It is a little known fact that her legs were amputated just above the knee, at the age of 17 due to a particularly bad case of rickets and replaced with ivory replicas carved by Henry Moore (who she trained in the art of sculpture) from material taken from the tusks of a surviving herd of Woolly Mammoths that she owns to this day and has hidden away on a remote northern island…

I was out walking early this morning and at a house in a the next village to mine I noticed a skip full of rubble with a couple of pallets and some plywood leaning against it. These bits were just what I needed to finish off fixing my elderly neighbours shed. I knocked on the door and asked if I could take them, though I would have to bring a jigsaw to cut the plywood to fit in my car. The bloke said “don’t worry I will deliver it” - He came to my house later in his WV transporter to deliver the wood plus some extra bits he thought might be useful. - What a star. Worryingly he had BMW M series car.
I’m going to let them out at junctions from now on!!
