Break­ing news

Country Life Every Week - - Marriage Counselling -

How do I break it to my grand­mother that I’m get­ting mar­ried to an­other man? You’re a chap, I take it? Oh, for Pete’s sake— don’t pa­tro­n­ise her be­cause she’s crum­bling. Think what the old bird has lived through: Stephens Ten­nant, Spender and Fry; Ge­orges Michael, Boy and Gil­bert-&-; the fab­u­lous Bunny Rogers, who, when asked how his war went, replied: ‘My dear! The noise, the smell! The peo­ple!’ The Queen wrote con­do­lences to Peter Pears af­ter Ben­jamin Brit­ten died, oh, way back. Your grand­mother won’t need any­thing bro­ken to her—she’ll prob­a­bly think ‘How drea­rily con­ven­tional’.
