On Sunday I did a quick grocery run before settling into a lovely afternoon with the sun streaming into the house, a book, and a few glasses of vodka and raspberry juice........mmmmmmmm...
At the supermarket I came across the most splendid looking older lady with a big blonde bouffant hairdo, rings fairly dripping off her fingers and dressed to the hilt!
I stopped in my tracks to exclaim over her just as she caught sight of me, and we swapped praise and admiration over our mutual glory......feck I love to see women making an effort (well, any woman, really!) and looking glamourous, even if only for the groceries!
My Mama certainly never left the house without her lipstick on, and I do my best to uphold her standards.
(note; in my best supercilious tone)
Frock-made by moi using a curtain and a 50's pattern from the divoon Vix (it was actually the toile, but despite not quite fitting right, I bloody wear it rather than waste it!)

Almost an arse shot; I expect he's a little more dignified than Peepers.
As am I, clearly.
The blossoms are out in abundance, and G and I stopped on the way home from work to try and capture their beauty....didn't quite manage it, but you get the idea...
Here's a bonus pic of my baby Peepers reveling in the comfort of the couch.
The little cutie!
