I bought this Noa Noa coat yesterday - I became a big fan of the Hight Street Designer when I was visiting Copenhagen a couple of years ago - I really hope that I will be able to return there one day - but it wont be for a while - still too many painful memories associated with all things Scandinavian - I know it can't last - Scandinavia is too beautiful - it will win me back.
Because I am a sucker for sequins, ever since I saw a black sequin mini skirt hanging from a stall in Camden Market in the '70s. This would be perfect for New Year's Eve.
There is no need to say anything if you have already met the amazingly talented Alabama, but if you have not, do check her clothes and blog and books and patterns.....
Sometimes I feel so utterly feminine and delicate that I dream of the places where I could dress like this.
I think this is the perfect collection of Christmas Crockery, and serving dishes, I am going to start a collection like this (just as soon as I have the cupboard space!)
I am baking bread today - one loaf, with a spoonful of honey, for me and mine::
500gm of Strong Flour
350 ml of luke warm water
7g sachet of dried yeast
1tsp each of salt and sugar
one big dessertspoon of honey
Mix - Knead - Leave to Rise - punch and roll once more - place on tray or in tin, well floured - leave it to do it's thing for about an hour or so and then bung it in the oven - spray the oven with water if you want a crust - don't if you don't.
220* Temp - for about 30 mins or so until the bread taps hollow on the bottom.
Consume at your leisure, with Welsh Salted Butter and home made (thank you Mam) Plum Jam!
I eat it while it's hot!
