Rock Sing

You would think that this would be the best restaurant in town. It's the best Chinese restaurant window in town for sure.

List of good things

I just had an unpleasant telephone call from a certain person who shall remain nameless. Towels on the bed, oh my! Flabbergasted, I think I will compose a hot list to cheer myself up.
1. My puppy Rupert.
2. The pale apricot colour paint I finally decided on for my shop.
3. My shop. I'm going to have a shop! I am so excited and nervous.
4. Nick Cave, I am having a retrospective. Henry's Dream is on the turntable.
5. A specially made coffee every morning.
6. Table cloths at home.
7. Sparkling Rosé of an evening
8. Bicycle rides in a short pleated skirt.
9. Gay Carnival Day picnicking.
10. Anna Dello Russo, we can't have too many women like this in the world.

The Mitford Sisters

 I'm reading this at the moment, (interspersed with puppy training books) I loved the whole first section when they were young. The Dowager Duchess writes charmingly and I am so fascinated by the Mitford family. I think Nancy is my favorite. xx

Yma Sumac divina!

Ah, if you want to feel grown-up and glamorous, I suggest listening to a lot of Yma Sumac whilst holding a deadly cocktail, and balancing a preposterous hat upon your noggin. Yma Sumac: Peruvian extreme octave travelling, bird songstress, extraordinaire. Pile on that jewellery. xxx
