Wednesday Night

Children in bed, Simpsons on the TV and the laptop left on for me :-)

Ah, I must be babysitting at the Aginoths! so a pause from the photo album tonight, as my files are at home.

But some news. I have been helped to a decision. Yup, the Queen has made a decision - been a long time since I've done that!

As previously mentioned on this blog and Mrs A's, I recently went to Berkeley Castle for the Joust and spent some time with the Aginoths in the 14C. Coming away, I was yet again struck by the thought that the opportunity to leave the 21C behind was maybe too good to miss.

So, subject to the agreement of the Company of Chivalry, I am debating joining the group for a weekend at the end of August to see how I fit in. Did they *have* single peasant women in 1370? Somehow I can't see MB leaving his engines and golf at home to don hose and braes and wield a sword.

I can't sew, I can't knit, I can't weave, I can't fight (haven't drawn a bow since I was about ten!). I did get a chorus of 'You can sing, though!' - BUMMER........ hard to argue as five minutes earlier I had been walking through the house singing 'Are you going to Scarborough Fair?'.......

More later - tea time :-)

I think you'll love it- yes they had single peasant women then- they were called spinsters (tee-hee) or you could be the wise woman and dish out home made remedies.....how about some nettle cream for unsightly spots!!!! Or maybe some camomile ointment for sore elbows...what about home made plasters- you'd be a whizz at those!!!

I think you're eminently capable of rewriting history. I wish I could be there to watch. How exciting that will be!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I hope you take pictures, my dear...Would love to see you in those costumes...

Is everything okay, dear CQ? I haven't seen you in a very l-o-n-g time....not since before you went to Scotland...I hope I haven't offended you in any way, my dear...If I have...I hope you would tell me...I send hugs to you.
