HOW DO YOU HALFTERNOON?
‘Wow, I went into a mild panic when I was asked this as I'm extremely bad at taking anytime off. Being a bespoke milliner involves hours of hand sewing on each hat so I constantly feel I've still so much ‘It has been my week of early shifts at work, which means early finishes! Enough time left in the day to spend a 'halfternoon' productively filing bills, pulling out weeds in the garden and ironing a growing pile of clothes and sheets. This was my plan on Tuesday until I got through the front door drenched by a van that sped through a puddle. I no longer felt like being productive, and decided to put off my task list until the day after....!!! Hot bath, joggers and a baggy shirt, a new book I'd brought by recommendation and not yet started, a big mug of tea, and Marmite on toast!!! It was my cosy 'halfternoon!'
YOUR DREAM HALFTERNOON?
‘My dream halfternoon would be to be met from work by a black limousine and being whisked off to London by a gorgeous man who'd arranged a surprise show and drinks!!! (possibly a change of clothes and a hotel as well, but I don't want too sound greedy!)’
