Outfit: Sunny Monday




LK Bennett Zella navy wedge

Well, after a weekend of torrential downpours it has finally stopped raining! The forecast for today is for sunshine and highs of 17°C – much better than the freezing 6 or 7°C it was yesterday. And Saturday. And Friday. And well, most of April really.


The weekend was a bit of a washout really. Friday night the young man’s aunty came for tea then we went to the show. The cast and orchestra put on another winning performance and I didn’t mind a bit that I’d seen it two nights in a row.


Saturday morning looked promising, weather-wise, but by the time I’d done a load of washing I got as far as hanging three items on the line before it started raining. And it rained on and off (but mostly on) all day. I baked a cake, made some scones, made a quiche, made some porridge pancakes and generally enjoyed a lazy day around the house. I read the new issue of In Style magazine in the conservatory (there was a little sunshine between the showers making it warm enough to sit in there) whilst the young man did some work on his laptop. Saturday evening we watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on DVD. It has a ton of big names in (Daniel ‘James Bond’ Craig, Christopher ‘Sound of Music’ Plummer, Robin ‘Princess Bride’ Wright, Stellan ‘Mamma Mia’ Skaarsgard, Alan ‘Jim Robinson’ Dale) and we quite enjoyed it, despite it being a bit weird and graphic in places.

Sunday I had all these grand plans to take some instagram-style photos and make a collage of my weekend, but I didn’t get round to it. We stayed in the house all day again as the rain was practically horizontal by this point. I read Hello! magazine, did some ironing, did some more washing and faffed around on the internet. We watched a documentary about electricity on BBC4 in the evening and then a dreadful made-for-TV kind of movie called Tim, which starred a very young Mel Gibson (it was made in 1979) who spent much of the time in very tight shorts so it wasn’t all bad. It also starred Violet Carnegie from Flying Doctors, and the chap who was married (in real life) to Helen Daniels from Neighbours. I love Australian movies as there’s always someone in them you recognise.

Today I have high hopes that the weather forecast will be right and have dressed accordingly. It was actually properly light for the first time this morning when I woke up. But even so, roll on next Monday when it’s a bank holiday and I don’t have to get up early! I’m off to the gym for Body Conditioning class tonight and then will be having a quiet evening in.

  1. Fine look! Tan and navy colors fit each other! Are the wedges (very nice!) also from the stock never displayed before?
