I'm going to have to eventually have this excellent Red Phoenix necklace surgically removed from around my neck because I wear it all the time. Meanwhile the liquid fertiliser's kicked in and a few things are blooming round here.
I loved reading your comments about what everyone does for a living. Makes me wonder what the hell I've been doing with my own life.
Still baking bread on a daily basis. So easy and comforting.
Celebrated a Milestone Birthday with friends
Remember this Philip Lim dress I wore to my 40th?
Well I wheeled it out on Friday night for the Pyjama Foundation's Charity Gala.
It was an excellent night. 4 little boys spoke about how their Pyjama Angels had changed their lives and helped them love reading and improve at school. A uni student also spoke about how her Angel had been the only person she could trust. The lady who was named Pyjama Angel of the year said that she leaves the home after her visits feeling uplifted and like she's made a difference. It was all very moving. I know some of my readers have signed up, so here's the link if you'd like to become a Pyjama Angel.

The iceberg rose is fighting back from its near death experience. I'm going to try to feed and water and lavish the garden with as much attention as I can to try to get it back to speed. Marauding bush turkeys permitting.
I followed H's advice and shoved new feather cushion inserts into my cushion covers to plump them up. Lincraft sells them. Also if you're in the zone for a raspberry velvet $12 cushion Kmart's what you want.
Gorgeous P (my friend who I met at Chanel in Paris in 2013 when she asked if I was FF) sent me this book and I cannot put it down! Such a good read. Thanks P
Meanwhile, the comments on my last post mentioned Work/life balance a lot.
Is it an urban myth? Do you have it? Are you time poor? Burning the candles at both ends?
Let's workshop it as an FF Family.
You know you want to.
