Joanna Lumley, Piers Morgan and a list of things to do before I die
THE weather has turned miserable but we’re refusing to believe summer is over here at Silk.
We still have lots of fantastic events to attend and a little rain won’t dampen our spirits.
This Bank Holiday weekend is jam-packed with fun events for the whole family and we can’t wait to be part of them.
Why don’t you head to the Poynton Show this Saturday and see the Patanavac Gundogs and Ferret display or perhaps Big Pete and the Grim Reaper Monster Truck is more up your street?
Whichever it is, make sure you’re also heading over to the Silk tent to have a chat with Cheshire the Cat and Silk Team – we’d love to see you!
Triplefest is also back this weekend featuring TV comedians and artists and the infamous Welly Fest. Join us this Monday for their family fun day with animals, motors, demonstrations and arena entertainment – we know it’s set to be a great day! DO you have a Bucket List i.e. things you want to do before you die?
I think everyone should have one. You don’t want to be gasping your last and suddenly remember that canoe trip up the Orinoco.
If you’re struggling to compile a Bucket List here’s mine. It might point you in the right direction.
1. Take part in the Iditarod sled dog race. (I’ve always fancied a bit of mushing.) 2. Write a novel. 3. Have a long weekend with Joanna Lumley.
4. Have longer weekend with Joanna Lumley.
5. Drive a herd of cows across Wyoming on horseback.
6. Save someone from certain death (not Piers Morgan).
7. Drive a herd of cows across Wyoming with Joanna Lumley.
8. Win Crufts with my unfaithful Labrador Murphy.
9. Make Victoria Beckham smile (probably by not saving Piers Morgan.)
10. Watch England’s soccer team win the World Cup.
I have a decent chance of achieving numbers one, five and nine. Murphy is a bit old for eight and I’m really struggling with seven (Joanna is nervous around cows).
I know number 10 is a pipe dream but you have to think big. If push comes to shove I’ll run on and score a couple myself.
I’ve got a real dilemma with number six. I’ve never done anything you could regard as brave (except deflating my French teacher’s bike tyres) so I’d really like to do something heroic.
But you can’t choose who you rescue. Nonswimmers aren’t exactly lining up to throw themselves into the canal for me to save.
Maybe I could save Joanna Lumley and tie number six up with three and four but suppose... just suppose it is Piers Morgan drowning in the canal.
Where do you find an alligator when you need one?
