I think they're all in my garden!!

What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

Wonky; I've never had brown legs. I think I must scrub too hard! 

Trainers are a must. I have self imposed semsible shoes only so will usually be found in my merrels (much comfy) or Sketchers (declared smart).

Poor Flatter! I have visions of him being hit by a tidal wave and going down with his pirate ship.

Hey Clari!  what's this I hear about you having visible legs!?!  What with being without a washing machine for three weeks and playing laundry catchup now, I'm used to sporting shorts, scruffy teenage boys t-shirts...(can't get any female ones that don't have slits in the shoulders... Fashion!  ) and mud....and here's you flouncing round in dresses!?! Whatever next! 

See original post

 I've found the perfect flounce type pinifores Wonky! Smart enough to look like a proper manager all professional yet short enough that they don't impede my scaling a wall the other day to rescue a car when a tree branch had fallen on it like the true tom boy I am (the ladies who had come to see their friends car were however horrified).

I can't master the lady like bending down however; I'm just going to have to invest in some comedy pants.

Also; the breeze is rather nice while digging in the garden. Somehow you can "fluff" ones pinifores to direct the air where it is required.

Guests suitably stuffed with food have now departed.

Clarington stuffed with food now laid out in the floor of the lounge stretching my back into some kind of normal layout.

The weight of my belly isn't helping!

The biggest disadvantage of wanting to make everything? The state of my kitchen now!

Lily; I've often brought neighbours washing in if it's raining (even ironed them once as they were a little damp) but never because they looked wrong! The fun I could have with your neighbour; MASSIVE pants would be hoisted amongst the scruffy vegetable patch!

I am doubting my choice of custard for the trifle; unfortunately what with yesterday's cream heavy dish, today's trifle and ice cream making: the mere idea a taste test makes me feel most unwell. I may have over creamed.

Need a giggle? His lordship came downstairs and announced he had "wiped the bathroom sink"... 

... I'll just go do the rest of the bathroom then shall I?
