• Lol that's exactly what I said Chris, any more injuries and I'll need a rethink on the ghost thing. Hope you're cool Chris and tell the chaos I send my best :-)
    • That doesn't sound much of a defence Chris.

    • Not really mate, but it is the only one I can submit, poor or not.
  • Last Tuesday, we both lost our beloved former neighbour Evelina who we had been visting on and off in hospital for close to 2 months. Today is her funeral, so here is my funeral attire. Vintage meets vintage-inspired; late 1950s/early 1960s.

    Evelina was a wonderful Italian elderly lady who knew how to design and make clothes - without a pattern and before arthritis kicked in and her late husband Mario became ill with dementia. In the brief time we were neighbours - over 6 years, before we moved house - she always enjoyed seeing my latest purchases, incluiding the earrings I am wearing today. There were the offerings of advice on what alterations I should have done to a garment, whenever necessary be it over a cuppa, lemonade or the occasional small brandy she'd offer me with a few Tim Tam biscuits or chocolates on the side. RIP my dearest friend and [former] neighbour... Michael and I will certainly miss - but never forget - you.

    • Real sorry Bec, chin up Lass ;-)

    • Cheers Al. It's just been one of those years. :-/
    • Sorry to hear about your loss Bec, here's a hug x
    • Thanks Harry. X I'm catching up with her youngest daughter some time soon. We all miss her dearly. Eating Ferrero Rocher (or any chocolate) or Tim Tams biscuits and drinking nips of brandy from time to time (she would push these on Michael and I) will never be the same. :-(

    • Nice look Alan, I promised myself when I was a teenager that when I became an older man I would dare to wear pink (but we'll call it "salmon", shall we?) So I commend you sir, for your stylish, reckless abandon!

    • Ha-ha, many thanks Graham, nice to see you posting ;-)
