Woe is me. Alack and alas. Boo McHoo Etc.
No, that's not my reaction to being told that I look like a leprechaun (which did actually happen today).
I am sad because they have moved my picnic table! My trusty picnic table that I used to prop the camera up on for all my outfit photos. IT HAS BEEN MOVED. How very rude. I had to call the tripod into use today. Now for those of you that regularly use tripods, I imagine this would not be so bad. For me, it was. My tripod is from Lidl (who even knew they sold them?!) and has a worrying habit of unexpectedly collapsing one leg, causing me to hurtle towards the floor to rescue the DSLR from sudden death. It scares me to use it. Also it doesn't even fold down properly and I do not enjoy having to try and smuggle it around in my handbag. Even with a bag the size of mine, it is hard to be subtle about it.
In other news, I am not convinced about the dress. I wanted it muchly, especially after Sarah's amazing illustration, and managed to track it down on ebay. I had visions of looking all minxy in my minidress but in reality I look more like I'm dressing up in one of my mum's tops. Ok, not a top belonging to my mum because she's even shorter than I am, but you get my drift, right? It is a bit unflatteringly large and long sleeved. Bah.

So take pity on a girl please. Quick, hit me up with decent (and fairly cheap) tripod suggestions. I'll have to try and resolve the clothing issue myself.
