Conker's COUNTRY SEAT ... forced to confess ! ;o)


Conker's COUNTRY SEAT ...       forced to confess !  ;o)

On my previous photo, long-time GoY member, Saraceniac, asked Conker to confess that he owns these spacious gardens ..
so here we have it ...
... Conker's little weekend cottage in the country, where he mows the vast lawns, and spends many happy hours in the Italian Gardens, trimming the topiary and taking tea in the Orangery ;o)

We can never remember in which room we've put the Bonios ...

22 Jun, 2012

 

If he takes paying guests can my cocker spaniel, Rosie, book now please. Oh and she likes champagne cocktails in the library before dinner (which is why I want to board her out). :-)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Sarra ...
Rosie is very welcome to visit ...

... but when she returns home to you, she will expect to be treated in the manner to which she will have become accustomed ...

Breakfast .. Bonios with caviar ..
Lunch ... Cookies with champagne ...
Evening meal ... Biscuits with brandy ... ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Millie and Stanley would like to book a visit please. They don't require 'posh nosh' just sausages for breakfast, dinner and tea! Millie would love to spread all her toy collection over that beautiful lawn :)

22 Jun, 2012

 

I don't have a dog but I would like to book myself in please Lord Conker,

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Gee ...
Sausages for breakfast ?
In our neck of the woods, that is definitely 'posh nosh' ...

Conker will enjoy tidying up Millie's vast toy collection ... he'll put them all in his pram. ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Yorks ..
Would you require en suite ? ... because you are so sweet ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

the best room in the house please Terra, fully inclusive if you don't mind,

22 Jun, 2012

 

You have to share your room with a Corgi .. okay ???

22 Jun, 2012

 

that's fine by me, thank you,

22 Jun, 2012

 

Looks very much at home there? Is he employed as gatekeeper or is he the dogsbody around there?

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol. Oji ...
Conker is definitely in a multi-tasking role ..
Head Gardener, Butler, Nanny, Chauffeur, Chef .... ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Aw COnker is a beauty :)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Pixi... Conker send hugs :o) x

22 Jun, 2012

 

He definitely looks like he belongs there Terra!

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol. Rose .. "To the Manor Born" ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Please may I come too My Lord.....I'll be very good and iron your bonios every morning........but don't put me in the turret room I get vertigo.....

22 Jun, 2012

 

What a grand place. You can sleep in a different room each night :o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Pam ...
... if you are naughty, you'll be sent to the tower !!! ;o)

Hello Hywel ... Lol.
You would wake up wondering "Which room am I in?"

You would need SAT NAV just to reach the front door ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Ooh Sir Truffle wouldn't do that to me....would he....(can I bribe him with bonio's)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Book me in TT for a nice long weekend! :~))))))))))))))

22 Jun, 2012

 

Bonios ? Did someone say Bonios ?
It seems Truffle could be bribed very easily ... ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Grandmage ...
Long weekend all ready for you ...
sauna and sunny days at no extra charge ...

22 Jun, 2012

 

I already wonder what day it is lol

22 Jun, 2012

 

I wish! Just require breakkie in bed, with decaf. coffee.

22 Jun, 2012

 

porage for me with freshly picked blueberries...

what!....

Oh sorry Truffle Sir
I'll fetch your bonio's now sir.....
sorry Sir
getting above myself Sir.....

22 Jun, 2012

 

I just knew that 'Team Terra' were special :))

22 Jun, 2012

 

Are there free toiletries at Conker's pad,Terra ? .If not,I'll have the room next to Yorkie please..I'm sure she won't mind me scrounging..oh,and decaff for me too..Am I being a bit presumptious ) ...maybe Conker will decline my reservation :o))

22 Jun, 2012

 

Careful Pam ...
don't ask for more gruel ;o) x

Lol. Scottish.
Team Terra's secret is out ;o))

Hi Sandra ...
Conker has booked you in a room next to Yorkshire ...
Special extras ..
Free dog shampoo and After Eight Bonios on your pillow :o))

22 Jun, 2012

 

Wow,sheer luxury..! If Yorkie forgets her alarm,I will just bark .Lol.:o))

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol. Truffle is planning to run around and wake everyone at 5 a.m. for an early walk ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Sorry TT. Rosie has to cancel her booking then. She just likes to get up about 6.30 and go in the garden whilst emails are checked and then go for a sedate waddle about 7.30. And she doesn't like Bonio, prefers Markies.

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol. Sarra ... If Rosie changes her mind, there's always a comfy dog bed at the manor house :o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

fabulous pic Terra :-)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Thanks, Surreylad ...
Conker mowed all that grass especially to make the photo look good ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol :-))

22 Jun, 2012

 

I'll happily take the tower room if that's all that's left!

22 Jun, 2012

 

Lol what fun I want to visit too - bet he's all booked up by now - I'll bring Bonios and Champagne.........
Always knew Conker was class :o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Lil .. The tower it is ... from up there you'll get the best views of the estate !

Hello Neena .. Conker says he will always find a spare room for you... whether or not you arrive with dog biscuits ! Lol. ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

Very aristocratic!!

