He's not just dancing. He's firming his thighs and tightening his buttocks.

It has been a very busy few days. A big project I have been working on at work for the past few weeks kicked off again, so I've spent the last couple of days frantically analysing forms and adding them to a behemoth of a spreadsheet. But it's all good, because it is quite interesting work, but poor Nic was at the sharp end of my big stressy snit yesterday. Anyway, the sun is shining and it is finally Friday, so YESSSSSSS!

C and M came around on Wednesday evening and we had another lovely girly time. C and I dyed our dresses, and I am very pleased with the shade of raspberry red my jersey Asturias dress came out. I'm wearing it to work today and it's very nice indeed, and I think it will be good come the colder weather as I will be able to layer it up. As I have said in earlier posts, I have been reading lots of other blogs recently and I am going to magpie something else from one. At A Typical Atypical, Lauren wrote about fashion wish lists, so here is mine:

1. Wedge knee-high boots, preferably in brown. Fly London had a pair out a few years ago which I loved, and were too expensive. And when I finally decided to buy them and tried them on, they came up too high on my leg. Obviously their target demographic is ladies with longer legs than me! I can't find a picture of them but Harlot brought out a pair a few seasons ago with a covered wedge and they were lovely. I'll just keep looking, I'm going to have to!

2. I want to get one of those lovely halterneck dresses from Vivienne of Holloway….maybe to wear to C's wedding.

3. A really fabulous winter coat. Suggestions welcome. Not black, but I would consider grey.

4. New shoes, always new shoes. I really like these shoeboots (almost) by Irregular Choice from Aspire

In fact, I will buy these. I love the shape of them, and the buttons, and the fact that they are called Flick Flack. I'm easily pleased like that!

That is all I can think of right now, but I'm sure I will have more to add in the future, my eye is always lighting on something and wanting it. Although I have been very good this month so far, in an attempt to have some money when I have my London mystery adventure next weekend with Nic, and for when I go home at the end of the month. I'll buy myself some pretty things in October.

I'm feeling quite tired and full of lurgy (that oh-so-scientific term) and am struggling to think of something else to write in this post. I think I'll bring it to a close here and write more after the weekend. Oh, but I am very excited because my VHS of Day of the Daleks (not available on DVD) bought the other evening on eBay, has arrived. Jon Pertwee didn't like the Daleks all that much but I am very excited about seeing my favourite Doctor taking on the Daleks. Maybe that is a bit lame, but you know what? I DON'T CARE!
