It's all a blur......1 wine turned into 3, I think......
This is what I do remember :
Saying "yes, I'd love another wine, thanks!"
Discussing the merits of having a bar snack, ie: something fried, and deciding I would do a vege stir fry when we got home.
Shrieking hysterically whilst G dubbed me home on the back of the bicycle.
Suggesting we watch an episode of "Mad Men"(just got it out on DVD,loving it,don't understand why Peggy screwed Pete Campbell-que??!) and putting it on.
This is what I don't remember:
Chopping vegetables without cutting myself.
Cooking said vegetables without burning myself.
The opening of a bottle of wine.
Watching an episode of "Mad Men".
Going to bed.
o dear,o dear!
Old enought to know better, but young enough not to care!
more coffee required.

We call Wednesday "hump day". It's payday, which is always a good thing, but also the middle of the week, and once we are over the hump, it's just Thursday and then Friday 4 hours and the weekend!!!
Yes, people get quite jolly on Hump Day where I work!
Woke up to a bitter frost this morning. That'll be why I was stirred in the wee hours by Boris, nosing me to get under the duvet. I lifted the duvet up, and under he scooted. I was still half-asleep, and dozing off, when I suddenly realised I could smell cats arse. UGH!
The little toad had just gone in head first, and plopped, with his bum pointing at my face, and his tail flicking around my eyebrow, and I got a noseful of skanky cat bumhole. Most unpleasant.
Usually he turns around and snuggles up against my tummy. Maybe he was trying to make a point of some sort??? I have no idea, but I don't find that kind of carry on very conjusive to snuggling.
He got a good talking to this morning, I can tell you.

Thank you darling!
Sunday afternoon was spent with Justine, Mikel, and baby Rose. Justine helped me finish up a meal of Indian deliciousness! G and I had decided to push ourselves and cook a new recipe each. (Sorry, Vix darling, there was carnage involved)
G did a slow roast Indian style lamb, and I did a chicken tikka masala, and both dishes were scrumptious!!

Much whooping and a hollering, galloping around and laughing! Yay!
Jam Out with Your Can Out is a charity event organised by our Nix. 4 bands ,entry fee a can, or a blanket, donations accepted. Also a sausage sizzle, and all proceeds to the City Mission.
Anyhow, my darling friend Liz came along and helped out. We had a whole lotta fun, messing around with the supermarket carts full of cans.

Good morning all, here is my first ever video performance!!!
I hope it is audible enough, and that my makeup free face isn't too shocking!!!
It is a little out of synch, no idea what to do about that! I am completely new to this lark!!
I'm wearing my classy 70's housecoat I bought a while back, as I have literally just gotten had of bed, had a shower and washed my skanky hair, and dried it.
O,you lucky, lucky creatures! Not everyone gets to see Helga in the raw !!!

The hat is inspired by my beloved Vix . She wears a floppy hat so well!
Here is my next sewing project. I was given this fabric ages ago, and think I am finally ready to do something with it. This pattern is actually a maternity frock!! Ha! I have a bit of a pot, so it won't need much tweaking, I shouldn't think!!! Mostly the usual for it to fit the booboids. Not sure if I will make the maxi or the midi; probably the midi. Depends on how much fabric there is.
Awesome response to yesterdays post, lovelies. Poor old things we are!!! Y'know, I didn't start drinking until I was 22!! Of course, there were other things involved in my partying until then. I reckon it was my ex-husband who drove me to drink!!! And I've been beating my poor liver with a stick ever since! I have had phases of not drinking much, or at all, but lately I'm always in the mood to get good and sloshed. Perhaps I'm heading for a mid-life crisis?!
But further to one's loony youth-the risks I used to take! I am sooooo lucky to have never gotten into any real trouble! 9 lives, for sure! I'm definetly so much more cautious these days. Boring even. Am keen to revive a bit of my former adventurousness.......there are still fun times to be had, without behaving like a complete wanton nutter! Just a part one!!!
Yeah, better to burn out than to fade away!!!
