And now for something slightly different (lifted from FB) – tiz the season for silly games so here goes:
My Crafting Superhero name – Funky Stamping Crusader
Maggie rummaged through the ball gown rails in her local charity shops and found this little number – a bit of upcycling and she was off …
A Panto was coming to town
Maggie donned her best gown
She was going for an audition
For the Cinderella position
And didn’t want to let herself down.
The producers were very impressed
And thought that she was the best
Her smile so disarming
She won over Prince Charming
And outshone all of the rest.
Maggie’s career had come very far
From her lap dancing days in the bar
How she loved being on stage
But missed the large wage
She could get from the cash in her bra!

Here we are again with another Silly Saturday.
Judy is writing a series of Christmas Limericks at the moment – just right to read out as an antidote to all those cracker jokes.
Have a wonderful time, whatever you get up to.
Maggie’s was looking her best
Kitted out in her fanciest dress
She practiced her prancing
For Strictly Come Dancing
The Shells were very impressed!
She really got in the groove
Performing the American Smooth
Her waltz was divine
And foxtrot sublime
Maggie knew how to move!
There will be no more tits and arse
Maggie was a woman of class
Her lap dancing days
Though an interesting phase
Was now a thing of the past!

Judy and I have joined forces to celebrate the Strictly Come Dancing final with Maggie for today’s Silly Saturday.
Pop across to Judy’s blog to read her cheeky Christmas Limericks.
This yoga is really quite good
Sometimes it’s been misunderstood
When feeling depressed
Or when life gets you stressed
It can help to lighten your mood
It can make you look and feel great
Helps you focus and concentrate
The different types of positions
Help some medical conditions
There’s even one for the prostate!
Those earthlings have got it all sussed
This yoga lark is a must
You don’t have to be wealthy
To keep yourself healthy
With a body strong and robust.

Feeling stressed in the build up to Christmas?
The Aliens are back with a bit of timely advice. They have had a rethink about yoga and are limbering up to get fit and ready for the excesses of the festive season.
Judy and I have joined forces again to bring you another pebble and shell Silly Saturday.
I hope you manage to fit in a bit of silliness this Saturday.
I will be taking Big Bro and Little Bro to watch their Dad, number one son, play hockey. I spent many years on the side lines watching first my brother and husband, then my children play various sports, so it will be a trip down memory lane – it is going to be verrrrrrrry cold though, so I’m not sure how long we will last. I’m taking drawing supplies in case we spend most of the time in the club house.
Let me introduce you to Fred, my perfect date for my Birthday Weekend.
The photo above shows him getting ready for the Frida Kahlo party.
Do you all remember or know about Homepride Fred?
My sister has a thing for Fred! She has been collecting Homepride Freds in all their many and various forms for years. Earlier in the year she started photographing him at events she went to – I just loved the silliness of this, it obviously runs in the family. She took him to Chelsea Flower Show, The Dorchester Hotel, Royal Ascot …. and others – they had a fun summer together! But Fred had been back on the shelf for far too long, so I invited him to join me as we pranced around London in flowery headdresses.
Our first date: dinner on Friday night …
The gorgeous horse was made by ceramicist Jane Muir.
Then off we went to the Battersea Arts Centre to meet up with my daughter and niece.
My daughter had made me this fab card with a perfect quote she had found, written inside
After an afternoon nap, whilst we had fun spreading smiles and sunshine meandering along the Northcote Road, Fred was ready for a bit of drum practice before hitting London’s Jazz Scene
Each November London holds a Jazz Festival right across the city.
We were off to the 606 Club, what a place – it is like stepping back in time. As you let yourself in through the black metal grill and scaled the steep bare wooden steps down to the tunnel corridor below, you could be entering an illicit 1950’s/60’s crime den, it felt like being in a film.
After a fabulous meal and an evening of virtuoso jazz performances Fred met Trisha Clowes, acclaimed saxophonist, at the bar.I don’t think she had a clue who Fred was but she played along and joined in the fun!
Fred had a great night
and as you can see the partying continued as we danced to old 60s and 70s cool and groovy hits playing on the Juke Box.
Fred was a bit the worse for wear the next morning
But after a couple of Paracetemol he was ready to go to Covent Garden where they seem to be taking inspiration from the Tate Modern and suspending large shiny spheres overhead
and then time for a walk in the park before meeting up with friends for tea
more of Fred’s deliciously arty tea on another Silly Saturday …….
Are you doing anything silly this weekend?
Judy and I present to you another very Silly Saturday…… Ta Dah!
The Halloween party was in full swing
On the beach, in the middle of the night
The Shelleys were doing the ‘Moonwalk’
Under its bright, silver light
Later, when they got hungry
There was plenty for them to eat
Ghoulash, or stake and chips main course
Key Slime Pie or Pustard for sweet.
Drinks or course were a-plenty
Snot chocolate or a nice cup of pee
Maybe some whine would be better
For their Halloween festivities.
They all held hands as they walked home
Dressed as they were, all in white
I bet that if you had seen them
They would have given you a hell of a fright!

I think Judy has excelled here!
Did you enjoy Halloween?
The Shelleys and the Stones certainly did ……. murder on the dance floor!
Snot Chocolate – eeuuuuuwwwwwwww!!!!!!!
