Hail Caesar! Debating fashion attire whilst sauntering, cross legged, to the market - not easy

Following the sage advice of Epilepsia I drank an abundance of water prior to a little saunter yesterday. In more than one way it was a great relief when I reached Spenzicus Marc's. All had passed (I'm back to the saunter now) without a hitch so wil go back to daily strolling attended by lackeys and adoring hangers-on from now on.

Eventually I will get as fast as a scurry. I'll have to because otherwise I'm never going to get to wear the magnificent tunic. I gaze upon it morning to night when I am at the villa. Its splendour is a thing of great beauty. Hmm, is going out in something so wonderous a good idea? Perhaps I will look a touch feminine? As Caesar, are tassels and silver ric rac braid the image I'm trying to promote. Maybe it's a good job the tunic doesn't quite fit. Possibly I should speak to Yves from across the Rubicon before venturing out.

(Oh, if I'd only continued being the valiant king of last year I would not be suffering this fashion problem now. Would I look camp if I tried to butch the look up with a few leather thongs?)

Yes, leopard skin - only faux of course!

Pug fur? Do you skin the poor things if they stop looking as good as you'd like? Should I warn Doug?

Morning Sweetie, I've got the lurgy, well I think I've still got it. Typical!! 2 days back at school and I've picked up a stomach bug. Went to bed as soon as I got home yesterday and haven't eaten anything for 24 hours but woke up about 5am desperate for a cup of Yorkshire's finest, so I'm assuming I'm on the mend. Are you doing Parkrun today? X

Big hugs ((( ))) I think that bug was what I had last week . It must be doing the rounds and a school is an ideal breeding ground isn't it ? Hope you feel better soon . Yes , I'm just getting into faffidge mode for parkrun today :-) xxx

Hugs gratefully received :) Have fun at Parkrun. Let the faffage commence xxx

Tassels and silver ric rac braid are just the thing - easy on the leather

Worryingly, I can't get the picture of the buns of steel and the leather thong out of my mind. Think I need to go lie down in a darkened room for a while!!
