Since the boys went back to school at the beginning of February I feel I haven't had a moment to spare. I don't think I have sat still for more than 30 minutes.
So it was an absolute delight today to get on the plane, headed for Paris. I'm now in transit in Singapore. It was heaven to sit in one place - where I promptly watched three films in a row. Hereafter: enjoyable; Love and Other Drugs: not so; The King's Speech: Outstanding. For the next leg of the trip I'll catch Black Swan.
I'm looking forward to real cold, so I can wear my new coat. When I spotted this coat in a Sydney store in November I wanted to squeal with delight, I loved it so. Always a sucker for a beautiful natural fibre, this coat had me swooning. And look at those diagonal seam details - heaven.
Having such a bright coat makes the rest of my packing very simple. I'm sticking to black and grey and I've packed light. Ballet flats and boots, a pair of boots for the snow and I'm all set.
I've even put a block from my current applique project in my luggage. A little apres-ski hand sewing will be just the ticket.
