Christmas has come and gone, and I have had a small unscheduled break from blogging; no significant reasons, just Christmas and work and a cold and feeling a bit too busy for my liking.
Christmas itself was fairly relaxed, all food and presents eagerly and gratefully enjoyed.
A day in bed with paracetamol and a good book helped with the cold.
Work is nearly done (just one more shift to go). Remind me again why anyone wants to go shopping on Boxing Day? Plenty do, apparently, but it mystifies the bejeezus out of me...
And 2013 is nearly over - where did it go?
Well, it doesn't really do to have favourites, but I was very taken with this 1960s Brettles nightdress and peignoir set from my friend Tracey. She know me so well!
Tonight we are going round to see the new year in with our friends Claire and Ron, and whoever else pitches up. If I make it to midnight awake, it'll be the year's first miracle..
However, we are taking the karaoke machine, so that might keep me going. Any requests? (Who said Shaddup your face?)
1970s C&A maxi dress and bracelets- charity shop
1960s faux fur cape /jacket - gift
1970s hat - flea market
Boots - community fair
Here's Eldest, wearing her 1960s vinyl Baker boy cap, looking as though she should be a character in A Taste of Honey or Up the Junction.
Little sisters always ruin the shot...
...but he ain't heavy.
We were off to see The Hobbit at the Imax, it was great.
Did everyone have a good Christmas? I hope so, and I'll be catching up with all your festive/end of year action very soon.
Hmm, wonder what 2014 has in store?
I daresay I will be buttiful, continue to bellow, and be a godess.
It's hard to tell with Littlest's atrocious spelling whether she meant goddess or godless. Either works.
Edit: linking to Judith's Hat Attack, the first of 2014!
See you next year!
