Happy days

It’s cold, damp and grey here today but two things have happened in the last hour that have immeasurably improved my mood. First the postman brought me these Sam Edelman Adenas

Oh I love them, thanks so much to Gina for last weeks post which inspired their purchase!

My day started with a quick trip to the shops post school run. I had noticed the Christmas wrapping paper creep in about a month ago, and last week I was handed a catalogue for M&S Christmas food. I know retailers are desperate at the moment but it’s only October. Grrr. Anyhow this morning there were fully decorated Christmas trees in the entrance to Marks and Spencer and that really made me so cross. So I was feeling very ‘Bah, Humbug’ when I came home and opened my emails only to receive a Christmas video from Selfridges. On the 19th of October!!

However, I watched it, and it was fab and it was made by Bruce Weber and reminded me of the video of ‘Being Boring’ that he made for the Pet Shop Boys which I absolutely adored. I just looked it up and I was 21 when it was released, a student in Trinity College, Dublin and having the time of my life. I remember recording this from the tv and watching it over and over, it was so impossibly glamorous and romantic. Happy days. Thanks for the memories Selfridges!

Watch the video here, I hope it makes you smile
