Winners and somethin’ ugly
So – apparently most of you know us pretty well!
The sweet little chick with her stylish graduating mortar board in the last post was indeed…
… one and the same as the proud Mama in this photo…
It’s hard to believe that the same doe-eyed creature in this old snap is the same – my little sister who has a newbie of her own (plus a ten-year-old who can CRACK a whip like nobodies business!). And the first person to guess right was… Leenie… Whoo-hoot!!
A little somethin’ is on it’s way to you in the mail.
I shall share that just what that little somethin’ is soon…
In the meantime…
I am burying this series of photos in this post (cause Lord knows I don’t want ‘em showing up on the previews) in answer to some enquiries as to the health of my toes. Remember when this happened? Well, it’s taken a few weeks, but as I was driving around in the truck two days ago, I had three minutes to myself. So I photographed my foot. As you do. And I am posting them here. Because I am nuts.
WARNING #1 : my feet are ugly. This is not a call for reassurance, it is a documented fact.
WARNING #2: my feet are dirty in these photos. I had been walking around paddocks in my thongs/flip flops opening and closing gates for musterers. I know. Shoulda been wearing boots. For all KINDS of reasons…. *sigh*
WARNING #3: I have not had a pedicure since the Melbourne Cup (two weeks ago). I HAVE had a bath since then, but it does not look like it.
WARNING #4: the last couple of shots here are a bit graphic. If you have a weak stomach or thing for pretty toes, please stop reading now. (Mum, this means you!)
Oh dear… needing moisturiser and spakfiller STAT…
Oh Lord… how come the auto focus works beautifully when I desperately need a soft filter…
Hmmm… does the fact that the white stuff on my big toenail is actually sticky from the bandaid that was holding it in place make it MORE or LESS disgusting?
Morals to the story:
1. Never drop a bottle of chardonnay on your toe. (It’s much nicer taken internally)
2. Never take photos of the result. (I nearly made myself crook looking at these)
3. And never post the pictures for the world to see. (Waiting patienly for the ‘unfollow’ stampede)
When will I ever learn??
Going to hide in my bedroom now…
