£5 shoes!!!

I went out for lunch yesterday with my mum and we had lunch in the pub, i had lovely thai egg noodles (yum) and mum had the lasagne. She bought me this lovely velvet skirt from Topshop as part of my Christmas present.

£28

I had to get the petite as the only sizes in the regular were 12, 14 & 6. I'm a 6/8 in Topshop but an 8 is usually a better fit.

I bought these shoes in the kids section from Tesco last night for £5, they're great because they have an elastic strap across so they don't slip off! I have very narrow feet so this is excellent :)

apologies for the small picture!

Alcoholic


Chase forgotten dreams,
grasp a whiskey bottle and forget,
those dreams once,
are now without reach.

Papers askew,
a desk, 
no smiling face appears,
instead, a devil mask.

Alone,
dark, dismal is this place!
Blankets are few,
scraps are thrown to beggars.

Bambi eyes,
thrown to the lions,
vodka and lime if you please,
comfort in every sip.

Christmas Dress

The boy and I went shopping for a bit on Saturday, he bought one of my wish list items for me but I cannot wear it till Christmas, waaaaaaa! Its so lovely.

Topshop - £46

We went to see the wonderful Frankie Boyle last night, he was hilarious. I did take outfit pictures but I changed my phone (to a blackberry) and I can't seem to upload pictures to my photobucket. I plan to purchase a digital camera later on this week so you'll just have to put up with poetry (which i will post tomorrow) and pictures stolen from various websites.

More baking

I attempted to make fairy cakes yesterday but i forgot they were in the oven and ended up really dry. I salvaged them by giving them wings and adding strawberry jam :)
I also finally finished a poem about Bleak House (been working on it for the past 2 weeks), I've written a stanza about each of the main characters, i shall type it up on here very soon.

Myself and the boy went for a pub lunch today, i had the scampi and the boy had a cheeseburger (bleh). I find pub food  more filling than restaurant food, and its much cheaper!
This blouse is a recent purchase from ebay, it was completely see through so i bought a white vest top from H&M yesterday to wear underneath it.

Tea and a bit of Emma :)

On tuesday night i ate 3 of my peanut butter cakes, yum, they were washed down with a nice cuppa :) I watched the first part of the BBC's version of Emma, i had meant to buy the version that was on tv 3 years ago but alas, ended up with the wrong one! Oh well, it'll do.

Photobucket

This outfit is from yesterday, i spent most of the day writing poetry and reading A Hollow Crown by Helen Hollick, funnily enough, it is about another Emma; Queen Dowager of England, she was the first Queen of England!

Harold & Edyth

Muscular, safe, wrap me around you
incense, soft and sweet
Armour; farewell
tear laden faces
not goodbye forever.

Remember our thriving bodies
sweat trickled backs
eyes ever knowing
a hidden, secret understanding
yours ever, at whatever cost.

***

An enormous presence
brave men scatter
ridiculed many an Earl
William the Bastard
England, like a fat plump goose
is awaiting the knives.

It begins.
