Girl on Film

I don't know what I must have looked like but due to the horrendous conditions up here, the farm has turned into a mud bath and I went arse over tit whilst trying to make my way back to the house.  Wellies unable to grip, sunk and slid until I eventually lost my footing and having nothing to hold onto, allowed my hands to take the fall.  I was a cross cookie, muttering, "for fuck's sake" under my breath at the mud. When I got back to the house I smiled, realising no one had seen me and the local paper were probably taking photographs elsewhere at that particular time.

My mum arrives on Thursday armed with bags of food and Easter eggs.  I only hope she doesn't bring her ivory sheepskin jacket and remembers we live on a farm.  Every time I look in the mirror I think about that hair dye I desperately need to apply and recollect my days as a townie when I used to take pride in my appearance.  Now I just have a shower and let the mirror do the talking.  I'll let you know when it says I'm the fairest of them all.  Might be a while.

Before I go, you might have noticed the MADS icon on my side bar.  If any of you lovely people are feeling kind would you click on it and nominate me for the Blog Writer Award, pleeease.

  7. Falling does the most damage to my pride I find... However, my right hip is still playing up after a fall in Asda the other week. :'( but it's still my pride that hurts the most.



    Hope you have a great Easter with your family! x

  8. That sounded like the build up to a perfect VLOG.... "CRYSTAL COMES A CROPPER". I'm disappointed!

  11. Good luck in MAD awards:) Lol at your Mum bringing her ivory jacket, but as long as she brings plenty of chocolate to restock your chocolate drawer, thats the main thing. If she does bring the jacket take some photos of it after a day in the mud :D:D Jen.

  13. Thanks for the morning laugh. I know it's at your expense, but you made me picture it all so vividly. I'll be more kind in my thoughts of shepherds the next time I'm picking vegetable matter out of the wool I spin and knit.

    Best to remind your mother she needs boots, not high heels.

  14. You got my nomination. Also nominated you for the Authour Blog Awards. Hope you win both.

    Look at the bright side, at least the mud broke your fall.

    Take care!

  15. So, we're not going to see you on You've Been Framed then? That is a shame.
    Thanks for brightening my day!

  18. Arse over tit is something I don't hear nearly often enough!

    No mud here just hot baked clay and just to rub it in a bit more...I'm off to the hair dressers for a dye job.

    Now all I have to do is figure out what American's have for Easter traditionally as lamb is virtually unobtainable and generally considered to be animal cruelty - yum!

  19. Oh yes FFS! I hear it often! lol!
