May Madness and My Madness

May Madness

Firstly, I will do the serious bit because Nick Miners is my friend and he did such sterling work stepping in and writing my blog with absolutely no notice at all, while I was rushed away to hospital.

He is running a promotion on his website throughout May.

You should already be familiar with his fabulous photography and work so please take some time out of your day to go and have a look.

He has blogged about it at and the Facebook announcement is at 

Nick has taught me a great deal and I consider him to be one of my mentors.  His “photographic eye” is one I envy (or is it two?).

And Now for My Madness…..

As usual the post arrived but today I received this envelope. Note, the name is spelled properly and using the correct French acute accent too.  We are already impressed.


On the reverse was the Royal Seal, which made me laugh.


The actual card was delightful.  Two puppies who were obviously drugged or stuffed.


There was a mysterious message inside…..


…… as well as an awesome (yes, I have used “that” word) gift that will be useful as well as impressive.


Well, we (the Royal We) are delighted with such a magnificent garment.  There was a label attached too so this confirms it is brand new.


I have my suspicions as to who sent this most exquisite piece of décollage or neck wear –  I am not sure if Her Maj wore it the right way round.  Is it mean to be like a bib? I don’t know.


But, who cares?  She looked, of course, as beautiful as ever.


If the company want better modelling pictures, I can do these once I am allowed to use my big camera.  Just say.


Please notice that I did brush BeAnne slightly but I didn’t want her natural beauty to detract from the lovely bandana.


And look, too, she even managed to talk to the “common people”.


I think this look is not dissimilar to Grace Kelly.  They could be twins. It is uncanny.


So, thank you, whoever you are, K!  Wonderful, simply wonderful. xx
