This and That

A week or so ago we had a bit of this.

I dressed up like a baglady, it was so cold. I am wearing 4 jumpers in this pic, no kidding.

I realised I had to put in place a winter warmth strategy. Comforting soups and casseroles? Hot water bottles? Wooly hats? Thermal underwear? Thick socks?

NO! Instead I bought this. Obvious, really. Nothing better than a silk scarf to keep out the cold.


It's Hermes Groenland, who could resist a scarf with husky pups and polar bear pups on it?


Study this pic carefully.  Do you see the tiny rip in the sofa cover? I know, it's hard to spot.
Someone who shall remain nameless, MONTY DOG, did that.
With all the cold I am dreaming of summer and this.

From here
And I have been trying out this, very woody and exotic, love it.

Tom Ford, Bois Marocain

I am going to be Talitha Getty in Marrakesh, but without the youth, good looks, money and the sad ending. Or indeed Marrakesh.  I expect we will go to Bournemouth.

The best exotic North African perfume I have tried is this. Divine.  What about you?  Tell me your perfume secrets!

Andy Tauer, L'Air du Desert Marocain

Last night we finished watching Series 5 of this.

What a ride! And I now know the French for a "grass" which I am sure will come in useful. 


That is what my sweet husband gave me for Valentine's Day.

This is what I gave him. That man is a saint to put up with me.

In my defence it does look just like Monty Dog.

And that, as they say, is that. Or this?
