This week has flown by; not that I have achieved much, it's been lazy and rainy and unproductive.
I did go out with the kids today wearing this 1970s nightie.
I love it, and no one seemed to bat an eye. Naturally, if they had, it wouldn't have mattered. If wearing a nightdress out and about is good enough for Vix and Goody...
...then it's good enough for me.
Last chance to Vote Vix in the National Vintage Awards, by the way; voting ends at midnight on May 31st. She's still in the lead with a 120 vote cushion - do we think that's enough? Not that I've been obsessively checking, you understand, just showing a reasonable interest in my friend's success.
And I know she's only little, but she'll kick this Campaign Manager's arse if she doesn't win.
I've started making a pair of flares, with help from Willow.
Yeah, thank for that, cat.
I'm not convinced they're going to either fit or flatter, but I'll let you know.
Owen and Nina enjoyed our trip into town; Claudia had already headed off there with friends, and my offer to meet up was met with disdain and incredulity. I'd better get used to that, I suppose.
They wanted to know why I was taking a photo of this shop.
This sex shop has been here for as long as I've lived in Sheffield (32 years), and my old university friends were reminiscing about going in there to buy a blow-up doll for a play. It's one of those details I had forgotten all about until they reminded me.
No one seems to know what happened to the doll afterwards...
I look so bloody stony-faced in every single photo today; I'm not in a bad mood, honest, I just cannot do the smiling-to-order thing. If you meet me In Real Life, I laugh all the time, really I do.
I dance a lot too.
My kids would add that I sing constantly, and annoyingly. They hiss Muuuum! People can hear you! at me when I sing in the street. Three guesses as to whether that stops me. Funnily enough, the singing appears to be more of a concern to them than the fact I am out in public in a nightdress.

Denim waistcoat, flowers and bangles - charity shopped
Sandals - retail (sale)
I'll be taking my all-singing, all-dancing nightie and my hair flowers to Judith's Hat Attack and Patti's Visible Monday.
See, I can be organised. Sometimes.
Have a great weekend!
