Hippy child & hedgehog invasion

A lazy day today, real lazy, I slept something like five hours longer than normal and didn’t realise the time at all when I woke up – it’s frustrating because I went to sleep four or five hours earlier than I normally do because I want to get into a new routine!  Ironic really!

Though I think I’ve caught the cold Paul and Henry has, as I am achy and bleh!

If I could dress however I wanted to today how would I?

A light cotton dress made useless by a hugely thick knee length fleece cardigan, white dress potentially and rainbow cardigan – I want to wear large beaded jewellery, so I would probably have three different length necklaces on, wooden beads with copper or brass and bracelets to match.

It’s not summer and it’s not a warm day, but I am crazy enough to wear sandals with this because I know I will be warm with that cardy. 

As lazy as I feel I’d actually make more effort with my hair today and have them done with curling tongs, so I have a cute but scruffy rainbow dolly look to me.

I may even do something I really love and wear one of my knitted plaits in my hair and maybe attach a couple of feathers to it.

Basically I want to look like a child from Peter Pan’s lost boys or like something that fell out of my all-time favourite TV series, The Tribe, today.

It’s an OK day to be gardening, dry at any rate – so I’d have probably have been out there today if it wasn’t for the bad neighbour.  Especially as I seem to have window trained a great tit to befriend me in the last few days, I have a feeling he’d actually sit on my lap or something if I were outside he doesn’t seem afraid of me when I am at the window and he has come up to look at me within 3 inches and I move and he doesn’t flinch.

As I said before, when it comes to wildlife, I am a bit of a Disney Princess.

Talking of which I had a dream last night that six hedgehogs came into the garden one after the other and walked into the house and wouldn’t leave and as I was trying to encourage them to get out, they hid.  When Paul felt that they can’t live in the house, he went to chase them out and as he did so they all slowly morphed into porcupines instead and aggressively tried to defend themselves from being man handled. 

Paul was so upset in the dream he phoned up a specialist to get rid of this very problem, the man came and said that the hedgehog/porcupine problem is down to him not remembering things for me and not taking care of me properly, so the porcupines are trying to fill in his duties.

Paul sarcastically said what like doing the washing up etc?  This made the entire four little baby porcupines become bigger than their largest parent and they all chased Paul – I don’t know what happened to Paul in the dream after that, but I was confused and went into the garden.

I nearly trod on a frog and the frog was sitting in a crack in the patio looking at me.  When the hedgehog/porcupine specialist came out into the garden and was on the phone to somebody – he then turned to me and said that someone special has arranged a party for me and that they are going to be coming soon.

I was confused because nobody visits us.

So, when people started letting themselves into my house to set up the party in the garden I was amazed to find loads of people there, mostly celebrities, like Queen, Whitesnake and a bunch of others.

I never did find Paul again in the dream.

I woke up when someone behind me kiss me on the cheek and cuddled me from behind, whilst Brian May was about to start on his guitar for me.

Weird dream, but fun!

I think that the hedgehogs is something to do with my inability to do art because of my art table being used for other things – hedgehogs are one of the main animals I tend to paint and draw with confidence.

Thanks for reading!

Gypsy, spice and plums

It’s an autumn gypsy style day, for me!

Unfortunately today I can’t dress how I want to because I can’t find my gypsy skirt!  But, today I would like to be in a brown and pink floral skirt with a white or brown lacy cami top, sandals, and a lovely crochet shawl that is oversized.

Still want my beaded and wooden jewellery today and little dangles in my hair!

But I love the crochet and lacy stuff today!

A friend online got me thinking about “plum season” by mentioning cinnamon French toast – yum! 

I miss my cinnamon French toast with homemade cinnamon plum compote recipe; the plums don’t look good just yet in store.

But it’s a heavenly recipe I learned from Nigella Lawson on TV and the way I make it when the compote goes cold it often goes hard, like hard candy, which is a treat in itself!

The problem is (though it’s not a problem for me) it’s a huge aphrodisiac! 

I generally try to have this as a Christmas Day breakfast.

Scruffy and blue

Today is a scruff day as I call them, one of my rarest days.

I am wearing a baggy maxi-dress with a baggy mock cashmere cardigan that is literally two sizes too big, it’s also a blue day.  All the colours are various shades of blue.

If my white crocs didn’t shrink because I accidentally left them by the radiator and they shrank, I’d have been wearing them.  But alas, crocs shrink in heat – who knew?

I am also wearing banana bamboo fibre socks, they are my favourite.

Big beaded necklace and lots of beaded crystal bracelets as accessories and my hair is down today, after I decided last night to pigtail my hair in bed after washing it, so I have a very wavy effect by the morning.

I look scruffy, but I feel comfortable, because this cardigan feels like a big hug.

It’s also an insecure day and I am feeling a little blue, hence the chosen colours.

Happy reading!
