Happy New Year one and all

Well Happy blooming New Year to you all!

I don't know about you but i'm really looking forward to getting back into some sort of normal routine. Whereas Christmas was spent catching up with family and eating till I burst, New Years Eve was spent boozing, dancing the night away at Norman Jay's Good Times at Battersea Arts Club with friends, followed by a 48 hour lockdown at home. Oh yes, it's been a good two weeks.  And I even managed to squeeze in making a skirt (blog post coming soon). So of course all my plans for lovely end of year round up on the blog and promises of all the things i'm going to achieve in 2012 went out the window. Pffff, life is for living, and i've had a fab couple of weeks, and I hope you have too!

This is my New Years Eve outfit.  If you follow me on Twitter you'll know I left getting an outfit until the last minute, at usual, so spent a fun two hours running round the shops trying to pull something together.  And low and beyond it was Primark who came to the rescue.  Yup, minus the shoes this whole ensemble is Primarni. I was going for a Madonna meets Desperate House Wife vibe.  The Bot wasn't entirely sure about the whole 'underwear as outerwear' and the boys continued to make jokes at my expense, "So, are you gonna get dressed before we go out, blah blah blah blah".  They were just jealous they couldn't go out in their pants.

And so normal life resumes. As is tradition the Bot and I always take the first working day of the year off so another day of slothing lies ahead for me.  But for the rest of you, I hope your first day back at work isn't too painful. xx
