A list

to look back on when I'm old (if I ever get that far - dubious now I have started smoking again)

  • adore coats - seem to collect them. Am always looking for the perfect, elegant winter coat
  • am the queen of procrastination
  • didn't lose my virginity until I was almost 20.

  • eat my steak almost raw
  • love my feather duvet
  • dream of owning chickens, and peacocks
  • am poor
  • would love to be blonde
  • have never been to America
  • think that Harrods is hell

  • have a 25 inch waist, but only because I hardly eat (carbohydrates & oval the exceptions)
  • have never kept a diary before this blog
  • am a nail biter
  • wax my toes
