Things I am loving today
The film Charade, for Audrey Hepburn’s outfits, the many red herrings, and Paris in the sixties
Watching the above film on Sunday afternoon while eating chocolate tart and raspberries and drinking red wine
The amazing CD Rachel made me, with dozens of tracks that would be perfect for the Actionettes to dance to
My new shoes from Office. Brown, flat, slightly 1930s, and very comfy. Tempted to buy three more pairs
Property websites. Just found a great one for south-east London
Things I am hating today
The bike courier who missed me by a centimetre (yes, I was a foot off the curb, but the bastard swerved towards me) and the white-van driver who called me a ‘stupid cow’ cos I hesitated five seconds before crossing the street. I’m sure all the people lazily watching the event were surprised to hear the words FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKER!!! Coming from the mouth of a demure-looking lady wearing pearls and a 50s skirt. Or maybe they are used to it, in Covent Garden. Sadly I am used to idiot drivers trying to kill me every day.
Star spotting in SE11!
Steve was out in the world over the weekend while I was lolling about at home feeling crook, and he saw loads of celebs! Rachel Stevens in Tesco! Laughing with two girlfriends and wearing lots of makeup! Apparently she is very thin in real life, but Steve neglected to peer into her basket and see what she was buying.
Also! Charles Kennedy, leader of the Lib Dems, watering his front garden, which happens to be attached to one of the vast Georgian houses around the corner from me! Wow.
