Can you play truant from yourself?

Knowing you need to go to bed when.......................................

Having a 1.30am cigarette, hearing and noticing 'weird' noises and lights on the railway track, I am spooked until,



I realise it's workmen fixing things

One time in the midst of sleep deprived new baby state
  I woke Mr F to inform him of the moving lights in the sky
I thought we were being invaded
 Mr F sent me to bed


Today I'm playing hookie 
It should be Art Friday
today, it's swerved to 'things I have made this week vendredi'
I hacked a jumper 
and made this felt brooch, inspired by Sacramento's Felting Flowers DIY


I do get bored looking at my face haha!


?????


The cowl didn't work with the leftover jumper


'Copacabana'
I would LOVE a shirt with so many ruffles
and showgirl outfit
Grocery shopping would be a hoot if we had a cha-cha down the aisles and a cocktail or two


I thought I would show the outfit



I made this years ago

It's an elephant


The Derriere 
I do like a good firm derriere



Beware Fanilows, he get's shot
by Lola
LOlA!



I think I may need a nap

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
I'm off food shopping later
in my ruffles and hopefully a cha-cha in the freezer aisle

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

SEE Y'ALL NEXT WEEK

  1. Well I for one am super impressed with your felt brooch AND your elephant. Your renovated jumper is fab too ... though I must say you are braver than I would be ... I'd be far too chicken to cut into a jumper like that.
    Yes ... grocery shopping would definitely be improved with the addition of cocktails and cha-chas. I might add it to the suggestion box next time I visit.

  9. Once my family and I were vacationing in a beach house. I was up early before everyone and I swore I saw ghosts dancing on the beach....turned out is was a group of three women doing tai chi. I love it when our eyes play tricks on us, like watching the clouds! I love whatever this is that you made and that elephant why he is all ass :) and I mean that in the best way!

  11. I am constantly hearing noises and waking the poor husband who is sent searching, muttering and swearing, around the house. I have to stop watching horror films late at night and getting myself in a frenzy! Love the idea of cha- cha-ing down the aisles in lots of ruffles. It would make grocery shopping much more interesting! Have a lovely weekend! XXX

    1. I don't watch anything scary now! it does make me a little jumpy too, a cha-cha is a less scary option! x x x

  12. I like what you have done to your jumper, quite inspiring. I am sure I have something I can hack into and recreate into a masterpiece such as yours. Poor Mr Foxy, I gave up waking TOF years ago with the sights and sounds of the night. My youngest could hear noises in his room the other night, he discovered a little iddy biddy mouse that had my big brave teenager in a panic!!! Needless to say that dear little mouse was found in a trap the following morning after being tempted by peanut butter!!!!

    1. Ahh they do get a little fed up with the frantic face and the 'there's something in the sky!' you are a brave one though, the cat bought a rat in once! a rat! there was a 'slight' panic haha! x x x

  13. I love your outfit and your brooch is lovely; you're so creative!

    I'm giggling at your alien invasion story (street lamps?). Lol. But my eyes often play tricks on me and I get easily creeped out by odd noises , too. I end up thinking somebody has broken in, or there's somebody in the garden... and it ends up being a cat or nothing at all. Lol. xx

    1. The cats make terrible noises! it can sound like murder sometimes! and yep, I have asked Mr F to check that one too haha! x x x

  14. I've seen a few people doing this cropped long-sleeve thing, and I need to try it. I think it would be a perfect top for my hot flashes - I need outfits that have vents! Great job on the flower, by the way.

    I'm not a Fanilow, but I do love Copacabana! The video didn't work though - said it was removed by user. Oh, well, if I listen to it now it'll be in my head for days.

  15. I love the ruffled hoodie and the felt brooch, great job! I would like an every day routine with music playing and people dancing, it would be so much fun and boring people would have to do that too!! Big hugs sweet owl!
