The latest Boden and Wrap catalogues dropped through my letterbox last week. For wearability Wrap wins hands down. Boden clothes are pretty and fun, but definitely designed for the svelter women among us. Nearly all their skirts and dresses are knee length or shorter, which doesn’t suit me very well. And I wish that just one time, a clothing catalogue would take one or two items of clothing, and have a spread where they show that one piece on a variety of shapes and sizes, just so that you can see what it might look like on you. Never mind, I thoroughly enjoyed the catalogue, it’s always very entertaining to read through. And I’m going to steal their model meme, as I did last year, for my blog. For the next ten minutes, I’m a Boden model.
Best compliment: that I’m good at what I do.

Daffodils or crocuses: daffodils. If I could, I’d have huge bunches of them all over the house when they are in bloom.
Least favourite childhood dinner: fish with parsley sauce. Bleugh. And runner beans.
My geekiest attribute: liking to have things in round numbers. Like the blog list on Bloglines, can’t be 21 blogs, has to be 20. Or 25.
‘It’ bag or statement necklace: neither really. I’m a shoes gal.
I’m beginning to think I’m allergic to: winter.
Shower or bath: shower. Baths make me tired.

Favourite takeaway: Chinese.
Best thing about the 21st century: the World Wide Web.
Greatest athletic feat: being able to do a very respectable Swan Dive in Pilates.

Left or right side of the bed: whichever side’s furthest from the door.
When I retire I will definitely: spin and knit all day long.
