It's going to be hot hot hot here today. We moved morning coffee from the front verandah to the back deck: just toooooo hot, even for those of us not wearing golden furry suits. And I 'm thinking this would be a great first day for th... Read more
Difficult to Manage
Saturday, June 25, 2016      24 comments

Flamingo!
Monday, June 20, 2016      20 comments

OK, the new top is pretty, uh, flamboyant for work . . . so I'll tone it down today with very low key "other pieces". Beige cotton pencil skirt (plain, but with a pretty flutter of pleaty detail at the back). And beige linen jacket (I ... Read more

Sunday, June 19, 2016      17 comments

The bird feeder outside my window at work is a source of pleasure and distraction, for me and sometimes my clients too. There is quite an aggressive group of blue-necked, yellow-eyed blackbirds: the squirrel baffler springs are set just tig... Read more
