Treated myself to the new Aled Jones Christmas album yesterday the Snowman, and love Christmas records December, you understand.  Gave it a twirl in the car just now - the last track is a duet with Terry Wogan......took me by surprise, and ended up driving with tears in my eyes

Oh Fidget - what a worry.  Hope he is ok (now and tomorrow).  So scary how life turns on these split second events.  ((Hugs)) for you both.

Not the same do Frit - mine is for legal beagles.....I'm an imposter, as not a lawyer myself 😳.  Obxx - my occitane hand scrub is very much like sugar and olive oil, just much more pricey ....might consider the alternative recipe when this pot runs out. Painted my nails sparkly pink - courtesy of littlest Chicklet ....covers a multitude of sinsπŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»

On a train at the moment .....

Working from home today as I have a posh awards dinner to go to in London this evening, and the logistics get complicated.  Time to dig out the little black dress and sparkly heels, and attempt to disguise my gardeners hands and nails.  Hopefully noone will guess that my free time outfit of choice is wellies and dungarees

Happy Birthday Obx - sounds like a lovely day (apart from the kitchen planning bit).  Always great to discover new haunts.

Hope you keep the snivels at bay Clari

Just booked my Chelsea tickets - taken the plunge and gone for an all day ticket this time......can't wait.

Just been reading about an epidemic of asthma attacks in Melbourne, that they think were triggered by a thunderstorm - terrifying
