A Picnic For Daddy

Hyacinth is very excited at the prospect of having her new three piece suite, an exact replica of the one at Sandringham House, delivered. She will also give Daisy and Onslow her old suite, provided they pick it up themselves. But of course these two events are likely to collide at some point, creating an insurmountable disaster.


Hyacinth is speaking by phone to the company that will be delivering her three-piece suite.

Hyacinth:  I’m ringing to ascertain the precise time that you intend to deliver. And will it be one of your vans with the Royal Warrant on? [she listens] All your vans have the Royal Warrant? That’s good. [she pauses] On both sides? Because if it’s only on the one side, I shall want you to park facing town. [she listens] You have the Royal Warrant on both sides. That’s very good.
