I'M introducing a new thingy to the blog. I'm calling it Famous Five Says...
Every so often - don't hold me to a routine - I'll whack up a quip from the Famous Five books I've started rereading. Already the books have inspired a drink and a nostalgia trip of ridiculous proportion and I thought I'd share a little of the wisdom and whimsy of the five's adventures.

It was a lovely picnic, that first one in the copse. There were clumps of primroses all round, and from somewhere nearby came the sweet scent of hidden violets. A thrush was singing madly on a hazel tree, with two chaffinches calling "pink pink" every time he stopped
"Band and decorations laid on," said Julian, waving his hand towards the singing birds and the primroses.

  1. Enid Blyton is the reason we go on picnics I'm sure. We just had another one tonight. Even when the weather is horrible and the family is horrid they still want to go on picnics because they are meant to be fun. We know so because Enid told us so. Cherrie

  4. You know, I've never read a Famous Five book! I've read absolutely everything else by Enid such as Secret Seven and Naughties girl in school, Noddy etc but not the Famous Five. I think I need to!
