Oranges and lemons



Oranges and lemons, Say the bells of St. Clement's

You owe me five farthings, Say the bells of St. Martin's

When will you pay me? Say the bells of Old Bailey.

When I grow rich, Say the bells of Shoreditch.

When will that be? Say the bells of Stepney

I do not know, Says the great bell of Bow

Here comes a candle to light you to bed And here comes a chopper to chop off your head

The bride suggested orange gerbera, I said NO. Is this wrong?

Depends how you said No! Tone, Delivery, Intention etc etc, once she'd recieved your bouquet I'm sure she was seriously delighted you said NO! it's gorgeous.

Hi Jane

Sounds like you are much more tactful than me. There are somethings I just won't do, red and white is another. A raise of the eyebrows tends to be enough.
Have a good week

I've just spoken to a lovely lady at David Austin Roses, they're coming up to see us on Thursday re being an acredited supplier so they can refer wedding enquiries etc I hope you don't mind but I gave them your information and said you would be perfect for their brand/project

My Dear Miss Pickering

In M&S on Saturday,
Whilst admiring the Marguerite display,
From behind came a mutter,
A tut and a splutter,
A young man in total dismay ....

I turned round and gazed in his eyes,
Oh my what a pleasant surprise,
Tall, dark and handsome,
Stacked(!) like a king's ransom,
He so was a sight for sore eyes ...

Needless to say, I directed said TDH to your Floral Emporium where I trust you were able to satisfy his every requirement.

No thanks required. The pleasure was, indeed, all mine.

Fondest regards,
Miss Duddington
