we can all breathe a sigh of relief because youngest has been reunited with her heels and bobby brown paraphernalia, hair products and a shedload of clothes......is this really university I hear you say?. A place to suck up all that knowledge, wear baggy jumpers, go bare faced and drink pints in the student bar....is it heck.
We battled through the snow up the A1 to Sheffield and boy was there a lot of it there, albeit turning to slush in the midday sun....ruined my new suede boots...what a chuff for wearing them.
Unpacked, had a delicious brunch in a great restaurant called relish and then back in the car for 3 hours. (animal farm dramatised on radio 4 provided the entertainment...excellent.)
Today finished this top and messed about with fabric and machine....perfect Sunday.
On Friday I went to the V & A in London to see the Hollywood costume exhibition.Boy was it packed and that was with timed tickets....I wasn't impressed with the layout of the exhibition....the first room was a bottleneck so it wasn't really possible to read all the blurb about the costumes without feeling you were holding everyone else up...I did witness one very unseemly argument and shove.....whats wrong with people!
The Monroe dress was there ..several Elizabeth I dresses, my favourite being the Bette Davis...as I am a huge fan. Audrey Hepburn's black number (seeing that made a woman cry!).... Kate Winslets opening striped number from Titanic.... Marlene Dietrich's falling in love outfit and a ton more.
the 'curtain dress from gone with the wind....love that bit
and my fave was the waitress outfit from Mildred Pierce....the Joan Crawford version.
I adore that film.(the Winslett mini series doesnt touch it) ....anyhow I cant suggest you go cos it finishes today. Would have been fabulous with a handful of people there though.
Have a great week everyone.....and hey....no snow yeah!
