Oh hi! Is anyone still out there? There’s been a deafening silence from this blog for well over a week, so I wouldn’t blame you if you’ve tuned out. I’ve been so crazy with new work and handling social media stuff for lots of different people that I have neither interesting news, nor interesting photos to post.
I do have some slightly boring photos and general waffling though, so perhaps that’ll do?
I would like to say a big festive HELLO to my (probably) oldest readers, who are a group of ‘little old dears’ (their words) who live in a care home in St Louis. They write me lovely, lovely emails through the daughter of a sadly passed friend. I’ve had two so far, and both have delighted me beyond measure! They praise my blog (which they like to call a ‘bog’) and they admire my vintage look but they didn’t like my fringe/bangs when I cut it/them back in April. They wrote to me again just this week saying how glad they were that I’d grown it back out (although there’s a fair way to go!). Apparently when I am old and wrinkly like them (they wrote), then I’ll be allowed to have a nice thick fringe again. I love the fact that I can make the older generation so happy just by being me, more than I can say. So thank you, ladies and thank you Miss K who owns a laptop and writes what they say to me!
They sent me this picture of ‘holiday cheer’, which is pretty cheery, I must say.
I was going to film a video message, but I just haven’t had the time. Boo to me.
The ladies like to say that I manage to ‘infuse’ my modern outfits with a true vintage sensibility. I can conveniently illustrate this with some photos I took the other day to send to my casting agency. They had to be ‘smart’, but also show me as I am. This outfit is typical of what I wear almost every day at the moment, due to not being able to fit into my Heyday trousers (still! I wish I could say I’ve tried to lose this extra weight… but I haven’t).
I’ll post again before Christmas, hopefully with something festive and colourful to show you. I’m not really in the spirit yet as I haven’t even put my Christmas tree up (mostly because my fairylights have stopped working)… and I haven’t done most of my shopping either, argh! As the title of the post suggests, I am actually looking forward to a week of sleep and naps and lie-ins more than anything else.
Are you ready for the big festive event?
