best week ever!

My 'best week ever!' started on Monday (as most weeks do) when I got my official order through from Paperchase. From January 2008, clare nicolson products will be available from the Tottenham Court road store, London.
They will be stocking the birdsong cushion...

the olive cushion...

and the orange and brown dolly birds...

but until January, you can always buy these from the website ;)

The week got even better last night when I went to see Beirut last night at the arches, glasgow. Our ruthless efforts to get as close as humanly possible to the front worked.....sort of.

Special thanks to the guy who attempted to push past me to get to the front, couldn't get through and then stood pressed so close to me that I think I may now actually be pregnant. I must also give a mention to the buffoons who barged through the crowd during the final song and started screaming at people to 'dance'. If what they were doing was dancing, I'd prefer not to get involved. Despite this the gig was wonderful....*sigh* I think I'm in love...

hooray for the postman!

now, i usually hate royal mail but today the new ian stevenson book finally arrived after I thought it had been lost during the postal strikes :( So as a salute to my postman I shall type this in royal mail red.

'best wishes, get well soon' is a collection of the artist's work and is currently the only thing I ever want to look at
you can buy the book online at http://www.concretehermit.com or check out http://www.ilikedrawing.co.uk
