Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time...

My cavolo nero is starting to take off, the spring onions are doing well, my spinach is thinking about it and my cabbages are decidedly disinterested. As far as is possible to tell, the carrots are looking pretty good, but my brussels sprouts seem to have no intention of forming delightful little buds. 
It's my first go at planting a Winter garden, and it's not hugely successful so far. The star is some self seeded parsley, but that is not going to fill my plate with home grown veges.
I dream of a glass house and a neon green thumb!

I know you're feeling me, 'cause you like it like this....

I would make a very good bear. A big, snuggly, cherry coloured bear.
Hibernating throughout the Winter months is totally my bag.
I'm actually enjoying this properly cold Winter, maybe for the first time ever!
(although the whining usually starts about mid July)
Warmies, coseying up with G, lots of potatoes, movies, books and sleeping are the main activities.
Um, not much. And then largely under duress.
Feeling far too lazy!
But I have been mostly reaching for this wool coat I opshopped a few years ago for a tenner if I have to go out.

Love you, Sue!

Fallen leaves in the night, who can say where they're blowin'

WTF is going on with that intense blue sky in April?!
Turned out to be a gloriarse day, with a delightful warm breeze. Just when I was settling into Winter colours and snugglies, along comes a splendid day to get a pile of washing done and open all the windows!
I had to pop out on a small mission, and had the windows right down in the car, blowing my hair all up like being an extra in a Beegees music video.
O yeah.

More than a nod to the amazing Goody here.
We seem to have  similar ladylike with a crass core sensibility going on, and I find her highly inspirational!
You rock, lady!

My hat, jacket and frock are all from my darling sistercousinwifey at different times, and don't they go together perfectly?!
I got the charming perhaps  60's Australian tourist souvenir bracelt whilst in Canberra for Helgastock 2015; it's slightly broken, but O how I love it! It was also a freebie at a Sallies we went to!
The bag was a gift from sweet and gorgeous Carli!
