The Rt Hon Plantagenet and Primrose Big-Mouse were delighted to be introduced to Araminta’s latest beau Montmorency Mouse, at a recent ‘at home’ held in their tasteful drawing room at the sumptuous and well appointed Plantagenet House, in London.
Primrose looked splendid in her up to the minute fashionable gingham check pinafore dress, toning red knitted booties and polka dot top. Plantagenet sported a hand knitted jersey and gingham check trews.
Plantagenet and Primrose Big-Mouse are well known long noses amongst the capital’s mouserrati. Their own whirlwind romance united two of the city’s oldest and most well respected mouse families.
A new round of frenzied romantic speculations have involved their eldest daughter Araminta, who recently came of age.
It is understood Montmorency may have a ‘big question’ to ask of Plantagenet! Is that the sound of distant wedding bells we hear?
Here’s Fairy to tell you all about it . . . .
We are simply delighted to visit you this afternoon, Primrose and Plantagenet. It is very kind of you to invite me along to accompany Araminta and Montmorency.
Butler! More cakes please! I love these scrumptious cakes, they are divine. Primrose, did you bake them yourself? ‘No, my dear, they were delivered fresh this morning from Harrods,’ replies our elegant hostess.
I like the tasteful décor too, you have some nice things.
Well, this is all very good, but I would like a quiet word with you, Plantagenet.
. . . it’s about Minty’s and Monty’s future . . .
Oh, time for the official group photograph now!
Thank you so much, Primrose! We have had a such a lovely afternoon. Before we go, would it be ok if we had some more salad sandwiches? I have a little rumble in my tummy!
