Stradbrooke Community Centre was packed full of  teams from East Suffolk W.I's and we all got a bit worried when the lady who had set the questions said they were all based on Shakespeare. BUT it was OK as actually she based them on the 7 ages of man speech. So in the first round all questions had the word Baby in the question, and so on through the evening.

We would have done better IF we had stuck to first thought and put beetles instead of changing to ants and IF I hadn't thought that a lamb shank couldn't be from below the knee and if we had picked Elephant out of a list of creatures for gestation times rather than Blue whale.
I could go on!
But we were lucky with a couple of guesses including the fact that globophobia is a fear of balloons and the useful thing Harry Beck drew in 1931 was the London Underground map.
But who knew baby bats were called pups?.......we guessed kittens

Anyway, after seven rounds and a picture quiz of actors playing parts in Shakespeare (luckily we had to guess the actor rather than the role) we came joint 7th out of 22 teams.

 Results are on the screen but my photo is too fuzzy to read

There was a break for coffee, sandwiches and cakes of course. It's W.I. so there HAS to be coffee and cakes!

Many thanks for all the  comments yesterday and to Joan who had looked up another possible origin for April Fools Day.

Back Tomorrow


  1. Seventh is really pretty good and you obviously had loads and loads of fun. I thought they were called kittens too.

  3. I always imagine an enormous pot of tea at the WI. Sounds like the quiz is good fun if not taken too seriously.

  4. Sounds like fun. I love quizzes! Well done on 7th place.

  5. David loves quizzes and goes every tuesday evening. I on the other hand really don't like them. Especially the post mortems afterwards! Sounds like your WI is not at all like the one I used to go to. I can only listen to so many talks on "my holiday in France" !
    A little rain today, but then we need the rain here...do you?

  6. I hate quizzes but the idea behind yours sound excellent.

  7. Seventh sounds pretty good.We always come out of a quiz saying “why didn’t we go for that etc...”
