We're Gonna Party Like It's 1999


I had this post all scheduled, it's all set to go, but I just needed to pop in and say that we've had a series of really bad aftershocks here today, the worst being 5.5 and 6, we've been sent home to a fecking mess and my baby cats are missing.

I'm really worried about my babies.

We have no water, no power (again); I'm at Justine's popping this little edit in.

I'm having some straight vodka and I am really, really over this!!!

Friends and family, as far as we know, are fine.



A couple of hours later, I'm home from Justine's, we have power, my babies are back!!!

Pee Pee reeks of dirt, I think she must have been under the house.

I'm going to bed.

Enjoy these pix from the weekend.

Today is Justine's birthday!

We had drinkies at ours for her, as her house is just a little too small.

Pixie came down from Wellington, as did Justine's brother.

How's about my new turban!!!


I'm also wearing my new 70's bling!

The bling and the turban I found in a grotty looking opshop in Woolston, an older part of Christchurch.

With my new bling I have on a gorgeous pendant that my beloved Vix sent me, an a fave glamtastic 70's frock!

Justine's mantilla was a gift from Pixie.

Hot bint!

This is Justine's brother Glenn.

Mad as a hatter and twice the laughs!

With darling James!
He's such a love. He stayed the night and Harvey spent the night with him-ooooer!

O, we need a new name for Harvey, if you have any ideas.

So far we like Patsy and Possum. And El Bucho.

Fecking sexy biatch!!!

G tried to steal Justine's fluffy!

It's quite pimpy on him....mmmm

I love his "Rupert the Bear" ish pants!

They were a gift from a co-worker; they once belonged to her brother, and apparently there was a jacket, but her niece absconded with it.

Glad you're ok and that your babies are back. I'm so sick of f**king earthquakes. I suppose we won't be able to use the toilet again for weeks.
On a lighter note, I love your turban and G's trousers.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

Poor you guys!!! I don't know how you do it,, my nerves would NOT cope. You must be made from stronger stuff than me.
Glad to hear you're all safe and well. And I hope you haven't lost too many trinkets and treasures.

There is one particularly gorgeous photo of you and your friend.. a close-up. You should get that one blown up and plastered on the wall.

Those trousers of your bloke's are absolutely smashing.
Take care and kia kaha.

Miss Magpie said...

So glad to hear the kitties came home, poor things and that you guys are ok.

That turban is just mental!

Kitty said...

Oh poor you, when is this bloody earthquake shit going to end?! Seriously!

Glad the babies are okay!

Pixie is too beautiful for words as always and I LOVE the red mantilla! I'm wondering how old it is??

Pearl Westwood said...

Thank goodness you and your babies are all ok, I think vodka indeed is the only way to cope, my nerves would be frayed.
Your weekend photos are wonderful, so glad you safe xxx

LandGirl1980 said...

SO pleased that you are all ok. What the fook is going on man?? Mother nature needs to stop jigging her booty about! *sigh*

Poor furbabies - so please that they came back *big cheesy grin*

Hannah said...

Well I'm glad you are ok!
Any your wee kitties have returned!

Trees said...

I just heard on the radio this morning and thought of you. So glad you're all ok - and the cats are sfe - what an absolute nightmare, you really are a trooper. I definitely couldn't cope with that kind of thing. Hope there's not too much damage.

Fabulous picture of you and your friend in the blue stripes - hot mamas!

Calamity Jem said...

Dearest Helga,
I'm really relieved to hear that you guys are unscathed. I really feel for you's, it must be like the worst nightmare on repeat :(
Give yourself, G & the pussies a great big loving hug from Mark & I.
Take care lovely,
Jennie & Mark

Ronnie Rabbit said...

So glad you and your family are all safe, it must have been awful, I would be so scared. I am glad you all had another good evening, you all looked beautiful, and glad the kitties came home too.

Miss Peregrin said...

I am so happy that you & G & the babies are ok! I was worried about you as soon as my boyfriend told me there had been more quakes in Christchurch today.

On a lighter note, you guys all looked fabulous on the weekend. G's pants are smashing!

