On the morning of Day 14 I realised it was too nice a day to spend it indoors being screen zombies, so I bundled up the mini-photographer and took her off for a day out, me wearing an old, old Salvos favourite frock and Converse sneakers.
In a lovely co-incidence we ran into Brenda of 13acres, who I had met last week at the fancy Frocktober cocktail party. Folks, for her Frocktober efforts this year she is selling Frocking Good Cards featuring her photography work, with images of a woman wearing frocks in the north east Victorian countryside. They’re gorgeous cards suitable for lots of occasions. I’ve ordered a pack and I recommend you get over there and order one too.
After the market we went and caught up with some friends at the Happy River Café, where we enjoyed some totem tennis over our lunch – luckily I was wearing sporting shoes for the occasion.
After lunch we had a good game of hide and seek. In this pic I’m hiding behind a tree and you can see the mini-photographer seeking me in the background.
And here, she’s trying to teach me some Spanish dance moves. We need a bit more practice. Ole!After hide and seek we wanted to play more games so we took ourselves off to Timezone and played arcade games and won trashy stuff.
Finally we had worn ourselves out and we headed home where I counted up the donations in my jar from selling the rest of the bickies and taking donations in exchange for requests on Friday night, and we had collected $138.30! That went straight to my donation page. Then I quickly re-charged my personal batteries with an extra-strong power pack, and changed into frock two for the day.
I DJ Oily Shoesed my way over the The Park for good music (and some bad music) and good times in this Hell Bunny frock which I didn’t get a proper full-length pic of (but if you really want to see it, you can see it on last year’s Day 28 blog post).
And before I knew it, Day 14 was over and I was sneaking in at home in the wee small hours of Day 15.
