Every year, at this time, there's this hope for spring and summer. The hope that you'll do it better this year, that your closet will be the stuff of dreams. Mind you this is usually before you add it all up but regardless of whether it comes together in reality or not, it's the dreaming that counts. Soon you'll be able to wear lighter coats and shoes and heaven forbid maybe even show some flesh.

I just found out yesterday that I'm going to be having a baby girl next April and couldn't be happier. Looking forward to all this...
"Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them, The extraordinary will take care of itself." -William Martin

It's only Tuesday and this week is off to a rough start. What I wouldn't give to hang out at home for the rest of it. But tomorrow is hump day, and I've got something to look forward to...more of that later.

Still thinking of going back to school. Looking into all the opinions and trying to work out what to apply for--you almost need a degree just to work out how to apply for one. Studying used to be a chore but now I see it more as something I want to do. I want to know more about what I'm interested in and it's kind of thrilling to think that it might actually be possible.

Feels like I've been so busy this weekend but without really having done much...strange. It's been a sky of endless grey here and you think that's dull, it is, but it was pointed out to me today that constant blue skies and hot weather could be equally as uninteresting. Maybe that's true. Maybe constant change, or lack of, is more interesting because it forces you to look inward for inspiration.

The hair I want seems to change weekly, but that might have something to do with the changing season. At the moment long, unruly curls are in favour. It's raining again today, but I've been waltzing around in this Isabel Marant-esque cropped shearling jacket I bought yesterday and it's so soft and cosy...I think I'm in love. On top of that Lena Dunham's book just arrived.

At home sick, wishing I weren't and trying to distract myself from my misery with the promise of next year's summer. Next year is also the year we go back to visit family and friends in Australia, so we essentially get two summers. Not bad.

Good friends share wine, or not, secrets and funny self-defacing stories. They're inappropriate and loud when it's called for (which is most of the time), frequently cut each other's sentences off and say they love you in passing.

Fresh back from our Santorini trip with a tan, bleached-out highlights and more freckles. It was beautiful, all lava beaches, gum trees (if you can believe it-a gift from Australia apparently), cliffs and an excess of tomatoes. There's nothing like getting out, seeing and doing new things to break the monotony of routine. It was a new kind of holiday for me- sunbeds replaced sand, summer hits played in the background and you were constantly surrounded by an array of languages. Before the trip was even over, I was already thinking about where to go next....Positano, maybe....Yep, definitely got bit by the bug.

We've just come back from staying at a friend's country house for a few days and it's stinking hot in the city. I'm looking at all these summer images and wondering if it's really possible to feel as beautiful as they look when it's this hot. I think maybe in a place that's more used to taking the heat- somewhere like Greece. Have just started my 'To Pack & To Wear' list now.
