Another present, I wish.

Just to get me into the swing of it being June already I have this lovely drop from the 2013 American Gem Traders Awards.  It's from Samuel Getz Designs in Miami, Florida and I would get on a plane to buy this and you know what I think about flying. The metal is platinum, the pendant is a 50,15 carat mixed-cut, pear-shaped Morganite accented with round, marquis and pear-shaped pink Sapphires and diamonds. I love marquis shaped anything so I love the way the diamonds and sapphires echo the pendant drop. This is a definite on my 'Drool List', near the top or over if the Morganite was detachable to wear with a pearl necklace. 

Crisis over with mother. Now I'm not thinking about granddaughter number one who jetted off to Europe Tuesday morning for two months.  Surprise phone call on Monday morning, she decided to leave from Melbourne so she could say goodbye to grandparents. I thought she had lost far too much weight but she's been in the gym learning self defence for this trip. She also worked her flights so she had no more than one hour lay-overs when re-fueling.  Good thing too since one place is not good for young exotic looking women.  If  I'd had more time I'd have been up making bags to put over her head, as it was I had to keep myself in check and not offer her several head scarves just in case. She's taking notes on what the flight attendants do while going through her French lessons on the plane.  Mother lit up like a Christmas tree when we walked in and the visit did her the world of good.  As for my former daughter-in-law, she still retains the crown of Bitch Queen of the Universe. There are very few who would come up to her level of pure bitchery. (spellcheck's telling me there's no such word, well there is now)

I have finally cleaned up the study enough to switch on the little oil column heater and lovely it is not to sit here like last year with blankets and cape on. I've even finished the ironing from last summer.  Picked up my new glasses and well worth the $70 for OPSM to put nose pads on the plastic frames I could never wear. It's a new thing for eyes like mine that need the lens a certain distance away to focus. Keep something long enough and it becomes useful.

I am so not looking forward to the election. If the politicians would look positive regardless of how they feel, it might go a lot better.  Mooning around and packing up the office now is nothing but a self fulfilling prophecy.  Get off your backsides and get out and meet the people even if they hate your guts, make them change their opinion.  Why bother, I'm talking to politicians although there's a ray of sunshine, I believe our favourite dipstick is running again, Hi, Pauline, out for another money grab. Now I've made myself sick just thinking about her. I have never been a swinging voter but this year I'm swinging north south west and east because who ever gets in will be twit knuckle one month later.

Snap on the election front. I even saw that the lovely Pauline had described herself as 'the red head that everyone likes and trusts'!!! On that basis, I am obviously a no-one because I do neither.
I am glad that the latest mother crisis is over - and how lovely that she left from Melbourne. I hope it peeved the Bitch Queen.

I am sure you have heard it before, but it matters little who you vote for, you always get another politician.

I thought I'd seen that redhead on TV last night. Not Julia, the other one...
That pink pendant is the perfect shade to wear with my pyjamas on days when I don't bother getting dressed.

I need to pick my new specs up from the opticians. Thanks for the reminder, Witchy.

EC, she's only in it for the money, if she gets a percentage of votes, it's money in the bank. Besides she's losing that 'dewy freshness' that silly old men loved and voted for.

Andrew, you are so right but even John Howard is looking like a genius besides some of this mouldy lot.

River, I knew I'd turn you into a princess sooner or later, a necklace with jimjams, decadent.

MiLord, are they the ones with the little wipers to keep your curls off the lens?

Actually, it turns out they're rubbish. I'm not impressed. They've put the bridge too far up so I can only see out of the bottom half which is supposed to be my 'reading only' focal distance, so now I can't see anything unless I perch them on the tip of my nose and hope they don't fall off.

JahTeh said...

MiLord, wasn't it fortunate that nature looked ahead and gave you such a wonderfully sized snoz just right for rubbish specs.

Brian Hughes said...

I must admit when I was being fitted for them the optician asked: "Whereabouts on your nose do you usually wear them?" I told her to take her pick and she said: "It's a bit difficult, there's such a lot to choose from."

JahTeh said...

MiLord, how rude of her but then what can you do with the peasants that seem to be everywhere. I do like the specs though, I've seen the photo and like the way you've airbrushed out the wrinkles.
