It’s Friday again! Hurrah! Was it good for you? The week, I mean? Mine went pretty fast, but I think that’s possibly cus weekends are much less fun for me than they were only a short time ago and I have to do mucho work on the house over the weekends.

I would never, in my wildest dreams, have thought that so much work could go into preparing a house for sale. I thought maybe a week or two of titivating and it’d be ready to go on the market, but no, it’s dragged on and on and I still think there is maybe a week or two of work to go. It’s crazy baby.

With this in mind – the much busier and less enjoyable schedule etc. – it seems I have slipped back a little onto the bad stuff – yeah, I’m talking about sugar.

I’ve not had sugar in my drinks since I was very small and I avoid using it as much as possible in cooking and baking. There’s one area, though, where I cannot avoid sugar when I indulge and that’s chocolate. There’s nothing like chocolate to make me feel I’m having a luxurious break.

Yesterday I ate some Cadburys (for ‘some’, read ‘at least twice the recommended daily allowance’) and answered the door to my neighbour before realising I had chocolate smeared over my face and down my chest. I have no idea how I managed to waste all that goodness, or spread it so widely, but I think the truth about my addiction is out.

Ok so I adore this new release from Blueberry. The Ime Dress is a beautifully made and textured light Summer dress and I just knew from seeing it that there were going to be many, many, pretty Summery blogs done with it on. My aim, therefore, was to show it in a slightly different light by coupling it with some funky accessories and making it adaptable to other seasons and scenes (man). I hope I’ve achieved that.

I got tram’s new G0616 hair from Uber and then got myself into a right two and eight. I shall explain. In the pack was an object named tram hair and another object named headband only. So I put them both on, it turned out with a lot of faffing about and resizing and moving things around, I still couldn’t get rid of a white underlayer… I was confused, tram is always so great. I thought about it some more and then took off the ‘headband only’ part to find – of course – that the original hair already had a headband attached and so I didn’t need to wear the headband only element at all, just use the HUD to recolour the white headband already on the hair. I’m not telling you this because there is a problem with it, I’m telling you cus there isn’t and if you are inclined to be as dopey as me, you might read this and avoid ten minutes of furrowing your beautiful brow.

Here’s some more pics (yes, sadly with both headbands, although I had sussed it before making the ‘jigging for the rigging’ video, below)…

And now for the ‘jigging for the rigging’ video, like Disco Lemonade.


  • Great post, Merri! Oh, I’m so addicted to chocolate, it’s ridiculous. I did give it up for over a year once, but then Easter came around and that was it – way too much temptation. It satisfies like nothing else 🙂

    • You gave it up for a whole year? What are you Moz? Some kinda saint? Easter kills me… they sell all the Easter Eggs cheap in the month before. By the time actual Easter gets here, I’m already far too guilty to enjoy it fully 😀
