fairy lights and rakes

fairy lights, fairly normal, very pretty little things. i like them, and i think they like me as they twinkle and wink whenever i walk by. what i always wonder at this time of year is why do we only put them up at this time of year? it seems quite strange and almost shamefull, they really are very pretty yet spend half the year cooped up in a cupboard, so ive made a new years resolution to keep them up.

ive always been a fan of nice lighting, in my boudoir youd find some sticks with lights on them, some pretty little flowers with lights in the centre and twinkly stringy pink lights, god sounds like a right nightmare of a girly room doesnt it? but its not
why would we spend our indoor hours under the glare of a 60 watter, when we could bask in the simple light of a fairy. gosh, i hope i dont sound too off my rocker, and i expect any men reading this will not read much further, but too write this dirt blog gives you freedom to write anything way random, so i am.

Anyway im thoroughly fed up with all this christmas shite, but i have to tell you about my best prezzie. well mine and gee’s actually. from affy, so affys makes us close his eyes as he hasnt wrapped them, in my hands i feel something cold and heavy, lo and be-hold its a bloody rake! brilliant, now i can rake the track to my hearts content. gee gets a gate spring. like a spring to hold your gate either open or closed! he’s yet to figure out which one as if its held open he’ll struggle to shut it, and if its held closed he’ll struggle to open it. so thats that.


also i bought a mans bike the other day, the ttr still lives, but has been totally rlegated. bless it. so we’ve been going on full on missions on our break from work over christmas, its so wicked riding the yz after the little ttr. its so freakin fast and scary. you can actually get up anything on the enduros now, nothing stands in her way, she pulls my arms near out of her sockets in her eagerness.
the only trouble is when im totally stuck upside down with her on top of me, its so hard to get out cos she is pretty heavy. but im hoping ill be massively ripped soon. actually theres another trouble, i havent mustered the courage to do an enduro on her yet, been ducking out left right and centre. so i hope you all had a wicked xmas and new year, personally cant wait to start racing…..bring it.
