It's red hot, mate. I hate to think of this sort of book getting in the wrong hands. As soon as I've finished this, I shall recommend they ban it.

A short little blog this evening because a)I have been having a quiet week and don't have much to write about and b)I have a horrible headache. It's been alleviated a little bit by a shower, a cup of tea, some paracetamol and some mini dime bar sweeties but still. I should give the old laptop a rest I think.
I wasn't in the office today. I had a work-related appointment in Birmingham and worked from home this morning. Nic came with me to Birmingham in the afternoon and we had a rather lovely time. I had randomly aching feet and decided to wear my red cowboy boots, and paired them with the vintage dress I brought home from Paris:
I managed to fit in a little bit of shopping before my appointment. Nic took himself off to the comic shops, while I had a look in the vintage shops in Digbeth. I came up trumps, as well, finding a beautiful blue prairie style dress with a full skirt and pockets! Photos to follow when I wear it - it needs a slight bit of alteration as the neckline has a strange tucker detail I'd like to remove. I met Nic when I was finished and we had lunch, before having a wander around a few shops. I finally got to see the Tony Hancock statue - he was born in the Hall Green area of Birmingham, in 1924.

Other than that, it's been a quiet week. My darling Nic came to Coventry yesterday and took me out to lunch, and I have a lunch date tomorrow with Louise. Then it's finally the weekend, and I have a date with Nic and a trip to the cinema to see Ghostbusters to look forward to. So all in all, I might be a bit more interesting the next time I post something here! I'll leave you with some photos, I've been messing around with my camera a bit over the past few days...

I've been working all week in the secure room with test papers. This is the view out the window

Best cup of tea ever

A spooky witch in a sexy dress has been bugging me...
