Bygone days

A little rant on my part to go with Rosies blogg about

Esmeralda's Flopsies

What can i say, except i agree. Does anyone remember our independent cinema, The Victoria(which had a table space invaders machine! Totally fab! When did you last see one of those?), which faced proudly onto the market square in Cambridge? aad was bought out by M&S when the large mulitplex at the Grafton Centre forced it into closing. And Barneys, the little qirky mens clothing store that was next door to it.

Post party pics

Hiya All

Alison and I went to Manda's house fancy dress party at the weekend. We had a lovely time. And the costumes were just amazing.

So here are a couple of pics of us before we went out. Alison looks just gorgeous as Marta Hari.

And me, well being as i am on my budget drive, i revived Jack Sparrow(as no one at this party has met him). And its amazing what a year and a couple of stone lighter will do to a costume feeling alot better!

Kinky Knitting

Yes is possible. Here's the proof. My latest project, lace up corset gloves.

So kinky or not?

I think so.

May contain nuts

Twas Friday lunch time and the Stitch and Bitch gang(Hilary, Alison, My mum, Alex and Me ) are all back together again for the first time in ages. And some how the conversation comes around to the subject of men’s underwear, like it does, mainly Hilary saying that her hubby needed new ones and that it was hard to find what you want these days.

Now I must point out at this point that Hilary is lethally allergic to nuts. And so Tesco is a no go area as far as food is concerned for her, as they annoyingly will not guarantee any of their products to be nut free ‘ May contain nuts’ or ‘ produced in a factory which may have previously used nuts in production’ are likely things to be found on their packaging. Get with the programme Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsburys manage this.

So my suggestions were Next or Tesco for the undies hunt, as I had been told, by male friends, that these places were pretty good for the sort of underwear Hilary had mentioned.

Alison then says something like ‘I’m pretty sure they wont have nuts in the factory were they make the underwear’

And my very snappy droll retort was

Pants, may contain nuts!!

And roars of laughter all round!!

Wouldn’t you just love to see that written on packaging on men’s undies?! I would.

I know, I didn’t say it was good, but hey you have to admit, its funny, don’t you?
