Things that made your auntie cheery today

I love Fridays, truly I do, best day of the week for me usually. But today, oh my mercies, aunties wee cup of happiness overfloeth.

My morning got off to the best start as when I woke up it was sheeting down with rain and I didn't have to get up and go out. Indeed I snuggled back down with a humungous mug of coffee and some of my preferred porn, aka The White Company Christmas brochure, they have 20% off dresses and tunics this week, so it'd be rude not to really - auntie has ordered THIS

I proceeded downstairs still fully jammied up and topped up the caffiene levels and proceeded to source flights for an upcoming secret jolly. So far so good.

Then my lovely, lovely friend LOOKING FOR BLUE SKY sent me this



Now I defy you to watch this and not be cheery too. Incidentally, is it wrong that I now fancy John Barrowman as well? What is it with me and camp men? I started off with Alan Cumming, progressed to DT who is not the machoest (if it wasn't a word before when it gets typed in the blog of auntie it becomes one)and now John Barrowman.

Gawdonlyknows who it'll be next.

Brilliant innit? It made me smile in the wake of ranting about the utter crap Scotland's Greatest Album results - I mean I like the Proclaimers but jeezo

Nikkii - I've just gone and googled it, I'm a bit sad that some of the stuff I loved wasn't there but hey ho

So glad you liked it :) And I want the dress too, but it's black? Clearly I have a lot to learn about the White Company xx

auntiegwen said...

Next time you get married AG I expect that to be sung by the groom! and love that dress but need your bosoms to wear it, and where will the jolly be to??

Mrs Worthington said...

I reet enjoyed that. I think there is a self help group for white company addicts you know

C said...

Haha. You really just brightened my day with that video!!

Gigi said...

I LOVE that dress! It's gorgeous!

And that video raised my spirits immeasurably on this rainy, cold evening!

Wylye Girl said...

Love the video. Showed it to The Husband as he knows quite a lot of the people in it. The dress is fab. I only wish I could wear it.

I rather like your LBD and I also love John Barrowman in that guily pleasure kind of way. Saw him in 'Chicago' a few years ago; very talented.
Have to love that song too. If I show it to my man he'll start getting all nostalgic and teary like when he hears Flower of Scotland.

Sandi said...

So what do you say to ordering another of those dresses in an xs and sending it to me.......pwease (with big appealing eyes)
I love the Proclaimers and especially that song, thanks for posting it. Have fun on your jolly.
xx Sandi

Curry Queen said...

A Woman Of No Importance said...

auntiegwen said...

Libs - the next time I get married, eh? are you asking ?fair enough I say yes and you can choose the destination of the blog jolly

Mrs W - but first you have to admit you have a problem...

C - good, non? that's the clever Looking for Blue Sky that found it

Gigi - yep, sadly I will look like a pig in a frock in it but hey ho

WG - ah is that why you've never invited me round to yours? because the hubby knows people, I'll behave, go on ask me, pleeeeaaaasssseeeee

Trish - I do that too, and Scotland the Brave and many many other songs

Sandi - now if you weren't extra small I might have done but no my dear being an extra small is present enough for you my girl :) xx
