Today D and I dragged our slightly hungover selves to Highgate Cemetery, home to Karl Marx amongst other distinguished and less distinguished people. It was nice to wander round and take in all the old graves with sculptures, though having to pay seems a little odd, as it's still a "working" cemetery.
Thursday I did indeed make it to Primark and spent far too much money- there were so many gems! (hence mainly Primark outfit). D was doing his best impression of a racist here, clomping around in his DMs and wearing Ben Sherman and Fred Perry (he actually "dressed up" as a skinhead for Halloween last year).

My mum emailed me earlier in the week to tell me she'd actually be back from France tomorrow, not Tuesday! Which is nice as I get to spend Mothers Day with her :) I've bought her some flowers, and have seriously never seen so many people walking around carrying bunches of flowers.

Had a little shock earlier- caught a mouse scurrying behind the washing machine in the kitchen! I should really get Bwackums on the case..

  16. Gorgeous outfit, definately looks like that Primark adventure was successful, can't wait to see what else you got! I am the biggest wuss when it comes to cemetaries, and it doesn't help because the ones where I live happen to be very haunted and even I've had a scary unexplainable expierience there...

    ps;
    the line "D was doing his best impression of a racist here, clomping around in his DM's.." had me LOL hard, don't know why but I just found it so funny :P
    Hope you're having a good week :)

  18. This is a cute outfit. Really like the skirt. That is a little werid to pay to go to a cemetary. It would be neat to wander though it though. :) It's beautiful.
