The Baby Eating Bishop of Bath and Wells has nothing to do with this post


We went out for a family lunch today at a Chinese restaurant.
Quite the civilised thing to do on a Sunday afternoon!


These are my fabulous new 70's sunglasses I got whilst we were in Australia!
So glamourous!


Frock-70's, opshopped
Coat-60's, Rangoon Musical Society sale
Cardi-opshopped
Belt-opshopped in Australia
Fishnets-not sure!
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped
Earrings-birthday gift from The Stylist
Necklace-gorgeous Krista


Behind us is The Theosophy Society building, which appears to be munted from the earthquakes.
Poo! It's got a Georgian flavour that I quite like.
O well.


G is wearing:
Jacket-gift from Sarah
Top-60's, opshopped
Jeans-retail
Shoes-retail
Sex appeal-all his own!


G has been working like demon spawn in the band room, ripping out all the lathe and plaster in a rather manly fashion!
It's a big job!
The intention is to make this room as sound proof as possible.
Of course I had to prance around in there a bit before we went out!


We rolled home feeling rather stuffed and then prostrated ourselves on the couch with the cats to watch Blackadder repeats.
Generally I find Chinese food rather appalling in Christchurch, but this is the second Chinese restaurant we've been to in the last year or so that has been really good.
Things are looking up!

"He christens babies in the morning then eats them in the vestry for breakfast" - hahaha!!!!!!!!! Oooh I do love the horrid, slobbering ole' Bish - "poisoned by god!!" "No, by Baldrick actually but the effect is much the same". STOP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love how you put wicked ideas, songs, lines from tv shows, in my head then I spend all day ranting like a lunatic and everyone thinks I gone mad, mad I say!! And I am going completely gaga for all the insane green touches ("My lord we have discovered the secret to turning base objects into gold!" "Percy, it's GREEN.") There I go again, it's the fecktaculous green sunnies with The Stylist's earrings and tights - you are doing it for me today baby!!! Ooooh I do like a bit of manly banging and wrenching around the house ... ooh err!!!!! xoxoxo

Those glasses are rather amazing. Nothing makes a girl feel more glamourous than sunglasses that are half the size of her head. I'm not usually a fan of pink but you make it look fabulous. I like G's orange sneakers.

Sue W @ Living the Good Life said...

Is our G going to be making regular appearances? :D ♥ Oh you comely wench, look at those magnificent bazookahs! One could get lost in those! ♥

two squirrels said...

Oh I just knew that dress was going to look fabulous on you when you showed the seeky peeky the other day!!!!
Perfect with green, always.
Mr G loving the highlights of orange in your handsome outfit.
Yay to the band room!
Love v

Hannah said...

Love the dress! and that building is rather nice. I do not know of any decent Chinese places near me, which is a crying shame as I love food x

Sue said...

So pretty in pink!!

Trees said...

Your sunnies are epic and it looks like another beautiful day in Chch ^^

I am often not a Chinese food - when its good, its amazing, but so often in NZ its so so bad :P

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

Pink polkas and green - gotta be one of the best combos ever!

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Yup, I think pink and green is my new favourite colour combo. Delish sunnies.

Vintage Sweetheart said...

Pink polka dots what could be better?? Those sunnies are so glamourpuss. xx

Straight Talking Mama! said...

I love pink and green, yay to colour. Also love those rather fabulous sunglasses!

delia hornbook said...

Ronnie (RR) said...

Loving the green and pink together. So glad you found a nice chinese restaurant you like. The building works coming along really well, am sure you'll be singing in there in no time at all.

Perdita said...

That colour combination works fantastically!

Melanie said...

What a delicious colour combination! I shall have to remember that!

pastcaring said...

Oh you look like a delicious sundae of a woman in your pink and pistachio combination - genius! And those sunnies are wondrous.
How nice to have a manly man sweating and heaving about the place, all in the name of home improvements - well done G! Do you think he's channelling Vanessa's Warren at the minute, with his new(ish) facial hair? Looking mighty fine!
The baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells makes regular appearances in our conversations too, much to the mystification of the kids. They'll learn! xxxxxx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Look at your gorgeous locks! I don't think I've seen them flowing like that before! You're a confection in pink and green. I love your marshamllow jacket and pink handbag. Can you tell it's getting close to lunch? mmmmm Chinese. Or a nugget of the purest green, whichever

Kitty said...

Yikes, the G-man is more than living up to his name with all that MANLY work-so impressive!!!

I'm loving those green glasses too!

Pennyblossoms said...

Pink and limey green, a match made in Heaven! Well, you'd gone all bishop-y on us, how could I resist!

Vix said...

G's all manly and you're all girly and delicious in your pink and green confection! How fabulous do you look in those HUGE sunnies??? Phwoar! Loving the pink lippie too.

Adorable polka-dot dress! xxx

Krista said...

Ah sweet Helga a vision in pink and green! I don't know what I love most about the outfit the dress or the purse, or the sunnies oh heck I love it all! G's orange shoes are killer and he is certainly going to town on your music room. I love you both more than Chinese!

Ivy Black said...

Looking stunning, girl! Ah, Blackadder...makes you laugh 'til you pee!xxx

Louise said...

I nearly howled when I saw your title. My Mum is a mega Blackadder fan, and the Baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells is one of her fave episodes... subseqently I've seen it lots. 'He must be a colossal pervert' Blackadder has to be one of the best series ever... I love the Flashard ones... Woof! I love those sunglasses. xx

Terri said...

The purse is perfect with this dress and the color of the fishnets...is out of this world. G. is looking stylish, like something out of Braveheart, in spite of all that nasty construction work.

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

I love all of the colors together! Reminds me of spring :) can't wait til its warm again. xoxo

Vintage Coconut said...

My GOD you and G make a delicious couple.
