Midlands Moblog Meetyup

Hello Midlands mobloggers! Sorry I was so late but it was really cool to meet you and the puppets loved being allowed out on the town! Here are a few photos from me:
1: Mobloggers at The Old Fox.
2: Essitam meets Freakdog. J is busy with the menu.
3: Where there's wine, there's puppets.
4: Moblog's plush community meets.
5: Hollive & Bmal & Paintist with Nurse Booty and Dr Moody.

The Deciphers broke my shed

Rah! Manly sledgehammer-pickaxe-smashery courtesy of musicians! Two of the Paintist/SWMBO-christened "triplets" ARE actually brothers and half of The Deciphers (band with a moblog!). The husband and brother-in-law smashed my workshop-shed to the ground on Saturday, which is the main reason why we were six hours late for the Midlands Meet. What can I say - they are both as determined as each other and would NOT leave until the whole thing had been destroyed! NickyC, my sister-in-law also gave up her entire weekend to help us. I've gone back to work for a well-earned snooze...

Wine Glass Hand

I finally smashed the last of the everyday wine glasses so now it's on the the Good Ones given to us by Dicko. They are dangerously large.

The Other Side

More photos from Saturday. Polished black walls gave a spooky reflection. As did the shandy...

Forgot I took these! Must have been the half a shandy I drank. Saturday night at the Jamhouse.

3,000 miles apart and sharonthebaron and I end up with identical fringery and hair colour! Ah, sister-thing!

Get back, vultures! This is a-l-l mine!! :D I thought I'd better stock up on the free booze I get via work before officially resigning, just in case they withdrew my priveledges! The back of the Yaris is now scraping along the ground.

Strangest job

(viewed 858 times)
The other night Essitam asked who had had the strangest job. I was a carnie! I worked in a fairground for a summer at some American Blackpool, yelling at children to sit down, jumping on carousels and riding the rollercoasters for free. I absolutely hated it. I am not a people person! There are, unsurprisingly, no photos of me in my fetching yellow, orange and brown uniform. Anyway this fairground is currently in the yard outside at my work and, whilst suffering traumatic flashbacks to my carnie days, I battled through in order to moblog it. A l-o-n-g day of working not only on a bank holiday, but also with the soundtrack of wheezing pipe organs, awaits me. Joy.

*edit - It seems I might be being the tiniest bit of an old misery here! It's a sunny day and there is the happiest possible music playing within a stone's throw! Note to self: Think Edwardian...Embrace the inner-carnie, goonflower, come on...
