I'm a step closer to being fixed! I'm just back from the dentist who, being the coolest bloke in NHS dentistry, waived his £48 fee and fixed my busted tooth for free. He saw me in Mumbai a few years ago but couldn't get my attention over the traffic noise on Colaba Causeway. I loved it when he told me that, being spotted by someone you know in a foreign city half-way around the world with a population of over 21 million is totally insane.
I'm supremely grateful but, man, is PK heavy handed with the aesthetic? My face is so numb I'm speaking like I've had a head injury and I reckon I'll need a straw to drink my bitter at the Black Country Arms later (but at least I've got more cash than I initially expected so the first round's on me).
I unearthed this Berketex Boutique maxi & head scarf when I was rummaging in the wardrobe to make room for my new acquisitions (I donated 5 pairs of boots & sandals, 3 tee shirts, 2 sarongs, four bags, a purse full of jewellery, a bikini, 3 scarves, a dodgy-looking ornament and a stack of paperbacks to the Sally Army this morning). Over the past two years it's seen me through everything from arranging Mum's funeral, hosting dinner parties to cruising down the Mandovi river in Goa on a disco boat and large-ing it to Spiritualised & Groove Armada at The Big Chill. Not bad for an outlay of 99p.
Yesterday's free bag needed help, beige wasn't really doing it for me so I gave it a home dye job between last night's Olympic action. Dylon's Flamingo Pink (courtesy of Annie) is so much more me!

Right, it's early doors this evening and I'd better get my act together if I'm going to make the pub for 6pm.
Have a fabulous weekend and see you very soon!
