Trust your instincts and let me in, just be my ride and I'll be your friend

Meet me out in the bike shed.....we'll have a little fun.....

Naturally, I look far too splendid to actually get up to too much mischief....I don't want my hair messed up, if you don't mind.....although a little bed hair never hurt anyone....


I never met anyone in the bike shed in my life!
Being a slow learner (shall we say), I just wasn't interested in that sort of carry on until much later than everyone else.
Loser, much?!
I'm fine with it.
I've never been one to follow the pack, funnily enough.

I was pretty excited to be wearing my newly made square dance frock, and was pondering the perfect jacket to wear with it.....when I remembered this jacket, that I made about 5 years ago!
And it just happens to have stripey circusy buttons that compliment my spotty stripey circusy square dance wonder of a frock to perfection!

Lovely Sue sent me this exquisite brooch in a recent Parcel of Joy...I fecking love it.
I have more brooches than I've had hot dinners, but just don't wear them enough!
Must rectify this!
( o, crap, I just sneezed all over the screen. ugh)

Frock and jacket-made 'em myself

Flower-Ubud, Bali
Intelligent expression-all my own, thanks to these smarty pants glasses....

I raise you two, Goody!

To finish, here is my darling Peepers, spread out like  hovercraft on the roof of  our deck!

She's so farking cute I could just squeeze all the juice out of her!

Whoops, did I say that out loud?!

If she'd keep trouble at bay, they'd give her the money and diamonds, be queen for a day

"Show me yer petticoat, luv!"
O, all right then...

Peepers is disappearing into her catnip jungle...catnip helps soothe her over the being locked out of the bedroom scenario...

I feel positively statuesque in these platform boots!
My feet have not been happy campers lately, requiring more ...dare I say it...sensible footwear....
But that means when I wear heels, it's not as painful as it has been over the last few months.
I know, I know, beauty is pain.
But feck it, my feet are my castle!

Recent opshop scores!
A divoon set of cannisters (I have more now than I can poke a stick at, as my Father used to say. Meaning A LOT), a couple of pairs of tights, a sweet sunglasses case, sewing kit and purse, a "gold" triple necklace, a glittery belt that I've turned into a headpiece, and some more groovy old hangers!
The scores have been slow but steady, except for the Friday just past, where I gleaned nothing from my usually reliable sources....it comes, and it goes....not pictured finds from the previous week are a splendid backpack to replace my 25 year old one that was literally falling to bits, and a chilly bin-or Esky, or cooler, depending where you are from.

I search high and low, seems my moon is traveling always

Yeah, it's all about the freshly washed hair....that needs a good henna-ing!
And yes, it's still windy, rubbish weather down here!
We are apparently due for some hail.
(you may detect a note of sarcasm)

Is that resting bitchface I see on dear wee Peepers?!
That might be because she's been locked out of the bedroom this week for being overly disruptive!
She's got the best poo face in the business!
