Extra post: An Away Match with a HIlarious Housewife

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.
