The Kitten & The Blonde Boy

 

A heavy fabric coat hangs on the doorknob, cowboy brooch fastened on the collar,
Turn the latch,
Once inside, you will drown in the clutter held within,
Eeyore sits sentry on the wardrobe, books are encased delicately behind glass;
Uglies hidden in a lower cabinet, the beauties sitting proud on the shelves,
A tall and blonde boyfriend sits on the bed frame,
Absorbed in the videogame he avidly plays,
Carefully colour coordinated DVD cases stand boldly in a bookcase,
Propped up against the wall: they are standing soldiers,
A kitten, black and white and inquisitive, watches you,
As you turn about the damp, chipped, white walls,
She is full of light and she dances about your feet,
Catching your laces as you wander about the room,
What a sight! The mess, the clutter, the bounding boulders of dirty clothes piled  high!
You sit on the bed, with the kitten and the blonde boy,
You lie back and watch the swirls on the ceiling,
You are happy, with the kitten and the blonde boy by your side,
Next year will be very strange indeed.

 

Fancy Dress, New Year

As it was new years last night we thought it’d be a good idea to do everything in style; and what says style and sophistication more than classic fancy dress? ;D

We enjoyed it so much, even little Mal joined in. Here she is, dressed exquisitely as a ladybug!

We had a great night, filled with chanting down to that pivotal midnight strike on the clock, or watch, or digital phone time to drinking and playing card games until 3 o’ clock in the morning!

Happy New Years, to anybody who reads this. May your year in 2014 be incredibly special.
