I am still feeling very dizzy, weak and ill. Elder Son was in super fuss-mode this morning, which is very wearing. I worry when he starts on like this that it will develop into a full melt-down. He went out for the day and I am hoping that he has calmed down when he gets home again.
Younger Son has been cleaning my car as we have now insured him to drive it! I will be taking him out in it as soon as I feel a bit better. But the thought of him driving on his own fills me with dread, although he is a very sensible lad.
I only managed a couple of hours downstairs before coming back up to bed. We watched a recorded episode of Holby City, plus Jeremy Corbyn’s speech. I am still very worried about what will happen in this country, before, during and after the General Election.
I don’t usually wear the same scarf more than once in a week, but was not in the mood to change over. So today’s outfit is:
- Silk scarf, 90cm – Au Pays des Oiseaux Fleurs – Hermès. Knotted like a tie to show off the lovely hem (see the second picture for a close-up of the hem).
- Bright teal cotton mix cardigan – Lands’ End.
- Dark navy cotton mix short-sleeved top – Lands’ End.
- Navy cotton jeans – Cotton Traders.
- London blue topaz earrings – Blue Nile.
- Navy enamel and gold patterned wide bangle – Halcyon Days.
I also played with another knot later in the day – this half-bow knot is one of my favourites as it really shows off the scarf, although perhaps it can look a bit fussy and overdone for a casual outfit. It would look great with a plain shift dress for evenings, but then I don’t wear plain shift dresses on an evening these days!
I nearly used a smaller version of the above photo, but thought that the details would be more visible in this larger size.
I finished Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner yesterday evening. The book was an enjoyable mystery with a touch of the supernatural. Characters from Gardner’s other books were old favourites, but the two main protagonists were very strange, intentionally so. I have written a short review on Goodreads – it is so useful and interesting to track my reading on that site.
After watching the the series on the TV, I decided that I wanted to re-read Len Deighton’s SS-GB. I think I probably read this in the early 80s, so have forgotten the written version of the story. This is an ebook that I have borrowed from the public library’s digital collection – it is very easy to read on my iPad. I have two ebook and three print books in my reading queue before I will turn to the new John Connolly that I mentioned yesterday.
