Girls Who Do It
Girls Who Do It follows four firm friends throughout planning for, and while they are staying at the Clover Spa Hotel in Ireland.
Hi-jinx ensue between the four friends, but intrigue lies just behind the scenes. Just who is Barbara Knox? Who is Aoife Cassty? And to whom do the sexy knickers belong to?
Launching Spring 2014. You can see the first chapter preview in Girls Who Do It
Hi, my name is Barbara, but I like to be known as Babs. I have a broken back, a red soft top Mercedes and a cat called Shifty. I love to share him as he is really owned by my good neighbour, Diane.
I like to tell people, all my friends how I broke my back by slipping on a marble floor in the biggest poshest hotel in the Algarve. It even served champagne at 1,000 Euros. Cheap at half the price! Of course I tell everybody how awful my accident was, because when I went to hospital by private helicopter [pink so it could be seen] my stomach hurt as well. You are not going to believe it, I burst my appendix. Hey ho, I don’t like doing anything by half.
My friends do everything with me, as I think and know it’s best that I choose what we do, as I can do anything that I want to do. So if they want to be happy like me, and have loads of fun, they have to come with me. Though I can’t understand - when I organise things that I want to do, they don’t want to - though I believe they should after all life is fantastic, and what I say I do and it is always loads of fun.
I insist everything be done to a time table. I hate people who are late. After all it’s the height of rudeness. I mean don’t you agree!!!
Well, that’s about all for me now, this is a wonderful insight into me. Ciao darlings!!!
‘Hello I am Louise, but everybody calls me Lou. I’m in my 40’s, married to Ben who is the love of my life. We have two dogs, our boys called Hex and Badger, Parsons Jack Russells, who always seem to be getting into mischief.
I have a very busy life, no time to sit and relax, on the go all the time. My boss, Pauline the slave driver, even said to me, the other day, “You will meet yourself coming backwards one of these days.” Well, what do you expect I have to be up at 6am to walk the boys, then off round to Dad’s to make sure he’s up and dressed. Cook him bacon and eggs with white toast, he won’t touch anything else. He’s a grumpy old bugger and, I think, slowly losing his marbles. I love him dearly and worry that he won’t be able to cope much longer. At least Robert his old friend is seeing him today.
Then I am off to work, I travel along the same old route, past the post office. The red house with ivy all over the door. I’m sure I could get there with my eyes shut. Sometimes I think I do. Have you ever driven somewhere, usually home and thought, I don’t remember doing that?
I will tell you about my work later on. Lunch times I only grab three quarters of an hour as I like to come home at 4.30. I go to the gym three times a week for a workout of circuit training or tennis, depending on the weather, with Sally Ann, Babs and Shrek. Shrek is a big Irish guy who is gay as the day is long. We girls call him Shrek, but not to his face ... he is always green with envy of all the lovely handsome men we attract.
6.30 It’s time for home, feed the boys, and cook tea. Ben always likes it hot and ready for when he gets in. Thank God I cook stew often as it lasts 2 days. Usually on the second day I put curry powder in it and tell him it’s ‘Mamas Special’. I always get a red hot smooch with that one.
7.45 I take the boys for a long walk, sometimes Ben comes as well.
9.30 I get home, wash up, put the washing on, and then have a lovely hot bath with bubbles, fall asleep usually in the bath, and then go to bed. Have you ever woken up in cold water? Not nice!! Especially when you look in the mirror, you look like a prune and at least 20 years older!
My phone is ringing ... I must dash, talk later, Bye.’
Hi my name is Sally Ann and this is an introduction to me. Well, where do I start, I’m 56, though my friends just don’t believe it, hehehe. I am divorced from Ian, although we still keep in touch. He still loves me and a small part of me still loves him. I have a lovely daughter called Gina and a great son called Gerry. G and G are just my tonic.
