Frankly, Mr Shankly

Necklace and top//Primark (obvs), jeans//Topshop, shoes//New Look

My slightly boho look from Tuesday. The necklace got more comments than the hair. I am still awful with doing things with my hair, which never does what I want when I want, and my hands just don't seem very agile.. this didn't take too long, and amazingly didn't fall out (just imagine walking along and suddenly one plait drops down, a great look).
The weather has been gorgeous in London, just a shame I'm locked in an office from 9-5 but hopefully tomorrow I'll be going on an arty walking tour of East London with my lomo cameras (sounds terribly pretentious).

I have not great news re: my mum. I will probably have some nostalgic rambly post in the near future, but suffice to say one of the reasons she came back early from France is because she's not well. She started getting stomach pains, which have since subsided, by the docs in France were pretty worried and did plenty of tests- turns out she has lymph nodes there which are abnormal. So she's back in London with the good old NHS for further testing. I just hope they don't take too long getting a diagnosis. Needless to say, I'm pretty worried. Especially as it's just me- no brothers or sisters, no dad around..

On other news, the mouse is still frolicking round our kitchen, leaving its dropping wherever it chooses. Bwackums seems nonplussed.

  12. Keep feeling positive babs, it could really be nothing. No news is good news :) My Mum went through stages of collapsing at random times completely out of the blue, turned out to be just one of those things. I hope it is diagnosed soon too! On a lighter note, I love your hair! You look gorgeous jazzy ♥

  23. Love the hair! And I like the lace detail on that top too.
    Hopefully your mum will be ok. It's crap when your mum is sick, my mum has similar problems. It's even more worrying when you study health and know what's going on :/
