I shall partake of the mandrake potion for I have killeth the silken thread and my shame is mine and mine alone. To the highest turret my weak and feeble body I will carry.

Anon, anon cruel world.....

I fear I hath encountered a wyche! She is from ye Northern provynces and goes by the moniker of Madame McKeith. She asked that I do a motion in her devil's beaker rather than in ye midden so that she could "pokke it wyth a styck" Alas she seems to hath met wyth misfortune as my Lord found her buryed in ye midden when he hath gone for a post-prandial shytte! It was notte to do with me!

Alack, alack and alas. I liveth. Thou partook of the white wine draught whilst denying the mandrake potion and thine dearest and most potent wish to swoop to my end was thwarted when I fell over pissed on the the highest turret of Semi-detached castle and landed on the knot garden and squasheth the under maid.

Sorry Eliza - you twere but a sweet maid (sluttish after a few yards of mead I heard, but I counseled caution to those rumours and had them beheaded)

Verilye, Mistress of ye Perversiounes, am I cross-ey'd, tis a curse from the Lorde for frolickinge on ye sabbath with ye raven-hairede priestlinge. Tis, in my opinioune moste humble, moste worthe it, egad.

Toiletinge of ye chylder.

O wise mumsnetteres, what saye ye?
Mine own sonne is butte two sommeres ande 6 moon cycles old and for thys paste 4 blessed turnyings of ye sun, I have implored ye chyld to taketh leave of ye olde nappye and taketh relief of ye pottye insteade. Alas, mine sonne continues to pisseth and befoul the floores of thys fyne hovel ande doth refuse to weareth bigge boyye undergarmentes.

Shouldst I continue in mine queste to ridde ye chylde of the devils own stynkbombe and learne him the wayes of propere toiletinge?
