HELLO PEOPLE.

 Capital Letters Confront some People Emotionally, but clearly no one's bothered to tell the Global Branding Manager at CHANEL
Meanwhile today I was Luffing Blue:
 And La Pazitively Hot:
 And Rag and Bone jeans

 Mum's here so we went to the Gallery to see the Spanish painting exhibition. I think it was called Treasures from the Prado? Anyway we all luffed it Sick.
 My Mum is the BEST GRANDMOTHER ever! The Baby screams with what can only be described as Joy and Excitement when he sees her. I love watching them together and took about 174 photos of them. But she has absolutely got to stop bringing him presents. 
No More! I mean it this time.

 Hooray for Old School 7 year old Espardrill Wedges.
 And Hooray for Lunch
 And Triple Hooray for my Divine and Always Happy Christmas Tree.
Honestly it never gives me a single moment of Trouble.
Not a Moment.
It never whinges.
It never criticises me. 
It never creates Drama.
It just sits there looking Gorgeous.
What's not to Luff?




Sheri in New Jersey (Blog Stalwart and Faithful FF commentor) is bracing herself for the Dreadful Frankenstorm. I hope you are ok. It sounds awful beyond words with apparently between 4 and 7 feet of snow being dumped. Can you imagine??? Thinking of you Sheri. Stay safe and keep us up to date if you can. 
I hope the rest of you are Ok Too.
Australian Story is very sad tonight. It's about people in the newspaper industry who live with Hardcore Job Insecurity. Nothing like Hardcore Job Insecurity to weak havoc with one's Peace of Mind.

    2. Its obviously a little 'high brow' for the Gold Coast as its not showing here...will have to wait till i can 'hire it' or download it or something but Rodrigues was definitely part of my younger partying days back in SAfrica so am really keen to watch! Now you have the song 'and I wonder' playing on repeat in my brain- I did love him!

  4. Yes, your mum - just wow!
    Everyone I know is losing their job, newspapers are down to a skeleton staff now, it's a dying industry.

  5. Australian Story just about broke my heart tonight. All those poor people. After all those years. All that hard work. Sheesh. I loved watching that man get "rattled out".

    1. I felt teary.

      As some one who is living with similar job insecurity, I have enormous sympathy and empathy for these people.

      And I hop to go God they have a lovely fat defined benefit super account.

  6. Oh lucky you having your Mum in town. She and your babe are so sweet together. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the mutual delight of children with my Mum and Dad. The blue suits you and pizza looks delicious. Jx

  7. Your Mum is a little bit groovy with those rolled up jeans, isn't she?
    Job insecurity sucks.
    My mum just became voluntarily redundant (awful word)from the Qld govt. Not too bad for her coz she's no spring chicken but awful for the younger folk.

  8. Dear FF,
    My heart is bracing for news of the storms to our American friends. Sheri if your reading please know that we are thinking if you.
    I felt the same about the caftan, I'm only a recent convert to blue, I may have to jump and purchase.
    Love the pics of grandmother and baby FF, looks like a happy day.
    I'm a Christmas lover as you know and you summed it up perfectly, it's lovely just to be.
    There is an awful cloud when your job is under surveillance, my best wishes for the sun to come out.
    Performed a makeover to two pieces of furniture today, I know my skills are superior.
    Actioned your chicken dish tonight, it's become a weekly dish - and again there was applause.
    Have a great night,
    Belinda x.

  9. I need to get along to the art gallery and see that exhibition before I miss out! Job insecurity can be devastating. Sometimes I can't watch the news for all the crime and disasters. I hope the Frankenstorm goes the way of Irene and fizzles out before more devastation happens.

  10. Australian Story was excellent - such years of dedication to his craft. Isn't it just Grim Times in the public service at the moment. I am very jumpy re: job security. Although in a way I wish I had of been made redundant, our work loads are so huge that we are all feeling it. I am propped up at home with a nasty cold this week.

    I am loving your blue and white outfit. You look like a ginger jar, in a good way!

