Despite this sunny, bright yellow outlook, it's been a dull grey few days down here!
Nothing that Frock Friday and a glass of wine can't help, however!
Being Friday, I finish at 11am and run errands so I have my weekend free.
Poor old G Star has been off sick* all week, so I've been generally going solo and feeling sad and lonely, o woe is ME.
Ah, yes, and grumpy as a troll** too.
(*Throat infection, probably viral, he's a lot better now!)
(**Are trolls in fact genetically pre-dispositioned to be grumpy?! Hmmm.)
We had planned on going out to our friends Gill and Wayne's in Okuku tonight, but G is not quite bright enough, so we're going to have a quiet one and watch a couple of ....well, knowing me, one, dvd's.
I made him a splendid mushroom soup for lunch and free range chicken enchiladas for dinner, and right now our drummer, Jeff, is here....and he is the one who produced the pink vomit after the tequila sunrise frenzy last Saturday night, not G, as may have been assumed!!!
She's such a whore!
We have spent the afternoon covering the seats of 4 dining chairs with some fabulous fabric and also making a start on the loungeroom curtains....
I think Humpers approves of our Mexicana styley chairs!
We have 4 of these chairs; G scored them from an antique shop about 10 years ago.
We have a few other nice, odd chairs out in the shed that we need to tidy up.
We like to be able to sit up to at least 8 for a dinner party, but prefer just 6, as a rule!
It's been a while since we had a dinner party.
It's one of our favourite things to do!
And this is one of the two curtains required for the lounge alcove...
Now I think we need to paint the "roof" of it orange...it looks a little odd being white!
What do you think?
I think I am feeling rather sozzled after quite a bit of red wine.

O, G said, after yesterday's post, that he thought "Wild at Heart" was my favourite Lynch film, not "Lost Highway"!
Actually, I think he's right!
But to make sure, we've decided we'll have to have a Lynch festival one of these weekends!!
