Monday Inspiration : Mary Kate Olsen and Monday Letters

Monday, November 26, 2012

Hello, hello!

Failed at Friday's Letters last week... again.

Dear Monday, We're never going to be great friends but just occasionally we seem to call a truce - like today.

Dear X Factor, Chris Maloney. Seriously?

Dear Boiler, Thank you for not having a terminal or expensive fault. If you could see your way to lasting just a few more years I'd really, really appreciate it.

Dear Boyfriend, Thank you for getting the boiler fixed and my apologies for being a grumpy cow, you know how I hate to be cold.

Dear Pampered Chef Party Demonstration Lady, You're good. You're really good. I came along with a steely resolve to spend no more than £30. I restrained myself for approximately 15 minutes before I crumbled and spent a small fortune.

Dear Show and Stay, Thank you for making the experience of booking a show, hotel and train tickets to London an absolute breeze.

Dear Workmen, Thanks for cancelling two days before you were due to insulate my loft and fill my cavity walls. If you could pull your finger out that would be awesome!

Dear Self, Stop moaning and look on the bright side - you're warm (hurrah!), you have a trip to London to look forward to (ditto), your boyfriend has finally got through a stupidly busy time at work so you'll be seeing more of him (huge hurrah!) and the acupuncture you're having for your sinusitis is beginning to take effect. Life is good.

And so to Inspiration Monday. I joined in last week but didn't find a minute to take any outfit shots. I honestly didn't know if I was coming or going for most of last week and it's set to get busier!

This shot was taken surreptitiously, which explains a lot! I have a nightshirt that would have suited this inspiration so much better but work draw the line at PJ's, more's the pity!

Hope you have a fab week.

Lots of love
