I have been rather absent from the virtual world this week. With so much to do, so little time, and dramas including a site which had stolen all (all) my old blog posts, I have been getting increasingly stressed lately. Finally I exploded into tears on Monday night, and Mr D told firmly me to shut the computer down and take a week off.
Well, I haven’t quite taken the whole week off, but I did give myself a break from listing and blogging, and took the time to read a few books. I must say I am feeling much better and hugely refreshed for it. It is really hard to feel you ‘deserve’ a break when you are your own boss, but it makes such a difference.
This is what I wore to visit my friend Gemma on Sunday. A while ago we discovered we have a mutual love of 70s sitcom The Good Life, and decided to get together and watch some old episodes. I was inspired by Barbara in my choice of outfit – don’t I just look ready to prune broad beans, milk some apricots, and harvest a goat? The only thing properly vintage is my headscarf, but everything else was handed down from others (including the 70s style Peruvian jumper from my mum). I feel Barbara would approve.
Note: I wanted to include livestock in my photos, so roped in Elsa as a fellow model. She was not impressed. See claws for reference.
