When Beryl met Malcolm.

I have received my package from Sophie of Fading Grace.
Did any of you guess what it was?
Is anybody else getting fed up of waiting for her Jumble sale blog? Only kidding Sophie (not).

Well, this is how it all came about.
I have a butterfly named Beryl, she is a beauty, beautiful Beryl.
Now beauties like Beryl don't like to be alone, she is of a flighty nature you see. She rather reminds me of Rita Fairclough of Coronation Street.
I have been aware of Beryls lonely plight for a while but have never found the right companion for her.
She likes dapper, she fancies the mature type, she has high standards.

You can imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon the perfect partner for my beautiful Beryl whilst visiting one of my fave blogs.
I explained the plight of lonely Beryl to Sophie and checked that her new friend was of suitable social standing and a date was arranged.
Malcolm (yes, I know, the perfect gents name) would travel over as soon as Sophie had made the necessary arrangements and they could then spend the rest of their lives together, here in my house at the end of the runway.
Beryl had sensed that something rather exciting was about to happen. I could tell because she has been all of a flutter.
I had been out this morning and on my arrival home there he was with a little postcard by way of a formal introduction.
He has arrived safely and seems quite cool about the whole thing but I feel that with a name like Malcolm he could only ever be cool.
So here they are.

A rather eye catching pair don't you think.
They will become closer together over time. Malcolm is a gentleman and wishes to take things slowly, Beryl, well she is still flighty but is just happy with the company for the moment.
This really is a happy corner of my home today.

I will be back tomorrow with 'other Oooh Bettys' guest post.
Thanks for reading. X
