303 days to go: Forgive me bloggers for I almost sinned.....
Today was a busy day.
I don't normally work on a Saturday.
And I don't normally shop in Liverpool on a Saturday.
But I did both.
I had organised a series of book signing and meet the author events for my friend, Jane Bidder (who writes as Sophie King) to publicise her new book, The Supper Club.
I picked her up from Liverpool station, drove her to a book signing in Crosby then on to a Meet The Author event further up the coast before returning to Liverpool and the Waterstone's branch.
It was a great day. The sun was shining, the shops looked inviting and my children were busy elsewhere. I decided to amble down the main shopping area to buy my son some new school trousers.
I was sidelined by a beautiful grey tunic in Marks and Spencer's.
It would look great on its own with a belt, over jeans, with a shirt underneath.
i was overhwhelmed by the possibilities.
Who would know?
I could just load it up to this blog and pretend I'd had it for ages. Right?
I put it in a basket.
i queued up.
Then I remembered you fellow bloggers. You who have kept the faith, who have supported my efforts, so far.
I couldn't let you down!
So I put it back. Honestly.
I consoled myself with with a new Bobbi Brown eyeliner instead.
Here are some snaps of my day.
And you can see by the crowd scene (some of the people who came to the event) how small I really am!
