I had an appointment earlier today with a GP I hadn't met before. You look amazing, the doctor said, what on earth do you do for a living? What do you think, Doctor? I challenged her. She guessed at either a clairvoyant or a medium.
I wonder what gave her that idea? It must have been my aura, I wasn't dressed like this.

I'm always being wrongly labelled, Indian, Pakistani, Italian, Israeli, Romanian or Spanish are my most oft-assumed nationalities and if I'm not being taken for a lap dancer then it's a being mistaken for a lady of the world's oldest profession. Charming, perhaps I should reconsider those killer heels and fake fur coats but there again, perhaps not.

Weird assumptions aside, I've been thoroughly spoilt again. The fabulous Ivy Black sent me a surprise parcel ...
....containing this stunning vintage gilt pendant, isn't it beautiful?

...And Christina sent me all the dresses I'm wearing plus a rather fabulous nightgown and the Keith Richards book which I've wanted since it came out. After chatting to her on the phone earlier I laughed so much I cried my eyeliner off.
I do love my blogging friends!
