Beware of the oak tree!!


Pipa next to her oak tree So this morning, I was contemplating my next blog whilst putting on my new and devastatingly fabulous foundation from Urban Retreat and I was suddenly serenaded by the sound of acorns raining down on my car! These little, harmless beautiful creations of nature are sent to test my good nature!!

Yet again, as autumn falls upon us (no pun intended!), I find myself leaving my house and being ATTACKED by these little squirrels' friends!!

About two weeks ago, my husband popped out to get some milk, came home ten minutes later, then as we stood chatting having coffee, lo and behold, before our eyes, through the kitchen window, we saw our car door window shatter – yes, the dreaded acorn!!
I told a friend this the other day and he laughed at me… then just yesterday he told me how this weekend he was driving along, roof down (therefore serves him right, show off!!) and an acorn hit him square between the eyes!!! Ha ha, the last laugh is on THEM!
So whether it is the acorns with a mighty agenda or the squirrels up the trees with a jolly good aim – then take heed and beware the oak tree!!!!

    Loving the pic…
    Is that Uggs you have on or Emu’s?
    I was wondering… What is that foundation like?
    Hope you are well!

    Hi Fiona
    They are my beloved emus!! …that foundation is beautiful – thanks to Decleor I have to say I rarely wear foundation these days, but that’s a really beautiful one from Urban Retreat that has the most silky finish to it – I use it when my skin is super sensitive and can’t take a brush of any kind.
    Hope you are well x
