The golden orb hung pendulous....brooding...

Well, we didn't see a golden orb at all today!
It's been pissing down like a bastard!
There's been heavy rain and severe flooding in the upper North of the South Island, and I think that that weather has moved on down here.
I'm going out with Justine and an old mate of ours, Amy, to see Beastwars at the new Dux Live venue tonight, and it's gotten all cold, which doesn't bode well for the outfit I was planning to wear!
We've bought back all my stuff that was living in Justine's garage.
These are all my suitcases.
What's in them?!
Your guess is as good as mine!!!
I can't bloody remember, but it'll be clothes and clothes and stuff......
Y'know how it is!

The building site manager has been through this afternoon....and some things have to be redone.
Namely the plastering on our bedroom ceiling and the ceiling of what will be our new lounge.
And so it continues!

Time for a stiff vodka.

Frock and jacket-from the divinity that is Vix
Shoes-Trade Me
Habdbag-60's, opshopped

...and another stiff vodka!

Vix said...

I fecking hate rain. It's SLEETING here and digustingly cold, god knows what I'm supposed to wear later, the thought of practical shoes brings me out in a rash.
You look divine, I'd forgotten about that dress and it's beautiful on you. You look so sunny and bright and wonderful just looking at you will make everyone feel better.
Love you!

Sorry about the crappy storm coming your way and the re-do on the house. FUG Vodka for all. Bottoms up babe!

Dial V for Vintage said...

Enjoy your vodka, I'd say! I heard on the news about the flooding in New-Zealand (yep, even on the other side of the world it was a news item!), I hope you will be spared! It has been pooring rain over here too, and some nasty wind. I do not like it :(.

Mrs Munster said...

Who needs a sun when you are it such a warm colours and so radiant?

Sue, Joe and Michael Webber said...

The only 'orbs' around 'ere are pedulous pasty white ones needing to be be exposed to the Golden Orb! Nice to know that you travel light btw!! bahahah!

pastcaring said...

Well, the weather may be shite, the plastering may need redoing, but YOU, my darling, look pretty and colourful and gorgeous.
Hopefully the vodka and a night out with Joyful Justine has put the world to rights.
PS. LOOK at all those bloody suitcases! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Miss Peregrin said...

Not seeing much of the golden orb here this week either! Yellow is my fav colour at the moment, and you wear it so well. I'm totally jealous of the jacket, you gorgeous thing.
