If You Wear That Velvet Dress.... 

My favourite piece of clothing is a long, black, empire line velvet dress. I bought it on sale almost 10 years ago and it STILL looks good!

It's one of the most comfortable piece of clothing I own. It's a bit like wearing trackies - but doesn't look at all daggy. I often refer to it as my 'Monday Dress' as i frequently wear it on Mondays, when I really don't want to go to work, can't be bothered thinking of what to wear, and want to be comfortable.

I can dress it up or down, depending on the jewellery, but will always wear it with boots. I haven't owned a pair of court shoes for over 10 years. Me? I'm a boot girl. Black of course.

I always get compliments wearing this dress, even from total strangers in the street. I always feel good in it and i suppose that shows.

Do you have a favourite item of clothing? what is it & why do you like it so much?

Sniff, Sniff 

This is just a petty bitching session, so move on if you think you are going to be entertained.

Where I work, they don't supply tissues. (well, everywhere except the executive area) That's fair enough. I buy my own. Many of the girls here do. I don't mind if others use the occasional tissue - with or without asking. That's cool. not a problem.

One of my (male)colleagues has been using my tissues (most times asking) regularly for the last week & a half. He has a cold, hence he's been using quite a few. I KNOW they're only tissues, and I KNOW they're cheap, and I KNOW he's been courteous enough to ask, but if you've got a cold and need more than the odd one or two, BUY YOUR OWN FUCKING TISSUES!!!!!!

Hair Dilemma 

Most ranges of Shampoo and Conditioner now come in a number of different varieties to cater for different needs. You will typically find shampoo and conditioner specifically for:
- Dry hair
- Oily Hair
- Curl enhancing
- Fine Hair
- Smoothing
- Anti Frizz
- Normal hair
- Coloured hair

OK, my hair is coloured, curly (with a tendency to friz), fine and dry on the ends. What product should I buy? I need over half the range!!!!

Life Is Good 

Had a lovely weekend. And for a change, I returned to work Monday feeling refreshed. A rare thing of late.

It was quite a full couple of days starting off with a sleep ipn on Saturday. Then off to a second hand place reminiscent of Steptoe & Son. My other half found what he was looking for and & found a funky black folding chair for $5. I'm considering doing a decoupage number on it...Then it was into the city to have our ears blown out by the FA-18 Jet when it flew over Clipsal. Then home for a tasty lunch followed by some relaxing time cutting fabric for new Bedside table covers, to go with the new quilt cover. Watched the Clipsal race in the afternoon and continued with the domestic goddess routine (rare) and threw together a Lasagne (my specialty) for dinner, followed by Tim Tams for supper.

Sunday I had another sleep-in (heaven) followed by some brekky and a read of the paper. Then I did my sewing & made some lunch. The afternoon was spent cuddled up with my other half watching Clipsal and after a drive to the end of the earth & back & whipped up a macaroni cheese (unfortunately not my best this time).

It was a lovely weekend. It was relaxing, but I also achieved something. All is good...
