I can't believe that it will be November by the time this is posted. November feels like the end of autumn and the start of winter, which I am both happy and sad about. I prefer the appearance of autumn, with all the oranges and reds. Once winter arrives, everyday really is like Sunday. I will have to really reorganise my wardrobe when I return from Portugal. I think I'll be okay though, given that I currently have two big drawers full of jumpers. These photos are way, way back in the summer, which now seems like a hazy blur. The hairband was a gift, the sunglasses are from Primark, the bracelet is from Next, the necklace is diy'd, the dress (worn as a top) is thrifted, the skirt is Topshop, the socks are M&S and the shoes are Rocketdog.
On the last Thursday of the school term, Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now came to my school to give a talk. She was a really powerful and amusing speaker, speaking for non-stop for an hour without boring me at all, unlike the people who come in to talk about student finance. The talk was really inspiring and I think that some of the things that she talked about will really help me with my own writing. I got my copy of "What I Was" signed and got to talk to her briefly about my own writing. I plan to read "What I Was" on holiday.
I hope you are all having a good weekend.
