Such lovely comments! Thank you so much for cheering me up, my grumps have gone and I'm off out with the girls to the local bikers' pub.
It's the kind of place where you stick to the carpet, there's no locks on the toilet doors, the rock music's loud and wearing any other colour than black would probably have you barred. It's where I met Jon and spent most of my youth and as everyone knows me there's no hassle if I go out in hot pants.
I bet I'll be the only chick in there wearing Chanel's Paradoxal. Isn't it gorgeous?
I was lucky enough to win it in a blog giveaway, thanks a million, Kate.
Talking of luck, I found these vintage dressmaking patterns at this morning's car boot sale, there's thirty-eight of them in all, dating from 1952.
Maybe they'll help me recapture my enthusiasm for sewing. It seems to have deserted me recently.
What am I wearing? I bought this silk playsuit at the car boot sale this morning for 50p. It's been so warm and lovely this afternoon that I managed to wash and line-dry it ready to wear tonight. Everything else is second-hand (as usual).
