Here’s my cheeky entry to the Bloggers Bash Blog Post Competition 2018, sorry your majesty!
The Queen’s forehead creased in worry, she’d had enough, so many engagements, accompanied by endless rounds of champagne, canapes and caviar.
She turned to her trusted adviser, ‘Dear fellow,’ she enquired, ‘Could you help me? I’d like to be a commoner for the day, to ride a double-decker bus full of beer swilling pensioners, purchase a sale bra and cheap stone-washed jeans. Oh, and I’d like to get to the lowly department store via a rusty old bike.’
Her adviser’s jaw dropped as if she had asked him whether he picked his very large nose.
He wandered off, or hid she wasn’t sure. She contemplated chopping his head off but decided against it. Instead, she turned to Google to find an answer. A wonderful site proposed A Royal Dress Down Day with a difference plus a Royal surprise. She squealed with delight. Her corgis hid under the bed in shock. She sighed; even her dogs were turning against her!
She squinted at the small print. The Dress Down Day promised a Fairy Godmother, a basic bra fit, a guarantee of poor service plus a cup of strong builder’s tea to wash down her disappointment. She signed a special disclaimer to say she wouldn’t complain.
The day loomed, Elizabeth was so excited! But, being a commoner wasn’t as great as she thought it would be. The Fairy Godmother turned out to be a little girl in a tutu who kept on whining. Instead of riding on a bike she had to get to the department store via an over populated ocean on a jet ski, and the pair of jeans clung to her body like a clinging wetsuit.
All very inappropriate for a woman of her age. She picked up her diamond tiara. Back to business as usual.
If you want to enter the competition you better get your skates on, tomorrow is the last day!

Thank you Judy. It’s nice to write humour for a change!
So very clever, Marje. For one brief moment, I thought she’d seen the post about the upcoming Bloggers Bash 😂Don’t tell Sacha I said that. 😱
Good luck in the competition.
Thanks Hugh. So glad you enjoyed particularly as I struggled with this. Then it came to me whilst I was at work. Humour. It had to be Humour!
I’m glad it never beat you, Marje. I, sometimes, give up too easily.
LOL! Poor Elizabeth! <3
Love this it made me chuckle. Good luck, sis. xxx

This is funny! If I was the queen doing a dress down day, however, I’d lose the bra. 😂 – Molly

Well done! I wish I had been there to pass on the crown. A fun dress down day is just what Queenie could do with. Congratulations and jubilations, as sir Cliff would say.
Thank you Ellen. It was such a surprise! I think I said so much nonsense at my speech after as I was so shocked! Lol. Wish you could have been at the BB hope to see you next time Ellen. x
I was going to hand over the mantle but maybe you will pass it back someday xxx
Brilliant. Congratulations Marje. 🌼
