Hi my dearies, I hope 2018 is treating you fine so far. I think the general trend for the new year is for us to resolve to have no resolutions. They don't seem to work and tend to be rather draconian, perhaps that is why they aren't favoured. I prefer a light touch with most things these days. Little tweaks to our lifestyles make a difference.
So no resolutions other than to tackle things with that light touch.
Like reoccurring minor health probs. Of late I get sinusitis each year around Christmas time. Yeah, great eh! But now that I recognise what it is and that it's an annual thing, when the going gets tough I don't fret but simply take to antibiotics after a few weeks. This winter's started on Christmas Day and I'm now on penicillin and feeling so much better.
I have to start feeling better because of a big parcel which has arrived at the door.
#so excited as it contains a little surprise. More on that in my next post!
In the meantime, I keep snug in grey suede boots and a muffler.
My Dotty P bardots are perfect for this time of year.
I can play around with the neckline, depending on the weather ... and my state of health! Such a great innovation. Here I wanted snuggly neck rather than chilly bardot shoulders.
The bardot and coated jeans combo (yes, THEM again!) is starting to feeling like my Winter Uniform at the moment. But I need warmth and comfort and they are delivering that in spades. Simple winter dressing, easy pickings when I want an outfit to find itself. And all I can add on this is that it could be a lot worse, it could be harem pants and t shirt, ad infinitum, which is what I wore during last winter's poorliness!
I'm wondering if you have a Winter Uniform? Something that you find yourself not wanting to prise yourself out of? Or going to with little thought? Maybe it looks a lot like mine. Or maybe you stay uber-glam even as the temperatures drop or when you're feeling poorly.
And now let's move away from what this sniffly old bird's wearing and see what a truly beautiful bird wears!
His amazing OOTD, every day. Brown, purple and electric blue - who would have known those colours would work together?!
This beautiful pheasant has been popping round to the Chez Pout Bistro of late. He's been picking up the morsels dropped by the diners who can make it up on to the bird table and the hanging feeders. He's too big to swing from the feeders so for him it's the easy pickings, no effort required.
Check out his white shirt collar!
He's become really quite matey. He's curious about us. I'm thinking he'd like to pop into the house, but I'm not too sure how Bertie would take it.
A la perchoine.
