Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me by Lucia Van Der Post. It’s a dip in and out of book, with loads of handy tips and info on all sorts, from skincare, through shopping, style, cooking, throwing parties etc etc. There’s even tips on how to pack for a weekend away on a yacht (I wish!).
The Proposal. Watched this on DVD last night and really enjoyed it. I do like a good old romcom!
… Charity Shop Shopping
Having missed the car boot on Sunday, I was glad to get my bargain hunting fix with half an hour rummaging through two of my fave charity shops this morning. As well as a very nice pair of winter cropped trousers for me still with their tags attached for £3, I bought the following to sell: kids’ DKNY sweatshirt 50p, brand new tap shoes £3.50 and cute Morgan handbag £1.
William, who’s away on his PGL Activity Holiday. He phoned last night (his first night) and seemed to be really enjoying himself. It’s fantastic fun – they’re doing wall climbing, zip wires, quad biking, canoeing, raft building – just heaven for an adventurous 10 year old. I can’t wait to pick him up on Saturday morning and hear all about it.
