Wakey wakey!


Saw this text in the metro newspaper the other day which made me giggle. Thankfully this hasn't happened to me yet even though i sleep on the train/tube/bus alot. Though sometimes i do wake myself up with a snort which is really mortifying! When that happens i tend to pretend i'm still asleep so i don't have to meet anyone's eye! Another thing i do sometimes is wake up from a dream where i've been eating & find i'm actually moving my mouth as if i really am eating! That's more weird than embarrassing i think!
Maybe the answer is to just get more sleep at night then i wouldn't nod off on my commute?!

if i could turn back time....

found this today & it got me thinking how cool it would be if people really could time travel. no idea where i'd go or what i'd do. it'd be wasted on me though i can't remember what i did 5 minutes ago let alone going back 500 years & trying to remember everything i see & do! maybe it would be useful for me just to go back to yesterday to remember what's what & pop back present day & carry on with what i'm doing?! i'll save the mega important visits for someone else!

wow looking back on that just realised how much i sound like karl pilkington! scary!

A good excuse not to do the washing up....


Did something that's not very me today. I had a manicure! Emhen bought me a voucher for my bday & seeing as my cousin gets married tomorrow i thought why not?!
I sat at the nails inc bar while they filed, soaked, cuticled (think i made up a word there!) & painted my hands feeling like a proper lady wot lunches! Luckily i had mum & dad with me to hold my coat & get things out my bag cos unlike ladies wot lunch i still had to do stuff in london & couldn't just flop into a chauffer driven car & wait for my nails to dry! Mum's already betted me £50 they'll be chipped before tomorrow! Really hope i can prove her wrong but don't want to cross my fingers cos i'll end up catching a nail!

Read all about it!


I've never even thought about reading a book by salman rushdie but when i was in india i was in my favourite place- landmark & needed to buy a book (or 4!) Ok ok i only picked it up at first cos it had a guitar on the front(!) but i quite like the way it's been written.
I then looked up who rushdie was cos i knew his name but didn't know why & found out about everything. Since then he's been everywhere! Tv, papers, gossip pages you name it he's there!
Good to know i'm such a trend setter that as soon as i start to read summit the world follows! (It's either that or the fact he's got a new book out? You decide!)

A chance to retrace my steps....


Needed a bit of a giggle on my way home tonight so put on an old ricky gervais podcast that i'd first heard in lufbra in my final year. The reason i knew this was cos as i was listening to the ramblings of the mad man that is karl pilkington i could see where i'd been walking when i'd first heard it! It was really odd! I could picture walking down leopold st, ashby road, the roundabout, the students union & onto campus......weird that my brain had registered certain sights i'd seen on my way with different words & phrases. Normally i can remember where i was when i heard a song but never the route i walked. How bizarre!

feeling hot hot hot!

i'm in india at the moment designing the rest of our autumn/winter 2011/12 collection that we'd started in august. i'm in mumbai & thought it was pretty warm here (about 25-30degrees) untill i got to gujarat visiting the mills & process houses for 2 days! there it was 45degrees outside & then in the mills it was about 55degrees! i've never felt heat like it! we actually had sweat dripping down our faces while we selected fabrics, who said fashion was glamourous?! i can't believe people were working in those conditions, then again they have no choice, which is pretty rotten. luckily we had an air-conditioned car waiting for us that we leapt in to cool down again but they don't have that privilage. normally i complain that the a/c is too high & i'm cold but this time it was so appreciated! even when we got off the plane in mumbai at 8:30pm & it was still 30degrees that felt so much cooler! it's really steamy over here at the moment too. i get ready in my a/c (quite cold, but can't change the temp!) room & then step outside into the hallway which isn't a/c & straight away my glasses steam up & i can't see a thing! dread to think what it's doing to my camera, hopefully it's ok, otherwise it'll create some interesting effects on the film! :S am actually leaving it my room now for the rest of my stay so it'll only get a bit steamy when i leave on, don't want to risk it!
anyways have babbled on enough now, i'm sure i'll miss the heat when i'm back in blighty but for now i'd do anything for chilly autumn morning! i dunno, us brits are never happy!

The un-written rules of....


....sitting on the underground.
When you watch people pretty much everyone does it. First the two end seats go, then as people get on they fill in the gaps always leaving one seat between them & the next person. The tricky bit is what happens when you have to fill in those gaps? Whos personal space (i.e armrest) do you invade & whos do you leave?! Decisions decisions!
