Drawing for a new tattoo

Very arty shot of today's outfit taken again by my 7 yo son, showing my new (2nd hand) Misery sailor top. Very happy with the top, not so happy with daggy maternity bra underneath, also not so happy with my camera. I really wish i could afford a new camera, but first priority is a new mic, and 2nd is my new tattoo, which will fill the gap on my left shoulder and help my goal of a complete 1/2 sleeve.

Picture (above) taken by my son. I am having trouble finding a bass player and drummer. Had a couple of each ring up but they just not the right ones. Have been jammin on some songs with a guitarist, SO much fun, and have started writing some originals.

Tried to sell my bike so I could buy a new microphone, but decided i love it too much and so in the garage it stays. But now, how to buy the mic? Had been saving for another tattoo (filling a whole in my sleeve-in-progress), but do i want this mic (next post) more?...

The Band

I have no new photos as the last week has seen my new wardrobe project go out the window, partly because all the eating and drinking has seen my stomach swell so, and partly because i have been distracted by a NEW project. I am so excited, i have decided to form a psychobilly band and i already have some interest from potential 'members'. I finally got my beautiful Maton guitar fixed, it has had a broken machine head for 4 years now, and while i was in the local Rockshop i put an ad up on their notice board. So far i have 2 guitatists and a drummer and a bass player, but i havn't met up with any yet, next week will see the start of my auditioning. Let's all cross our fingers this venture goes better than my recent roller derby disaster.
Photo above is included as it shows my new shoes which cost all of NZ$10 which i think go so well with all my new clothes and allow me to wear sexy dresses every day without feeling "over-dressed".

New Dress on Rollerskates

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

I LOVE these clothes!! Makes me wanna run off and join the circus, or write a very last minute letter to Santa with updates for my wishlist. Lovin the ruffly shorts and bustle skirt, and assorted dresses of course.

I have one of the corset boob tubes, it just arrived this morning, and to my delight i found some gorgeous stickers had been tucked into the parcel. So now my skate helmet is lookin even cuter, and the kid's bike helmets have green flames to match... reminds me i must take my rollerskates for a spin today.

Washing day

It has been raining for a week and this morning i can't find a clean bra (yesterday's is soaked with milk) so i find the only top that will hold breast pads in on it's own. Good news is it is a great day for drying washing so i should have clothes to get "dressed" in for the rest of the week.
Remarkably, i managed to get the eeni baby to not only fall asleep on her own, but to stay asleep for a bit, by swaddling her. Which means i have a chance to do some more washing.
My girl says i look like "da ballewina", which is a compliment.

Braving the Christmas Rush

I went to the "mall" and got me some spanx. Took me half an hour to wiggle my arse into the suckers, and the sensation feels alot like sausage meat being squeezed tightly into a thin wetsuit.

My capri pants arrived today. From the measurements i ordered size 10 and am dismayed to find they are slightly on the tight side - strike 1 for ordering from online auctions. I do love them despite. Am further dismayed to find that the tight underwear has shifted the lump on my stomach up onto my back. But i am quite proud of my 2 minute quiff - love me some high hair.. .
