I was about to light the fire this morning, when my eye fell upon the Court Circular and Announcements in the Telegraph.
The passing of one worthy was marked by a very well attended service at St Mary's, Cadogan St, SW3.
Shocked as I already was to find a Jason in the Forthcoming Marriages, not to mention baffled by the waiving of the £10 visitor's fee, at the Young Chelsea Bridge Club to Bill Gates, I was further amazed to discover that the aforementioned service was attended, among the many, many other representatives of the relevant orders of knighthood, and so on, by a representative of The Sublime Society of Beef Steaks.
Only in England.
Mind you, there was another memorial service for a military man, the attendance of which presumably left the country at risk of invasion, and I was rather sad to note that those passing exceeded those arriving by a good four columns. Come along, chaps. This is just not good enough.
Oh, and in the Personal Column, Psalm 2, verses 7 and 8. Excellent.
I must now go and light the fire, but really, I should read the paper more often. As it is, I usually take it from my husband, and detach the crossword before using the rest of it for much more prosaic tasks.
