Return to St Chads!

Bloody HELL!
So, we met the building site manager and the painter decorator this morning.
The builder dude was not too bad looking, ladies.
Not too bad at all. Hairy legs, though.
Like, really hairy.
Poor bastard is very sympathetic, as he lost his house in the quake.
Now that is bloody hard going.
But he was rather pleasantly pragmatic about it, a quality I admire.
Anyway, we had cleared out the front half of the house, as required....but now we have to have my room emptied by the end of the week!
FARK!
Well, we have a mission on our hands.
Thankfully I had made a small start and taken some lightweight stuff around to Justines over the weekend.
So I've been knee deep in it this afternoon.
There is so much (fabulous) stuff in there!
But I did find time to visit my darling kittehs, whom I hoped would be a little settled into their temporary home.
(We droppped them off this morning on the way to work)
Pee Pee was doing quite well, but Humpers gave me the most accusatory look I've ever experienced.
Ouch.
So I scarpered before I cried.
Again.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon we went to a 70th birthday party!
Cousin Phils Mama's birthday.
And it was at the St Chads hall, scene of the fair we went to just a couple of weeks ago!
Fancy that!
These next 5 pix really amuse me, as here I am, draping myself over a bench in a most becoming fashion, and Cousin Phil and G's eldest brother are just standing around, taking no notice whatsoever.
How very dare they?!
Thank goodness for safety pants!
I should perhaps create my own line; "Helga's Huggy Safety Pants"?!
Nor booze.
How unfortunate!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

What do you mean BECOMING? BEING!

Perdita said...

The drapery looks cool. Don't let the fella's lack of reaction put you off, they just know they can't compete.

We need some work done, it's the room emptying that puts me off! Especially as it would mean facing my nemisis the book case of doom...

Vix said...

Are those blokes mental? Why aren't they dry humping you?
I love you in black and those shoes blow my mind. They have red soles? Argghhhhhh!
Boo to uppity cats and places that don't serve booze.
Love you!
Vix

pastcaring said...

They've obviously seen it all before, if a flash of Helga's safety pants and wild Playboy posing doesn't get 'em going! I, on the other hand, am paying FULL attention!
Ooh Mrs, what would St Chad make of such hotness?
You look stunning. Of course. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

LandGirl1980 said...

Cock it. Vix stole my "dry humping" line. Bums.

I envy your bag. I do not envy your book choice. To The Lighthouse? EUGH. I am jaded - i had to study it at school and now regularly burn ramdom copies. By way of payback.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

I literally laughed outloud- Helga's Huggy Safety Pants? Order me up a pair!

You look wonderful, that frock is delicious as are those spectator shoes and that purse! An all around approved outfit. The bench poses on the other hand....


Give my love to your kittehs!

I think it's funny those two are just like...meh she's at it again, my family is the same way...that's when I usually try and dry hump them :) Love the shoes (nice job G and that belt from Vix with a lil bow so you!)

Sorry about this whole mess you are living with right now, you look FABULOUS AS EVER LOVE!!!

Vintage Coconut said...

You look so fabulous and if it wasn't for those safety pants... well this post might have been considered as some kind of porn! LOL

Hannah said...

I would most definitely buy your safety pants! you look delightful. Glad the builder is nice! x

Misfits Vintage said...

I would buy Lady Helga Safety Pants in a flash!!!

Those pics of you rolling aruond on the bench being compeltely ignored by those blokes are HILARIOUS!

I LOOOVE your gorgeous black dress - and those divine shoes are always a favourite. You look so beautiful.

LoveRollingAround! Sarah xxx

one denim bird said...

You put a smile on my face every day! I have been stalking you darling thru Sarah Misfits blog but thought I better "sign up" direct! silly me.

How could those boys ignore you! You were all over that bench :-)

Much fun to be had.

VainGlorySinner said...

Hahahaha! Those pictures are funny! It's become such a every day occurrence that they are now unaffected by your crazy draping/posing. It is rather saucy though!

Your shoes are f*cking gorgeous!!!!! I want to lick them!

The kitties will be perfectly fine but you will have your hands full when they get home! xxx

Louise said...

I LOVE these photographs. It seems to me they've all got a bit to used to your fabulousness... How rude! I NEED to find you a pair of union jack knickers like the one's Mrs. Slocombe wore in the 'are you being served' film. I'll make it my mission. Xx

Alex said...

Well how very dare they not pay any attention to you?!

I am madly out of the loop - first proper blog commenting session for about 6 weeks! What's going on with the house? Is it quake damage?

Kitty said...

ooh I LOVE that dress on you, and the OTK socks (knee highs??), so cute and very very slimming. P.S. when are you coming to visit ME????

Camelia Crinoline said...

I love that dress. We are all very appreciative of your posing skills even if Cousin Phil and G's brother aren't.

La Dama said...

I love you in black, you look appetitesing. You know i adorar your biatch self in black frocks too.How dare they?
They must be used to your hot porn posing. I always have an audience with buddy's family ,but back home my family are used to me posing. My dad always says your wearing that with a dress. No booze, how could that be?
Love the photo of you and g man snuggling while your bag is on the ground.
Luv ya loca

Vintage Sweetheart said...

How funny they have become used to your antics. I've got to get me some safety pants when a breeze comes up I always end up giving everyone a show!

Lena said...
