Ha! I don't think so. I have a firm control over what little hormonal urges I have at this age :lol:

Ahh...that'd be this Matt laughing at you - you do look more gormless here I think!

'Not sure what your up to though...'

Well I wasn't doing anything at the time, as I was told to stand there while the picture was being taken and I didnt want to look directly at the camera...so yeah :) There was a picture of me working, but it wasn't so good.


'oooh! nice kirtle! Was it terribly cold this weekend, or was it ok?'

Thanks! The weather was lovely and sunny! It got a bit nippy in the morning and evenings but was generally fine, then again, I was in a room with TWO fires!

Yep, the hole really was made by a sword (and a poleaxe....and a bill!)...the joy of owning your own house!

The man on the sofa is Medicus Matt (who used to post here....but hasn't for a while)

You can see the distinctive blunt weapon holes to the right, you lucky thing.

Wayland looks positively boyish.

"Medicus Matt (who used to post here....but hasn't for a while)"

because he is a big girl.

Why on earth would you bash up your own house?! Quite beyond my comprehension!

It's a bloke thing. If you put enough men/boys in a house (or other enclosed area) for long enough at least one wall/door/window will need repairing.


Because there would have to be three of them.

Fortunately, not being a bloke, merely a Gentleman, I never have this problem.

What never? Not even by accident?

My (male) mate had this theory... men tend to add holes to the "decor" while women add cushions and curtains. If a man's flat suddenly gains soft furnishings he's aquired a girlfriend...

I'd agree about the soft furnishings, but the only holes that I have made in my flat so far, apart from ones to hang photos from, is the large one necessary to make a small wardrobe for the 2nd bedroom in the rather oversize 1st bedroom wardrobe.

Not everyone drinks lager made out of yellow flavoured water and watches football you know.
Plus, being my own home, I have no desire to break anything since I shall have to pay to replace it.

My dad's the same. BUT there was the time he accidentally threw an old type golf ball, one of the ones made of coiled rubber, onto the open fire (quick exit for the family), the time he did the ceiling with the Xmas fizz, the time he didn't realise his own strength pulling a lump hammer out of a pile of other stuff, the time when he was showing my brother how not to do a golf stroke, etc, etc

The damage got repaired, but it did get done :D

If anyone who doesn't know Fletch saw it and asked what happened, they'd probably glance just to the side of it and see the pile of weapons stacked against the wall, think "hmm" and desperately make an excuse to leave. 8)

Yo fletch,
I might need some doors replacing in the future, any idea how this could be done in a way in which I could get the old doors into the boot of the car to take to the tip?

Dr Fletch recommends regular topical application of poleaxe, pollhammer and mace, with occasional sword swipes for those hard to reach areas.

Now we need to discuss my bill! :lol:

We have actually dismantled a mate's kitchen "roughly" so are available for likewise at a fee. This was before we took up re-enactment :shock:
