Does anyone still do Janet and Roy?
90

WildFlowerBees · 28/10/2021 19:38

We did one once to friends who were getting married they were really very stressed about who these people were who would be attending their wedding with their small children.

Are they still going? I'd do one for someone.

Oh please can I join! I've wanted to do this for years. My mom and stepdad are caravanners and randomly meet and make friends with people on their travels so this would be amazing for them. Happy to write on from the Midlands (Birmingham).

Janet and Roy send my DBro a Cliff Richard calendar every year. He is baffled.

Grin I must go and find a calendar for my brother!

Happy to send a Janet and Roy from the Midlands.

I thought the point was that there was one letter. Which the posters on the thread constructed (so that regular Janet and Roy recipients could see how the family was getting on)? And then everyone printed and posted that? Grin

@Mummylin

Seeing Janet & Roy coming round once again reminded me, I have never told my brother and sil the truth, I was very lucky and my writer sent 3 cards the last one stating they would be arriving in their caravan with the 5 dogs, but they could just park outside their house so not to go to any trouble ! And this is from 7 yrs ago , time to fess up or leave it ?

😂😂 hilarious!

Noooo don’t confess!

We did it one year - we chose our recipient very carefully, as people we knew might know a Janet and Roy style couple and would see the funny side when it was revealed, and when DH went to a different city for work he posted it. We spent quite a lot of time constructing our letter as well, using the MN thread for inspiration. It worked an absolute treat, they were genuinely confused!

Can never really do it again, because we told everyone about our great prank!

I'll happily send one from South Wales but don't know whether to ask for one, not sure if the recipients I have in mind will get the joke.
