If you are slightly confused as to why a middle-aged woman is dancing next to her rubbish bin with cauliflower, broccoli and a banana on a chopstick on her head in this post, check out my about page. In short, I dress up for rubbish collection day and have done so every Wednesday for many months. I am a big believer in injecting regular doses of silly into one’s life. As a work-from-home worker, I also fight daily the battle of not giving in to tracksuit pants and slippers and, heaven forbid, no lipstick!
So, to fight the seriousness of life with wrinkles and children and unmanageable dogs and bills and taxes, every Wednesday I get my eccentric on and dance in the street. This week, it was Carmen Miranda Day because the cauliflower was very slimy and needed to be disposed of. It was a fiesta. Dogs barked. Neighbours hid their eyes. My charming husband laughed at me.
I will be adding some of the older photos this week and next but from then on, I will see you every Wednesday.