  11. Job insecurity and involuntary unemployment are the pits. Your Mum looks incredibly youthful skipping around with Baby FF. Your tree must have a core of steel to cope with the wealth of ornaments it's festooned with - I love it.

  12. I've been up since 4am worrying about all our family and friends on the east coast. Thanks for the wonderful read - you always manage to cheer me up.

  13. The pictures of your mom and Baby FF are 11/10. I posted a brisket recipe today; was thinking of you! Love the colors in your Old School Espadrilles too.

  14. So many good people without work, all over the world. What are we heading for? It's difficult to imagine.

    We're near Philadelphia and just now seeing wind and rain. Coastal flooding in lovely old beach towns has already started. So frightening!

  15. Your mom looks like she is enjoying her role!
    BTW every time I paint my nails I think of you...
    I hope that storm is not as devastating as they are predicting. We had a large earthquake here this weekend and they were evacuating for the tsunami's and fortunately the waves were not as large as first thought.

  16. I love your espadrilles ! How do you keep your clothes and shoes looking so new even when you've had them for a long time ? Very elegant baby too !

  17. You mother looks adorable in those rolled up jeans and ponytail. That exhibit sounds amazing. (I have been reading about it on Red Cardinal's blog.) How fun to have such a lovely Grandmother/Grandson relationship in your life.

  18. love you in the blue and white tunic and pink pants. you look like an advertisement for anna spiro!

  19. I was tearing up when the fellow that Australian Story focussed on was talking about the Chamberlains, that must have been so horrible for them.

  20. I love love love your holiday tree. No wonder you have such a good relationship. I want to make it mine!
    My brother and his family are on East Coast US, thinking of everyone there, worrying times.

  21. Drove from North Coast of NSW to see the Masterpieces from the Prado last week. A coup for the Queensland Art Gallery to have such an amazing art exhibition. I think the exhibition is finishing soon, everyone should go see it.
    Loved it.

  22. My Mother doesn't have any grandchildren yet and is already buying presents. I am going to have the same issue as you!

    Job insecurity is the pits. It has been over a year of that situation for me and now my partner is also in a similar insecure position. Makes it almost impossible to plan any kind of life. Honestly, it is the pits.

  23. There is one thing worse than job insecurity ..losing the job..

    I second your thoughts about your tree!

  24. Dear Ms FF, Just read the transcript for Australian Story. The reality of the digital age is brutal. I fear what this will all mean for the quality of reporting - when the few journalists who remain are stretched to get the basics online. What will become of investigative journalism? Are we only to be left with recycled press releases and poorly considered opinion pieces? I am worried about the East Coast of the States too. May it all be over soon. Lindaxxx

  25. I love your blue and pink outfit...and I especially love those espadrilles!

    I am waiting for my sister to wake up so I can get an NYC update.
    She called me last night before she went to bed...she had no power but she was dry.
    Fingers crossed she is still high and dry this morning!

  26. You pink jeans look fantastic in you! I have to say, your whole family as such is stunningly beautiful. I am happily munching "your" oatmeal-chocolate-cookies which you posted about a week ago. munch munch munch. :-)

  27. Pink and blue looks wonderful on you. Your mother is beautiful xx

  29. You know why you are so great?

    Because you:

    Never whinge
    Never criticise me
    Never create drama
    And just sit there looking gorgeous
    what's not to Luff?

    Luff your positive positivity!

  30. Brisbane gets the most amazing exhibitions. And it's full of the most stylish people too. I think the two are connected?
    So glad I was away when Oz Story was on. Don't want to hear about more journos out of work. Already disillusioned by the number of typos in The Australian newspaper.
    I don't mind an upper case or two. It's far better than doing ee cummings-style decapitalisation.
    Love your Target top too! Have you seen YSL's beautiful new nail polish 'Bleu Marjorelle'? (Named after his garden.) I'm sure you have it already. But it would have looked the bomb with that lovely top. xx
