Mad woman found rolling around in the grass in the suburbs of London. Just read a post about washing your face in the morning dew on the first day of May. It is supposed to restore your youth. Gosh there will have to be a lot of dew around this morning. It seems that some mad woman from Croydon area went out this morning to do such a thing. However she forgot to put on her dressing gown. It is thought that she has frightened not only the local kids but many a man who live in the vicinity were seen running for the hills! Poor Gilly girl will probably write a post later if matron gives her permission to access a computer! Happy Mad May day everyone!

Hello Gawwy! I have been out talking to my poppies. Matron allowed me to do this. I am further away from Croydon and more in to leafy Surrey. One simply does not venture in to Croydon. I am a posh Scouse! This of course is an oxymoron. What! What! In the merry month of May I like to sing, laugh and play The sun here is very shiney And I can tan my little hiney What! What!

What is this habit to wash your face in the morning dew? I did not know and now it's too late.

Maybe next year you can fit this one into your schedule on the first day of May, Anna. I can see you writing it on your calendar right now so you won't forget.

@MarshaMusselman At least I did not forget to pick up a bouquets of lily of the valleys and to put on our table. This is a French tradition that I like to respect, this brings good luck.

Hellloooooo! Oh no I'm not. I am freely roaming around whilst I have no clue where Gary is. He's probably erected a Maypole in his garden and is pretending to be a little gnome whilst he does a silly dance around the pole.

It would be nice if the dew worked, but nevertheless it would be a good excuse to be out at dawn on a lovely morning like this. Happy May day!

When I read the first bit, and before seeing the person who posted it, I thought it was a post from @Gillygirl talking about herself :D :P :) I can't say that's a familiar tradition to me but we English ladies do have unusual habits. I wouldn't like to go outside without remembering to put something on. It's still a little chilly!

OH dear it looks like Gilly has wriggled out of her straight jacket and got on the computer! Bless her Perhaps we could all club together and buy her a onesie so that at least she is covered up when she ventures out unescorted.

@garymarsh6 I'll have no part in the encouragement of onesie-wearing. Next, she'll be seen out wearing crocs (have you seen the new ones with the little bum bag thingy on the back?). I am, however, all for tightening up the straight jacket or offering a padded cell.

What, what? Is right, lol. I've never heard of 'mad may day' before and we don't celebrate may day either, so I almost forget all about it. Did the lady at least have some underwear on? That would be weird to be sure. I know that people with dementia or alzheimer's might walk about outside without clothing on as some aunts did that years ago. Unfortunately, my mom was sleepwalking some years ago before her dementia got really bad. She'd been on a certain sleeping pill which we then took away from her because of this situation. She went in the middle of the night across the street and the neighbors returned her to her house. She did have on a shirt and panties and at least it wasn't winter. Maybe it just appeared that she was trying to restore her youth. Maybe she woke up or came to and was trying to hide herself among the grass blades?
