When Will There Be Good News?
There is a dark cloud hovering above me at the moment.
And it isn't a rain cloud.
Of course it's the only cloud that anyone is talking about.
The Volcanic Cloud.
I have spent the weekend listening to every news bulletin.
I am due to fly to Seville on Friday for the Flameco Festival.
The trip is a birthday present from my husband.
I have been waiting years to see the festival.
But as I write there are still no flights in and out of the UK.
I feel a little sorry for myself but realise how much worse it is for all those families stranded and those who have spent years saving for special holidays and even weddings.
Instead I have been distracting myself by reading a lot.
I finished the Marian Keyes novel, The Brightest Star In The Sky (great book but the epilogue totally spoils it) and just started When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson.
The Kate Atkinson book was a gift from Antonella and what a wonderful gift it is.
I haven't read any Kate Atkinson books for a while and can't figure out why because she is such a wonderful writer.
To console myself I decided to wear the white skirt I was saving for Seville.
In times of trouble a girl has always got her clothes.
Boots - Clarks
Skirt - H & M
Top - Marks and Spencer
Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins
Necklace - Primark
