Specifically my ribbed burgundy pair from La Redoute which are the perfect thickness to keep legs warm in nippy Autumn breezes. Our temperatures have halved over the course of a week so tights and boots are now a daily staple.
Strictly Come Dancing
It’s back and therefore my Saturday evenings are set (or Sunday mornings on catch up). As soon as Nancy Dell’Olio, Lulu and Robbie Savage are eliminated, I shall be happy. S is liking the return of the lovely Flavia and her dimples.
I always forget how utterly delicious and addictive this stuff is.
Visiting charity shops
I live within a two minute walk of four excellent charity shops and over the last few months I have found some absolute gems, including a copy of The Little Stranger by Sarah Walters and a lovely stripy dress that draws compliments wherever it goes.
Margaret Atwood novels
Over the last month I’ve read The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and I’ve just started The Blind Assassin. Margaret Atwood is such a startingly original writer and her writing is beautiful. S is equally addicted and is racing through The Year of the Flood in order to find out what happened to Snowman.
The Yeo Valley advert
I nearly applied for a job with Yeo Valley at the start of this year, and after watching this and last year’s rap spoof I’m regretting not going ahead with it. Ah well. Big up Westside!
