rain drops and headscarves
One week into to summer and it is starting to warm up! At least a little. This is from the weekend before last, when it was not exactly summery... one of those rainy and dark grey but still really bright days that mean I can barely open my eyes without my sunglasses. This is turn means that I get to make silly faces when I try it. I had a party to go to later that evening, so I wore a headscarf over my pincurls – dry hair during the day, and, hopefully, curls later. Of course it poured on the way to the party and I got absolutely soaked and so had straight hair all of five minutes later, but what can you do? At least I can say I tried.
This 1970s purple polka dot dress has been getting a fair bit of wear lately. Tt's been perfect for these cooler days. I have a few similar-but-not-identical long ribbed socks that I've been wearing as stockings, too; I am just so tired of wearing tights and it just seems to wrong to need to! Bare legs are almost here again...
A bee took a fancy to John and settled down on his lapel. Bee refused to leave and hitched a ride with us over a main road and round a corner, and it took some vigorous jacket-shaking to send him back on his own independent path. Maybe he felt he fitted in best on the tweed.
