The Month of August

A fantastic holiday in The Loire. Drinking Pouilly and Sancerre, bbq's, reading and chatting with friends. Visited La Borne for pottery.

Flirting with Twitter.

Testing which Annouck Goutal perfume to buy.... Tail end of sail bargains.... Cocinelle black leather bag, Jigsaw purple patent t-bar shoes. All Saints denim jacket. Discovered my sunglasses were broken right at the end - do I replace now or next year?

Finding a flat to rent before we become homeless after selling ours... Resting for two weeks at Warmth's parents whilst they're on holiday and we were homeless. Perfect timing.

Toes 'Lacquered Up', nails 'Coral Reef' Essie. Love Coral Reef toenail perfection... 'Mod-ern Gal' OPI on toes and fingers. Then two days back in the classroom sorting it out and my fingernails were wrecked!

Read 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' Lionel Shriver - absolutely loved it. Holiday and house packed brain can't remember what else.

A bbq where I wore hunter wellies rather than summer dress.
Friday night cocktails at The Leather Market and then The Woolpack London Bridge.
Tate Modern 'Exposed' and Francis Alys (strange but absolutely fantastic.)
Anniversary luch at The Oxo Tower, chosen as we bought our rings at a jewellers there.
A random twice in one week mooch along Northcote Road. My godson's sister was wearing a very pretty party dress. She came down stairs wearing it that morning saying
'I just felt I needed to be pretty today....'

Last Friday mooch around Portobello for a while but.... it really will be easy to catch a bus to Spitalfields for after work mooching.

Enjoying the last few days of the summer holidays....


  1. Sounds like a great month! I love this little roundup by the way, I should start keeping a month review in my journal, would be a great thing to look back on someday.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
