Happy Chickens

I managed to recover sufficently from my Friday night out to go to our gorgeous Liz' hens party on Saturday afternoon.
With a little hair of the dog, that is!
My damn camera was causing me a little grief on Friday.....and on Saturday, even more so.
I don't know what is wrong with it, but G took quite a few shots before I went out, and I took loads at Liz', but very few are actually useable!
Looks like I might have to get a new camera.
Liz has the most delightful, soft pillows for lips!
I wore:
Frock-Repertory Theatre sale
Coat-70's, gift from Justine
Hat-40's, Etsy
Wrap cardi-opshopped
Belt, just seen-from the divine Vix
Sunglasses-vintage Orotons, from fabulous Sarah
Necklaces-Swordish eye pendant form The Mermaid Collective, many years ago, and the other necklace is from the Shabby Chic Market
Earrings-from my lovely friend Nicole, from one of the Stans
Shoes, barely seen-retail

It was a jolly wonderful afternoon/evening, and I was home in time for a Midsomer Murder and in bed by 9pm!
Rock on!
I do wonder how the rest of their night was....there were plans afoot to go to a band, but I just couldn't manage it!

Sunday was laden with visitors!
Our mate Maria popped around; she and I got off our tits in the backyard for a few hours!
Then one of G's brothers and his wife popped in!
Then his other brother, wife and kids popped in!!!
It was all go and a bit hazy!
Back at work today for a rest!
Note to self: hide the vodka for a few days!

A big plus is that we got a new mattress delivered on Friday afternoon, so we set up our bed in the band room, and have 2 nights of splendid, snuggly, restful sleep!
I just need a bit more of it!
And I need the weather to warm up a bit!
It's been most unseasonably cold here!

pastcaring said...

Oh my word, you look MAGNIFICENT! A little bit like a Madam of a high class establishment of ill-repute. I think you know I mean that in a GOOD way!
Hat! Frock! Jewels! Coat! Poses!

Miss Rayne said...

love that hat and frock, I can see that frock on the soprano at an am-dram do, but she wouldn;t wear it as well as you do.

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

You look AMAZING. I want to marry that hat.

Hannah said...

Oh that is fabulous, you look brilliant, I am knackered from wrapping presents, now that is rock n roll x

Ofelia said...

You look like a baroness with all the necklaces and that lovely coat!
I hope it gets warmer soon; we are having 77-82 degree weather and a lot of people are complaining about it.
Which its ridiculous because this is the reason why we live in Florida!

Thank freakin God for Helga von Trollops shenanigans!!!

My life seems so awfuly dull and boring in comparison, but alas, when I switch on me computer everyday and scroll through your delightful photos and larf-a-minute rendition of the night before I smile and think of England! NOT, infact I chuckle hysterically and think of all the drunkin floozing I did before children!

Thank you Helga the Great! You remind me daily of who I really am!!

I feel your pain, I've had my fill of booze and am looking forward to tea and an early night today.
That is one classy frock and coat, you look beautiful and the jewellery is spectacular.
Keep warm and enjoy that new mattress.
Love you!

Perdita said...

Wowzers, that frock! You look like a bohemian fiesty female lead in a rollicking wild west movie. I imagine a mother of pearl pistol hidden in your bosom with which to save the day!

Allo Lovely Helga!

Thanks for your comments, always looking forward to them- you look delicious as alwways - i adore your hat, the gorgeous coat and the pink dress is spectacular!

About me, yes i guess my poor body is at the end of its rope, need rest - oh well my sick leave is extended until the end of feb, will have plenty of time to recuperate. Christmas will be quiet this year, do not need any booze, got narcotics that will do the trick, ha! ha! ha!

Lots of love

Ber-loody hell! Is that you recovering from a hangover? Never!!! You look waaaaaaaaaaaay too gloriously gorgeous in your amaze-balls pink frock and coat!!! I have necklace and beret-with-rose LUST. Too, too gorgeous - yeah I'd be piling over to your place to join the instant-party couple too! Nothing like a new mattress and a jolly good British murder though:)))) xoxoxoxoxoxoox
