I've been racking what little is left of my brain for an appropriate way to celebrate. I considered chugging margaritas, dancing on the inside, face planting in a large soft mud cake, or, even doing a streak through the lines of shrieking fans outside the opening night of the new Harry Potter movie. Now whilst a medicinal margarita and a cake of the chocolate persuasion are highly likely, I thought it would be nice to give a little something back to the lovely bunch of readers that have stuck by me despite my obviously increasing insanity.
It's GIVEAWAY time!!!!!!!
I've thought long and hard about what would be an appropriate prize for such an auspicious occasion and such discerning readers. Of all my posts, there is one that stands out for the joy it seemed to give others. Even a year later I'm still getting comments, both here and on FB. I also love my shoes even though I am unable to walk in them. Just to glimpse their glittery goodness out of the corner of my eye brings me great happiness. And, as the more astute of you may have noticed, a picture from that post now adorns my header.
My tutorial on making Dorothy Shoes unearthed a desire that seems to have lain hidden in the hearts of women (and not a few men) the world over. Glittery red shoes are the path to true happiness. There is magic in them there shoes, and that magic must be shared.
*I also find it highly entertaining that my little post which contains information about unicorn farts has ended up on the Vogue forums.
Hello my pretties.

PS Thanks for all the well wishes during my recent tussle with the flu. I think the delightful phlegm cement is finally starting to move off my lungs and I am hoping to attempt a full day out of bed in the next few days. Brain may take a bit longer to de-fog as evidenced by my recent new phone debarkle.
Me: "It says that the temp is going to be 11 to 32, that can't be right?"
Youngest: "No Mum, that's the time".
Youngest: walks away shaking head at my growing stupidity.
One step closer to the use of safety scissors. Sigh.
No this song doesn't really have anything to do with the post, well unless you like shoes a little too much. Not judging......much. It's just an old favourite and it's my birthday, so there.
