hello..hello I am still here! I really do not know where the time has gone this month, I'm all of a dither with one thing and another, lots to sew,lots to say and no time for either! Thanks for all your messages and emails..you are all LOVELY !x
At some point I will get round to saying hello to everyone again old and new.
I have to ask..did you see Time warp wives on channel 4 last Friday?
Many moons ago in a galaxy far far away, I used to know Jo..the girlie in the picture above with the gorgeous figure who looks no different now to how she did back in the early 90's (apart from her hair was black back then) I do believe she now goes under the name Lola Lamour who sang at the 40s dance that Steph (Curlew country) recently went to..small world hey. Well these four girlies have had some seriously bad press and I'd just like to say, girls I totally get it.We've been there and children do change things..it was like moses parting the waves when I used to pick the boys up from school or go shopping in all my 50's gear,people would stare in amazement and you certainly got ridiculed or mocked for it. I never would leave the house without my eyebrows pencilled in and red lipstick perfectly on. Our 1950's lifestyle gradually got diluted down as the boys got older and I would go back to it in a blink if I could, it was a fabulous time, just fabulous.Who's to say how anyone should live their lives? It's not hurting anyone is it? Goodness me.
Anyway, I havent gone to work today as we have had a bit of a trauma..my darling, gorgeous ginger pussy cat, Basil was hit by a car this morning..he's alive..thank goodness.. but has a very badly injured leg and is at the Vets as I type waiting for a phone call.I just hope he will be ok, it looks like either his hip or his knee is damaged (I'm dreading the vet bill..they casually said, it shouldnt be any more than £300!!!!) my poor boy..he's such a gorgeous cat, if he was a human I would have married him ( sorry Pete!) please keep your fingers crossed as I think my heart would break if anything were to happen to him...so you can see why I titled this post like I have, apart from the horrid wet weather we have been having of late, it seems to be one thing after another in this household..never raining but pouring... but I hope the sun is shining for you wherever you are!
Back soon with a shop update and hopefully lots of nice vintage, pretty or shabby things to talk about!
a little update about Basil... he's home from the vets and has to spend 3 weeks in this cage, he had managed to drag himself home with a dislocated hip..poor thing and has stitches where his leg had been torn..how he got over the gate and through two catflaps I'll never know..but he's doing a lot of sleeping at the moment..I think it's going to be a long 3 weeks trying to keep him confined in here,a dog crate...!
Thank goodness we have an understanding vet..I certainly couldn't afford the £240 bill in one go!! TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY POUNDS!!! eek! I nearly dropped dead on the spot!!
