How I am looking forward to this forthcoming season. It all seems to be happening. People winning competitions and even a member who is now a television star. All this excitement makes me feel like continuing this blog in both my native languages. English and Cockney Rhyming Slang. See if you can.translate what I am saying.
Well me old china plates, I is looking forward for the start of the new season at the Carey Baptist Church Hall in September. Those who are coming on the heavy load, or if you prefer, frog and toad, by your jam jar, here is some advice. Please do not forget to put your candle wax on your burnt cinder. Ladies usually turn up looking nice. So gentlemen, please turn up looking reasonable. You do not have to wear a whistle and flute. Turn up casual like I do. Please ensure that your dickie dirt and round me houses are clean though. Particularly if we have a guest speaker. He or she doesn't want to rabbit and york through their north and south and toodle pips if we are scruffy and uncouth. Particularly if he/she is posher than us lot and rabbits proper not like we does. That will make him/her want to grind their Hampstead Heath.
Or maybe our mince pies will be subjected to some good pictures. Together with good sound tracks our King Lears should be happy.
Then comes the big moment when we have to make an important decision. Who wants to sample coffee and who wants to sample Rosie Lea? Whatever is chosen, please don't take all the fig biscuits, because I like them.
Don't forget that at the end of the meeting to put the Cain and Abels and chairs away. If someone was bored and is having a Bo Peep on a their chair, don't stand any nonsense from them. Kick them off with your plates of meat. However, be careful if your plates of meat are encased in a pair of daisy roots. You might end up getting a bunch of fives up your rubber hose.
All in all, it should be good fun.
