I am ridiculously excited about this Sunday evening. No I’m not being wined and dined, nor are we expecting guests…the new seasons of Homeland and Dexter start! How sad am I?
Bored to tears with Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, Real Housewives etc…I have recently been exploring the pleasures of On Demand viewing. I have watched Season 1 of Girls, Season 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones (appeals to my inner dork), Season 1 of Homeland plus I am completely up to date on Dexter. The correlation of my increased t.v. viewing with the start of the football season is no coincidence. There is no greater way to watch a mini series than from beginning to end with no commercial breaks – bliss! Now my only debate is do I watch the new season live or should I DVR it so I can enjoy without commercials?…The latter I think!
I’ll be ready for a bit of sofa surfing on Sunday as we have another jam packed weekend with birthday parties and swimming lessons – plus on Sunday afternoon we are having a photo session with Muddy Faces on a farm. Karen who is the photographer is amazing and has a real knack for taking natural, uncontrived photos, and I am so excited about getting some lovely portraits of the children. I refuse to buy the school portraits that have the naff, fake backgrounds on them.
Today I’m wearing my J.Crew shorts in Casablanca blue – these are 5″ ones and were bought in the sale – they are so comfortable and a great length – not too revealing – but nowhere near the knees either. With them I’m wearing my Primark t-shirt with the bus heading to Croydon, with my Zara off white jersey jacket and Sam Edelman Louie boots. I’ve decided if I wear shorts I can wear boots, but it’s still too warm for jeans and boots together.
