I can barely summon the energy,but....

...but I wanted to share what we have been up to.....

Like going into town for dinner............

....and posing in a phone box in:

Frock-made by moi




Handbag-garage sale

Necklace-made by moi from bits

Earrings-gift from G

"Pearl" cocktail ring from my darling Vix

I was thinking of you, Kitty , whilst dressing, as you have sweetly said you like me in black!

....drinking wine....

...eating a fabulous Thai meal...not at our favourite, though. It was closed, but the Thai Smile came up trumps.

....having some drinkies at Fat Eddies.......

...watching Ralph suck down his "sloe gay ginge" cocktail....

....whilst G told an exciting story...

...Ralph and I went out for brunch this morning....

I'm wearing my 50's frock from Madame Butterfly's.

Then over to Jo's for a bbq/garden party.
Jo is wearing her Joan of Holloways frock and looking gorgeous!

I looove Helen's frock!

Gilbert is playing with Jo's kitten, Argenta.
It's all been rather fun although I'm bloody knackered!!!
Hopefully I haven't killed my liver...
We dropped Ralph off at the airport an hour ago, it's been a blast (as always) spending time with him! We'll see him again at the end of January, when we finally go up to Wellington for the weekend!
Love you, Ralphie!

Bloody Hell, Luve, you sure know how to live it up. All those delish dinners, fab friends and so many gorgeous frocks.
That Thai food looks yummy, no chance of any of that round this cultural wasteland.
I adore you in black, but there again I aore you in anything, you fabulous beast.
Loads of love and fun in 2011 to you and G from me, Jon and the furballs.

Kitty said...

Fantabulous outfit my dear, and that was what I thought BEFORE I saw that you'd mentioned me! Yes I really do think you look fantastic in black, although I kind of wish you'd stop showing so much fab food, because now I NEED to walk to the end of my road for some Thai...even though I'm really buggered from doing the markets today. Oh and that Ralph is rather nice, isn't he??

Mrs Munster said...

Great outfits. You seem to also have very well dressed friends. This post also made me VERY hungry. Luckily I've got Chinese foodstravaganza waiting in few hours time!

Misfits Vintage said...

Right, that's it - I AM MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND - I want what you're having!

I love: * All of your frocks - especially the 1950s floral * Your pearl cocktail ring * The Joan of Holloway red and white polka dot frock * Your friend's haircut! * Your other friend's green paisley frock * G's storytelling expression *The Dr Who phone booth!

Happy Gorgeous Frickin Fabulous New Year Lady Helga - you rock my world!

Perdita said...

What a perfect weekend! That Tahi food does look delicious, might have to convince his Lordship to take me for Thai tonight! ;)

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

OK that yellow dress has to be my all-time favourite - you look utterly delicious you gorgeously spunky woman!!! I love how you're always doing something with your hair and your tattoo (plus your work in progress) is making me rethink not getting one - such beautiful artwork:)))). Now you've got me hungry for Thai - but it's 11.30pm!! xoxo

Well colour me thoroughly green with envy. I've turned into a food scavenging monster over the holidays and all those delicious food photos have made me so so hungry! Grrrr.

The ring is gorgeous too (so hard to find nice pearl rings) and I love G's fab shirt.

Happy New Year lovely xxxxxx
