Gallery Oldham - Fairies!

We went off to Oldham on Saturday (it should have been Lindisfarne this weekend but hey ho...), and found Gallery Oldham. And they had an exhibition of Samantha Bryan's fairies!

A lovely surprise for me :-)
The rest of the Gallery is well worth a look at as well.

The Fab Cafe in Manchester. Where I had a glass of wine and we watched the Tardis light up, last Sunday. :-)
And Waxy O'Connor's in the Print Works, where I had another glass of wine and we looked at the big dead tree in the middle of the pub. Also last Sunday.

Must try harder!

I keep doing things and then forgetting to post them.

There have been a handful of DC/79 gigs, I dyed my hair pink (it washed out after a bit), cooked a lot, went out for meals, the usual stuff. There are photos about the place which I will try and post when I can remember! I suspect old age is catching up with me, and I am now well into the "wandering into a room and forgetting why I am there" stage. Having said that, I have always been like that!

I currently have a cough, for which I am taking Allen's Pine and Honey Balsam, as its the least unnatural thing I can find, and honey and lemon on their own just weren't doing it. It is very effective but it tastes VILE. Really vile.

On the subject of all things natural, I treated myself to a book off Amazon with a gift voucher they sent me (for having an Amazon credit card). It was for £10.74, so I got a book about making natural beauty products. And last night I made the following:

Yoghurt, Honey and Oatmeal face mask.

1tbsp ground oatmeal (I bought Mornflake Oats, cos of their groovy new packaging, and then ground them up in a pestle and mortar)
1tbsp organic yoghurt
1tsp organic honey

Stir the lot up together and splodge all over your face for 15 mins (whilst in the bath) and then wash off with cool water.

I then ate what was left. :-)
