Getting creative with whatever I could find, which was quite a bit.
As Major General Helga, I reported for digging duty around at Miriam and Jon's.
They have a lot of "liquifaction"; silty sand stuff, about a foot deep, in their yard.
This is where their garage stood!
Daz, right, is being his usual disgraceful self!!
Our lovely Dave came over in the afternoon.
G is showing him a cheesy pic of he and I from the cruise, that the in laws bought and had framed for us.
G was telling a story, I can't remember what it was about, sorry.
We had a great jam.
We were totally plastered!
I even had a bash at the drums!

Ha, I started this post last night, and I was totally pissed.
I have no idea how I managed to load these few photos, but I remember struggling to type with any co-herence.
Then G put me to bed.
So I've cleared what I started typing, cos it was pretty obvious I was off my head!!!
Let's start again!
Above is what I wore to pop into town with Justine.
Frock-my beloved Vix
Long waistcoat-60's or 70's? I reckon it would have had matching pants originally. Opshopped
We had a rummage at Toffs, a splendid secondhand establishment in the city.
Big selection, moderate to pricey; I almost always find something.
I got Justine to try a couple of fab numbers, one of which was a divine 50's lurex frock and matching bolero in a scrummy shade of pink. Damn thing didn't fit her booboids. Then we got her into a gorgeous maxi, black with gold braid. I loved it, but she's not really a retro girl, and wasn't quite comfy with it. She did score a pair of shoes, and a handbag for Pixie, so she was happy.
O, I managed my first reverse parallel park in the new car!!!
I had a good bit of help from Justine, and we nailed it!
I was very proud, and texted G immediately!!!
I found this divine scarf ring at Toffs.
The purple ring I'm wearing is one of the selection Kitty sent me a while back.
I don't look after my fingernails at all...which you've probably noticed!
I bought this tutu for Baby Rose.
It's supposed to be for a 6 year old, but I reckon she'll be in it in a couple of years!
My other rings are courtesy of,

We had a lovely coffee, went and checked out the Red Cross shop, where Justine got Mikel a splendid suit jacket, and also looked at The Emporium, a newish shop specialising in retro & vintage imported from the States. It's not particularly exciting, and is over-priced, as you can imagine. Still, it sort of brings vintage to the masses, so good on them. Then we went and did some groceries. Justine said that she loves how I get lots of smiles wherever we go. I hadn't noticed! Apparently I was getting admiring and amused looks!
How very satisfying!!
I never take any notice of people when I'm out!!
It was a jolly good afternoon.
Tomorrow I will post what I wore Saturday night.....which of my new shoes do you think I wore?

Anyhow, at lunchtime I needed an opshop fix, so I zoomed over to my favourite opshop, which is luckily quite close to work, and picked up a few goodies.
I was in the mood for some sewing supplies, so was pleased to get some ribbon, thread, and some dear wee old packets of bias-binding.
Plus a scarf, some pretty, but odd, gloves, and a woolly thingy. It's kinda like a small cape. And a tiny wee butterfly that seems to be broken off something, like a ring, maybe.
Just look at the darling packaging on the bias binding.
Tui brand is soooo Kiwi. They're a gorgeous bird, too, with a beautiful call.
Local binding for local people.
Frock-made by me out of retro, opshopped material
We're popping out to the Dux tonight for a few drinkies for Nancy's birthday.
I could really do with getting a bit wankered.
I'm in the moooooooood.
I really, really want to come to the UK!!!
It's just not within my means right now!
From the other side of the world, where we are, it is ridiculously expensive!

My 3 contributions to Sexcapades were:
Pamela Anderson-but her boobs explode

Eels with nasty, sharp, pointy teeth etc....
