I am technically a dowager, though my son Rufus, the fourth earl, is not yet married. I love the country, it's very peaceful here. I am surrounded by photographs of my past. On the piano I have a photograph of myself dancing with David, the Prince of Wales - later of course Edward the Eighth and subsequent Duke of Windsor.

Imagine my embarassment on Saturday 13th when Horatio and I returned from Africa to see the village full of homeless people.

After a few hasty phone calls to the local constabulary we realised it was a scarecrow festival.I wondered why the neighbours were looking at Horatio strangely when he ran one of the buggers through with his cavalry sword.

And hugely so to you all, today I witnessed an act of anarcho dandyism whilst excercising the ocelot, a magnificent display of brolly jousting.

I thought Arthur Smeg was thrashing around in the bushes trying to free himself when I saw he was actually beating a homeless drunk with his brolly.

Good show Arthur, keep those types in Dinnington and Maltby where they tend to blend a little easier with the track suited locals.
