After Minerva commented, Enough is enough! When can we wear our floaty chiffon again? I knew what I had to do. I've had enough of being held captive to a seemingly eternal winter so off came the fake fur coat, long-sleeved crimplene maxi, gloves and the sheepskin hat that's been almost welded to my head for a fortnight and on came my Jean Varon cocktail frock.
For a fleeting moment it felt deliciously liberating, that is until the snow started to fall and I had to scurry back indoors to sit next to the fire and shroud myself in blankets.
Why don't you join me? Crack open your wardrobe and get snapped wearing something totally unsuitable, impractical and floaty, maybe if we ignore the weather it'll get bored and leave us in peace - just don't blame me if you go down with hypothermia!
Mental? I'm probably still delirious from the £10 a litre bargain white rum I was drinking last night and the news that The Rolling Stones are headlining Glastonbury. Can you believe it? I might just explode with excitement.
I know it's been months since I mentioned a Kinky Melon website & finally it's up and open for business. A long time coming but hey, computers weren't even on the curriculum when we were at school so it's been a long and slow (and argumentative) process.
Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique
I've made a couple of sales already! Don't worry, I promise not to turn my blog into an advert, I'll pop the link in my side bar and it's entirely up to you to visit.

See you soon.
