Cheeky pre-dinner snack.. with a few new friends of mine, galloping on the plate (+ angel with trumpet). One of my favourite things about Christmas is the decorations, they're up for so much longer than Christmas day, and just make you all festive and warm inside.. Only another week or so until I feel we can make a start! when I was little I used to love counting how many Christmas trees I could see in a road as we drove along..
And I am afraid I have a new pair of shoes. I ordered these from the New Look website as they were in the sale for £10 and free delivery also! But I did finally check my bank account and I am officially in my overdraft, not merely drifting towards it, so that is that, no more spending except on travel and food until pay day.. I feel I am playing catch up in a way, when people ask why I'm suddenly buying heels. When I was a young teenager, I had one pair of shoes, trainers, and I wore them every day until I got a new pair. Those were the unfashionable late ninties, early noughties. So yes, now I have rather more shoes, not just cheap Primark flats although I've got through my fair share of those, but more interesting pairs too. It took me a while to take the plunge, really just from thinking too much "I don't usually wear this sort of thing", or "what will my mum/boyfriend etc think- It's not me!" when really it is, but just different. After all, people's styles evolve all the time (thankfully, no one wants to see Nike trainers, bell bottom jeans and a baggy plaid shirt this side of the decade).
We have not much light in the flat when it's evening, so here is my new way of lighting myself. I believe one can see goose pimples on my knees.
