It's all about just getting on with it.

We had a very.......interesting Saturday.

Some emotional upheaval around us, but we did our best to sit within the eye of the storm.

We decided to go out for a breather and have lunch at the Speights Ale House.

On Richmond Green there is a circus!

The Aotearoa Circus, in fact.

We've decided to go next week with Justine, Baby Rose and our friend Dave.

I have never been to a circus!

My frock is crimplene joy and I got it in Wellington in January. It's taken me this long to take it in and up!

My coat is 50's, and was a gift from a friend who moved to Brisbane. It's fecking snuggly!

My attempt at "hair of the dog".

It sort of helped.

G ordered the seafood chowder.

Sadly, it wasn't as good as it could have been.

I had lamb vindaloo, and it was fantastic!

Hot enough to make me tingle, which isn't easy to do!

Hope you've all been having splendid weekends!

I love you in color and color sure loves you! What a wonderful frock- the tights and shoes and coat don't hurt either.

Whenever I see pics of you and alcohol, I want to go drinking with you- maybe I'll turn this into a drinking game. Cheers!

Trees said...

Yah!! Green tights!!

Looking forward to tales from the circus:D

Sharon said...

I just love the colour of your new dress ~ such a fantastic shade of green and it really suits you!

Despite the emotional upheaval you manage to look completely gorgeous. I'll bet the locals can't wait to see what you're wearing each day - you never fail to make me smile. I'm gasping at the splendid shades of green with that fekking awesome coat and bag!!! I hope things settle down around you - give your pussies a stroke - always a pleasure;)) xoxoxo

You looking good for someone who wasnt feeling too good must have been all the green you had on.

Love your mirror - hope it tells you you're the fairest of them all!

Haven't been to the circus for years, will have to hunt one out...

Miss Peregrin said...

Green is such a good colour for you! I love those tights, they're such a vibrant colour. That coat was certainly a score as well!

Lady Cherry said...

I love that first photo of you in the mirror. I have never been to a circus either, but really want to since seeing Water for Elephants!

Misfits Vintage said...

You look beautiful, as always, in your amazing frock, amor! I cannot tell you how much I adore your coat - it's EXQUISITE! Are they your new shoes? They look FAB.

Vintage Vixen said...

You do look gorgeous despite the emotional upheaveal. The best attitude is definitely to keep calm and carry on (and carry on in fabulousness). That vindaloo looks divine, shame about poor G's food!
Love you!

Vintage Coconut said...

There you are all dolled up in my favorite color. *Meeeeeooooowww*

That seafood chowder LOOKED delicious.. too bad it was not as good as it could have been.

pastcaring said...

You do look fabulous in green, a classic combination with red hair, of course.
Hope the circus cheered you up and provided a distraction from tricky emotional territory. I too find clowns spooky and not at all funny, so hope they weren't too freaky!

Loving the green. Hope the emotional upheaval sorts itself out.

I love circuses! In fact...back in the day...I would have been a tattoo'd lady in a freak show for sure. :) You look simply splendid in green. Hearts, Janna Lynn

Mazzy Boy said...

Helloooooo Auntie!

Looking gorgeous and fabulous as ever.

It is awfully hard to make a decent seafood chowder with flavour...(yeah yeah, whatever! It can't be that hard! I bet they didn't put enough love in the recipe!)

You look so pretty all dolled up for your show...and it is always nice seeing you with a bottle in your hand...nothing like a dame who can hold her liquor with such style! xoxoxo

Ofelia said...

You look fabulous in your green dress and your green tights. They match so perfectly!
