All The Way Down, She Was Up In The Air aka Every Wardrobe Mistress' Nightmare

So, the icon that is Madonna, fell over on stage in spectacular style.
At least she wasn't naked!

Lux wrote this song after being inspired by the Marcel Duchamp painting, Nude Descending a Staircase.
Apparently, the fall was caused by what could be called a 'wardrobe malfunction' I guess. Of the most awesome kind. Never mind Janet Jackson and her boob exposure, I mean, this was major!
Any one who works in 'wardrobe' must've felt sick at the sight of her struggling with those cape ties and then what followed.

And for all there would've been a gazillion rehearsals, which the tabloids were forever telling us about, the 'beauty' of 'live' performance shows the pitfalls that can occur.
Madonna was lucky. A dancer I worked with on my first professional job, several years later died from a brain  haemorrhage after falling off the stage into the orchestra pit. I know of another friend who fell into the pit, dusted himself off and got back on stage with not even a bruise...but it could have been so much worse.
To paraphrase what we would heckle to the opposing team players at the ice hockey -
"She fell over."
But she got back up and carried on. A true 'pro'.
Kudos to her!

Luscious, Lilac Locks

I did it!
I got out of the house and into the hairdressers!
Woop woop.
I had to cancel my opticians appointment last week. But today, after a half-decent night, (as opposed to a night of very little sleep punctuated with numerous trips to the loo!), I caught the bus into Jimmys' End. Not quite as far as the town centre, and only one bus, but still, I am chuffed to bits.
And to top it off, I have a fabulous new haircut and colour.
Double whammy!!

To The Light Of My Life

 A little Valentines' vignette or two.

The 2 pale blue hearts are made by Sharon at Shabby Polka Dots; the Union Jack one by Suzanne Heartsnkisses. The others are from Homesense ages ago.

The Christmas roses stay out to do a turn on the 14th February.
Note my 'Paris' wallpaper.
How very romantic!

Oh Mr B, I do love thee!!
