I think it’s fair to say (and fairly obvious) that I haven’t been inspired much lately. It’s been a rough couple of weeks as I lost a little being who I loved very much (Don’t worry people, it’s a cat……..not a human). It’s funny how attached we become to our pets. They become an extension of our family and life can be unimaginable without them, so when they are suddenly taken from you there is this feeling of confusion and emptiness and actually, guilt - that perhaps you have failed them somehow. They are after all your responsibility. But no amount of beating yourself up will change the fact that they are gone and anyway, I know I’m a good mum. I absolutely love animals and I always say that life is richer with them in it. Even if that time is a short one. Alas, life must go on, so with my new responsibility free freedom I’m focusing a little more on what I want. I’m off to Paris this weekend to go to Maison Objet. My friend Kristina Johansson is joining me and I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of design, flea markets and good old French culture (Oui oui! Macaroons s’il vous plaÎt!). My only concern is that I’ll see too many things I want that I can’t bring back with me! But who am I kidding…… where there’s a will there’s a way……..
