"I have distilled the accumulated wisfom of years of candlelight suppers and charity sub-committee meetings in creating this tastefully designed book which will help you live your life in the way I expect you to... Read it and please don't let me down any more."

I used to watch this series when I lived in London, and found it very, very funny! So when I saw it in Alejanda's WishList, I thought it would make a very nice present for the Birthday Group.

It was really nice to read about Hyacinth's thoughts on how to keep up appearances :)

Oh my goodness, it's Mrs Bucket! Surprise book was personally delivered to me at our annual recycling meetup! Thank you ever so much, Jennynen, it was wonderful to have you Pori crossers in Turku!

Oh dear. Hyacinth tried her best, but she might have relied a little too heavily on her wonderful adventures on tv. No new stories to tell, no new amusing pictures (only a drawing of the Royal Doultons I'm afraid) and as there were no surprising answers from her family members, the book fell a little flat. A nice book to leaf through for any die-hard fan though, loved some of the expressions on the pics and could vividly hear the actors' voices while reading.

Poor book is starting to lose its pages! I'll try to find some glue before passing the book forward...

EDIT: Holding onto the book until I get to see MiuM in a meet-up or another...

Thank you for this wonderful wishlist book!

This was a bit different than I expected, but nice reading nevertheless. A different form of narrative would have been appreciated.

Hyacinth made her entré to Helsinki in the Köket-meet-up. She would not have chosen a café with such a common name, but it happens to be in the very posh and expensive neighbourhood by the Senate Square, so she was by no means in dire street. Looking very much forward to getting aqcuainted with her Etiquette.

Keeping up with traditions as well as appearances - this will be a delayed birthday present to Chania once the courier comes to town.
I totally agree with Hyacinth; a chapter called Family Relations should have a subtitle "Etiquette Under Stress". So very true.
The book is shedding its pages and I propose it should be handled with utmost care and not released wildly.

Yes I have some books waiting for Chania :)

Journal Entry 17 by Chania at Kokkola, Keski-Pohjanmaa / Mellersta Österbotten Finland on Saturday, April 22, 2017
Thank you so much! Absolutely lovely, charming book! I am going to so enjoy this!

Pleasant reading, very posh like Mrs Bucket herself. She is such an irritating woman, but I just have to admire her - I wish I had the self-confidence she has.

Now sending this to someone, who mentioned wanting to read it in Facebook.
