ANYWAY. Yes. That's what's happening on the work front. Personally speaking the rest of the time has been quiet. Nic was away for some of last weekend at a conference, so after a particularly crappy Friday at work, I had a quiet evening to myself in which to sew, crochet, watch DVDs and drink cava. Well, I didn't actually get around to that last bit, but it was nice. And I spent the first part of Saturday doing the same thing. It's rare enough that I have a free Saturday, and the sun was shining, and it was lovely. Nic got back earlier than I was expecting, which was just as well because that night I became quite unwell and needed some fussing, which he was happy to provide. Thankfully I was feeling better on Sunday, so it sort of felt like I'd gained a day. It was cool, but not cold... and I think I was trying to deny November to myself:
Emily and Fin Lucy dress, cardigan from H&M and Next wedges
I think you can tell from my shiny wee face here that I'm still not feeling great! Sunday wasn't the last day I was able to go bare-legged, it's still been pretty mild here. But yeah, I have to face facts. It's definitely winter here now. I've got my (admittedly very pretty) winter coat out of the wardrobe and everything.
Anyway, the rest of the week has passed in a bit of a blur, and I'm looking forward to a weekend of fun - dancing, drinking, going to a vintage fair, hopefully finally finishing my Colette Peony dress and nursing the inevitable post drinking and dancing hangover. I have to be up at some utterly uncivilised hour on Monday to go to a meeting in Slough, so I'm going to try to make the most of the weekend.
I'm short on inspiration at the moment - as I say, it's been a long week - so I'm going to leave you with a few photos, and I'll be back soon.
This came in the post for me this morning - my best friend is getting married at Christmas. Now I have all the excitement of thinking about what to wear, or what to make to wear!
... as were these beautiful Orange roses. Good old Nic knows me well
New (to me) shoes. Call me shallow, but they cheered me up. Especially as I had to throw two pairs out this week.
