Okay, I am still staying incognito ... so I have blurred out the background and blocked off my face. I wasn't going to personalise this blog... but hell.. this is me. I cannot help it, I wanted to share this with you as although I found the comparison very disturbing, it also gave me a giggle.
The weather is dangerously cold here, we could open the garden to the public to practice both Bobsleigh and Ice skating. Stepping outside you are literally taking your life in your hands, I have to wear my walking boots everywhere, but the animals are dependant on me, I have to go and give them fresh water as it freezes within hours .. so here I am above, dressed to feed the animals. I am wearing my warmest coat I own.. my coat of death, I may get a lot of hate mail now from anti fur supporters. Frankly at this moment in time, I am enjoying wearing the cousins of the bastard fox that got my hens this summer.
As I hobbled out of the house with my jug of luke warm water.. and caught a glimpse of my reflection in the window.. I was reminded of the haunting image of 'Little Edie" from the film "Grey Gardens" .. its a film I have been meaning to watch for ages, a 1975 documentary about a mother and daughter sharing their lives in an a dilapidated house in the East Hampton, New York. A very up market area, they were the Aunt and cousin of the late Jackie Kennedy. I live in an old house and often wonder what the future would hold, should I be left alone..
I think I have just had a glimpse ..
An eccentric, batty old lady, still attempting, desperately to be glamorous...with a white recycling bag filled with empty Absolut bottles.
My image gave the dog a laugh anyhow
