A busy day

Yesterday was a momentous day at the Grace and Favour apartment. News arrived from our antipodean outposts of the arrival of a friend's baby, Lady P-G and I had a little something to celebrate ourselves and, most importantly, it was the first day at school for the eldest master Pedant-General.



Here he is, looking extremely smart.

I expect that, before long, the little chap will be required to account for his time during the long summer break (on which topic, more later).

Indeed, he may even be asked to suggest what he might do if he finds, unexpectedly, that he is charge of the country. Oddly enough, your just - yet merciful - Pedant-General finds himself in almost exactly the same position.

Although I will admit that my appointment to the Cabinet of a would-be Dictator has come as something of a surprise, my getting a post of this sort and in this manner is not exactly without precedent....

I would appear to be in really extremely good company.

The precise brief within the Home Office remains vague, which I suppose presents opportunities in itself. I shall keep you posted so that you may all adjust your behaviour to stay on my side of the law....

P-G,

I have selected the bloggers who I think have most developed their particular passions (and who I read, obviously); I thought that the Home Office would suit you down to the ground...

Thus, you have carte blanche. Max. three policies by this coming Monday. Soon, with this ring [of bloggers] I could, dare I say it, rule... the world!

I can remember when a certain PG looked much like that - I must go and see if I can find the photo and scan it in...

Mr Seat might wish to reflect (no pun intended) on the remarkably greenhouse-like quality of Seat Towers before he starts throwing around stones of that size and with that vigour....

[Makes mental note: Mr Seat to be first up against the wall for his ID card photo when the revolution comes]

Well, I imagine that many of us looked like that at one stage. I know I did.

Before soeone nailed those damn flowers to my chest...
