Apparently I was frocked up rather spectacularly for our last day of work for the year...although I thought I was looking fairly casual?!
I am frequently over dressed, true....maybe it was the flashy gold trim and speckles in the fabric (that the pix don't show, sadly) of this scrummy square dance frock that tipped it into a more festive affair...
Who knows, it was nice to end the working year with a pile of compliments.

I've re-organised my shoe crates, as they were bloody annoying to get into!
Front left is a divoon ensemble my lucious sistercousinwife Sarah sent me!
It's silver and white, and kind of faux (FAUX!!) lacey, not that you can really tell.......
A long time friend of G's popped his head in here the other day and pronounced that I am out of control!
What is he talking about?!
G and I had a date night-we went to see The Hobbit, The Desolation of Smaug in 3D....it was my first experience with 3 D, and frankly, I didn't think it was especially interesting. If anything, it gave the film a bit of a cheap sitcom look.
Yes, we are Lord of the Rings fans, and we're thrilled to bits about The Hobbit films!
Especially as Richard Armitage is fecking delicious, and that mighty fine Lee Pace has turned up in the this one as the Elf King!!!
I wouldn't mind being the meat in their sandwich!
Just add the voice of Smaug (OMG, Benedict Cumberpatch!) and I might just explode!
Frock-square dance! Retropolitan

This house, just up the road from us, has the sled up all year round.
We've been waiting for them to put a Santa up, but they've just shoved a pile of other stuff up instead, including an enormous wreath.
If they had a Santa, I would be tempted to see if they'd let me climb up and perform acts of heathen depravity with him for your viewing pleasure.
It's all a bit mental!
And there's lights!
I'm not convinced.
It's (supposed to be) Summer (it's actually been quite chilly on and off!), what has snow, reindeer and a sled got to do with the season?!
I think there is a good argument for moving the Christmas thing to June in the Southern Hemisphere.
I might actually enjoy it and embrace it in the middle of Winter!
