back to bed with Vogue and writing materials and visiting the world while lying back on clouds of pillows


it’s Saturday.

and we Do like to Lounge around on a Saturday morning.



and read glossy magazines. a23a2f54bfdd11e2a32722000aa800c4_7


and do a mini decoupage (with just sticky-backed-plastic).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand call people on the Princess Phone (with the 50 ft cord so we can lie back against the soft pillows) in Connecticut* and find out Their (most exciting) News.

*where we spent our Last Weekend on the East coast if you recall……. 

and now we write.

just after we listen to a little more 80s music (a free CD came in the Post with the re-issued and rather reasonable re-mastered Classic Movie-on-DVD that we’ll be watching soon’ish).

we’re having one of those days – where – you know – it’s all Unfolding as one Imagined…..

an early email from someone deeply Sophisticated in Shanghai (“hello, dumpling”), lying in bed placing a Trunk Call to Connecticut, reading Vogue, a tiny amount of decoupage (similar to Pinterest, young people reading this), accepting an Advisory Board position as who-we-are-in-RL – super secret that one – don’t tell anyone as yet, saying Yes! to writing a blurb for the Publishing site for Someone Special’s New Novel – and waiting patiently for the Manuscript to arrive – most exciting – while listening to Jazz on the Radio via the interweb and – a few hours hence – popping out to see friends-at-a-gathering-place followed by another Evening at the Movies with a Director Q&A post-film.



That’s EXACTLY how we thought it would be.

  1. Curiouser and curiouser: the world’s press and the Hon Nigel, what can it all mean? I am intrigued.

    *waving westward* from the country that came last this weekend. #eurovision

  2. You have described my ideal day. Since my husband is working out of town, I have even indulged in something very similar to this on a number of occasions. But you did not hear that from me. *ahem* No, as far as The Chef knows I type away from dawn until dusk.

  3. That’s the best part of lounging and visiting from afar; we don’t need to dress up properly. Are we allowed to lounge in loungewear? Strange word; loungewear.

    1. perhaps less loungewear (you’re right – Odd Word) – and more of a fresh set of cotton PJs from Peter Jones or a long cotton nightdress from Crabtree and Evelyn (do they still sell such things?) or a fun little slip from a tiny lingerie shop on the lower east side of manhattan with satin trim and a deep moisturiz(s)ing mask?

  4. Oh good! Look at all of these nice links to explore this Sunday morning with Ben curled up against me so that I don’t dare go get that second much needed cup of coffee. And look! I am there too. Thank you, Miss. But the peonies have well and good bit the dust…after a long Gloria Swanson style fade-out…they have already been replaced by…white roses. Knew you would appreciate that.
    Have a gorgeous Sunday.

    1. isn’t that the Best when they’re all snuggled up and it’s just comforting and sweet and they’re breathing gently? love that.

      those white roses are delicious.

  5. Dearest G
    Sp pleased your having a restfully productive day… aren’t they the best!?!
    The Dandy has been out and about looking for trousers of the shorter variety and finally settled on too rather dashing pairs, one dusky pink the other powder blue.
    I do hope the good people of America find them to their liking when I arrive there next weekend.
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

  6. How lovely to see a mention of my little daily plate of you know what.. I just may have a story or two for you soon, with a little Mona Lisa smile, maybe… It’s all about the shoes. Well, mostly. And phones, princess or otherwise. And who we see and what we do… with both.

    Happy Weekend!

do say something - do :-)
