I'll admit, I tried to switch my working days around this week so I could have the opportunity to spend a larger portion of WGD swilling absinthe, flicking through back issues of Meltdown and lounging in the sunshine under a parasol. Alas, it was not to be (read: my manager wasn't having any of it).
However. I dolled up for work - and it was the first time this year I've left the house in short sleeves, as up till now it has been freezing. Yesterday: suddenly, summer. In deference to the weather I opted for a white blouse under one of my favourite dresses, a black confection from Angelic Pretty, and my cute vampire flats from Em & Sprout.
Straight after work, my friend and fellow dark culture enthusiast Rosemarie met me outside the shop, glammed up in huge platform heels, sunglasses and an equally frilly frock. We clomped through town to the cinema, where we watched Dark Shadows (in my case, for the second time. It seemed less, um, hammy the second time around, although I still feel Depp was over-egging it for all he was worth).
Then we headed back to my house for a few celebratory shots.

This morning dawned bright and beautiful. We had pancakes for breakfast nice and early and then before Rose went to college we got outdoors to take some pretty pictures in the sunshine.
