It's Friday; how did that happen so quickly?
Not that I am complaining, Friday night is family dinner out or takeaway night, so we all look forward to that. None more so than me, I get sooooo tired of the relentless treadmill of cooking.
I wish I liked it more, or felt more inspired...
As it is, the thought of a curry and a beer later is perking me up no end!
I had my hair cut this week.
I do so love the banishment of the grey roots and the swingy feel of a good haircut!
The shorter fringe and more precise bob, accompanied by the chevron skirt, and my new-to-me Art Deco-esque shoes and necklace, give a rather 1930s look.

Cherry blossom in my garden, priceless.
Sticking with the black and white theme, this was me yesterday.
I feel a bit like Madonna in the video for True Blue when I wear a 50s-style dress over leggings, but I went with it.
I forgot my chiffon scarf, most remiss of me.
I pottered around Chesterfield flea market as usual, just because it's there and I can, and came home with a few bits and bobs for a whopping £3 spend!

1950s glass jug - 50p

Charlie's tail just made it into shot there.
He is in disgrace. He is a killing machine, we have had a steady supply of dead rats, birds and squirrels lately.
I bought a collar with a bell for him, but couldn't bear to watch his abject misery and distress as he tried desperately to get it off, so I gave in and removed it myself.
The bloodshed will doubtless continue, and there will be other shouts of "Muuuum! Charlie's got a squirrel and he's eating its head!" from my appalled-yet-fascinated kids.
I can't keep an eye on him all the time, I've got things to do!
Like making another reversible tote bag.
