French sofas, shoes and Les Miserables
It is now day seven of my
miserable no cake, chocolate or biscuits diet, (I am, of course, still allowing
myself alcohol) and I have now reached the severe withdrawal stage. I should
have realised I was at crisis point when the chocolate candle became the
fragrance of choice and the dogs bonios started to look appetising!....I
wouldn't mind all this were it not for the fact that, after all this effort,
denial and self discipline, (a new thing for me, I have to say) I feel
absolutely no different....boo hoo!!
Anyway, enough of all this poor me
routine, I have had one major indulgence this last week, (which is helping take
my mind of choccy) in the form of an exquisite antique french sofa. This
spectacular thing of beauty is residing grandly in my sitting room in all its
gorgeousness, oozing sex appeal, (well it is french after all!) and making
everything around it wilt in its presence. It almost seems to be saying, 'don't
dare sit on me'!!...Just have to hope my cat takes note, as she's rather partial
to a cosy nap on a sofa,but then she's Persian so she probably doesn't
At least I can sit for a moment on it !!
Continuing on a french theme, I just have to pay homage
to another recent acquisition, shoes. Utterly beautiful and very
Parisian....Aren't I a lucky girl!! All I need now is a suitable occasion to
wear them at.
Please excuse my final comment, but I just can't resist
finishing on a very apt quote, (although I don't think she did actually say
this) from Marie Antoinette....'Let them eat cake'!....Oh yes, could you make
that a double chocolate one, please!!
Happy days and....Au
