And pigs might fly

December 16th, 2017 · No Comments · Life

I was watching the news today and they had a royal expert on there. Incidentally, that must surely be one of the most pointless jobs in the world, along with royal corresponant. Anyway, they were talking about wedding of whichever prince it is that is getting married next year – I am being vague because […]

Hurrah for the Windsor boy!

November 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on Hurrah for the Windsor boy! · Life

I must be shallow and easily bought or something because now that a date has been set for the royal wedding and a bank holiday decreed I am greatly looking forward to two 4-day weekends in a row, with a 3-day working week inbetween. Before the prospect of all  that was dangled before me I […]

Last word on the royal visit

November 8th, 2006 · 1 Comment · Life

Surprisingly, I don’t really have a problem with the Queen. If anything she deserves some sympathy for being born into an unenviable lifestyle. I don’t have any particular affection for her either. In fact I am pretty neutral on the person (lets face it, she had as much choice in the matter of her being […]

If you can’t take a joke…

November 8th, 2006 · Comments Off on If you can’t take a joke… · Life

Both our local papers are full of righteous indignation over the comments made about Crawley on Have I Got News For You last week, but treating Prince Philips’s digs about everyone in the town being fat as if it was the legendary funniest joke in the world. To make it worse, it turns out that […]

Prince Philip does it again

November 3rd, 2006 · 6 Comments · Life

The Queen descended on Crawley today (literally – she arrived by helicopter). Not only did she narrowly miss getting told where to go by our car park signs but she also avoided this sight – someone replaced the missing O a while ago. During the visit the royal party went into the County Mall to […]

Have I Got News for Crawley

November 3rd, 2006 · Comments Off on Have I Got News for Crawley · Life

I see that everyone was taking the piss out of Crawley on HIGNFY tonight. I had not realised that the story of our car park signs being hacked had reached national newspapers. Apparently it was American hackers who were responsible for getting into the council’s car park computer and altering the message on the boards […]

Royal visit update

November 2nd, 2006 · 1 Comment · Life

I noticed this story on the BBC website earlier. (Honest. I really did see it hours before Richard’s comment, I justgot distracted) It seems the Queen is having back trouble and has had to cancel several engagements. At the moment she is still coming to Crawley but will cut the visit short and leave before […]

Royal visit

November 1st, 2006 · 13 Comments · Life

Only three days to go until the Queen pays a visit to Crawley, and the sense of apathy in the Skudder household is almost overwhelming. Chrystal might be looking forward to it a bit as Liz will be visiting her school but Jayne and I are not particularly big fans of the monarchy as an […]
