Comment by: irene roberts on 4th December 2018 at 09:08

That's horrible.

They must be getting ready for all the Work's Christmas do's. That picture on the wall looks suspiciously like Prince Charles - I bet he shot the peacock!

Irene if you was posh that would be something that you would wear on your head at Ascot

Comment by: Maureen on 4th December 2018 at 10:44

It looks like a sleazy boudoir..no thanks.

Comment by: Veronica on 4th December 2018 at 10:44

Looks more like something a saloon girl would wear in the film 'Destry Rides Again'!

Couldn’t agree more Irene.
Looks like a variation on a partridge in a pear tree.

It belongs in a Rio carnival, just the kind of thing they do.

They'll soon be getting complaints from the folks sitting on those sofas, their hair will be full of Peacock droppings.

Quite a Rajesque scene Mick.

Comment by: Pat on 4th December 2018 at 14:32

OMG! That is awful.

I didn't think is was possible for them to make that lobby look worse. I was wrong.

Let it be known.

I am not in the least upset that ignorant slobs like yourselves have savaged my creation . I am an artiste , how can you possibly reach the heights of my creative and imaginative genius . I am at the top of the hill looking down at you below .
Throughout the world I am heralded for my works of art which sell for millions . I walk and mix in the finest circles of all , ‘they’ literally begging I attend in order I may give them some kind of insight into my magic . I throw out my wand and they scatter to gather my sparkle, like children in a Dickens novel . In some ways I feel sorry for you , how can you possibly understand creative genius such as mine . I have been touched by the Gods whereas you have not .
How sad it must be for you .
This is why I feel not a hint of resentment only pity. I must go now my dears , the Queen has asked if I would paint her small favourite lavatory artistically. I told her I was busy but would squeeze her in somewhere .

Have a wonderful Christmas you glorious fools , I take no offence whatsoever at your ignorance .
May your mince pies be splendidly horrid ,
your wine be corked and may Father Christmas avoid your chimneys at all costs .

Yours and with deepest love and affection
Miss Fettle Fettle Door Pop Charming

Looks like something from the Mardi Gras in New Orleans !!Really not in keeping at all.

Are we going to have an "esque" competition.

Comment by: Fred Mason on 4th December 2018 at 21:52

Yo, Britboy....

Down boy, down...

I am trying to run a business here...

Tacky scene...but nice try, Mick..

Comment by: Veronica on 4th December 2018 at 22:18

Grotesque!

Comment by: Maureen on 4th December 2018 at 22:53

Burlesque.

Comment by: Ken R on 5th December 2018 at 00:38

"From Where" should go back From Where it came. This has a Poet sound to me. Your wheels are spinning way off.

Comment by: Veronica on 5th December 2018 at 09:49

Definitely not Poet's style Ken R!

Comment by: DTease on 5th December 2018 at 11:10

Many years ago I had a vision of a room like this after smoking some exotic cigarettes a friend obtained from the West Indies. He swore they were just ordinary cigarettes but I couldn't feel the soles of my feet for two days.

Comment by: Wiganer on 5th December 2018 at 11:26

From Where Whats all that about?

Comment by: Veronica on 5th December 2018 at 12:36

Maureen's comment reminds me of Danny La Rue's head gear in his London Palladium shows - enough said!

Comment by: Veronica on 5th December 2018 at 12:46

stop it Dtease I am choking laughing here!

Comment by: Poet on 5th December 2018 at 12:57

Thank you Veronica. Although I much admire a lone voice in the wilderness, I would never proclaim from the heights of Parnassus.

Comment by: Dave Taylor on 5th December 2018 at 23:51

It looks great. It's time somewhere in Wigan had a "touch of class" Sadly, some Wiganers are so stuck in the past, they seem to hate change of any kind.
