Blue hair and cocktails and theatre…

I’ve had a lovely celebratory weekend so far – Friday night out with Lizzy for her 21st, wearing my blue hair… which was really fun! Then last night a group of us went for dinner and to the theatre to see the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, put on at the Chelmsford Civic Theatre by Springers . I didn’t quite know what to expect, but it was FABULOUS! Had so much fun  – in the words of a friend, “I had a ridiculously good time tonight” :)

Definitely think I’ll be hunting down the film to watch, and it’s made me want a corset and frilly knickers even more than I already did – lol!

Today I’m off to Colchester Zoo with Mum & Dad – it’s Father’s Day, and Dad said he’d rather like to go to the zoo and visit Mum’s meerkat (a 60th birthday present from her office) so I’m taking my camera and crossing my fingers the weather behaves!

In crafty news, I’ve rejoined Crafter…oo! and am determined not to let life get in the way of me being active on it this time – likewise with a couple of other forums I’ve drifted from recently.

Right, best go and wrap Dad’s pressie and get ready for them to pick me up – pics tomorrow!

Things that make me happy Thursdays

A random selection this week… it’s been an odd sort of week but there have still been things to smile about!

  • Today is Lizzy’s 21st. Squee! Happy birthday chica! Cocktails tomorrow… and blue hair!
  • Corsets – I love them! Hoping to order a couple for the Fling and Heather’s wedding
  • lying in the sun on the floor at lunchtime, making notes and not caring what people think
  • being super-inspired for all my different projects and making tonnes of plans
  • BBQing in the rain for my Gran’s 82nd birthday
  • Rollerskating… I can still do it! Eeeeee! And flying round the rink is definitely one of the best feelings in the world
  • 2 new members for etc – and it’s only our first exhibition! now planning lots of other things to do with it
  • dinner with an old friend who now lives abroad – these catchups are glorious but all too rare
  • seeing my advert published in an email *pic*
  • my housemate finishing an assignment, thus giving us an excuse to go out for dinner
  • the Fling is coming…
  • hunting for cars for the rally – found a Golf which would be awesome
  • have survived the day job for three months this week
  • as mentioned in a previous post, the clientsfromhell.net and damnyouautocorrect websites – so much inappropriate but much-needed laughter!
  • a girl on the tube this morning wearing the MOST gorgeous vintage lace dress, with her hair in victory rolls, bright red lipstick and carrying a parasol. I wanted to be her!!
  • My blackbird popped up on my way to work this morning too – I thought he’d abandoned me since the rain arrived!
  • My friends are amazing – able to improve my mood even if I’ve had the day from hell and am all emotional and rubbish. I obviously know this anyway, but it’s wonderful to be reminded.

Inspired!

I’m having so many inspired moments this week I might just explode!

Roller skating makes me really happy… but I need to re-learn how to stop. However, whizzing round the rink at speed after 11 years of not doing so is the most fantastic feeling! Sadly, like my car, the minute I stop I feel distinctly ordinary again – there’s clearly something about wheels!

Have had a fabulous weekend celebrating my gran’s 82nd birthday – we BBQ-ed in the rain and laughed a lot and it was just generally really lovely – although I see a lot of my family, it’s rare to see them all at once for longer than an hour or so, so it was gorgeous. Had a proper chance to talk my latest business idea through with Mum & Dad as well, to get an initial feel for its workability – they seem to approve and threw up some very salient points which I shall go off and investigate over the next couple of weeks, but it was rather encouraging!

I have also been drooling over firebox and Corsets UK – the first is dangerous because I adore gadgets, and the second is dangerous because I adore corsets! Had intended to dye my pink one purple this weekend, but failed due to the rain – I don’t dare get bright violet dye out indoors (especially not in my parents’ abode, lol!)

I really must go and dig out my camera charger so I can get some photos into these posts – they’re not terribly interesting otherwise!
