What have you done that Jilly Cooper would be proud of?

Whilst panic shaving my legs in preparation for this sudden sunshine I used a shite old razor and gave myself hideous razer burn and ingrown spots. So today, as they were visible even under natural tights, I smothered my legs in foundation first and felt exactly like a Jilly heroine. Maybe even Janey herself.

Anyone else?

I drank some brandy out of a teacup yesterday.

I came out with a terrible pun the other day grin.

Please see username..... grin

What was the pun?

ScreamingValenta Thu 19-Apr-18 21:08:14

It's embarrassingly lame - I burnt some stir fry veg in the wok, and said to DH 'I made a bit of a wok up' blush

I had sex in a bunker (golf course)

I'm waiting for someone to come on the thread and say they've played nude tennis grin.

Still, not long till the 1st of May wink

Sex in the changing rooms of army and navy in Bath. And on a reservoir in Berks! I think Jilly would approve 😁

Congratulated DH on a successful erection after he'd put the washing line up

Bonked al fresco like Janey and Billy. halo

Rather than washing my hair this morning, I drenched it in scent...sadly not Fracas though.

Bonnie7 Thu 19-Apr-18 21:42:16

Love this thread!
Would love to say DH poured a glass of champers over my bush and licked it off... but I’d be lying.

Sex in a stable.

The horses was NOT impressed.

Sex in a swimming pool in a friends house in SA, they were out of course. Not sure about the neighbours though.

crimsonlake Thu 19-Apr-18 21:53:16

Oh and something involving a flake, nothing to do with the pool episode.

Am overweight, have no dress sense, and get embarrassed and blush (although possibly not adorably) frequently, yet still managed to find a bloke to marry me. That’s, like, at least 50% of her female characters. Not the heroines, obvs; I’d have to be gorgeous and impossibly young yet impossibly sexy and difficult to be one of them.

Lost my virginity to someone called Seb!

And I've had sex in a stable

tenbob Thu 19-Apr-18 22:01:48

And the dog sleeps on my bed

I'm sure Jilly sleeps with her dogs in her bed

theredjellybean Thu 19-Apr-18 22:04:57

My dds have names straight from her books... And we still use their child hood nicknames despite them being adults... And I have ridden hard to hounds and snogged the master of the hunt in a copse

FenellaMaxwellsPony Thu 19-Apr-18 22:06:21

That is a good point - I have also had sex in a stable, and the dog is snoring next to me in bed right now....

Thurlow Thu 19-Apr-18 22:51:51

These are brilliant!

HildaZelda Thu 19-Apr-18 22:58:00

I haven't actually had sex in a stable, but I DID shag a jockey.
I'm sure Jilly would have been very proud grin
Great thread OP.

Dated someone called Rupert whose family owned a bank. Left him for a broke Australian called Bruce!
