Hit him, Frank! I'll hit him for ye!

Evening my loves! It's cold and dismal here in Leamington today, I've been working from home and it is SO GLOOMY. Luckily for me, Nic has been keeping me cheery with cups of tea and blankets and hot water bottles, so it's all good. Also, today was the first day I've been able to work from home since we moved into our new jobs, and for the first time ever working from home I haven't wanted to throw the work IT equipment out of the window. I value any such small victory over technology, so I'm quite happy about that. It's all about taking the wins where you can find them, isn't it?

This week has been SO busy at work and by the time it got to yesterday afternoon it already felt like this week had been about three weeks long. I had two big and important meetings and getting ready for them was seriously time consuming. It didn't help that all the printers broke and by the time they were fixed we'd run out of paper - yes, it's been one of those weeks. Still, it's all good really, and I have a short week next week. Trying to stay positive about work is important right now.

When I got home last night it was at least to some nice post - a dress I'd bought on ebay and a lovely, gorgeous letter from one of my dearest friends. I'm hopefully going to be seeing that friend this weekend, all being well, and I wore the new dress today.

Fever Menorca dress and Irregular Choice Little Miss Oh shoes

I like this dress - it's a size bigger than I would normally wear, so it's a bit boxy around the top, but it's really comfortable and I like the print - it's I can see this becoming a good working from home dress. The photo looks a bit blurred, but it's not that it's out of focus - it was the rain. We had no real need to leave the house today but I felt like I needed to get some natural light. I love our little flat but on a gloomy day, it feels really gloomy. So Nic and I went out for a walk in the rain, and coffee and a chocolate brownie. The combination of sugar and caffeine made even the rain seem charming.

Anyway, that's all I have to share today, so I'm off for an exciting evening of cooking, ironing, and maybe watching Star Trek IV. I know. Don't be too jealous. I'm just resting up for the exciting weekend I have ahead of me. In the meantime, I'm going to leave you with something that made me laugh til I cried:

I give this four Maurice McDaids! Bon appetit!
