Anything weird apparently MJ - op shop pickups perhaps, although these days op shops are more like departmental stores and I couldn't find anything remotely like weird so I just chose something I wouldn't normally wear. I'm not a dress up person either but who is going to stand out in the crowd if you are not wearing something different  ;D

I normally look weird so I'll dress up as me. ;)
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

You could always just mix match. Flanny shirt, pretty skirt and daggy sneakers with footy socks.

Good idea Amy! Hmm. I have lots of dress ups that I've stored. The kids are always going to themed parties these days. Plus, our Red Hatter group have participated in a number of theatre acts over the years.... Hmmmm....
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Oh Chookie's that must be horrid. We whine when it is 3 degrees over night. I wear my size 22 frog py's and bed socks. A sight for sore eyes.  ;)

Gert and Cookie,  the house is warm and I have spent most of the day catching up on inside jobs.  We have a very large free standing combustion wood heater, it runs day and night,  this time of the year.  In the distance,  we can see the snow on Bulla.  Family have been skiing.  Kids have been building igloos  and snow caves.  These  have been very popular this year. 
I have been watching the temp for Queensland and WA.  Lucky devils.  See you soon. ;D

I am jealous. I miss the snow and a real winter.
