Happy New Year! 2014…yay, a new number. Woop!
January 1st is traditionally the day where we all rush to announce our intentions to change or improve ourselves, or to ‘mix it up a little’ (yeah, I know all the lingo – I am so down with ‘da kids’). I would like to break with tradition a little by announcing that I do not intend to change myself – I want to be more ‘me’ again.
A lot happened in 2013, including The Big Move’, and now that I am back in the UK, I realise just how un-me I have become. So this year, there will be more fun, more daftness, and yes, I’m afraid, more puns. I will do my best to ensure that at least some of the puns are new, if that helps at all? If not, I am planning to make more chocolate truffles, so I could always post some to you all in recompense.
So yes…the blog title. I finally got round to photographing some pieces of jewellery which I made ages ago. And by ages, I mean almost 6 months ago. That’s…well, it’s a disgrace, frankly. The earrings were featured in this blog post, for goodness sake: https://kittyballistic.com/2013/07/pack-all-things.html
Anyway, the sun was shining so I made good use of our newly-tidied conservatory (I know, we have a conservatory now!) to take some photos. So the first of the earrings to be listed in my shop are these delights:
Anyway, as a special New Year’s treat, I will leave you with a choice of earworms. You can either have the leotardinous (well then, it should be a real word) Beyonce’s song which was cruelly mashed and diced to make the title of this blog post, or you can have a Gloria Gaynor anthem. Beyonce’s video has fantastic dance moves, but Gloria’s has a disco beat and massively unimpressed women loitering on a staircase. Plus, it’s Gloria. And the lyrics are perhaps more suited to the start of a new year.
