Husam el Odeh
I recently went to my friend Husam's studio warming. I blogged about it at midnight so Husam wouldn't have seen what I'd posted. Later the same morning I was woken by my postman with a surprise 'sign for' parcel.
I love surprises and this was totally unexpected
I am over the moon with my present - a silver spoon encrusted in raw crystals from Husam's new collection. Mary - this was your favourite piece too.
I haven't taken it off since
Thank you so much Husam, I absolutely love it! xxx
As predicted we've been having a heatwave in London, here's the best picture I managed of the blue sky.
Sunday was amazing, it was such a beautiful day. I went to my friend's Danny, Russ and Frances' two doors down for a barbeque at lunchtime and then to John and Lizzy's with Jon Cooke and Jo Butler in the evening for Pimms, Prosecco, poached salmon and Jersey royals. I had a lovely day and night, it makes a change to be able to sit outside all night in this country.
Today was boiling but not as sunny. I went for long walk and when I got home I found a stray Crabbie's alcoholic ginger beer in the fridge. I'm loving this drink at the moment. I think I'd need about twenty for them to actually have any affect on me.
I'm so behind on blogging and reading again but sunny days are so few and far between I thought I should make the most of it. I'm on a huge catch up with blog reading and I'm grabbing every hour I can. I promise to visit everyone asap. I've missed you all.
One last thing - I found the full Morrissey quote from my last post. I think it's much better in full. It's from a 1985 interview with David Kelly for the NME.
You've got three minutes to live. Tell us what it is that you're actually and endlessly trying to convey to us.
"If I've got just three minutes... I'll say something that you won't accept... but which I want people to believe... oh stop being so boring Morrissey... I want people to know that almost everything that concerns them in their daily lives is of no consequence whatsoever. Nothing and nobody is really important. Oh, this is so negative... nothing is important so people, realising that, should get on with their lives, go mad, take their clothes off, jump in the canal, jump into one of those supermarket trolleys, race 'round the supermarket and steal Mars bars and, y'know, kiss kittens and sit on the back of bread vans. Whatever makes people happy they should just do it, 'cos time is a mere scratch and life is nothing"
Have a great day, let's hope it's a sunny one. I might go and race around in a shopping trolley. I often try and do it but they tend to have dodgy wheels and you can't get the speed up xxx
