the e-bay page too?

The princess one at least had the decency to have the words 'Totally Toytastic' splashed across it.

There's a painting in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford that depicts the interior of a church during a service. It was painted in (this is from memory, so apologies if I'm wrong) the 1480s, and shows white nobility, and a number of servants, of whom one of the two nearest to the painter is black. Many ...

Nice soft kit (spoken as a true Gwen fan!), fighting the urge to tweak your green gown down at the front so's it sits right though!

This is a personal opinion: Having spoken to a lot of MOPs after big shows, particularly Tewkers and Berkeley which are just down the road from my home town the main public perception of the majority of the battle is one of boredom. Bear with me. When they start to get excited and want to stay is wh...
