TELEGRAM!



Get any of that?

With thanks to Nelson E. Ross and his 1928 edition of ‘How to Write Telegrams Properly’. Nelson, my apologies for my frivolity and excess. I am a sender ‘guilty of economic waste’. I am some words over the fifty word basis for computation and understand (with head hung low) that I shall be charged accordingly, based on the minimum extra multiple of ten regulation.

Best of luck in all your endeavors. I might be joining you on that tropical island as soon as the mystery mutant muck sink clogger of epic proportions has been removed and quarantined for scientific research. This could take awhile...

Grace said...

Love it. stop.

Nikki said...

Economic waste? I could't have managed without knowing that the stick insects are not cannibals. Every word is precious.... and best of luck with the wrangle, Mrs.

Liesl said...

HER MAJESTY'S HOPE THAT THE BLESSINGS OF GOOD HEALTH AND PROSPERITY MAY ATTEND YOU DURING THE NEXT WEEK. STOP.

(Floordrobe? I love it. I'm going to be using that one ... in more ways than one.)

Andi said...

Pina Colada ... Don't stop!!!!

Drewzel said...

Love it! (Won't even try to write an amusing comment. Too busy reading Telegram link.)

Gina said...

I just snortled coffee through my nose! Bad woman, bad woman. About to join you in the solo-parenting, if my husband can find his passport under the floordrobe...

Stomper Girl said...

Baking croissants for French day makes you a good mum, surely? If you'd sent them to school with frog legs then maybe bad.

I would've been terrible at telegrams!

Very cute idea for a post. Good luck with all the soloing and such.

Cathy {Tinniegirl} said...

Should I send chocolate or gin?

Fer said...

Hope it all works according to some sort of plan!

Mama Mogantosh said...

Wet pants a little bit stop.

Cindy said...

Seriously are you baking croissants? If you want the bad mum moment - I ignored French day completely until child crying this morning that he had to have something. Local french bakery to the rescue with baguette and wacked some cheese in the middle - bonjour!
Hope the solo parenting is going ok and I am glad that there were no more broken stick insect bits

Trying to work through all those "stops" tired me out. Ready for a tropical island holiday myself now. Nearest I am going to get in the near future is a reality nearer to yours. Though your reality is more exotic. Croissants and piranahs vs green casserole (don't ask- named by my 6 year old) and tradesmen lol.

Tas said...

And before you ask...no, the tradesmen are nowhere near being eye candy...

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

Just love it!

Emma said...

You make me laugh! I really needed that :)

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Your energy levels are astonishing !
Croissants for French day ! Still , I suppose you refrained from making three long strings of French Onions and knitting a beret for each child ...
Or did you do that while the croissants were in the oven?
Meanwhile I need to know what a floordrobe is .

Mel said...

Good god you're good for my pelvic floor muscles! No Tena lady pads for me, it's Myrtle & Eunice all the way!

Madeline said...

Solo parenting is rough. Good luck to you!

m.e (Cathie) said...

STOP and enjoy a cup of tea and take a deep breath, we are all GOOD mums!!

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

A boring little comment but one I've been meaning to ask forever....
