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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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!
