Awesome Dunny, aka Latrine Love

We ended up having a bit of a bender/sleepover with a few friends last night.
It was quite cathartic.
Nothing like a good bashing around in the music room, fueled by a lot of tequila and beer.
I did get dressed up, and made a start on tidying my room!
I'm wearing:
Frock-made by moi years ago
Cardi-opshopped long ago and dyed by moi
Bow-made by moi from opshopped ribbon
Necklace-gift from G's Mama, bought in Singapore
Earrings-on sale at some jewellery & accessories chain store, I forget which one.

Note safety pants.
Anyway, below is the main point of this post; to show off G's handiwork!
As we have no water (we do have drinking water, don't worry), he's had to create us an outdoor loo, aka The Awesome Dunny.
Sorry, darlings, but you'll have to turn your computer screen sideways!
G forgot that our camera only films one way!!!

We've been at G's brother's this afternoon, for lunch with the family. They've got water, so we've had showers and feel most refreshed!

I loved this! Hoorah for G!He is a G-nuis!!!!
It'll be like a week at Glastonbury, get drunk and just keep slapping on the warpaint and fab clothes and you won't even notice.
Loving the look of those "safety pants".
Love you!

LOL would feel like your camping I bet But I would still need some walls or it would feel like one of my dreams where there are no walls when I need them lol

Brumby said...

We just got water on - thankfully out long drop will no longer be required, it was no where near as dignified as yours! thanks for letting me know about Brodie, relieved she is okay!

great idea!

VainGlorySinner said...

Hahaha I love that out door loo! It's all private with it's own fence.

I am in awe of you brightly coloured house! Amaazing! It kind of reminds me of my favourite childhood TV show - Wizadora!

The yellow cardigan is lovely and the earrings and necklace seem like a matching set even though they're not!

I hope you get some water soon! xxx

Rose&Bird said...

You must be very proud! All it needs is a few kitsch ornaments and you're dun(ny)! Seriously though, I hope you get water back soon x

You can pants if you want to
You can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't pants
And if they don't pants
Well, they're no friends of mine
Safety Pants
Safety Pants!

Oh I LOVE that yellow crocheted cardi - aren't you clever!

And I LOVE Safety Pants so much I am going to sing the Safety Pants song for the entire weekend!

Clever G, making a loo - what an ingenious chap he is!

Make do and mend at its finest!

It's great to hear from you doll. I'm so happy that you only suffered small mishaps. I spoke with a woman from NZ the other day and her house was completely destroyed. Her children have nowhere to live. The earliest flight she could get is next Thursday. In Japan the are quite a few people from NZ so they're all trying to get back home to their families. Keep your spirits up, you're sunshine on a cloudy day.

You look amazing as always & buttloads of fun. I think I have your address saved somewhere but can you email it to me so I can send you out my mixed cd this morning.

Ivy Black said...

You and G are indomitable! I think your good humor overcomes most any setback.

Hello dear fellow Minx Helga!
I'm SO glad to know everything's okay at your side besides some mess (which will allow you to rediscover the amazing stuff you have!). Was thinking of you when news of the quakes hit but saw on other sites that you're fine! Finally I'm stopping by here and absolutely amazed by your ingenuity and your positive energy! Stay cheerful xxx

That's the spirit! Safety pants...lmao!!!!

Perdita said...

Wow you flexy sexy lady! Top high-kick in those safety pants!

Love the outside loo. My ex had an outside loo just regular like, strange for England. Possibly why he's an ex- nothing sets up a classy intimiate date like taking a torch out to the toilet on a rainy evening.

Miss Claire said...

Haha, very clever G! You are charming :) x

Mrs Cleaver said...
