So, I put 'turquoise' into Google, and what did I find? Well, I'm suitably excited to learn that Turquoise International (Manufacturers of Finger Cymbals since 1972...as well you know) currently have sequinned veils at 33% off! Heck, all this stuff is fantastic..I want one of these!
The semi-precious stone Turquoise is, by coincedence, my birthstone. When I was little and these things mattered, I used to resent this as it was the only birthstone which wasn't a 'proper' sparkly jewel.
A dear colleague handed in her notice today, and I'm going to miss her so much. So down am I that I had to go and buy something turquoise and sparkly at lunchtime to lift my spirits...no, not a belly dancing outfit, just a cardy from M&S kids' department - far more suitable for a woman as scantily endowed as myself.
