postcard #1...

i have now recovered from having my bits poked around by security and then spending hours waiting on the tarmac at Heathrow...YES!! i am on british soil.

my first port of call was the pub (i 'swam' around a bit and found a likely looking one)...after several beers i was starting to feel lucky, after all who could resist a pesky gnome.


as i looked around for a bit of action, two things were quite noticeable, first no one actually seemed to be in the pub, they were all outside having a 'smoke' (due to the clean air rules) and secondly lady gnomes are very thin on the ground...i have now set myself a mission of finding myself a 'sweet young british lassy' gnome to have a summer fling with...

hoping he gets lucky soon ~ a pesky gnome

You arrived just in time for smoke free pubs! I am living the new laws: I canfinally knit in pubs without my wool stinking.

to pesky gnome, if you get lonely, we have 3 gnomes living in a tree in out back garden (don't ask, they were there when we moved in!), no ladies i'm afraid, just a bunch of blokes : )

Good lucky Pesky Knome, I have heard there are some very 'hot' lady knomes in the British countryside who may not be averse to a bit of pesking!

Pesky Gnome, it was a delight to meet you the other day and I am now aware that you are a gnome of other hidden talents!! I cannot wait to hear more of your travels as you definitely look like trouble to me. Enjoy your visit!

I am Jen said...

Did you put somewhere where you got that gnome? I love it and the fact it sits in a pub next to a beer! What a long voyage you had. Hopefully jetlag does not ruin your weekend. bring back some vintage textiles will ya?
