It's been a grey old day, and now it's raining.
But I managed to get G to take an outfit pic for me before he left work early for his drum lesson, and before the rain started.
Frock-gifted from Sarah , who was smokin' hot today in her high waisted pants and awesome tie!
Necklace-gifted from my beloved Vix , whose return from India is eagerly awaited by all of us!

Last night I made this fabulous Thai red fish/veg curry, and we watched a quirky film, "The Brothers Bloom". I enjoyed the female characters best, played by Rinko Kikuchi and Rachel Weisz; I think their characters totally made the film. Especially Rinko!! Her character was sooo cute! The blokes, played Adrian Brody and Mark Ruffalo, didn't really rock my world. Mark Ruffalo is rather delicious, however, and I'm quite into Adrian's nose.
Anyway. Regarding my little rant about We Love Colours tights yesterday, I should have checked my facts before I blithered.....luckily Franca 's (linked to her looking mega hot) comment about her experiences with We Love Colours, caused me to realise that I hadn't properly checked my facts before opening my trap! I popped over to their sight to check out what I had ordered, and I had ordered the biggest in their standard sizes, which is M/L, not extra large as I had thought. (Probably cos I get extra large in everything!) The weight bracket for their M/L is 135-168 pounds, height 5'5"-5' 11". I am 5' 4 1/2" and 167.55 pounds (76 kilos), so I'm right at the extreme of that. But it never occurred to me that I should have bought the plus size! So, to be fair, I should give them another chance sometime, and try the plus size. I wear the crutch hugging skimming ones with step ins to hold them up, as the colours are too fab to throw away or cut up for other purposes. I am still peeved though about them being so small. Meep.
Good to see that I am not the only one who has tight sizing issues, though! I mostly buy an NZ brand called Columbine, who do some ok colours and patterns and fit me really well. Stick to what you know, I guess! The tights I'm wearing today are very comfy, by the way!
The kittehs are acting crazy and adorable-I just want to gobble them up-and we have Gillian coming to stay for a couple of nights. She's doing some final shooting for her documentary on Rutherford (the dude who split the atom) in the only oldish part of the city still standing, and it's easier for her to stay here than go home to Loburn with the long hours.
She'll be arriving shortly, and I want to have a cup of tea and some dinner waiting for her!
I'm making sweet and sour veges and rice.
Chop chop chopping awaits!
