Frock Off Mrs Doyle!

Well, well, well.
Who have we here?
It's Mrs Doyle sneaking a lovely cuppa in Father Ted's kitchen!

Yes, she's been run right of her feet today looking after all the dear fathers and brothers, clearing up after them in the parish house.

She's wearing a lovely cotton number especially for the grand occasion of Frock on a Friday.
Originally named Ugly Betty by our dear Sister Sarah Misfit, Mrs Doyle has seen fit to rename the frock after herself.
She's a bit of a domestic slut thank the lord, so she'll probably get that pile ironing into shape in a month or so.

And tell me where would Mrs Doyle be without her moustache kindly blessed by Saint Helga von Trollop?
She'd probably be less scary to this wee novice aka Number Three Son.
Oh he's too shy to accept a lovely wee cuppa to make it all better.
Oh go on. 
Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on.
You'll feel much better for it!

 Father Jack's having one of his off days so Mrs Doyle gets a well-deserved break from turning this:
Into this:
Her domestic sluttery know no bounds.
It took about six months to get around to that righteously heinous task.


 Go on!


Oh it's jolly nice print isn't it?  Me blessed virgin would approve of this frock.


 Yes, there she is bless her.

 The laddie's coming 'round to the idea, I'm sure of it!


 Oh have a lovely cuppa on me all you lovelies and take a spot of Mrs Doyle with you into the weekend.
You're welcome sisters.

Miss Rayne said...

and don't forget the biscuits...
some Nice or Rich Tea tucked in the saucer so when you pick up the cup they slide down and you can't put it back again

Hahaha, that has cheered me up no end! Love Father Ted, and you have almost reached the same dizzy heights of fabulous fashion as the sainted Mrs Doyle.

Thank you so much you cheering me up and making a sunny day even sunnier.
We all need a friend like you to blow away the cobwebs of boredom and
encourage us to be ourselves, thanks for sharing and hope number three son has recovered x.

pastcaring said...

Hahahaha! Oh Mrs D, you spoil us with your tea and your moustache and your craziness!
No.3 son's face in the second pic of him is hilarious!
Careful now, Desiree, you are in danger of losing your hard-won title of domestic slattern, what with all your tidying...
And what do you say to a cup?
Feck off, cup!

Cosmia said...

Woohoo! Mrs. Doyle is an awesome role model ;D

Celynne said...

That is a kickin' dress! Great pattern. Love it paired with those tights.

I've been telling myself to clean out the spare room for something like 2 months now hah. Maybe I'll actually get around to it this weekend? Hm... hehe.

CRY said...

Love the dress
you are just so darn fun
I of course noticed the Michael Parks picture hanging on yor wall. He is one of my FAV. Artists.
when we were going to move we just need to do (as you would say) "a cleaning Enama" and had a garage sale. I had the Michael parks picture of the Little Girl Blowing bubbles and a gargoyle was chasing it off the cliff she is standing on while another gargoyle sits by her watching. no one bought it, it went to the Goodwill. I wish I wouldnt have gotten rid of it.

Krista said...

That print on you with those tights divine! The shot of you in that wheel chair is pretty freaking amazing, the look says it all. I love seeing more of your place and your sweet boy who politely said no :)

I spy Ferby's no way, I have a king one that I love!!!! Cool cool cool. Lovely as always sweetie!

Vix said...

Desiree, you are priceless! Mrs Doyle looks magnificent on you and Number three son's expression is priceless.
I think you are in danger of loosing the slattern title, your house looks spotless. Where's the grubby paw prints on the windows and the swathes of dust on the floor? C'mon, have a word or we'll be chucking you out of the club.

Tee hee - your moustache and your son's "no tea" expression is priceless! Ah Father Ted - what a great series - Mrs Doyle would be proud to see this glam rendition - what a fab print! And thank the lord for my fellow domestic slatterns!
