  3. That is awesome. You should do all the Olympickle prommotional advertising.
    I sure hope nothing goes wrong during the opening cermonies that would end up embarassing England and the Queen…

  4. Olympickles… much better. Pickles & preserves competitions at the country shows/fairs as a nanna version of Masterchef. Perfect with Cumberland Sausages. Although I’m not quite sure what a Cumberland Sausage is…

  5. I was a little afraid to open your post. You never know what kind of graphic will pop up.

  6. I’m just watching the opening ceremonies now… I can just hear everyone outside England asking, “why the f is he singing Jerusalem when it’s supposed to be about England???”

    • Dear tlsih,

      All the way through it I was wondering how the unBritish would understand half of the references made – such as the short clips from Kes, Gregory’s Girl, and loads of others I can’t remember.

      I thought the music they played while the countries were coming out was shite.

  7. Dear Dotty,

    I’m watching the opening ceremonies now and I want to eat a bullet. I wish you had organized this instead, it would have been much better. And I love your Olympickles picture.

    • Dear Mme Weebles,

      Some of it was EMBARRASSING.
      And I wish someone in the crowd had given fucking Cameron a bullet right in the forehead. (Sorry, I’m in a bad mood today. Fucking government bastards, I HATE THEM).

    Now they’re the kind of sponsors I’m talking about.

    McDonald’s an Olympic sponsor? A world competition for physical feats of great achievement. Really?

    Dear Dotty,

    You should have asked me to make some of the Olympickles – I’ve just begun to harvest Nasturtium “capers” :)

    • Dear Missus Tribble,

      I went into my garden on Friday for about 5 seconds – it’s gone wild, it’s like a jungle. My oldest rosemary bush has collapsed under the weight of itself because I haven’t trimmed it for two years. :-(

        Dear Dotty,

        Oh no! The rosemary bush can probably be saved if you hack it right back and straighten the trunk in the soil, and you can even shove a cutting or three in the ground if it really can’t be saved because at least one of those buggers will take and you’ll still have part of the original bush.

        A few years ago a little bird decided to thank me for feeding it and pooped a seed into my shrub border. I failed to notice until the resulting rosemary sprig (which is now a great bushy monster) was about four inches high! It’s underneath the kitchen window, so Mister Tribble’s rosemary by the back gate has company now.

        Love, Missus Tribble xxx

      • Dear Missus Tribble,

        I’ll ask Branwell if he’ll do it for me. I have a few more rosemary bushes I grew from cuttings from the collapsed one but I was sad to see the state of the big one.

  10. Dear Dotty,

    You are so clever! 8-)

    Love,

    I love pickled beetroot, and pickled onions, and those funny little cucumber things. But I have not tried pickled eggs as yet, nor those weird curvy green things – are they worms or snakes?
