A Bonfire of the Winery

I started off the day a bit out of sorts.

But after lunch, I became quite perky.

An impending Easter break, probably because I'm not being Christian and therefore needing to be prayful, is really quite a pleasant thought.

I can just concentrate on loading up the liquor cabinet and think about hedonistic activities.

And acts of heathen depravity.

I've been frocked up in a slightly prissy manner in empathy, anyway.

I got this spotty frock at a garage sale, and I haven't worn it for ages.

This sweet pendant is rather special.

My Sarah gave it to me.

It's just like me, sweet, delicate, and elegant.


The kittehs had a bit of an extended outdoor adventure today.

Over fences and garage roofs. Rooves?

Dear Helga,
your hair looks like whips of fire, I love that colour & I also love it when you wear your gorgeous long hair down.
It's St. George's Day in England on Saturday and because the landlord of the pub I'm working at is 1. a complete St. George's day nut & 2. selling up in June, he's decided to celebrate it twice this year, on Thursday for all the regulars & city workers and then again on Saturday on the real Georgie Day....it's going to be a real ale, cockles & jellied eels infused bedlam!
Then we've got the wedding royale next weekend, gawd help us poor inner city bar workers ;)
That bag is rather splendid too by the way.
Take care luv,

Oh you gorgeous - you're in my post today (again!). Like Kitty, I ADORE you in black - I think you wear it so well because of your glorious hair. I look a bit Elvira with too much black I'm afraid. I love your frock too.

That second pic made me giggle - did you just lay your bag, like an egg? You ARE bloody exquisitely sweet, delicate, elegant and sparkly!
