Then I decided to join in. Yeah. Brace yourself:
Our little back garden backs on to a woodland path. It's really quite beautiful and the view of the late autumn leaves on the trees turning from yellow to orange to red-brown has genuinely inspired me this month, so I decided to take a photo of it for this category. Balls though. All the bloody leaves fell off somewhere between the last time I looked out of the window and now. But wait...you can still see an autumnal orange glow can't you? Yes you can. It's a horrid orange brick new build estate that sprang up at some point over the summer where once there were rolling fields. More insipid than inspirational. Get out of my view.
2. Something I Made
Ooh, I have a valid entry for this one! I made Rory these PJ bottoms this month from some bargain fabric that I picked up. He is most impressed with them. "Look at my funky whales" he says, waving a pyjama clad leg at the postman. (Who taught him the word 'funky'? It was clearly not me). It's good that he likes them because I have so much 'funky whale' material left that he'll be wearing homemade whale pyjamas every year until he goes to university at this rate. Here he is modelling them. The expression on his face clearly says "do one mother, I am very busy with my stormtroopers and want no part in your latest ridiculous venture".
My attempt to scale the ironing mountain this morning was scuppered by half the cast of Star Wars congregating on the ironing board. Notable here are Luke Skywalker and Han Solo engaged in a homo-erotic dry humping frenzy. That sea killer thing can stay there for good; minutes before I took the photo it was going "RAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH" a lot and biting my leg. I had to break off from ironing my stripy top after a particularly vicious attack which caused me to lose focus and nearly scorch an ewok.
A nice selection of uppers and downers. I have abandoned my beloved gin for something slightly more festive. It's nearly Christmas, after all.
My newly wrecked bathroom nicely demonstrates a pleasing array of textures. The Aldi bathroom wipes set this off to perfection.