Max said...

Glad to hear your ok ands hope there is no serious wardrobe wreckage! That is a beaut photo with your mate and the red turban/dress combo is a beaut, you look like Liz Taylor in her prime!
If your into these kind of things I've nom-ed you for a "sunshine award" xxx

Rose&Bird said...

So glad to hear you guys are ok, I was only thinking of you last night (Sunday night). Clever Pee-Pee (even if she does smell now) to hide under the house - animals usually know better than us where it's safe.

Great pix, especially loving the turban x

Penny Dreadful said...

Poor pusskas, they must have been freaked. Glad they came back and everyone is ok xx

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh love, I am so relieved that you and all of your loves are ok - I bet those poor cats were just terrified - how awful! Give them an extra cuddle from me.

You look FABULOUS as always - and Pixie and Justine - actually the three of you are just so frickin beautiful I can't stand it!

Your new turban is bloody marvellous.

LOVEandNOmoreEarthquakes, Sarah xxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh - and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTINE ya big spunk!!! Can't wait to meet you!

Sarah xxx

VainGlorySinner said...

I'm so so so happy that you have the furbabies back! I would have been going out of my mind with worry!! Poor little things must have been terrified! Glad they're safe :)

I think Possum sounds great for Harvey!

You all look fab but I think G is the star of the show in Justines pimp daddy fur coat! Bless him!

Hope you're all well! xxx

Vintage Vixen said...

Thank god you're all safe! Bkloody bastard earthquakes, you need to move here.
You look sooooooo gorgeous,that turban and frock is splendid and the eyemake-up is beautiful.
G does look rather pimp-tastic in Justine's jacket. Hoorah.
Love you!

pastcaring said...

Hope there hasn't been too much damage, and so glad that everyone is safe, including the precious kits, of course.
You are looking mighty fine in your turban, birthday girl Justine and Pixie are equally beautiful, but my favourite photo has to be the dreamy one of you snuggling up to your lovely G - ahhh! makes me believe that romance can last!

La Dama said...

freaking earthquakes, I'm just so glad your okay amor.
I see you still rockin the night away,what an awesome turban, you look so madam X. all you look lovely,I adorar Justiness eyes.
yes, G man has pimp possibilities, all he needed was a big fur pimp hat and cadillac, rupert pants are so adorable.

Perdita said...

V glad to hear you, your folk and your kittehs are OK. Heard about the quakes on the news, was quite worried.

The turban rocks! Superb!

marga said...

It's the first time I comment on your blog although I read it every day. I like and laugh reading the posts and watching your pix...; but this morning I heard on the Spanish TV about the quake...so "Kie kaha".
I realised that Justine's wearing a "peineta" not a mantilla(a mantilla is the shawl worn over the peineta).
I hope you are ok. Regards from the Antipodes.

Bonnie said...

Hi Helga, can't believe you are still experiencing after shocks. It's horrible I know and I'm so happy your little fur babies are doing ok. I love the funky vibes your turban is sending out, I can feel it all the way over here! Looks like you all had a fun time and birthday felicitations to Justine...she has an awfully cute brother!

xoxo, Bonnie

ps- that Joan Crawford pic is frightening!

lady sélénite said...

I'm glad you're allright ! Your turban is great !

Anonymous said...

Phew - you're all OK! Was scared to scroll down and find out babies were still missing or worse. Hope everything settles down for good now.

E xx

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

OMG, those aftershocks keep coming. They sound awful but glad you got your babies back. Loooovvve the turban.

Rae said...

So glad you're ok - had to pop along to check on you as soon as I heard

And very glad your babies are home safe too

Loving your turban, tres glam

Mazzy Boy said...

Glad to know you're ok and that you're still rockin' the frocks! I am still on holiday but I will be thinking of you when I go op-shopping tomorrow! xoxoxo

Anonymous said...

Helga--it is such a relief to know that you and yours are ALL okay. If I had been living in Christchurch the past few months, it would be a steady diet of the hard stuff.

The turban looks beautiful on you.

delia hornbook said...
