Yuk getting older bites dust and so does inflation (in both senses of the word).
There are some grown up pleasures that make things good though. A large glass of quality red. Saving. Wait let us take a moment to appreciate the enormity of saving and that I - that's right me - have saved.
It must mean something when I start the year with something squirrelled away for a rainy day. Years of mama bestowing the words "you must save. Sophie when are you going to start saving? save, save save" must of had some effect but I go with the reason my health is in check physically, spiritually, mentally and err "everything-else-lly?" that financially must have been the last lly. She's so impressed she bought (waiting for item to come back in stock and purchase) me a brand new DSLR for Christmas. Some pleasures - specifically gifting, never grow old.
Anyhow, enough of this serious talk - let's all fly Uber Tropikal Airlines. Get your ticket at Selfridges, where after finishing blog writing and finishing off some work for ze Sketchbook book I will be heading to peruse and touch all the pretty clothes while security circle me suspiciously. Jean Charles De Castelbajac is giving me nostalgia from my youth but in a way that is really saying no to any growing pains, African style.
