rock and roll

Happy Mid-Week! Half way to the weekend, hurrah!
This is actually what I wore yesterday, as today I have (another) cold and look like something the cat dragged in; though not my cat…he’s too lazy and afraid of small creatures to bring anything other than himself through the cat flap!

I think this jumper dress from New Look is going to end up being my buy of the season. I went two sizes up to get the desired loose fit and it’s SO comfortable.




Not much else to report on, such is the quiet life I lead. I’m supposed to be researching my next moves in terms of courses etc,
but really, I’ll probably just crawl back in to bed for the third time today.

I’m trying to step things up a gear with this blog now I’m used to wordpress so expect more posts more often,
including the Christmas gift guides I promised. Many thanks for the suggestions…
