So, I got this e mail. From one of the funniest bloggers on the circuit. A fellow countrywoman who never fails to surprise and delight.
Would I, said Tilly Budd, The Laughing Housewife, guest on her blog?
Erk, I thought. The one-liners fly quick and fast there, the wit is fizzy and free-flowing: how could I keep up?
And then she laid down a challenge, and I can never resist a challenge.
Tilly is well known for her passion for Maltesers, those malty sweets covered in a layer of chocolate made by Mars.
Could I, she enquired angelically, write a post linking Maltesers and Queen Victoria?

Instead of it plunging you into a slough of despond, you picked up on the Slough! Which has set me wondering about that poet:
How could the man rhyme ‘slough’ with now?
Not educated, he, enough?
Or was he not informed, somehow,
That ‘slough’ must be pronounced as ‘sluff’?
Do they call the placeSlough ‘Sl – ow-as-in-wow?
They do indeed. Or Slaah, as the Thames Valley accent would have it.
That’s the best imitation of the accent that I’ve seen in print! 😉
Nice one! I hope you’ve proven that Queen Vicky was an addict, the Laughing Housewife was aiming for that I’m sure! 😉
That could be beyond my powers, IE, without a time machine…
You rose to the challenge admirably, Kate. Hope Tilly’s going to share her stash of Maltesers with you 😉
😀 I shall be lobbying for her to make an appearance here, BB 🙂
I am eager to read about this combination.. 🙂 off to read it.
Thanks so much for doing this, Kate. It was a great success!
PLeasure, Tilly. Thank you for having me.
Fun challenge…you both amaze me! Debra
