EEEEEEVERYTING becomes authentic for ANY period if you wrap it in hessian and smear it with mud.


Was just about to say that. damn, damn, damn.

Oh well - if they'd have had it they'd have used it.
I may well put up the costume I made for my theatre studies exam years ago, just for a laugh (late 17th C. - brown velvet and yellow brocade - made from curtains from a charity shop - as historical costume is dreadful, but got me an A so did it's job (has a zip!!!!!).

Now if I can only find somebody who'll fit into it...

Well, today I mugged a pensioner for a contribution to the Women's Refuge -yes really. I admit that it did take all afternoon negotiating ( donation to look at the picture or a donation to not have to look at the picture), charming, whining, whinging, getting downright threatening about nursing care selection. Eventually I got it. I may have had to pretend to drive away after he locked himself in the toilet, leaving the children behind in hiding to jump out on him and wrestle him to the ground for it, but eventually I got it.

That'll teach him for stopping my pocket money when I reached 18.

£90 collected, £20 + pledged and awaiting collection - phases 2 and three in planning and operation by other kind volunteers.

How can YOU help women and children escaping domestic abuse? Make a small donation! PM Alice for payment methods.

Oh no. It can't be hessian. I was told hessian was invented until the C17th.
That's not a conker tree you see before you, don't care if you are kicking the conkers around, They don't come to England until the C17th. And you see the Cedar lawn where you ate your sandwiches? You are hallucinating. It doesn't exist yet. Come to that, niether do the sanwiches.
And you thought it was Sunday. It can't be Sunday because we are all working. If it was Sunday we would all be in church. Its Tuesday, so there.

Ha ha. Now who's mad then? :twisted:

I believe it is spelt Hefyanne. Substitution of any 'f' for any number of 's'es, 'y' for any 'i' and the addition of an extra 'e' or 'ne' at the end of any word immediately makes the concept portrayed by that word authentic.

Y knowe thif for facte.

If only this concept worked for convincing professors of the validity of "tudor and elisabethan middle class dress" as a research project ::sighs::

well it was worth a try!!!

Well what do you expect from filthy Tudors?

Do it in eyewateringly small black curly letters throughout the whole document and then in big red curly letters at the bottom put 'or Big Alice is coming to see you'.

This will sort out all your problems and result in AAA* and a new look of fear (tinged with respect) in your tutor's eye. That and probably a lot of cowering against the opposite wall of the corridor as you pass.

That sounds so familiar (never done Kentwell, but know several Kentwellies.

You forgot the one about how that's not a aeroplane, aeroplanes don't exist yet, but we're not going to run and screama nd call it a demon, like they would have at the time, cos it's invisible (well duh - of course the big noisy metal thing is invisible!!!!)

Debs

PS - I'd go with Alice - scaring professors and lecturers is the only way forward!!!

Mind you, they've never seen a British Housewife in full swing. I frightened a whole camp of french re-enactors with a ladle and a statement of fact once. :mrgreen:


Thank you Penny for your donation! £95 collected in hand for the Warwickshire Women's Refuge and £20 to come in.

Plus the Pedlar Woman's Tudor coughings-up. Spoke to the Chair of the Refuge Committee and she is very, very grateful for everyone's generosity.

Well i'm just going to have to do my post-grad work in England then! I'm certain i can find a school with a Public History department or a good Archeology department... besides, the curry over here is horrible and the beer is worse.

Thank you to everyone who has donated here, thank you to the Kentwell lot - your donations posted off today - and thank you to the late player who was so impressed she doubled her pledge.

Every little helps! If you had a sneaky peaky send a tiny cheque - even £1 cheques are welcome (but not as welcome as BIG cheques)

And thank you Tuppence - in the stages of plotting AIPON the fundraiser - the next era

Thank you Lord Roos, King of the (Pin) Dance, evictor of Grannies and all round Fop and Nob.

Mrs Helen has emailed me about your donation and I have asked her to send it direct.

And to all of you who have dipped and doshed:

"Hi Alice & co , Your haloes must be dazzling! Thank you for the gifts of
money.

On behalf of the committee and especially me (not
good english!!) please convey our gratitude and thanks
to your very kind and generous friends for your support and
encouragement for us. "

The money we have raised here has been put with money raised through the Husbynd to redecorate and re-organise the Refuge to give more suitable accommodation and to move the office closer to the front door for better security. He and a group of friends have also gone in and painted at speed to cut down on costs of the refurbishment and to save loss of money during the period when the Refuge can only take on a few clients.

The fact that men have been involved in raising money both here on the forum and locally sends a very important message to women who have been mindwashed to believe that they are of no value by the men who claim to love them. Thank you all again and again!

Thank you also to Annie the Pedlar who fleeced Kentwellies
Thank you to Tuppence who is planning phase 4

Donations are still very gratefully received!

Alas, the frock has slipped down the rating, but is only 4.14 on 35 voters beind the leading 4.18 from 90 voters - well done you wicked children, you.

Hey! What!?! He hasn't told me!
Is there a little Greglet on the scene?
When? How? I don't mean that - I know how- I mean did it go OK? Quick and easy like shelling peas? Weight? Boy? Girl? Does he/she look like you?


Us nosey old biddys must keep up with the gossip, you know.

Joyful congratulations to you all.
The fun has just begun.
Its all worth it. Kids are wonderful.

Sorry, I got so excited, I started gabbling. I was actually talking to (a virtual) Jorge.
The last time we 'talked' he was (metaphorically) pacing up and down, expectantly.
