It's raining, it's pouring

To be fair, while it's been a wet, wet winter, it has been mild as all get out (no Lara hat wearing to date), and we denizens of London village have been spared the flooding that's engulfing Somerset, Oxfordshire, and all those places "-upon-Thames".  One is starting to wonder if Darren Aronofsky has anything to do with it.

Where I've been since the last post and why I haven't been writing isn't particularly worth going into - there hasn't been one thing, it's really just been a lifestyle change that crept up on me and got in the way.  It's all good, really, but I've missed writing for fun and am making a belated non-NY resolution to try, try again.  Because I missed you.

That's all for now - sun's out and Canada's on track for a record medal count in Sochi.  All is right with the world.

School run chic?

Really? Isn't this a celeb-mum reaction to the paparazzi stalking them 24/7? Does the average mom have time for this? And does she need one more pressure in her busy morning? Guardian's Jess Cartner-Morley weighs in:
There are two problems with the notion of working-mum chic. For one, it feeds into a blinkered deification of mothers as heroines that is skewing our culture. Our obsession with motherhood threatens to obscure the fact that communities need sisters, wives, daughters and friends. These roles are important. Second, the American Vogue/Goop version is as unrealistic for most of us as the perma-smiling 50s housewife or the 80s hard-body gym bunny.

You know how I feel about GP, but her lifestyle is hardly achievable.

Antimacasser, anyone?

Or perhaps a doily?

I understand that white lace is all the thing this summer, but surely Sienna Miller could do it better than this. And with better accessories. And hair.

Now that it's raining more than ever

And on Wimbledon no less.

It's my fault - I've been telling people ever since I arrived in London that the weather was far, far better than I'd anticipated, and that people everywhere think they have the worst weather (along with the worst traffic), and it can't possibly be true for eveywhere. However ...

I'm not a big fan of a wet June, and this is unpredictable wet - serious downpours blowing through unpredictably and soaking everything possible. It's not fun.
