There are hardly words to describe how much I’ve wanted to be photographed on this awesome playground ride. Finally, I’ve done it!
My primary challenges in using this location were the local kids. If I encroached on their territory, how would they take their revenge? Catcalls? Torture? A Chinese burn? In the end, my predicament was resolved by hitting the park nice and early, when any self-respecting kid would still be under the duvet.
Several people passed as these photos were taken, but only one woman commented: ‘You’re at work early, intcha?’ Work?! What does she think I do for a living? Grand Tester of Playground Rides For The General Council of Joyfulness? (Hey! That’s not a bad idea…)
I’m wearing my red spotty Sorbetto, blogged about here last September.
The skirt is shop bought, but I love it so much I’m sorely tempted to trace and duplicate it. It really is just two oblongs with small hip pleats – oh, and a line of buttons running down one side. The striped leggings are from Uniqlo and I strongly recommend them. Affordable, nice soft cotton, comfortable, and non-bagging. What more can you ask for?
I have to go now… Um, the local kids have spotted me and they’re, they’re running, I think. One of them’s shaking a fist. Mummy, help! The big kids are picking on me!
