Has spring sprung?

Today was another beautiful day here in North London.
Is it safe to say that spring has sprung now?!

I started reading my First Aid book this morning, Mark says it's all pretty straight forward, common sense stuff which means I'll probably have to read the book twice before the information anchors itself in my flibbertigibbet brain. These are all very valuable skills to have and I am really happy to be doing this course. Last time I took a First Aid course was at school about three hundred years ago, so if someone collapsed in front of me today, I'd be hoping that someone else could step in and help but hopefully by Saturday night I'll be more than confident to intervene myself should it ever become necessary.
Vintage 70s lurex dress, 70s suede jacket, 70s boots, Indian block print chiffon wrap,  Egyptian carved alabaster ankh, retro sunnies & handmade earrings.
 Remember Lilo, the angel winged Canada goose that stole my heart back in February? Since the first time I spotted her, Mark and I have been making regular trips to the pond to feed her and her friends. In the middle of the pond (or boating lake as the council likes to call it) there's a little island and whenever Lilo wasn't about that's where I gathered she'd be as she obviously can't fly. I'd never actually seen her swim until the other day though. She'd been "missing" for a couple of days and I was starting to worry about her. I went up to the park as per usual, took a spin round the pond but no sign of her however as I was leaving I spotted her bobbing across the water. It's very good to know that the birds have a safe roosting place, away from the local foxes.
Wearing my vintage 70s lurex dress today made me feel all disco and had me searching YouTube for the funkiest tunes from that era.
I'll leave you with one of my faves, enjoy :)
Loads of love,
Jennie

LOOOOOORID LOOOOREX! I never get tired of saying that. The miracle invention that nearly topples the wonder of crimplene off number one in my all time fave fashion inventions!
You look scrumptious. You would probably need to use CPR on me if I saw you in the street, as I would at least hyperventilate, and most likely faint with JOY!
I'm so pleased Lilo is ok. She's got the sweetest face.

Happy to see you're getting some spring & sunshine. Sadly the cold has now hit us in my part of the world - but I guess that summer couldn't last forever (I just wish the landlord would put the heating on!!). I love your frock and I'm glad you're birdy friend is going well xoxo

Another gorgeous maxi dress! Love those stripes, and the jacket is almost identical to the one I wore over the weekend - perfect spring cover up!

p.s. do pop over to mine to say hello if you get the time.
