These mirrors hang in my living room. Before that, they hung together in my flat and before that, three of them belonged to my friend Debbie – who sold them to me when she moved back to Australia. I found two others in a charity shop and now they all live happily ever after. read more…
I’ve had a recent revelation and it is this: You CAN wear a jumpsuit if you are not, like me, some skinny slip of a thing.
