Today I spent an absolutely fantastic day in Great Yarmouth with Gemma (the lovely Retro Chick) with the intention of soaking up a little culture, eating some fish and chips and generally rejoicing in our flexible working lives. Whilst we failed on the fish and chips front we did manage to squeeze in an unexpectedly traditional afternoon tea and culture in the form of the "Secrets of the Saucy Seaside Postcard" exhibition at the Time and Tide Museum.
One thing that caught my eye was this charming card with the even more charming sentiment expressed:
You try to look like a film star
and it's quite a difficult task,
for although your face is covered
'til it's almost like a mask,
with paint and lipstick and the like
it often makes us wonder,
if ever you'll achieve success
disguising natural blunder.
Oh how I would laugh if I got this particular beauty next Valentine's Day.
