I actually managed a walk this morning! As I was feeling very sluggish and sleepy, I took the bull by the horns and dragged myself out of bed, late morning, and walked around the block. On a good day, this usually takes me less than ten minutes at a reasonably fast pace, but this time it was around fifteen. For the last few yards, I was staggering a bit and I must have looked tipsy to any passers by, but I did it!
I am feeling very pleased indeed even if my legs are now complaining – 😁.
This scarf, by Roberto Cavalli, doesn’t come out of my scarf drawer very often. It is a large rectangular silk satin stole. The centre of the design is in gorgeous blues and reminds me of the Aegean Sea. The blues then shade into animal print in browns around the border. I pretend that I am somewhere warm and exotic when I wear it. It would look great worn with a strappy maxi dress whilst dining in a Greek restaurant overlooking the sea. (Pause, whilst I remember nights spent with souvlaki, Greek salad, rough crusty bread, olives and red wine… and, perhaps, a handsome Greek… don’t go there!).

I also wore my new pull-on shoes in navy nubuck by Hotter and they were so comfortable on my walk. Here is a reminder…
Lovely Husband is spending the day, the 75th anniversary of D-Day, thinking about his father who was very badly wounded on D-Day plus 4. He was severely burned when the tank he was in blew up and spent several nights immersed in mud in a bomb crater before being found. It is a miracle that he recovered and went on to have a family. He was only 25 when this happened, younger than our two sons are now. That fact really shocks me! Sending best wishes to those of you who have been affected by war.
