I'll never make one of those professional blogging types. Despite taking my camera to Liz and Adrian's bonfire party by the time I'd remembered to get it out of my bag all the food had been eaten, the fireworks let off and the guests looked so drunk I couldn't bring myself to embarrass them by posting their pictures.

You'll just have to take my word that Adrian's South Indian pumpkin & chick pea curry and aloo saag were delicious, the fireworks were spectacular and a good time was had by all. Although I was knocking back the ale until the early hours I managed to complete the Guardian crossword when I got home and happily ate vegetable samosas with chili sauce for breakfast.
Jon & I hit the chazza shops yesterday afternoon and I picked up this crimplene maxi for £5 from the British Heart Foundation.

1970s Richard Shops gold lurex dagger collar blouse £2.20 Sue Ryder
Krista's got me hooked on Type O Negative so I was pleased to spot October Rust in Banardos for £1.49
I couldn't resist snapping up Phoenix by psychedelic band The Warlocks either.
Groovy 1960s felt hat with a vinyl trim (50p, Compton Hospice)
Two pairs of hand-made, fully-lined metallic leather trousers at £1 per pair. These babies are totally insane but fit like a dream. I might chop them off into hot pants.
4 x hand rolled 1960s scarves (50p each, YMCA).
White 1960s punched vinyl shoulder bag (£1.50, junk stall on the market)
Vintage wood brooch (50p, Salvation Army)
|1960s maxi dress worn with tapestry boots and a heap of junk jewellery.|
Hope you're having a great weekend.
