Technically I need to write my dissertation and think about my career... However, the beauty of being bed ridden (sorry that should be past tense as I'm now up and about) is the time one has to explore the internet. I've had so little time to do this in so many years, it was nearly a joy. I actually thought I'd like an office job again, especially after I discovered 4OD. I watched all the new series of Ugly Betty that I've missed due to never having time to watch tv. Then I got to do window shopping. Usually I've only got a moment to have a quick check of on-line sites, new arrivals, follow up press information and even that is way down in second place to my MA research.
In my moments of wakefulness I got to delve deeply into the many offerings of clothes, bags and accessories. I finally decided that I had to choose three necklaces to add to my potential new wardrobe. Truly I need these necklaces.
My first pick is a Wendy Brandes creation called the Little Woolf Necklace I need this as it will be my writing inspirational aide for my MA dissertation. It will give me the gravitas of Virginia!
The second necklace I need is a gold Maple Leaf by Emilie Hagen I've always loved maple leaves from my days in school at TL Kennedy, Missassagua, Canada. I went there on some progressive experimental school exchange from my comprehensive state school in the UK. I think the experiment was a failure as I have a vague recollection of doing some presentation evening for the Canadian Embassy and most of us who went not doing very well in our GCSE exams. The two schools continued to do a 2 week cultural exchange but the education element was dropped. Hence my nostalgic love of the maple leaf.Finally, a gal always needs a bit of bling and this is the one for me Ora by Dannijo.
Sigh now all I need is a lottery win for number 3, although I think I'll tick number one and two off my list very soon!
