|I have not been eating cake. I spent seven days |
living on soup, and can now manage mash.
So far this year's giveaway Box of Robotness is only part-full, but there will definitely be one by the end of the month, and what I have assembled to put it in is rather nice. I need to find some more bits and bobs to go in, though. I only do one giveaway a year, so it needs to be a good one.
Rubbishness will continue early next week as I'll probably have to work into the evenings on Monday and Tuesday, but on Wednesday it's my friend Tim Weaver's book launch. I go to his launches every year, and Mr Robot takes the photos. We used to work on a games magazine together, but nowadays Tim writes crime novels and is doing rather well at it! In his early days he'd do a day at work, then go home and work on his books into the night – he's worked really hard for his success.
I got sent a lovely 1960s dress in the post this week. It's a bright pink cutwork lace shift dress. I swapped it for a silk TrashyDiva dress I'd never worn and had outgrown. I'd wear it to Tim's book launch, but it's probably a bit flamboyant for a day at work beforehand, especially with my red hair. (Emma Peel wore pink and she had red hair, therefore red and pink don't stink...) Do my workmates deserve that much Fabulous?
On which note, would any regular commentators like a size 16 Heyday! Mary dress? It's a stunning frock, in a 'deco green' satin but satin and my tummy aren't good pals, so again I've never worn it - I tried shapewear, but really I should just learn to avoid satin. Never been worn (in fact, it might still have the tags on). You can see it in other colours here. First regular commenter who wants it can have it for free. All I ask is if you decide you don't want to keep it, you spread the love and give it away, you don't sell it!
