School was back today so it was just me and Joe again and you know, Joe and I only have one term home together before Summer holidays and then he starts school! With kindergarten and swimming lessons we only have Monday's as a gallivanting day and in fact we only have TEN Mondays left! Yeah, I know! No pressure!
Today we played with the mirrors - check out Joe's face!
Then we had a picnic in the park.
The frock is TEAL satin (which fascinated Joe and he couldn't stop touching it!) and, as Melbourne weather did not comply with the forecast mid twenties temperature, I donned a beaded cardi (had too long to remember where I got it!) and little fur stole (given to me recently as a gift). I also wore my faux versace tights (from the sock shop), orange bobby socks (from the kids drawer!) and black patent leather shoes (from Savers)
Joe was the photographer!
Stay tuned for some frockfabularse (to use a Helga-ism)fundraising fun.
And in case you don't know what this frocking is all about it is to raise money for The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Early detection is the key. Unlike many other cancers there is no early detection test. Consequently ovarian cancer is often diagnosed in its late stages and only 20%-30% of women will survive beyond five years of diagnosis. In comparison, survival rates increase to 80-100% when ovarian cancer is detected and treated early.
We need this research for all of our mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, nieces, sister in-laws and sister out-laws! We need it for ourselves!

THANKS to everyone who has donated so far!
