Fairy Tales in Bedlam

Once, in a place neither here nor there; a morose mistress was heard complaining that; "some days are pure "URGH" with a grey cloud on top".

On such days she would find it hard to shake the corruption of inertia from her brow. She would instead flounder in delirium amoungst her pillows and fall into the pages of a fairy tale compendium.


Hour after hour she whisperedd through the pages and gazed at the clouds that hung oustide the window.



If daydreaming was a paid occupation she would be a wealthy champion.
Sadly it is not and she has to wake up and go and earn some money for future adventures.

  10. It has been grey and dreary recently, the kind of weather that makes me want to stay inside and hibernate with pots of tea and a good book.

    Sadly, I had to go to work at the Evil Empire today, so I wore my 'He Stole My Kisses...' shiny fing and made my day that little bit sparklier and nicer.

  17. Beautiful pictures...I could never wear socks like that even though I visit that darn ol' gym every day and were on a diet of lettuce and wheatgrass-shakes only, so flaunt those legs!
