T gave me this genius notebook when I was in London last. She knows me so well. I’ m a headless chicken today: tidying, cleaning, ironing, making lunch, curling bloody hair, slapping on the make-up, packing…
God I hate packing. I’m leaving this afternoon for ten days or so in New York…it’s only an hour away on the train, but I haven’t been in the city for five weeks, owing to an unscheduled trip back to London for a funeral, which was extended for another one. I’ve been given the use of some friend’s apartments whilst they are both out of town, so I thought it might be a good idea to shake the hayseeds out of my hair, see some editors & drink some cocktails.
I’m extremely excited to see my friends, but equally shall miss the boys and the Hounds. I’d hate for them to think that I am hot-footing it back to NY at the first opportunity – but I do think they need a break from me from time to time.
I normally travel with a small shoulder bag and my laptop, but this time I am dragging my huge Tumi with me. I moved out to Jersey at a couple of day’s notice at the beginning of July, so brought only summer clothes & shoes with me. Although it’s still in the seventies here, the mercury is going to drop later this week, and I am thoroughly bored with all my floaty frocks and sandals. So, I’ve washed & ironed my summer clothes to put back into storage until next Spring or Los Angeles, whichever comes sooner, and am going for a forage in my Chelsea storage container for my winter wardrobe.
