Jellybean dinner

I've been sitting here staring at the screen wrecking my brain for some witty post title. Something snappy, catchy, maybe even poignant. Insert tumbleweed here.

Lacking inspiration I settled for the obvious. I am on a sugar high :) I like the pear ones best. They are AWESOME. I am currently finding the word awesome pretty awesome too. It is funny how I get hooked on words sometimes. Something I've never said before I start throwing it around like there is no tomorrow. Everything is excellent, neat, brilliant, now: Awesome.
Semantics. Curious and curiouser.











And guess what: Whoopie pies were for breakfast. I am gonna have a massive sugar hang-over tomorrow. :D

The photos are from last Saturday by the way - hence the Setico swan song :) Turns out prices for old-fashioned bikes have doubled over the past few years. They are currently "in" and I guess pricing has been adjusted upwards to reflect this. Not an amount of money I am willing to spend on wheels. Bleh!

I did find a 1980s Raleigh Caprice in good nick though - what I'd think of as an old ladie's bike. Metallic green. Just my cup of tea :) It is awful rainy today but I'll show you soon :)

Hat: ex Mom's
Sweater: Supermarket
Cardi: Charity shop
Dress: Echoo
Skirt: modcloth
Boots: eBay

    You look great, sugar-hyped or not! And I'm not surprised to hear about bike prices... there are so many damn vintage bicycles in London at the moment that I think they must have been importing them from all over the country...
