Pliffity flip! Pliffity flip! My only name is the Scroobious Pip! – Edward Lear.
This is the blog of the scroobious pip. It used to be an exclusively name that one could always snaffle on any site. Then a few years ago some British rapper came along and became the scroobius pip (at least it’s spelt different). These days people look at me like, oh yes, him. Actually, no, not him! I defer to the original scroobious pip of Edward Lear fame. Exactly what is a scroobious pip? Well, that’s the whole point… what is one?
Together with Edward Lear, this scroobious pip loves Lewis Carroll nonsense as well. Alice in wonderland is a favourite to this day. While the blog purists may cry ‘off with her head’ for my blog is not honed on a specific topic (as they are meant to be); I am happy in my meanderings on all different topics including (and in no particular order)
- my art
- sewing and in particular dressmaking
- late 1930s and early 1940s fashion and vintage patterns (usually anything pre ‘the new look’)
- my cats – sisters Licorice and Saffron (tortoise shells aka torties) and boys Pickle (ginger ninja) and Gesso (deaf white medium haired)
- disability – sometimes blindness and deafness but mostly physical disability as my boyfriend / partner in crime has something similar to muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair. He hasn’t lost his sense of humour though.
If I make no sense, that’s ok. Indeed, what a delight.
