This morning I’ve been doing some gardening and singing along to the music that I’ve been putting together on viro.fm. It was recommended to me, and I wasn’t really sure if it was something I’d use, but actually I think it will be. You can search for songs, then add them to playlists and they get pulled together from Youtube. It seems to work pretty well! Up until recently I’d been using Spotify to play music, but then it limited me to playing songs only so many times (I’m one of those people who will listen to the same songs over and over!), so I’d moved on to Youtube, but this seems to be even easier since you don’t have to search through loads of Youtube videos to find the right version and the song you want as it just searches for you. So the neighbours have been treated to my singing along to Skinny Love, Disney and All Angels this morning, whether they wanted to hear or not!
I’m starting to get a bit of a Jones + Jones dress collection now that I’ve got this dress (this is the Audrey in black), the black sequined Vivienne and the white Dirty Dancing dress. Ideally I would love to add a few more to my collection, but I suppose I should probably take it slow, especially considering the lack of occasions I have to wear these dresses with their pouffy skirts! I wore this a week or so ago when I went out for a meal with my friends – I had to warn them beforehand that I was planning to turn up in a pouffy dress – not that they minded, apparently I wouldn’t be Sian if I didn’t turn up overdressed in a pouffy dress! I tried to dress it down as much as possible though with my cropped denim jacket that has had way too much wear and an aging pair of Primark flats. I actually wore these shoes for gardening a couple of days before and covered them in mud…yeh, not practical I know! But once the mud was dry it was easy enough to brush off.
So, hopefully I’ll be doing that this weekend – meeting my cousin. Aside from that, we’re babysitting Ben’s 2 year old cousin tonight. I’ll be taking my camera along to try and get some good pictures of him. He’s half Thai and has the most gorgeous big black eyes.
