Isn’t Jerry fabulous? Isn’t his hair AWESOME? I want to take Jerry home with me and bring him out when I need cheering up.
This was third time lucky. The first person I approached, wearing a fabulous bow tie and beard, sadly was about to tuck into his breakfast. The second person complimented me on my skirt but said she hated having her photo taken.
Then I saw Jerry.
He was quick to comply as long as I promised to be quick with the photo.
‘Get the skirt in, get the skirt in!’ one of his mates advised as a group of them peered into the view finder.
‘Shall we hug?’ Jerry suggested.
‘YES, LET’S HUG!’ I screeched.
I’m wearing my second make of the Beignet skirt. This version is brilliant. It just goes with everything and works. I had to plan ahead for today’s outfit as I ran into work this morning, which means bringing a change of clothes into the office the day before. I find it very difficult anticipating what I’ll be in the mood for wearing or what the weather will be like. I particularly dislike pre-choosing jewellery as I love that final, spontaneous moment of the morning before the day begins.
Some things shouldn’t be pre-planned. Though I wouldn’t be above planning to bump into Jerry again.
