Is there anybody out there?

It would be nice if there is.

It has been two months since fin, and here I am again, because I'm wondering...if I resurrected the blog for a little while

(for the month of October in fact)

so that I could participate in Frocktober, to (hopefully) raise some money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, would you pop by and sponsor me?

Even though:

1. I hate having my photo taken - I'd rather go
    to the dentist. Fact.

2. the little voice of reason/common sense inside of me is
    saying: "Don't do it! You'll look like a dummy! You'll be


3. I'm pretty sure I don't even have thirty-one frocks in the first

since I've read about Frocktober, I just can't shake the idea that it's something I should be doing, from my head. It's stuck there like a chorus from an annoying song, or the interior of an awesome mid-century home I've seen for sale that I've fallen in love with. I know we'll never be able to buy it, but the more I try to forget it, the more I keep seeing our furniture (and us) looking perfectly at home in it! 

Right now, as I type this, I'm thinking I should get over myself and just do it! I should throw caution, my fragile ego, and my paint-stained tracky-dacks to the wind! And I will, but only if you guys are prepared to chuck some money at me and my frocks (I'm planning to sell some of the vintage numbers because after this I'll never, ever wear them again. Any money raised would also be donated)

I'd like to raise 1000 bucks (!)
Is this a big ask?
It's got a nice ring to it, and it's a useful, tidy sum, so that's what I'm aiming for.

Please let me know what you think, and I'll make my decision in the morning.

If it's a yes, I'll have to get my act together quickly. It's the 1st tomorrow!
OMG! What am I gonna wear, and who am I going to get to take my photos? (I've got a feeling volunteers round here are going to be thin on the ground...) Will my bum look big?

Dithering over the publish button, Kylie x  

there will probably be lots of pics taken from this angle!


Okay, I'm doing it. Get ready for a month of awkward photos!

Please sponsor me here.

Thank you x
