Popping my head in to let you all know I’m still alive and muddling through. Glad you all loved Miss Hannah’s photos in my last post. She’s really rather fabulously talented, don’t you think? She’s just bought a Flickr pro account, so do go and check out her sets over there – you won’t be disappointed!
So what’s new with me. Well the kitty is improving, though it was over a week until some signs of healing appeared. Fingers crossed it’s plain sailing from here.
I was honoured to be asked by Vivien of Holloway if I would model their brand-new pin-up shorts and 3/4 sleeve blouses. I did the ‘official’ shoot with Tony Nylons of Glimpse Magazine and general pin-up photography fame, and you can see them if you follow the links; but here are some more candid shots I did with my dad. 🙂
I am getting to keep a couple of pairs in return, so expect to see me out and about with them on!
The big thing on the horizon that I’m looking forward to immensely, is the annual Chap Olympiad 2010, which takes place next Saturday, July 17th. If you toddle over to the link, you’ll see a video of last year, in which I appear twice! I really cannot wait. I shall be looking after the scoreboard again this year, giving the victors in each game the recognition they don’t deserve for their sporting unprowess and general inebriation. Do come along if you’re free… but hurry – last year was a total sellout! Now to decide what to wear… I wanted to sport my pink bow Swirl that I wore on my birthday, but sadly the Whistling Tailor has it for repair after its mishap, and I don’t think I’ll have time to grab it off him before next Saturday. Outfit Plan B still to be devised! Here are a couple of snaps I took last year.

It’s always a wonderful day, though you can easily spot who’s a Chap and who’s a tourist… first time visitors do not grasp the concept fully, and race off their marks, and take it all far too seriously. At the Olympiad, you get more points for fiendish cheating and louche style than you do for speed and accuracy!
You’ll find my full review, and many more pictures from last year’s Olympiad right here, and I hope to return with similar such photographic evidence of this year’s revels, to entertain those who are unable to make it.
