Thank feck it's Friday, it's been a loooong week!
I am officially over Winter.........despite having missed 5 weeks of it........ungrateful wench that I am!
I am gagging for Spring, and if I could, I would just hole up in our little home and not pop my head out until the first blossoms come........

Winter sucks in any hemisphere I find - know the feeling of wanting to hide away - good for you chasing the winter blues away by loading up on lots of fabulous red though! Love that knubbly coat.

Vix said...

I hate the winter and anyone who disagrees is either a freak or lives in a sub-tropical climate! You look freaking fabulous in red, that coat is so soft and deliciously snuggly and your booboids look truly magnificent!
Have a fantastic time with the divine Miss V, take photos!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

GOD - I KNOW!! I hate winter so much and I am also SO OVER it!! Bleh!

We got some sun today, but its hard to really get inspired about life when you're freezing your butt off.

You look awesome in RED! SO FABULOUS!

Louise said...

Even though it's winter there it still looks nice and sunny. You look gorgeous in red, and I do love that brooch you made. Have a fab weekend lovely lady. Xx

Perdita said...

LOVE the red on you. Winter does utterly suck... what a shame we can't just hibernate and ignore it.

The Grande Dame said...

Wow. You look amazing in all red! I just sat staring at the first photo not knowing what to think! You look like a little flame keeping yourself all toasty warm. That brooch is super cute xxx

lasophia said...

You make winter look good! I'm actually wishing it was winter here for the first time in my life! Summer used to be my favorite. Next summer when my womb is not full anymore. Happy spring to you.

Kitty said...

Right add that coat to the list of items you are generously giving me/I am going to steal off you. Love it and it looks freaking fabulous on you.

Fab brooch, the princesses was an inspired touch. I'm afraid you have to have winter a bit longer, we've only just got our Summer!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

I can't see your legs properly. Are they zebra legs?

Bonnie said...

What a beautiful spot you chose for the pics. You are the lady in red and I must say your booboids are looking rather spectacular today! Love the brooch too.

Lovely Red Riding Hood tripping through the woods! What beautiful photos, and even though you don't have a hood you still look like a story I'd be interested in. Like the others said, you look fantastic in red!

Oh darling, I couldn't agree more - I am thoroughly DISGUSTED with winter and absolutely ready for some lovely Spring days.

You look exquisite as always - I do ADORE you in red, the coat is DIVINE and your new sunnies are just fabularsehole. Hope your dinner with dear Miss V was splendid.

Love you more than Spring blossoms, Sarah xxx

pastcaring said...

You look resplendent in red, as always, and though you are fed up of winter, it looks sunny and crisp and beautiful, which is better than dull, wet and grey, which is what our summer has been like until the last week or so!
Hope you took lots of photos of your evening with dear Vanessa, I am salivating at the thought of what you both wore! xxxxxx

Ulla-Marie said...

You look so tough that maybe I should loose all selfconfidence at a meeting with you. Maybe lucky I live in Sweden ...
