I cut the sun from doodlecharms in orange spotty paper. then on blackout in pale yellow. I wrapped orange organdy ribbon around the whole thing and finished off with a bow and some prima flowers.
I am flying to Spain in the morning -
have you ever travelled light on holiday? We are flying with a charter company, so don't have much baggage allowance, I could use it all up just on shoes. So I am being very organised, which means piling clothes on the spare bed in neat little stacks, which keep growing...and growing.... as they grow I mutter to myself 'I can do without this' and take one strappy little top which weighs about 1oz off the pile and replace with a pair of bronze leather sandals that weigh 2lbs.
I am always fascinated by those articles in magazines where they kit you up for a three week stay in a 5* hotel with just a swimsuit and a sarong, which you deftly twist into an evening dress, a skirt, a top (and probably a dressing gown), you then slip a witty giant flower into your hair and are supposed to look fabulous for the whole three weeks. Funny, it doesn't work like that for me, the sarong would come untwisted in the middle of the dance floor revealing vast areas of sunburn, and the flower would fall wittily out of my hair after five minutes.
