I must have a go at smudging my own face Mary - it looks like it takes years off of you!
BTW A very poignant way to show how you are remembering your mum Mary! The snow adds an air of mystery around it. I love it even though I am a bit unsure about the scarf! I think possibly the smudging has made it look like a piece of blue polythene around your neck but in some ways this just adds to the mystery. And who knows - it would never surprise me if you did have a piece of blue polythene around your neck and probably also, a good reason for wearing it!!

OH, IT WAS Blue plastic--it was actually a cheap plastic raincoat. I wanted to post the original--for laughs--but it was so late and Keith wanted me to come to bed.

I just wrote a really long reply to this and I must have hit a wrong button or something as it didn't come out and now I can't remember what I said!

The original is a scream and who would ever have thought you could have made something so special out of it. I guess it was just too tempting to take a picture of yourself like that when you had the opportunity of a mirror and your little camera.

I am wondering if you would have thought of the blizzard if it hadn't been for the toilet door. I am also wondering if you will be taking so many SPs now that your mum has died. It never even occurs to me to take SPs apart from those I did for your theme last year.

Oh I know what my opening remarks were in the lost comment: "Lucky you for having someone that wanted you to conme to bed!"

I am lucky to have someone who wants me to come to bed--I need to remember and treasure that!

I may not take as many SPs now that I don't need them for her--except now it has become a HABIT! We'll see how slowly it dies. Or doesn't.

And yes, the snowstorm idea DID come from the toilet stalls! It was snowing here and the stall made me think of putting it in the picture. LOL!

It's still snowing now.
