With total disregard for those Englanders amongst us, who don’t celebrate things like Halloween, the Finish The Sentence Friday crowd have all gone out Trick-or-Treating, and left me here twiddling my thumbs. Fortunately my pal Jen came to the rescue, and offered me a suh-WEET guest-post spot over at her blog ‘I’m Dancing In The Rain’ – come and dance with us, and see what went on when she asked me to write about ‘The View From Here‘

Last weekend was a GLORIOUS celebration of my Mum’s birthday, with a family meal out at one of our favourite places. And in spite of managing to get totally lost and NOT find the massive, awesomerockin’ tree-house that Niece and Neff wanted to play on, we did find some gorgeous sights, and played amongst the autumn leaves, trees and sopping grass to our hearts content.

In other news, my outfit plans for the weekend’s party are going well – the dress has arrived, and the fur cape is still fabulous and my friends have variously condoned, cautioned against, advised, gleefully endorsed and faintly ridiculed the remainder of my outfit choices (thanks friends) and I think I now know how it will all end up. More of that on Sunday, but for now, have a gratuitous cloakshot, because it’s SO amazing…
I had a lot of fun with my smartphone this week, actually, including selfie-ing my trial run of the dilation drops I use on patients at work (I’m a retinal screener IRL) and YES they sting (oh, that’ll be because they include hydrochloric acid to digest the outer layer of the eye, so I can take good photos of the retina on my fancy-schmancy camera, yo!) but not so bad that I think they deserve the extreme reaction they get from some people…
And then just for fun today, because it’s Halloween, I thought it’d be cool to take a pic of the aftermath of the crazy blue sweets I got given. A. May. Zing.

So just for them, no matter their orientation, THIS, my lovelies, is how it is:
Join us on Saturday for more shenanigans…
