Yes, I made them with my own fair hands. Well, I actually bought the wooden wardrobe door knobs but I did paint them (pink, obviously) and then applied a cute 1950’s transfer (or decal, as they’re called) onto them. Do you like them? No, don’t answer that cos if it’s a ‘no’ then you and me are going to fall out. And that is all I have to say on the matter. Goodbye. Qx

(Oh, and one more thing… do you like them?)

Oh. Perle, I miss you so much but you had to go. You were so small and so cramped and if we wanted to go to the toilet in the middle of the night we had to trek to the wash facilities…

 

keep hens and make cute things;

wear pink and love my lawn flamingos:

I love you Don Featherstone, by the way…

 

go crazy for kitsch, bake more cakes or, if I’m short of time (and the hens haven’t laid any eggs) go out and eat other people’s cakes and – perhaps,Ā  best of all – with age comes the freedom to

lie about how old I am!

(Well, like I’ve said in my ‘Categories’ – you know, that bit on the right hand side of my blog – I shall never reveal my age unless I am forced to and even then I’ll lie. It’s just something I do…)
