Apologies for my absence from the wonderful world of blogging. I didn't go really AWOL after my impromptu night out on Thursday, life just seemed to get in the way. What with funeral arrangements, Dad's 81st birthday and Jon and I moving my brother into his first house I've barely had a second spare.
The rain's finally stopped, the sun is shining but the wind is flipping freezing. We've been to the garden centre this morning in an attempt to find some pretty blooms for our windowboxes which are looking a little the worse for wear (bit like me after last night's boozefest). With a houseful expected on Thursday I've got to reinvent myself into a domestic goddess, whipping up tasty appetisers and serving refreshments with a smile, I might even have to ask Jon where we keep the vacuum cleaner.
Today's outfit is mostly vintage and all second-hand : Orange suede culottes found on a clearance rail at last years' Clothes Show Live's "Vintage Village", a charity-shopped tweed waistcoat, 1970's oversized "Googles" sunglasses from a 10p bucket at a car boot sale, a jumble sale vest and a charity shop belt.....
...plus my 1960's Finnish leather boots purchased earlier this week from the British Heart Foundation for £4.99. They have elasticated panels at the back which make them nicely close-fitting.
As always my jewellery is a mix of Indian buys, inherited pieces and vintage finds.
Keep your fingers crossed for a dry day tomorrow. The lure of bank holiday boot sale is calling and I need my fix.
