Dr Seuss

Dr Seuss was a man after my heart

'I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.  Fantasy is a necessary ingredient for living, it's a way of looking through life through the wrong end of the telescope.  Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities'

I am nonsense sometimes/most of the time, and I will always prefer laughing.

Despite my yelping last week about boldness and being more creative I woke up in a white mood, simple.

No shoes, no jewels

minimal accessories, red lips and a bit of sass
luckily you can't see my armpits


Roses from Mr Foxy, because Saturday I was a stroppy sod for a bit
he wanted to cheer me up.
He buys me flowers a lot



dying flowers, maybe but I like them

Posing with a doorstop
so de rigeur
so 'right now'

Little Miss-ette's feck off bow


Missy and little Miss-ette made these
there are 4 in total
they work
I was so impressed they are hung on the wall

it's marmalade on my toast and a hot cup of tea day
I go with the flow
I charge and crash around a lot and then I have a day like today
still, quiet and simple


See you all soon 
my 'white' phase may last all morning, I never know

but you all remain AWESOME

XXXXXXXXXX

  2. You look fabulous in all white ... I love to wear white but I'm so clumsy and totally unable to eat or drink without a spillage of some sort that all black is the more practical option.
    I LOVE Dr Suess too ... I am a huge fan from way back! They were the only books that I didn't mind reading to the kids over and over and over ... like kids make you do.

    1. Dr Seuss is all shades of awesome! the dress was stained as soon as I ate, I'm a scruffy bugger x x

  3. You look so pretty in your white frock and fuck off bow and, of course, the must have accessory this season, a doorstop (so that's where I'm going wrong!). Those bows are brilliant, maybe that's because I'm a Sagittarius! xxx

  4. You do look lovely in white.

    How lucky you are to have such an understanding partner.
    If I showed the slightest sign of unhappiness, my ex was out of the door!

    Have a perfect week xx

  6. Dr Seuss is my life guru. I live by his teachings. (Can I call myself a Seussian?) Love the simplicity of the white dress and pop of red in your lippy. Very classic look. I can't pull off the white frock look because as soon as I wear white I spill something ghastly on myself. XXX

  9. Ooh, look at you, all simple and classy and virginal. Yeah, YOU! You look beautiful, Sandra - did your frock stay clean all day? If so, hats off to you! That marmalade and toast would have been dropped straight down my front if I'd been wearing all white...
    Ahh, Mr Foxy is a love to give you roses to cheer you up. Hair bows and archery bows, all fabulous! xxxx

  10. You are such a Cutie, Sandra... You should be a model for some company.... Love your 'white' ---although it made me shiver since it's cold here this morning. My big ole sweatsuit looks quite different from your pretty white dress... ha
