Face down on the street with a sausage in his hand in the ghetto



Happy New Year, darlings!
I trust you all had a rollicking good time!
We went out to the country, as we usually do, to our friends Gillian and Wayne's spread in Okuku to make some noise....I collected Ralph from the airport on the way, and we've not really stopped partying since....
We popped out this morning for breakfast to a suburb we don't really like, that G winningly coined "the ghetto"-hence the post title (with a little adjustment for my own amusement)!
Whilst we were about it, I decided it was the perfect time to take some pix in the travelling yellow skirt...


Am gagging to catch up with y'all, but right now the sun has come out, I have a glass of bubbly to sink, and the neighbours are playing reggae loudly...
It must be Summer!

PS:I'm all over the Carry on Punting idea.......

I fecking love that yellow skirt! You have certainly done it justice - I'm having some serious hat envy right now.

Happy New Years Helga!! I LOVE that yellow skirt and I love that vest - I don't normally love vests, but that one is making me think I could in fact rock a vest. Also in regards to our Ria, she has managed to get accommodation via the production company she works with - hurrah! But she said she'd love to meet you for a coffee or something when she's in Chch. I think she will be in touch via facebook:)

HA! Love the photos of you on the statue/sculpture, whatever the hell it is! So glad to see the boots, I've been waiting to see how you'd wear them. Gorgeous little hat!

Joni said...

There's that billowing skirt of sunshine. And you do it some mighty fine justice on that New Zealand beach. Love it with the vest and top hat style.
