i'm special, so special...
i just had a mamma's afternoon out (sans kids).
i walked in to the beauty therapist's room and was greeted with fresh white towels, lilting music, a faint scent of jasmine, and an hour later i walked out with legs waxed, eyebrows shaped like catherine zeta jones' (oh how i covet those brows) and eyelashes dyed blue-black, thanks to a voucher from a bride.
as i approached the car, i realised that i was humming that song in my head.
but wait, there's more: i went s-h-o-p-p-i-n-g. can't have a mamma's day out without a trophy or two: to celebrate the day, i found this divine french provincial candle for my dining table, and a few fake olives (sounds naff, but they look yummy: i am trying to persuade M5 not to take a bite... remind you of any wax apples, Dad??) at a third of their original price, to stack up on the plate that we bought last weekend to commemorate our anniversary.
it's all very autumn, yet with a hint of sunshine.
i think i could get used to this lifestyle...
