I must apologise to followers of my other blogs: I did not forewarn them that my fickleness has prevailed once again, so I am down-sizing my number of blogs. As much as I love blogging about fashion and style of almost all decades, my true passion/obsession is really the 40s, so I am going to re-commit my focus on "Letters from the Home-front." This may also help me free up time for tackling life on the real home-front, which has been quite action packed. You see, life as a Land Girl is about more than just dressing up and getting pretty for vintage photoshoots. There are hidden foes to be quashed at every corner.
My first opponent: a mutant Wisteria that was growing up the side of the house and infiltrating the roof; I single-handedly destroyed this fiendish foliage while dangling precariously from a sky-high ladder.
Next, I had to mercilessly evict a mountaineering house-mouse who had built his nest in a nook created by the bend in the drainpipe, just below the eavestrough of the roof. We've been calling him Dracu-Mouse because when we disturbed the nest, he scaled down the wall, head first, like the creepy Gary Oldman Dracula in the Coppola film.
My next, and most perilous mortal enemy is Spider Man. In order to defeat Spidey, I must destroy his lair (see below). It's going to take special weaponry (wallpaper remover, oodles of primer and paint, and a fearlessness of "the second coat"), but Land Girl WILL emerge victorious...or will she? Stay tuned...
