It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window.
Ok, so I didn't turn out as blonde as I wanted and had promised you
I arrived home on Friday to find a parcel of joy from the gorgeous Curtise
It contained 3 dresses and two of which even fit me and a piece of Midwinter Lorna Doone!
Well, I'm a bit blonder aren't I?!
Here's the gorgeous little bowl she sent me
and a postcard, I'll be using Arsetral cream for my chapped bits
On Saturday I got two more parcels, one from ebay....
I mentioned that I'd won this dress weeks ago and had been waiting for it to arrive from France for ages!
Also lovely Wendy from The Butterfly Balcony
sent me the same material from a beautiful dirndl skirt she'd made so I could have a go at making my own!
Such amazing material!
On Saturday afternoon Lisa (see her version on her blog) invited me to a "fashion exclusive" held by the local shopping centre, we were given goodie bags and bubbly, then given ring side seats to a fashion show. We were given style advice by the lady wot tells you what to wear on "This Morning"
It wasn't bad stuff, even though I was told I could find "something for all sizes and budgets" in House Of Fraser - I've only bought one pair of jeans there in 4 years of it opening due to everything being to small or expensive.
And also being shown a handbag and told it was a bargain (it was £16, I could hear Vix and Curtise laughing)
I was also surprised and a little embarrassed to discover that models now dance on the catwalk
"yah instead of going in to PR I went travelling to Bali and I was like oh my god I want to make jewellery just like they do but for 10 times the price" - said Chloe from Chlobo (2nd from right)
I like the presenter's hair and her bored expressions
It was quite a busy day, the dogs had a hair cut...
He's much smarter and cooler now!
Hanging out the washing.
I went for a walked dress like this
I'm going camping on Friday for a week so I'll have to carefully plan what to pack and following
Finger's crossed the weather will be just a little bit nice like it has been all this week
