I wanna be a platinum blonde...

... Ha ha, but I didn't quite manage it on the first go.  

Here I am with my new blonde tresses.   I have been banging on about what a rut I am in for the past few months so I thought I'd go for it.  I bought the 40% peroxide and the bleach powder sachets and set to it, with Hole's 'Plump' on full blast to get me pumped.  

Long story short after 2 attempts it went like this 


A dark ash blonde dye, an emergency trip to the salon to get rid of the frazzled ends and lots of purple shampoo later and it is looking relatively normal again.

I still want to take it lighter so I can get that punk ass blonde I love but I am biding my time and  giving it lots of tlc for a while.

Hanging on the (Mobile) Telephone

So I have a baby again and a dearth of spare time.  As such I find myself just reaching for my phone whenever I see something aesthetically pleasing or striking.  It takes seconds and usually that's all I have.  So I thought I'd share.  I might even make it a series - woo woo.  Just the stuff that happens you know, inbetween the mundanity.

(1) I love the colours in my new vintage dress and £1 beads  (2) Can't resist Master L's toes poking out of his blanket when he's asleep

Discovered this vintage shop with the weirdest tea room opposite our local park.  It was an insanely hot and bright sunny day outside and this a dimly lit room with no windows and a 
Victorian mannequin was quite the bizarre contrast

Bought this rainbow necklace and almost couldn't bring myself to open the pretty packaging it arrived in

Lunch at Jamie's Italian.  

Ghost signs on the streets of Liverpool.  I've become a little obsessed with these lately.  I'm the crazy lady who walks the streets pushing a pram and taking random pictures.

In other news, I've been watching back to back IT Crowd on Netflix and wishing I could give Graham Linehan a massive bear hug to say thanks for making me smile since I was 15, and especially for Douglas Renholm, Black Books and Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse

The Babysitter

My kids with their lifelong companion

Tuesday, 8 July 2014


A couple of weeks ago (before I changed my hair) the Mister took advantage of a quiet afternoon and snuck off work early to meet me and Mast L for lunch.  I wanted to visit the Georgian Quarter because my heart belongs to this part of the city.  We had lunch at this place and then took a wander around the local streets bathed in sunshine

I've had many a snifter in here, sadly not today

It was such a warm sunny day that for some reason my phone started taking photos with a blueish hue, which I didn't realise until I looked back at them.  I was a bit disappointed because it upsets the uniform look of this post but hey, my OCD, my problem.  I could lose myself wandering these streets, although the goth in me enjoys it more on misty winter days as opposed to at the height of summer
