Well, about 2 months ago I was abducted by cow robots from TCA Labs.
On escape, the first thing on my mind was “Write a new Queenwilly post!” and as I was running back to the castle through the village I spotted this sign.
I had to have a brief lie down, but I assure my loyal subjects that I am now back on the battlements.

A royal snorkel last week on Rottnest Island, off the coast of Perth Australia.
I am wearing my amazing new video goggles as I swim (sorry about the hair).
Watch for the mutant three-legged seagull in my next post.

I was feeling a little tired of my usual recipes – usually asian or french – so on the weekend I crossed the Pacific to Cuba with a can of Frijoles Negros and some juicy prawns.
Blanched sliced onion pickled in lime and mandarin juice
Black beans boiled with freshly made sazon powder
Fried garlic and eschallots
Salad ingredients combined
Prawns fried by The King with mild chilli sauce
YUM (sorry it's a bit blurry)

This is the box it arrived in.
Now, sorry, but is this telling us something about US sales assistants?

No royalty was harmed during the making of this video. Much.

It’s hard to describe what it is about Australia that I love so much, but I think it is summed up for me in this quote from an official, happily published in a major Sydney newspaper.
“To be quite frank, I think the problem is everybody is arse-covering,” Mr Murphy said.
I have a lot of problems with the rest of the article, but bless you Mr Murphy. You made my day.

Last night, the new Uni-students-who-party-every-night next door intrigued us with the sound of splashing and diving in between the usual bad drumming and clinking of beer bottles at 2am.
Intrigued, this morning The King and I climbed to the top battlement and looked down on the neighboring castle.
Apart from being impressed at the sheer unapologetic pardy-ness of their back verandah, we were gobsmacked to see that they had rented a huge blow-up pool.
The View from the Battlements
The Royal Handmaiden assures me that we wouldn’t be able to fit one on the carriageway for our next soirée – dang.
But now my ever-present desire for a lap pool down the side of the castle has reared its head again (quote was hideously expensive, even though I did not reveal the true horror to The King).
I am now wondering about pulling the duranta out of the middle of the royal courtyard and installing a small round plunge pool instead.
Royal plan below.
