...an old Git!! So he tells me anyway. He's just come back from walking the dogs, with his slippers on. Never mind John, it's not that embarrassing!
We went to Castle Point shopping early yesterday morning before the weekend crowds hit and it was still lovely and calm (we hate shopping). I needed some new eyeshadow but could someone please explain to me the process the women behind the makeup counters go through in the mornings? It's sad to see what would normally pass as attractive young women caked in thick slap, 4 inch long eye lashes and oil slick lip gloss bearing down on you with latest product inhand. As for the older one still stuck in the '60's, very hit and miss affair with the very red lippy, doing a passable Barbara Cartland x Baby Jane impression. It's enough to put you off buying any products.
We've had Mike down with us and he managed to pick up Elsa yesterday morning so she could stay last night. Always nice to have them here even for short visits.
The Hever project is moving very slowly though it is making some progress. I have an urge just to do something uncomplicated today. Perhaps I'll just go and fiddle with some fabric. Mind you the roses need deadheading first and it's not too hot...
