You know when you come back from a trip away, and everything suddenly seems so dull, so long, so beige, so much dashed EFFORT?
I did, however, have the most wonderful time in Lanzarote and will regale you with tales of my many sports as soon as I have some photos of me completing said activities. And by regale, I mean bore. But I am proud of myself!
But on my return there has been so much to get excited about. I’ve visited the Ideal Home Show to see my Harveys garden, and am soon to be getting my tweed on for the Saturday’s Tweed Run! I’m very excited and this is beating the post-holiday blues as sure as eggs is eggs (and they is indeed eggs). Posts full of glorious technicolour photos of these will follow. But first, here’s a bit about me appearing in a French national newspaper! Yippee!
This feature in Le Figaro Magazine has been eagerly awaited by myself and the VM girls since we spent several days back in April being tailed by the lovely Oliviers (Frebourg and Roques Rogery), who snapped and scribbled the entire time. As such, it was a shame to see so many of the thoroughly British scenarios we set up (punting, picnic, pie and mash shop) didn’t make it into the final edition… I hope to share pictures some of them soon! But until then, here’s the full spread in all its glory!
This image was shot in the What Katie Did London boutique, the girls were such good sports!
More Tweed Run action on the steps of St Paul’s, the girls and I in Victoria Park, and me doing some wonderfully stereotypical tourist stuff, which I often do, of course. 😉 I have sort of read the article, but Naomi will be translating it all for me. I understand it further grasses me up for having dreadlocks as a teenager and for listening to metal (among other things)… hopefully it portrays me in a good light though!
Hurrah for further European notoriety! I am most chuffed.
Hope you are all doing splendidly! Love,
