This past winter I got it into my head that neutrals were a needful thing. As a result I got me a corduroy skirt in a nondescript colour: You know, not quite khaki, not quite beige and definitely not anywhere near cream. I wore it a few times (here for instance) but soon enough I started giving the skirt the stink eye in passing and begrudged it the wardrobe space it was taking up. The charity shop bag loomed..
Machine dye to the rescue: I'd only used hand dye before - which is messy at best, so I was really impressed with this alternative. Easy as pie, no mess and a brand spanking new purple skirt!
In personal news, yesterday our kettle exploded (okay, "explode" is misleading, but the loud POP! POP! sounds and fried circuitry stench was pretty spectacular and warrants the misuse of the word) and my push bike is in the shop (oh, wobbly rear tire.. You made me into a pedestrian once again!).
Musically, right now I am really taken with Walk Off the Earth's cover of Somebody That I Used To Know and Pearl and The Beard's Oh, Death! and Sweetness. I've still not heard the whole new Black Keys album but Lonely Boy is all kinds of awesome. Plus the video has the most brilliant dancing.
Weekend ante portas! Make it a most excellent one :)
