Exhausted!


Yawn! I had a day out with my lovely friend, Cheryl, hitting the charity shops of Derby....

scrutinising the British high street (dull, dull, dull) and having a pub lunch in Wetherspoons...

followed by a damp stroll around beautiful Matlock Bath, topped off with an English cream tea.

I'm exhausted! It's a long soak in the bath and my guilty pleasure of CSI followed by an early night with a good book.

I'm chilling out in a vintage Afghani kaftan my mum bought from a flea market before I was born.

Normal service and blog comments will be resumed tomorrow....promise!

Good night!

    I got to Matlock Bath quite a bit (despite being a good 2 hours down the M1 away) - a good friend of mine lives there. I was just there the weekend before last in fact, the scenery never fails to blow me away. :)

  15. I too, am exhausted. Should be in bed. But am patiently waiting for my husband to read my blog (he is my favorite "follower" and I love to hear what he thinks).

    Oh, and I LOVE your bedroom. And I love this, whatever it is, kaftan?

    beautiful.

    As for pics of my place? I will. Only it isn't all done yet. And I want it to be before I show it!

  17. Hi Vix, hope you are well.
    You are so strong to carry on and look amazing dispite your tough times lately. Sounds like you had a wonderful day, I wish there was somewhere with decent charity shops round near me so that I could grab bargains as wonderful as yours! The kaftan is gorgeous and an early night with a good book sounds equally so! Currently looking for a book worth reading and I will be following in your footsteps. Have a great day!xxx

  20. You look so pretty in the vintage kaftan - I love the details and colour - reminds me of my silk hand-made japanese dressing gown. You must have a stylish and chic mama;-)

    And less of calling CSI a guilty pleasure ;-) I love it!

  24. But Vix, isn't it the GREAT British high street according to Gok Wan? Bah, nothing can compare with your beautiful vintage caftan with personal memories. You look exhausted, but absolutely lovely! xxx

  25. You may be exhausted honey but you look very regal and exotic and magical!... like Solitaire in 'Live and Let Die'!

  26. That kaftan is so glam, must up the wow factor of my night/loungey wear! xx

  27. This is lovely and perfect. I am gonna go put one of mine on so we can be soul sisters ;) I am a notorious dork! And I like it! Took me many years to figure out that being silly, talkative and goofy are O.K. It's my new goal in life to embarrass my Hubs as often as I can;) He is stuck in a 70's "too cool to be goofy" vibe! That must be utterly exhausting!!! I also will happily give ya my address, and I'd love to have yours as well. I can't believe you have the grace to think of others at this time. I am so honored to have found you!

  28. What beautiful colours, and such a lovely history behind it too! And Matlock Bath - that bought back memories. I lived in Nottingham for about eight years and used to go there quite often - it's such a wonderful spot!

  29. Woohoo I live near there :D xXx
