is this microphone on?

Prominent socialite Mise of Pretty Far West appeared this evening at a press conference to address rumours concerning her recent lack of blogging.

Ms PFW, wearing an off the shoulder green silk Balenciaga gown and a candy-striped Cath Kidston oven glove, explained that her silence was due to such compelling factors as bathroom renovation, the dark, damp weather that discouraged photography, the unfolding tragedy of Peter and Jane (book 4a) and the humanitarian impulse to sit around eating buns (cupcakes, fairy cakes) in sympathy with her commentators.

The PFW press office confirmed to reporters that Mise is currently in rehearsal for demonstrations of how to fold a t-shirt. When asked how this was going, she replied self-deprecatingly that Scottish Husband had mastered the skill immediately while she was still trying to unwrap the chopsticks.

A clearly astonished Ms PFW went on to reveal that she hadn't recently received any blogging awards and so could not divulge the traditional 137 facts about herself, but was hoping to stage a spectacular comeback with a new kitchen shelf, just above the dishwasher, in the next few weeks.

Ms PFW's fans were enjoined as they departed to please enjoy this blog post responsibly.

    Love the pink tablecloth ... please can I have it? It's just I need one, I really do. Farmer's market stall needs one.

    Ok I understand you don't want to part with it. So how about a clue as to where I could purchase my very own??

  8. Wow, you really are special! I've got a perfect image of you in your gown. Simply stunning, Ms. PFW.

  9. Could someone please offer this woman her very own reality TV series?

  10. Did you say candy striped Cath Kidson oven glove....oh I can see you now....a gloriously funny post Ms PFW....I am off to buy my own Cath Kidson candy striped oven glove, cause I wanna be just like you!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just for the fashion conscious, did you wear the glove on the same side as the revealing shoulder to show strength and determination, or did you wear it on the opposite side to have balance with the universe? Just between you and me, be careful with your answer, it could have future political ramifications.
    As for the blog awards, make them up and send them to yourself from a friend's site. The two of you know more than anyone else just how deserving you are.

  12. Thanks for a great post and the info about the table cloth...mine has cellotape stuck all over it, can't (be bothered to) get the glue off...Those pesky kids!

    ReplyDelete
  13. You humor is priceless. Now if you'd so desire I could over indulge you with a plethora of bloggy awards! I do think that the oven glove was a clever touch to the over-all look Mise. Tell me, do all Scottish hubby's fold shirts so well. Mine too could do it behind his back. Weird...

    Enjoy more fairy cakes and Peter & Jane with sweet Pink daughter ♥

  14. Sorry, but I am enjoying this blog post irresponsibly, by reading it whilst bareback riding a stoat around the garden. That's the kind of behaviour your blogging inspires goddamit.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You are so freakin' hilarious, mise!!! Love coming to your blog every time (although with the apprehension that my comments will be totally unequal in terms of wit).
    I am your reading and writing servant, brilliant one!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Reading? That is beyond fabulous. Way better than the potty training going on over here.

    Balenciaga was the only appropriate fashion choice. Good work m'dear.

  17. the visual in the gown is a delight. it reminded me of a song...

  18. I'll be waiting for that new kitchen shelf. It won't be easy, but I'll try to be patient.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Bathroom renovation sounds reason enough for me, Mise. That Cath Kidston oven mitt would make up for a lot as well...

    ReplyDelete
  20. That dress is beautiful on you! Oh that shade of green is my favourite. I'm hoping to hop back on the blogging train again tonight, after a rainy weekend in Cork!

  21. You and your hair are looking even better than normal- this break is obviously doing you good, just don't enjoy it too much.
    I decided to put my holiday to good 'lifestyle' use, and went to visit a Cath Kidson shop, and -squeak- Fortnum and Mason. As a result I have my own starry apron and some expensive tea bags. I just have to be creative in the kitchen now.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Squeak indeed, Speccy. See up there on the top right, there's a 'Create Blog' button. The world needs to see your fancy tea bags.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Mya, the glove goes on the same side as the covered shoulder for sure. Is that the right answer or am I doomed?

    Dumbwit Tellher, I think Scottish Husbands in general have a secret engineering streak that is indulged by ultra-precision folding.

    Flora, are you waving your stolen potato-masher in the air as well?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Potato masher is indeed aloft. I always accessorize my stoat-riding with kitchen utensils.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dear Ms PFW,

    I don't have any stoats OR stolen potato mashers, but I am neglecting The Children in order to read your blog post. Is that irresponsible or does it depend what they do whilst thus neglected?

    Yours anxiously,

    Ms ISM

  28. Ms PFW, could you put me in touch with your press office please? I have further queries relating to how to fold a t-shirt and I simply must find the source of the ensemble you wore to the recent press conference.

    ReplyDelete
  29. A brave fashion choice given the lifestyle-hampering rain. How do you hold the martini glass aloft whilst wearing the oven glove? Did you upcycle the glove with some handy velcro fasteners?

    Who needs awards when you're in a class all of your own...there is no competition, Mise. Meredy xo.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well you're not the only one slacking on the blogging front! I'm using my week-long contests to avoid all the posting I used to do, and I only get around to commenting once a week instead of daily. I think it's a summer thing.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Children did not play quietly at chess. They do play chess, but not quietly, and not while I read blog posts. (Mostly during dinner, on account of the chess set being in the dining room.) Neither did they cross-stitch me a sampler.

    Instead, they played noisily at Lego Harry Potter on the Wii, and made a mess of their bedrooms. (They sampled a bit of my crossness after that.)

    I'm thinking of setting the parking warden curate on them. Or would that be irresponsible?

  32. glad to see you back from your lack of award bestowment blues, i had a little extended holiday too, just to make sure i was living enough of a lifestyle-y life.
    i think it's our responsability as blog authouresses, don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  33. glad to see you can still manage a press conference amidst the despair of lack of award bestowment.
    i too ahve had an extended weekend, to amke sure i am living a lifesyle-y enough life.
    i think it's ou responsability as blog authouresses, don't you?

  34. I must see a photo of "Ms PFW, wearing an off the shoulder green silk Balenciaga gown and a candy-striped Cath Kidston oven glove"!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Dear Mise,
    I don't think that the press conference was needed as real life does have to take precedence sometimes. Mind you, it was a good excuse to wear your posh frock !!!! I've been a hopeless blogger lately as I've been away and had other commitments. .... and I am still trying to catch up !!
    I loved the oven glove touch.....I tend to favour a single thigh length wader myself.
    P.S. There is definitely a drought on the award front. I think that we may need to do something about that. XXXX

  36. Love all the painterly things above, that tablecloth is utterly charming. Happy weekend!

  37. congrats on receiving my blog award! the requirements are one must tell:
    where does one find Cath Kidston oven mitts? Sounds adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are hilarious- so glad I found your blog- Lovely photography and lovely to 'meet' you!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jacqueline, a single thigh length wader - you're my new style icon. I imagine you standing in an unruly line with Vivienne Westwood and Patsey from Absolutely Fabulous, all three of you sipping the finest champagne as you pose for the camera.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You're my style guru, i went to flipping cath kidston on portabello road and bought only a wallet and some lousy pin holder thing for my mother. I knew i should have gotten some kind of 'oh i use my aga alllll the time' kind of accoutrement. damn it.

    'scuse my french, but you're fucking funny. only words for it.

  41. Bathroom renovation? I hope there will be photos?

    Go Pink Daughter Go!

    It's good to read your words, Ms. PFW. You always make me laugh. Thank you.
