Delia and other domestic ideas

I woke today to another snowy day and decided the only cure for it was breakfast in bed with the morning papers, followed by a long walk with the dogs..Have to say the former was considerably more enjoyable than the latter.  Attempting to walk two strong excitable dogs on ice and snow resulted in more manouvers than a contestant on Dancing on Ice.
On the plus side, though, spending more time than usual confined indoors has brought out my inner domestic goddess, (never thought I'd hear myself say that!)...I now have a (almost) gleaming house, and a kitchen full of my attempts at baking...Scones, pastries, cakes, you name it, I've made it!...Have to admit to a disaster with a panna cotta though, the finished item bore more than a passing resemblance to a breast implant, too much gelatin I think! (maybe I can patent it)!?

You get the idea......well sort of......

I did manage to get out of snow boots and that eskimo look for a moment .....although not for long brrrrr

Well , if I can get the car out today I'm doing a spot of antique hunting ( a favourite pastime) ,,,

And talking of Blasts from the Past .....and bringing back memories of glorious sunshine ( if you can remember such days) ...

Time to go, think I can smell something burning!...

New year blues
January 7th, one week into 2013, and not the best of starts to a new year, I have to say.  It's always very promising to begin with, super hyped at the stroke of midnight on Jan 1st, anything and I mean anything can be achieved, the gym, bring it on, a dry January, no problem, Oh and why not throw in a chocolate fast and full on detox for good measure!...I can do them all!.....Well that was the intention anyway!..So what went wrong, I hear you say, (after all, something always does!)...So far, so not particularly good, the chocolate fast failed along with the detox, the gym never really stood a chance, (especially after I dropped a log on my foot and bruised my toe), and the less said about 'dry January' the better....But, hey, better luck next year!
Thought I might sum up my blog with a cartoon each week , what do you think ?

But enough of these blues ...A Burlesque Show will brighten up any evening and I have some ideas to do just that ...

A little bit of Ooooh La la

But away from the fans , frills and stockings and all things burlesque ....

And as I haven't mentioned my antique hunting and selling , I thought this blast from the past might suffice

That's all for now
