All the greens

Dark green

Green and yellow



dusty green

Apple green

Blue hues.

Royal blue

Indian teal

Powder blue

Sky blue

Reds and greens - which is better?

I still can't see the difference...

Unfrumping the unfrumpable

I have joined an online plan to unfrump myself this year.  It started here and I hesitated about joining in at first because I still have children of "constantly sticky" age, but then I thought "if not now, when?" and joined.

My first task is to figure out what colours I like best on me.  I have no idea how to do this.  Colour-season website things tell me I'm an Autum; other people tell me to hold different colours up to my face and look in the mirror.  I cannot tell when I look better or worse, I just look a bit shit most of the time.

With this in mind, I am enlisting the help of a friend and we're going to try every basic colour from the rainbow out on me and then some, and post the pictures here to see what other people think I look best in.

Watch this space...

Lullaby for a woolly mammoth

WOOLLY MAMMOTH!  I am laid up with a bad back and my Mum sent me this, so here's your blog post for the week.  Normality will resume eventually.

Lullaby for a Woolly Mammoth 
Woolly Mammoth! 
Hear me sing.
Go to sleep you hairy thing.
You can snooze outside my door,
just as long as you don’t snore. 
Come on Shaggy, shut  your eyes.
 Now it’s time for beddy-byes

(sing to tune of Twinkle Twinkle)

(this is by James Carter who originally had it laid out to look like a woolly mammoth, I wrecked it to make it readable)
