Lee and I love British comedy. We especially enjoy

Hyacinth and Richard Bucket (pronounced Bouquet!)
of Keeping Up Appearances.
Hyacinth so wants to be an Aristocrat, but is much to her dismay only middle class!
At least that is above the status of her sisters Rose and Daisy oh and Daisy's husband Onslow! But her sister Violet had married a wealthy man and has a Mercedes, sauna and room for a pony! LOL
We checked out the entire series from our Library and we have been watching the 30 minutes episodes for 3 days (we start and stop)

We have enjoyed this clan for many years I think the first time we watched it on PBS was in 1995 or 1996, they are hysterical!
If you have not seen this show try to catch it on your PBS station or on BBC America (we no longer have cable/satellite so we get it on PBS on Saturday night here).Hyacinth and the messes she gets into will leave you in stitches.
Patricia Routledge plays Hyacinth and is perfect.


  1. I haven't watched this show but after reading your post, I'm gonna check it out:)


  2. I haven't heard of this but it would be wonderful to have something new and funny to watch for the fall!

  3. I love this show, My MIL fondly called Mrs Bucket (pronounced Bouquet!)as she can be bit like her and she is British as well.

  4. That sounds hysterical!!! I have to check that out!!
    Email me your address, I will be most happy to send you one of the set of my ATC's. You are so sweet!! No need to send one back. When you get bitten by the ATC bug, and make a bunch, just let me know!! I know I will be making more. Last October I made 31 ATC's, one for each day of the month!! I'm crazy like that!!

    Have a great week.
