This is a really quick update at the end of the working week. I’m currently sitting in bed, with a large fan next to me, and I am absolutely gasping for breath in the heat. Earlier, I went out into the garden to hang out the washing and I couldn’t believe how warm it was.
Sadly, my serious mental health issues mean that I only feel safe and secure in my bedroom. If I put my head outdoors, I am immediately terrified. So, whilst I can do very quick outdoor tasks, I still cannot bring myself to sit outside with a book, as I would have done in previous summers. I will try again tomorrow.
Apparently, Hermès UK should be putting some of the new Autumn/Winter 2020 scarves and shawls online from tomorrow. I do hope so. I have been following the relevant thread on The Purse Forum for ages and I think I now know which scarves and colourways would work for me. But it is so hard to decide!
I have a plan to buy a shawl this season. They are humongously expensive, but, as I don’t spend my money on lavish (or even basic) entertainment, I think that I can save up for one. Add in my birthday money (November) and Christmas cash (yes, this is serious forward planning) and maybe one will be within my reach!
One of these gorgeous Plumes en Fête 140cm cashmere/silk shawls is my goal (if you click on an image, you will see a larger version plus the code number in small type beginning with an H)…
… but which would be best? As I already have a 140cm cashmere/silk shawl in blues from Liberty of London, I am thinking of getting a colourway which will look lovely with grey. Any ideas? (Bear in mind that the colours in these images are not quite accurate, to help prevent fraud).
Please let me know your preferences in the comments. It would be so helpful.
Love and best wishes,
