As I’m sure you can imagine, London’s a great city for celebrity spotting. It’s a fairly entertaining game, pretending not to be impressed when you brush up against someone famous. (My own personal highlight was breathing the same air as David and Victoria Beckham at Claridges, but that’s another story for another time.)
Last night, I abandoned all pretence of casual indifference when a friend announced she’d seen someone off the telly in a London bar recently. IT WAS ONLY Christina Hendricks aka Joan!
If you’re as interested as I was, here’s the low down:
- She was wearing a powder blue cape sleeved dress. (Cape sleeved!)
- She had circular vintage-style luggage.
- She’s beautiful.
- Her figure is quite as commanding in real life as you might imagine.
That is the end of this Public Service Sewcast.
In other news, if you want half an hour of the most utterly mesmerising time spent with a woman brimming with warmth and wisdom, I strongly recommend listening to this Desert Islands Disc podcast with voice coach, Patsy Rodenburg. Teachers, performers, parents, creatives – all of you! – will find much to empathise with. I defy you not to shed a tear at her story of falling in love later in life. Do share any thoughts with me afterwards. I’d love to hear your impressions.
Um. Sorry. Absolutely nothing here to do with sewing or knitting! Just, you know, life.
