With a shoot planned for Sunday, which turned out to be, as predicted, another meteorological maelstrom of isobars and precipitation, hail included, I had to break out the lights, clear away the furniture and step outside my comfort zone into the studio. Pics from the shoot of 4 gorgeous teenagers/ young adults to come soon- but meanwhile, a few shots of Sophie who has been below par for a couple of weeks, as the pale skin and shadows under the eyes will testify, but she rallied temporarily to help me get my act together. She is fast becoming my ace assistant, style advisor and guinea pig all rolled into one.
And can I say a huge thanks to everyone who has commented on the 500th blog post- or tried to! I've had a dozen or so emails and facebook messages saying that some of you had have difficulty in posting- there seems to be an intermittent problem with Typepad which I can't fathom. But anyway, if you did, or tried to post, thank you so much. i am trying to get round all of you to thank you personally but it may take a little while! I will keep the comments open until the end of the week and will then do a draw for 20 names to receive a little something from me. And of course a cheque to Children in Need, which so far has raised oer £20 million- staggering.
