Before I sign-off for a while,
(I will pop back down the track to show you our kitchen reno Mel - and our bathroom and laundry when they're finally finished too! I've decided to continue blogging although somewhat sporadically, instead of out and out quitting like I did a couple of months ago. I've really enjoyed 'chatting' to you all again, and I'd miss you if I stopped completely)
I would like to say thank-you to all of the lovely people who sponsored my Frocktober effort. They are (in no particular order):
Gillian, Lea, Jay, Sally, Rachel, Donna, Anita, Fiona, Sian, Patti, Annie, Claire (NZ), Leisa, Helga, Hannapat, Rebecca, Vanessa, Sarah (WA), Bernice, Tania, Julianne, Nelly (Vic), Angie, Nadya, Jane, Linda, Imogen, Mel, Max, Terry and Maryse, Daisy, Claire (UK), Nelly (WA), Gaye, Pippa, Sally, Bron, Carmel, Anne, Sandy, Sarah, Sue, Tove, Dana, Curtise, Gaye (my sister), Woolfy, Tam, Vicki, Zara, Tanya, Claire O, Adelaide (my gorgeous daughter), Vicky, Megan, Al, Loo and Anth.
I hope I haven't missed anyone. Please let me know if I have and I will add your name to the list.
Posing in front of my Dad's broad bean crop in my tutu-esque first holy communion dress, 1972. I got in so much trouble for getting my socks dirty.
I would also like to thank:
the frock shoppers: Lea, Julianne, Allana, Vicky and Em.
my gorgeous Guest Frocksters: Georgia-Rose, Nelly, Curtise, Vanessa, Helga, Julianne, Donna, Dana, and Sue.
my beautiful Prom Queens: Al, Carmel and Pippa.
My sister Tricia and I, frocked-up for flower girl duties, 1971.
the sharers: ace fellow bloggers for spreading the word and sharing a link back to mine: Julianne, Donna, Pippa, Linda, Carmel, Vanessa, Curtise, Claire, Gillian, Sally, Anne, Georgia-Rose, Tove, Al and Eilis.
and my photographers (sometimes make-up artistes): Anth, Adelaide and Annabel.
So Frocktober's done and dusted.
Wearing a frock a day and dabbing a bit of lippy on was easy. Having my photo taken (and publishing it) was (and still is) challenging, but your supportive comments and generous donations made it much easier. At the end of the day we raised a lot of money for research into ovarian cancer. 2000 bucks. We did good, and I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks guys x

I'll end with this quote from Annie Hall (1977):
"Love is too weak a word for what I feel - I luuurve you, I loave you, I luff you"
Alvy Singer (Woody Allen)
p.s. if you decide to frock-up for Frocktober next year, I've got your back, okay.
