I am working from home (and have been for the past 2.5 weeks) - it's great because it is pretty quiet at work what with EVERYBODY being away on hols so it would be just completely mind-numbing to be stuck in the office. I can do a bit of housework, go for a walk, nip out to the shops, spend cuddle-time with the woofers etc all between emails and an odd call here and there! Could really get used to this but it all ends Monday! However, it is only 2.5 weeks then til I go on my holiday for 2.5 weeks...all round happy me :) Hope you are having a good week!

Just happened upon these gorgeous slippers on Etsy...they are divine! What I especially love is that you can buy a little rubber sole to pop on the bottom if you want.

In the post...

Received this (and two other bracelets) in the post today...really pleased! Had seen something similar elsewhere but was shocked by the price, then came across Zzavll and thought that they were very reasonable...waxed cotton comes in loads of different colours.

Also quite fancy these desert boots...really good value from New Look...available in a tan colour which I like too..

Have a good week!

Seven things...'s been a while...I don't know what to be blogging about these days! We are having such a crappy summer weather-wise! Anyway...Catherine of Little Glowing Lights tagged me AGES ago about this...I can never think of interesting stuff for these kind of things but here is my meagre offering...

**I really don't like weddings - my husband and I ran away to get married because we dislike them so much, and spent the money we would have spent on a wedding on a f**k off 7 week honeymoon instead.... LA, Fiji, New Zealand, SF and NYC...selfish us :)

**Apparently I smile a lot - I am not really aware of this tho. I am generally happy but I have very grumpy moments and have no problem sharing them.

**I can swear like a fish wife (unless I am with people I don't know, then I can hold back...for a while).

**I am always, always, always on some kind of "diet" - basically I am either putting on weight or losing it!!

**Today I realised that I have LOADS of grey hair, I mean that if I didn't colour it, I would be sporting a total salt (mostly salt) and pepper look - I have been colouring my hair for years...for FUN but not anymore, now I HAVE to...I am getting OLD.

**I should be at least 2 inches taller than I am! I have scoliosis - that's a curvature of the spine - I had surgery when I was about 14 and wore a plaster cast around my body for a year! You wouldn't really notice it unless you were an expert tho..which is good :)

**I was almost born in the US of A! My Dad was sent on a year long course shortly after he and my mother got married and, like the good little catholics that they were, my mother quickly became pregnant - I wish she hadn't decided to come home to have me cos then I would have dual citizenship..I would love to live in NYC for 6 months!

That's it folks! Have a great week :)
