I'm intending to make good on my promise to spend less time on the internet. Or at least I hope I will be! My husband is away and after a very long evening putting three little imps to bed, I thought it would be nice to have a quiet day today. What better way to indulge myself than watching a very old favourite from my childhood? I think Thoroughly Modern Millie is relatively unknown but I discovered two other fans through Twitter, namely Helen Just Nice Things and Kenneth Soh. I look forward to recreating the lift scene in my living room later!
I will also be wearing my 'pirate' earrings. My eldest boy that has become fascinated with me wearing earrings, referring to both pairs below as pirate earrings. If I don't wear them, he will go and fetch them for me and apparently, when he is a grown up, he'll have holes in his ears so he can wear pirate earrings too. I haven't broken the news to him yet that he's going to have to keep his hands off!
The first pair are by Ottoman Hands* and were sent to me as a sample. Although I tend to favour silver jewellery, I really like the detailing and the beads. The second pair were a Christmas gift from my Mum and were originally bought by my Grandma. My Grandma was an artist and she also had a passion for shopping at flea markets and car boot sales. She travelled a lot and made some very interesting finds over the years including some unusual jewellery pieces. I have no doubt this pair will have come from one of her scouting missions. Although these earrings are more delicate than I usual go for, I still think they are very me.
Also, my plans for today include reading more of this...
It's like One Day all over again! I'm reading this as I am keen to watch the film adaptation. Well, both of the film adaptations really. I'm not yet at 100 pages but I can see myself getting very absorbed by this book.
What does Friday have in store for you?
