It’s been an incredibly busy week all round. It’s press day season for the SS12 collections, so there are appointments to be done, in addition to my normal working week of meetings, email wrangling (I get over 2500 a week), blog admin, writing and all the rest. It doesn’t leave me with a lot of time for dealing with curve balls or seeing friends, two areas of my life which need some serious attention.
I dealt with the seeing with friends bit by cooking supper for five girlfriends yesterday (Wednesday), which I managed to throw together when I got home at 530pm from a day of meetings, but the curve balls are still curving. See my dining room above with my 1960s Heals chrome & glass table and matching chairs? Looks lovely doesn’t it? What you can’t see are the knackered old chairs piled up to the side of the photo – part of the unwanted furniture mountain left in my supposed-to-be unfurnished apartment by the landlady when I moved in, along with a dog pee-stained floor rug, Ikea prints in peeling frames and other choice items.
I’m still wrangling to get it all removed. After THREE MONTHS. *sigh* I really could have done without one of the said Ikea prints suddenly falling off the wall in the kitchen during dinner last night, narrowly missing my 1930s crystal wine glasses. Ah, well, at least I have witnesses.
