It has been some days since the good folk of Swords and Spindles ventured to the bright lights of the big city to entertain all comers at Family Tree Live. Truth be told it has taken us some time to walk home, not having the aid of horseless carriages as modern folk do.
We had a wonderous time sharing details of our lives. We recruited an army for the king, equipping volunteers with armour and sword. There were many shameless women sporting the britches of a man but we were swift to advise them on modest dress, not that the goodwives amongst our company know aught of modesty.
Mistress May whiled away the time with toys and other frivolities.
Master Christopher cured a few ailments and none returned for a second ‘cure’. He claims that this is because of the efficacy of his treatments but in truth methinks it may be more to do with the invasive nature of his interventions.
Sir William and Sir Francis deigned to associate with the peasantry. Mayhap they had their eyes out for the witches amongst us. Passers-by were challenged to solve the puzzle of the horseshoes and a few glasses of ale were earned by the gentlemen, as visitors failed to rise to the challenge.
We were grateful to the disreputable Goody Begum, who helped us whilst Mistress Agnes had to travel to the twenty-first century.
There were many enquiries for our services so mayhap you will encounter us out and about afore long.
