SHREDDIES BOY AND CREAM-FACED LOON
Go-kart action, junior style - and a bit of flower fashion
S A T U R D A Y, 6 M A Y
Mummy drove Chump and me to Anya and Anna-Marie's house.
Lunch there was lovely. We had lamb, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, cold milk to drink, and an almond Danish thing with chocolate, cherries and walnuts on top, with tinned pineapple rings on the side and a sauce of cream, egg and sherry. Yummy!
Mr G is so funny, so is Mrs. They're terribly nice.
Then we started on our Polnareff rag doll, found some pink material for the body, and cut out a paper pattern.
Later we all went to the go-kart track at the end of the field. We watched from a grassy bank behind the posts - what a racket! There were eight go-karts on the track at any one time. One was this gruesome show-off in a black suit with a red stripe all down it - we called him the Devil. Others we called Lily-livered Twit and Cream-faced Loon (Shakespeare!). Another was Mousey, another was Weed, another went so fast he was Shreddies Boy. Then along came one all in white, a newcomer - Whitey! We shouted out "hooray" every time our favourite went by (the one in Dutronc-like corduroy trousers). Whitey grinned at us once! It was so hilarious because another chap went through a puddle and rolled over steaming - we died of laughter and couldn't stop.
Saw The Monkees, and had 'high tea' in the kitchen. A plateful of ham, lettuce, cress, chives, tomatoes, a scallop full of mayonnaise with diced bananas, nuts, oranges and apples, then bread and cheese, then grapefruit in a bowl, then florentines.
Then Anya and me had the most fab time in her room. We had the little light on so it was dark and clubby, I spoke French, she spoke English with a Polnareff accent. We danced to French radio and Polnareff came on with 'Le Pauv' Guitarist'.
