Big shout out and thank you to everyone who commented last night on my post from yesterday. Woke up refreshed and renewed and we're heading to the OUTDOOR pool ; )
Just some proof that I really do like maxis. Somewhere I've even got a shot of me in one from the first time round (the 70s). These were shot last summer in Southampton, and occur somewhere on my posts from then if you want to have a look round July and August. That's me on the left - part of a photo shoot with my niece Scarlett, then 7.5 years (that's how she decorated her birthday cake). I wish I could show you how gorgeous she looked in the shoot, which she styled for us both, down to the bracelet on my hand (£4, Primark, last season) and the fans she found in my mom's desk drawer. I look a bit silly, but who cares. The dress is I think Gap, it's really old, really light and comfortable on a languid muggy summer evening, feels like a nightgown, and doesn't wrinkle. Unlike yours truly, who does.
And for you youngsters out there who don't know this great Paul Simon song from the 80s. I especially like the line 'Faith? Faith is an island in the setting sun. Proof, proof is the bottom line for everyone.'
Turn up your speakers and sing along with Paul:
