Apologies for not being around much of late, and also not responding to some of your lovely comments, but I will fill you in on my next blog. The reason I’m saying we’re having such a ‘beautiful’ time, is about that incredible Beauty Day we just had? Amazing! Sadly I was in Italy but I did manage to catch some of it (I don’t, of course, mean I was sad to go to Italy, but you get my drift).
This post is just a quick hello to let you know I’m really looking forward to this Bank Holiday weekend! I have a full four days (Friday to Monday) packed with some great shows.
Then on Saturday I’ve got nails with Orly at midday, Percy & Reed later in the afternoon at 3pm, followed by a fashion show I actually haven’t done before: Andrew Yu. I bought this beautiful draped asymmetric top online and love it, it comes in two gorgeous colours too.
This Dawson marathon is finished off with the lovely Laura Geller at 3pm on Monday – an excellent pick n’ mix I’m sure you’ll agree!
So what else is new? I’ve had two trips away recently which I need to fill you in on (and I am using the word “trip” deliberately here!). One was in the run up to Easter in Israel, and the other brief jaunt was the recent few days in Italy.
Israel – as always – was incredible! I’ve been there so many times, but I’m still discovering sites and areas I’ve never been to (more on those adventures in my next blog).
Italy was short and sweet; just checking everything is in order before the hordes start coming over in the summer. Apart from a broken fridge and the oldest car in the world wanting to give up the ghost, we are all good
I’ve had that car out there for years and I really don’t want to part with it. I know I’ll have to eventually, but when the time comes it’ll most certainly be another little second-hand job.
The last place on this earth you want to be driving a shiny new car is Italy, especially southern Italy! Plus, you certainly don’t want to look like a tourist, so with my little bashed up Italian-bought Punto I fit in perfectly! Personally, I believe a few dents are crucial as they do give it the ‘real deal’ effect out there (well that’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it!).
It all got me thinking back to my first car: a blue mini city. I picked it up after passing my test a year previously. I reckon I screamed all the way home driving it back, especially on the Kingston Bypass!
Can you remember what your first car was?
I’d love to hear from you… stay in touch!
