This outfit or some variation of it has been my mountain uniform of late. White dress, leather boots, straw hat and I'm out the door. A few weeks back I pulled this dream dress off the wall, where I'd been gazing longingly at it for far too long. As I sheepishly asked Oli to fasten the 15 tiny shell buttons running up the back, I was delighted to discover that each and every one actually did up! I guess my American diet of cheeseburgers, Pabst Blue Ribbon and cherry pie had come between us in the past.
I have a small favour to ask of you. For the past six months I've dedicated my life to Lost. I never mentioned it all that much but we were living and breathing the happenings of that creepy old island. Since watching the season finale I'm feeling like a part of me is missing, akin only to post Twin Peaks melancholia. I'd love to hear some of your favourite series that may help me overcome this heartache. Oh, and kudos to anyone that recommends a show starring Desmond Hume or Sawyer...
