I had to shop for a 21st present today, dear reader. The gift is for my son's girlfriend who I am completely besotted with so you can imagine the handwringing that went on prior to leaving the house. What to get one so lovely? I had a vague plan but on the train, clickety-clack, clickety-clack, I had a flash of inspiration. I knew exactly what I could get her and next week I will show you! I can't make it public right now, you understand. In case there's...a leak. Suffice to say I did not have to get the gift in town so spent the entire morning shopping for my Selfish Self. Here's what I bought and here's what I wore. Winter in Melbourne is slowly coming to a close and there was even a chance to go coat-free today. A brief interlude, of course. Himself also insisted on taking a 'shelfie' of me beside my new book, Romy Bright. The shelfie is what all hipster authors are taking nowadays so I thought, why not? (I guess it's not quite a shelfie if someone else takes it though. Or perhaps I am overthinking?)
I apologise for the photos. Yes, they're phone photos and I feel very sheepish indeed. So much for my grand declaration when I re-opened Baxter Street. No more dodgy photos. What can I say? I am well-meaning, dear reader, truly I am. But I am also...disorganised. Gertie is on the charger which is Not Helpful when inspiration strikes.
I hope you are having a beautiful, peaceful weekend wherever you may be. Stay sparkly. Jen xx