Is he just waiting for the footman to open the gate? ;)))

23 Jun, 2012

 

Lol. Karen .. exactly !
This pic was taken from the carriage drawn by 4 white horses ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

Oh Terra, were you in the carriage?

How nice must it be, to be closely connected to royalty...
...or is all this what he's achieved through super-stardom?? ;D

23 Jun, 2012

 

I am sworn to secrecy ...
... the only hint I can give is ...
"she stoops to Conker" ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

Deep sigh of envy (although I wouldn't want the job of mowing those lawns)! If there's any space, Lord Conker, after all these Goys have arrived, please save me a corner. I shall pack a little bag, ready, just in case!

23 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Gattina ..
There will always be a welcome for you.
You are a valued GoY member ! :o)))

It is possible you'll be sharing a room with Crocus the budgie. Quite a cushy number, because he moults extra feathers for your pillow ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

My idea of the perfect room mate! Have you actually ASKED Crocus about this yet? I wouldn't want to intrude!

23 Jun, 2012

 

Doh! A budgie is useless for filling pillows, you need at least a pigeon. If you don't have one, I can supply one from my brassica beds.

23 Jun, 2012

 

I was thinking of bringing the fluff from under my bed!

23 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Gattina ...
Crocus sent you a tweet .. didn't you receive it ?

Oooh ... Italian fluff ... sounds interesting ...

Hello Sarra ...
Watch it, or you won't be offered a feather bed... you'll be sleeping in the brassica bed ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

I did think I heard SOMETHING - but you must remember how deaf I am. Unfortunately, NOT true Italian fluff - cheap imported hybrid stuff. :o(

23 Jun, 2012

 

Hybrid fluff ... ?
Is that some kind of cottage industry you've got going over there in Bologna ???

23 Jun, 2012

 

We had one of those going in Scarborough once. But we called it a Calzone pizza.

23 Jun, 2012

 

OMG, Sarra! That's not nice! (I know what you mean though!) Never touch 'em myself.

23 Jun, 2012

 

LOLOL! That did make me laugh! Italian secrets...
EXPOSED!! :)))

I (secretely) quite like calzone...as long as the egg is alright... :D

23 Jun, 2012

 

Thank you Conker my bag is packed ;o)

23 Jun, 2012

 

I hope Conker has someone to help him with the lawns, they're so extensive they'd be impossible for him to do on his own!! lol

23 Jun, 2012

 

Well I don't think that lawn is as well groomed as Conker :)

24 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Sheila ...
Conker spends hours and hours out there walking up and down with his tiny toy lawn mower ;o)

Thank, Pim ...
Conker loves being groomed :o)

25 Jun, 2012

 

Very cute dog watching at the gate..........

25 Jun, 2012

 

Thank you :o)

25 Jun, 2012

 

Is there enough room for us to stay for the weekend LOL!!!!

25 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Louis..
A whole suite of rooms all ready for you.. LOL. !!!

25 Jun, 2012

 

Lovely TT is there room for me and my man just for a very long weekend and to be spoilt rotten, ......

28 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Lesley ... Thanks ...
You and your man are very welcome. The honeymoon suite has been reserved especially for you ...
On your pillows, you'll find complimentary Bonios ;o)

28 Jun, 2012

 

That's brilliant TT but do you have any Dreamies for Stripes ..... as he ask's for them every morning, you think i'm joking he's costing me a fortune when they first came out they cost 99p now there anything from £1-50 to £2-00, you've never seen such a spoilt moggie as he is, but we love him dearly.......

28 Jun, 2012

 

Dreamies have been ordered for Stripes ...
... each morning on a silver tray ;o)

28 Jun, 2012

 

I wasn't sure moggies were welcome, TT. May I bring my 23?

29 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Gattina ...
Yes, we can "CAT"er for as many moggies as you wish :o)

29 Jun, 2012

What are the rates per week, Jamie Say's he Fancy's chasing rabbits around there

3 Jul, 2012

 

Hi Brian ...
Plenty of space for Jamie ...
... and very special rates for very special spaniels ;o)

4 Jul, 2012

 

Can I come too. Dont mind where I sleep or who with!!! I like the pink coloured doggy biscuits. Haven't had one of those since I was 12.....

6 Jul, 2012

 

Hi Homebird.
You are very welcome to stay, and, for you, pink-coloured doggie biscuits will be served on a silver tray ;o)

6 Jul, 2012

 

Well, he certainly looks like he owns it! And he wouldn't look out of place in a house like that either! :D

10 Jul, 2012

 

Hi Karen ...
Conker has asked me for a larger toy mower ... ;o)

10 Jul, 2012

 

I can imagine him on a ride on mower Terra!

10 Jul, 2012

 

With his toy push-mower, Conker doesn't steer very straight ..
I can't imagine that would improve with a ride-on ..

..... crop-circles here we come ;o)

10 Jul, 2012

 

I'd like a room in the West Wing, if possible, but if you can't manage that, I'd be happy to curl up with Conker and Truffle anywhere really.

30 Jul, 2012

 

Hi Tuesdaybear ..
West wing has been reserved especially for you :o)))

30 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks Gudia :o)
