My alter ego

So here are a few pics of me as Magenta, a character from the rocky horror picture show. I had a fantastic night out dressed up as her.

Mandas birthday

A very happy 40th for Manda this year. Here's her and I on a night out.

And some fairy cakes i baked for her.


Seeing as i have moved to near a very pretty Victorian grave yard i thought it only appropriate to have a Halloween house warming. Here are some pics

My carved Scream pumpkin

Witch doctor on the war path!

Abi biting me, being helped along by the devil!

Abi and Zareh in the graveyard after midnight

Ian in the graveyard, the weird misty stuff appeared when i took the picture, it didn't really exist, spooky eh!!

Abi vamping it up

Me as the corpse bride


Me(Tim Burton's, corpse bride), Ian(devil) , Claire(Goth Witch) and Zareh(Witch doctor)

Halloween fairy cakes i made(perhaps these should be demon cakes instead!)

Margaret(pretty witch)

Martyn(Lucien) and Alison(Marie Antoinette, the one with the severed neck!)

It seems that a good time was had by all. And as always, i did too much food.
Ah well, no cooking for me for the next few days, left overs, yum!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello All

So its been quite a while since i blogged. Reasons: moving house!

I have finally got the home i have always wanted. I now have a lovely Ground Floor flat( no stairs, yippee!) very close to the city centre(10 Min's on my new electric bike called Winifred, as she makes this whinnying sound as she powers along) and I have a wet room bathroom which is just fab. And best of all, its a council flat, so i am finally on a decent level of rent, and secure in the fact that they wont kick me out , unlike private landlords who are always selling property etc.

So as i mentioned i now have an electric bike. I got rid of my beloved Volvo, Bertie, as she was just getting too expensive to repair and run. And so i am now the Eco lass on my electric bike, see me whizzing round Cambridge, alot of people have. And i love it. Its not so much now its winter, but knitting soon helps take care of that. Wish she had some gears and suspension though, as my hands are still taking a real battering.