I am a beauty therapist and I love my job. Oh and I mustn’t forget my man friend, Simon, who I don’t live with any more as we decided we needed some space, though we still see a lot of each other as he is soooo good in bed, you know what I mean, especially after a drink or two.
Thank goodness I love sport, all kinds as Derrick, my tennis partner, well knows. I think that’s about all, got to go and see my fit window cleaner, Andy, he always loves it when I pay him. Catch up with you later, Bye Bye.’
‘Well, hello, I’m Shad-rick, I’m middle aged, though I don’t look it. I’m Irish and come from a large family in County Cork. Everybody knows us. We are the Thynnes-Shane
I had to leave home as Daddy and Mummy wouldn’t understand me. One of my brothers, Patrick, knows but wouldn’t dare say anything. After all he couldn’t really as he likes to wear ladies underwear as well. I mean the silkiness and the tight fit, with that little bit of lace, it’s so divine. He’s lucky he can get into normal sizes like 12 - 14. He’s got such a pert bum, whereas I have to go to Heavens to get mine.
I must tell you this, the other day I was in Heavens and saw this lovely red and black Basque. It was just my size, 20, and 1 just had to have it. It’s so sexy, with knickers to match. Bonus was the handsome dark haired stallion at the till. It would have been lovely if he could have served me. Though he did say that would look lovely on, dead sexy. He gave me a wonderful smile and said, “Have a nice day,” ‘oh how I wish.’
At least I have got my new pink and silver trainers, they should go nicely with my pink polo shirt and silver tracksuit. I expect the ladies will be green with envy. I was lucky to get them, as they were the only ones left for my small size 10 feet.
My job, as a gardener for Lord and Lady Twitcher, gives me plenty of time to do my thing in the evenings. I get off work at 4.45pm three times a week, and only have to work every other Saturday.
I love going to the gym to tone my heavenly body and meet up with my wonderful friends. I am so lucky to have met Sally Ann, Lou and Babs. We always have such fun with our lovely girly talk. They give me such good tips on how to get a good man.
OO, I’m slightly tired, I have been up since 6 am having to water the baby buddleias, flowers and weed, weed, weed. My favourite flowers are tulips as they come from Amsterdam, of course weed isn’t so bad over there.
A hot bath with my new strawberry bubble bath is calling, then a manicure. I love to smell lovely for my hairdresser Toni as I’m having my hair styled tonight. Bye Bye Darlings. Mwah Mwah!!
Hi my name is Pippa, though most people call me Pip. Probably because I don’t suffer idiots kindly and can get quite short with them.
My life is very busy. I run my own fashion business. That is, getting people to see fashion as a great way to get noticed. This is mainly for business and, of course, when they attend work functions. It is lovely to see them dressed in my fashion clothes. The outfits are definitely the best.
I am going through a messy divorce. My soon-to-be-ex Husband “Raffael” is trying to take me to the cleaners and claim half my business. Well as you can imagine, the rows are pretty heated and I have lost my patience more than once. He is such a fool why do you think I made my business “Pippa Woos’ Limited” with only my name on it. May be I have told you too much!!
Got to go, I am meeting Sally Ann - she is one of my customers and a very good friend.
Bye for now
Hi, my name is Cathy ,I am in my early thirties and I am very fortunate to be married to Henry.
I don’t have to go out to work, thank goodness. As I have a lot to do with charities. My main one is ‘Riding for the Disabled’. I am disabled this was due to my own stupidity. I tied my pony up to the front door knocker. As I went in the back door slammed shut frightening my pony. I reached back my hand got caught in the doorway as Bella pulled back. Not good. Bella was fine she was found up the lane with a letter box and knocker hanging from her bridle. As for me to cut a long story short I lost my left hand. Thank goodness it was not my right as I am right handed. Imagine trying to wipe your bum with the wrong hand eeeek!!
Gosh look at the time, its 11.30. I better get down to the Gym. Sally Ann said she would be there at noon. Hopefully Shad Rick and Pip will be there. We can see if we can get a free court.
Catch you later, Bye .
