I'm really upset because the weather is getting warmer. I don't want winter to end. It's tree-tricking weather. It will make the blossoms think they can come out, but then blast them icy with a small reversal. But it is a portent of the end. I'd hate to have no season changes, but does summer have to be in the equation?
I'm really upset because I got my electricity bill. I think most people are. It did make me not use my heater for two days, so there is that one benefit of the tree-tricking weather. Today I staved off the cold for a little while with a twenty-thousand-page-visits dance (it doesn't compare to the big, or even the medium sized guns' blogs I know, but it's not bad for my little not-for-profit silliness). But in the end the whole thing about having to go to work means I can spend that hard-earned on heat. So it's back on tonight.
I'm really upset because I slept through my alarm (again) and just about missed an opportunity to catch up with a friend I haven't seen in years. Just about. Luckily we did catch up. Don't you love friends you can chat to as if you saw them last week rather than three or four years ago? It was lovely. And there was almond croissant.
I'm really upset because someone has written my book. One of them. It's called The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot by Robert MacFarlane. It explores the relationship between man and landscape through walking, particularly walking in Britain. I know that there can be more than one book about this, and that my book would look at it in another way. What is upsetting when you see a book like this is that it reminds you that you haven't written it. There is a simple thing to be said about what makes a writer. It's merely the act of writing. Am I a writer if I don't have a book?
Today's A/W 2013 outfit is one hundred percent inspired by Louis Vuitton's slip and dressing gown collection. See some examples here and here and here. I like bedroom fashion. And, for your info, only man-made fibres were hurt in the production of this outfit. If I had to, had to, had to choose one item from his A/W 2013 collection for my own though, it would be this one.
Who wore it better?
