Down the Rabbit Hole 10/18/2009
The pictures from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland have been on-line for a while however I am so excited by them I wanted to blog. They just look AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL.
A little bit spooked 10/13/2009
The boy is watching The Dark Knight Batman film. Heath Ledger is so amazing as The Joker but it is really scaring me! I saw it at the pictures and it freaked me then. It is the white noise whenever the Joker appears. Anyway to abate this spooky feeling here is a picture of the lovely Maggie Ghyllenhall. I think I will go back to designing my holiday cards as a distraction from this film! I am such a woos!
Monday Monday la laaa laaa la la la 10/12/2009
Today I was sent a sweet dvd of Sophie Dahl and Nigel Slater talking about life and food. I love Sophie, her food and her style and her writing. A good start to the week!
Saturday I Love You 10/10/2009
Ahhhhhh Saturday morning, the best of the week! I love waking up slowly, pottering about in my pj's reading the paper, yum breakfast of croissants and jam followed by hot tea. Blissikins.
This week was long but not too and and now my thoughts are turning to thinking about s-l-o-w-l-y getting ideas for christmas- making cards and things like that. However this weekend is all about rest, cosiness at home, cooking-(pavlova with POMAGRANITE! Beef casserole and soup).
Happy Weekend and here are some lovely images which i spied.
The Longest Day 10/06/2009
Today seemed like the longest day eveeeeeeeer. I had to be in work for 8am and omg by 11am i was ready for lunch and by 2pm I was ready for tea! It was so busy and I have come to the conclusion that Monday through Wednesday are quite hard. Thursday and Friday things begin to ease back a little.
Yesterday my boots arrived, so wonderful. It is so nice to have stylish knee boots and they do rock a Toast style which makes me terribly pleased! All of a sudden in England it is the fall so I know that any day know I am going to want to to start wearing my Reed Riding Hood coat. I am holding out though for Edinburgh. I tired it with my boots and it looks so smart ha ha in a guarding Buckingham Palace kind of way! ha ha . No not really.
I am starting to think about the sort of clothes I can wear in Edinburgh. Honestly in between my work tasks this is the kind of thing which occupies my mind( that and food too!). I am thinking boots leggins, bow sweater and RRH coat to travel up, blue washed jeans and a little smock top and ballet flats for the Saturday and leggins and a sweater and boots for the Sunday. Mundane I hear you scream but I am a geek and like to be sorted.
Sooooooooo I leave you with some nice images - Lili Cole ( who I think is so cool) and SUPER EXCITEMENT the new series of Gossip Girl begins tomorrow! Sofa me big time.
Midweek tomorrow, deep breath to hold out until the weekend!
