Stuff. In the form of a list.

Because I am lazy:

1. I still haven’t found The Dress. This is much to the distress of Terry, because it seems that I just can’t stop talking about it. I mean, I thought I’d maybe be OVER IT by now. But no. The loss of my preshus dress is as fresh and as painful as it was on that dreadful day that I realised it was gone. GOD.

2. I have, however, bought another dress. It didn’t really make me feel better, to be honest. I mean, it’s a nice dress and all, but it’s JUST NOT THE SAME.

3. See, still can’t stop talking about it.

4. On a positive note, I haven’t lost or broken anything else this week. Not that I know of, anyway. I DID think I’d lost Ted this morning when I was making the bed, but it turned out he was just hiding under a pile of Terry’s clothes. Here’s what he was wearing:


I just hope Nike are paying him well, is all I can say.

5. When I was coming out of the gym yesterday, SLEET started falling out of the sky. And, OK, it only lasted for a few minutes, and then we were back to brilliant sunshine (then torrential rain. Then brilliant sunshine. Then thunder. Then torrential rain. Then brilliant… oh, you get the picture.), but still, SLEET. Sleet.

6. Because of the whole non-stop-rain thing, my lawn hasn’t been mown for three weeks now, and has consequently grown into a small jungle. I’m actually afraid to let Rubin out there in case he never finds his way back. (Thought: could The Dress be in the Jungle Garden?) Weirdly, though, all of our neighbours still have perfectly manicured lawns. HOW DO THEY DO IT? Are they mowing their lawns during the middle of the night or something? No, really, how?

7. Number 6? That right there tells you why updates have been few and far between this week, because THAT’S how interesting my life has been, really.

8. At least Rubin has been helping me with the blogging, though:


P.S. I write a weekly diary which goes out every Friday to my subscribers. Sign up below to get on the list...

I also write books

  • Re: Number 5 – it's been torrential rain / sunny / torrential rain / sunny down in London too – but without the sleet. Sleet, in July?! Maybe British Summer and British Winter are having a fight. I suspect British Winter is winning.

    My cat does almost the same thing to me- except that he sits on top of my arms.
    Sounds like a bad week for you- hope things look up!

    SLEET??? If I were you, I would search the jungle garden for your dress….

  • Sleet? Good god that is ridiculous! I am forced (not for the first time I might add) to question what is happening with British weather? Absurd I tell you! And I got caught (unhooded) in the most horrific rainstorm today, miles from home. I was not most pleased, I can tell you!

  • If you have a photo of The Dress, you could have it made up in a different fabric. Good news/bad news: you choose your seamstress carefully, it’s not cheap, it’s not instantaneous, you get to pick out the fabric, it’s custom fitted to you, it will be easier to replicate down the road if you want it in more than one color, and if The Dress turns up again, it will have a lil’ sis!
