Sometimes I can be a real arse.
And I wonder how the hell G manages to deal with me.
He's a good boy!
After work, G took me over to my fave opshop for a little nosey.
I found a project book for Sarah and I to work on when we are at her house in less than 80 sleeps!
And a few other goodies!
A rather nice, if undateable (to me) coat, a fab polyester pussybow blouse, an addition to our glass bottle collection and the most divine book about Princess Margaret that I actually got palpitations over!
Blouse label whore details!
A little shot of the coat; the buttons are a late addition, I suspect, and they are about booboid level.
Love the lining!
Just look at this gorgeous cover!
Love what the Queen Mum is wearing!
Anyways, this is where the chimney used to be!
The builders have this afternoon lined this out, and in the future this room, the former lounge room, will be my sewing/dressing room.
And this alcove will be for storage!
I'm excited about that!
The reason I am an arse is that I was having a bit of a meep when I was boxing up stuff in my sewing/dressing room when we got home today.
It's such a big job!
I've been at it all week, but really haven't got much achieved.
It's all got to be out by Monday.
I really have nothing to complain about, however.
An entire suburb of Christchurch has been pretty much written off today.
G sent me out for the afternoon.
"Go out to Rangoon", he said!
"Visit the Squirrels", he said!
So I did.
I found the most lovely necklace and a scrumptious hat!
And having a chat with the gorgeous twosome of Vanessa and Warren, the Two Squirrels themselves, hearing about their difficulties since the quake (they lost both their vintage shops in the quakes), well......I found my perspective to be sharpened somewhat.

Handbag-vintage Rex, now falling apart!
Now, our Dave K is over and we are concentrating on drinking vodka and listening to The Kills.....it's going to degenerate, I suspect.
Gawd, and I need to be a bit clear headed tomorrow whilst we move all the furniture out of my room!
What the hell, lets live a little!
