FOWC with Fandango — Experiment

As a teenager, I experimented with makeup. I looked like a clown or a radish when I tried foundations and blusher, the eye shadows I bought were on a stick and creased in a thick line, lipstick never stayed on, and mascara always joined my eye lashes together. I don’t own any at all now, and haven’t bought any for over twenty years.

Experiments in the kitchen happen a lot of the time, and not making home made bombs!
If something doesn’t quite work out, if it’s sweet, it gets covered in custard and labelled a  ‘Di Surprise’.
If it’s savoury, I might be able to disguise it with pastry or rice and a sauce. Nothing is wasted.  Cooking stuffing balls in the frying pan works!

I experiment with cards all the time and still remember the dreadlocked snowman I sent to my Mum when I first started making them and how she laughed when his hair fell off when she opened the envelope! It was truly gross, but everyone had a laugh and I was certainly not offended! I never used tinselly bits again and now extra careful with the thickness of some of them as it costs more in postage.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hehe! I remember the blue eye shadow craze! I though we all looked like angry monkeys flashing blue eyelids to warn off enemies! That and the white lipstick! We did look like death warmed over!
