Things I've been mulling over

So I've not blogged for a while but I have been mentally blogging- does anyone else do that?

I thought I'd share some random thoughts to keep things ticking over. I am being VERY playful at the moment but haven't uploaded any pics off my camera until then. Forgive me, and accept this humble offering in the meantime.

1. Dye your hair
It's a season change and I read somewhere that in their entire lives, women average 3 hair colours. So if we count the colour we're born with and grey? That's one dye job. Hello? Life's too short. Play with your palette.

For the record I just went purple!

2. Find a companion who enjoys you playing.
This doesn't have to be romantic (although this thought struck me when my beau was watching me knit) but find someone who just let's you be. All our friends, loved ones and partners should be like this but often we don't have time to be playful. Having someone who actively encourages you is very, very important.

3. Play fancy dress.
In the last month or two I've built a robot costume at a disco, dressed as a bedouin tribes woman and tried on cocktail dresses just for funsies with friends. I regret the day I lost my fairy wings somewhere in a move once; doing the washing up in wings and marigolds is so much fun. Next month I'm vintage shopping and hosting a Gaga party. Dressing up rocks!

4. Make time for your Mum
She makes the best scones. Well, mine does. Whoever is the best cook in your life- make time for them. Trust me on this.

And now for the best ponder?

5. Why do you always get a sudden hankering for chocolate when you don't have any OR any change in your wallet to get some?
