The Supersizers Eat... The Twenties!

This episode has got to be one of my faves. I love it because a) the fashion was pretty cool back then b) Sue's hair cut really suited her and c) it's just a very funny episode. Oh and d) Teddy is just adorable. And if you've never seen the ep. before, you'll see what I mean in a moment.

I have taken many many pics of this one, but I will only use a select few. So... hope you enjoy them!

Here is Sue's reaction to when she's just had her hair cut. She said "I look like an evil doll." when actually it really suited her, and it made her look much younger than her normal hair cut makes her look.

Here is Giles and Sue at the British Museum. Dressed like that, Giles looks like he could play Oliver, in Oliver Twist. Obviously, only if Oliver was a man, and not a boy. And Sue is in a bright blue dress.

Again Sue is wearing blue, but this time in a Japanese-style dressing gown, with sleeves that dangle down. And Giles is in a red dressing gown.

Here is Giles lying on the sofa reading, while Sue is attempting a bit of yoga. Can you spot Teddy?

Yes! There he is, sitting beside Giles on the sofa. Do you think he likes what Giles is reading? That is if Giles has read any of it out loud to him. Ha ha!

Look! There's Teddy again, watching Giles making a cocktail. Any ideas what he could be thinking?

And here is Sue looking at Giles after trying his custard for the Mock Peach Melba. See what I mean about the hair cut suiting her? Oh, and the red lipstick's great too! It contrasts well with her dark hair and stripy top/jumper.

Here Giles is at a cocktail bar guzzling down a cocktail. I think he liked it.

Here is Sue trying out some 1920s dance moves.

Here are Sue's abstract and realistic sketches of Teddy. The realistic one is my fave. It's just simple. Using basic lines to draw him. It's a lovely little sketch.

And here is Giles reading a poem out loud, with Teddy under one arm. It's like Teddy is Giles' child, and he is reading Teddy a bedtime story. Too cute! If anyone can tell me what Teddy is thinking here, or in any of the other pics with him in, then you get a shoutout/mention on Twitter or on my blog! Or perhaps even on both!

Bus conductor Giles!

Sue trying to sell a raw sausage to a man. Couldn't help laughing at this!

And the final picture is of Sue and Giles in their finest Bright Young Things gear. That is a huge feather on Sue's head! But the black and red hat and the red dress do look great on her!

So instead of using just a select few pics, I ended up using most of them! 14 in total! There were more I'd have liked to have used, but I've already done enough (more than enough) already!

Thank you for reading this blog post and looking at my pics. Remember, the person who comes up with the best idea for what Teddy is thinking will win a special mention/shoutout on my blog/Twitter.
