Like a sour cherry cake ...

This has been one of those days where everything you think is about to go wrong goes right, really right. First of all, I woke up to find I had ten (yes, ten!) comments on my previous post, and they were all so lovely and made me smile like an idiot. Can I just mention that you all have amazing, unique, cute blogs too!I went to my Grandad's house today, had a swim in his pool (and showed of my new, kooky bikini), and then I played croquet with my sister and her friend. And no, I did not play it with hedgehogs and flamingos and yell 'off with her head!' the whole time. However I have discovered that I am the worst croquet player in all history and that I am a danger when holding one of the bat, sticky things.

Another lovely thing is that I found a dress in my attic which I was imidiatly drawn to because it was retro, floral and above all, granny-ish. Turns out it was a dress my Mum wore when she was a bridesmaid when she was around my age. I tried it on and it looked ridiculous.


But I've changed the neckline and made it shorter - with my trusty, orange fabric scissors and now it looks a little less garish and very cute with a my polka-dot heels, a belt, pearls and a hair bow! It makes me feel like I'm a grandma from the 50s, in a good way of course.

Keeping with the 50s theme, Heres a little something for you to feast on,
My 50s film-star name is
Rose-Mary Burrows.

Bet you’ll never find out how I worked that out.
(your Mum/Dad’s name and the first street/road you lived on)
What would your names be? x

Sorry, another thing I forgot to mention earlier ...
I'm not going to cut the shorts which I wore in the previous post as all of you guys think they're great anyway and I don't want to spoil them if I accidently cut the wrong part - which, knowing me, I would do!

Also, how do you tag or be tagged because I would really like to tag a few bloggers who I love and also I love answeing questions.
Another one of my geeky secrets ...
