Due to recent tragic and incomprehensible events in Japan, which I have yet to absorb fully, I was not feeling remotely Red Nose Day-esque today. My mind was on other things - like noticing Japanese made cars in the traffic and thinking "people were in those cars, on another continent, loosing their lives to nature".
If you have not already, I urge you to donate to the Red Cross in aid of Japan.
But, in the UK ,it's that time of year again. Red Nose Day - aka - Comic Relief. I feel the gear up to tonight's appeal has been a lot less this year. Or maybe it was just not on my radar. But, from watching it, this has not stopped them from raising literally a tonne of cash for projects that change people's lives, here and in Africa. Hurrah for humour making things as better as they can. It never fails to floor me at how generous we can really be.
And with today, comes the obligatory RND t-shirt. Which, although designed by the ever-so-delightfully Ms Westwood, stumped me outfit wise. I don't do tee's, skinny white or otherwise. Except when I am dying my hair.
I tried this with a skirt. Fail. I tried it with black trousers. Fail. So, jeans it was to be. Slightly less of a fail. Thankfully I have red accessories galore. But I was still not keen - so this shall become loafing-about-on-the-sofa apparel for me.
I realise I appear to have pointed people in the direction of 2 charities in this post. I have given to both, but you are not obliged to. Unless you reaaaaaaaaaaally want to. Go on, you know you want to!
Have a lovely weekend folks!
ps) yes.. I do have a different template - isn't it sparkly new!
