and we're off to the races, places, ready, set, the gate is down..

necklace: accessorize (gift)
dress: dorothy perkins // shoes: primark
cardigan: forever 21
This cardigan feels like an old favourite, although it hasn't even been a year since I actually bought it. I guess the wintery reindeer print works to make the stripes on this dress a little less summery.

Worn for a trip to the dentist (which took annoyingly long, meaning I got back to the car just as the traffic warden was photographing the ticket he'd just left on my car for outstaying my welcome- gaah, how to make trips to the dentist worse?!) and then the rest of the day putting out the metaphorical fires which come with the day to day running of my business. I love it, really I do. Sometimes I just have to remind myself of the good things.

Currently in a bit of a sleepy slump, so have dragged my eyes away from the numbers I've been trying to balance for most of the day, in order to have a little blogging break. I think the effects of the weekend, combined with not enough sleep in the preceding days are finally beginning to catch up on me.  It was a rather lovely weekend though, filled with birthday meals, breakfasts and a trip to Liverpool yesterday for Sunday brunch with some lovely Liverpool ladies. Most excitingly, I picked up a tortoise table, in readiness for picking up my new tortoise in a couple of weeks.

This evening I have my guides' halloween party, and also plans to make for their weekend away. It's going to have a Wizard of Oz theme, so I need to dig out some (or possibly make some, as I have a sneaking suspicion I don't actually have any) red glitter shoes!

    Cor, you're getting a tortie? But what on earth is a tortoise table?
