    Good morning! I went to read in bed yesterday after work, dinner and a movie, aaand woke up today before 6AM. I turned off the light, cuddled a cat a bit and decided to get up.
    After a long shower, a cup of coffee and a dab of Diorissimo I vacuumed the floor feeling really luxurious. Since I did some more cleaning before work (and that actually felt good, and I already feel like I accomplished something today. Cleaning is one of those things I usually put off until I decide there's way too much dust and cat fur everywhere. Sadly, I love living in a clean home and not actually maintaining it. Maybe I should try going to sleep before midnight more often), Diorissimo wore off and I changed into Timbuktu.

    Now I know it's a blasphemy, but I am truly considering making Diorissimo into my Cinderella scent, haha. I only have a tiny amount, so when it's over I'll have to think up of another way to motivate me.

    Have a beautiful day!

    I love the idea of Diorissimo as your Cinderella scent, Clockwork!
    I can imagine you hoovering and dusting everywhere manically like
    Freddie Mercury in that "I want to break free" song.

    It;s colder here this morning after two warm days so I'm reaching for

    Your post made me smile, kewart!
    Yes, Queen is wonderful for household chores. Makes me sing and dance instead of actually working though, but definitely makes everything better!

    Morning all!

    l have a couple of days off, & l'm doing more studying today in Soliflore Mimosa.

    l've put in my application for a further extension today along with a supporting letter from our Matron, so l'm hoping fervently that it will be granted. l must admit l'm feeling pretty anxious over the whole thing now, but if l'm given more time l think l can do a good job & still keep my sanity!

    Hello and best to everyone. Teardrop I’m with Jon (as usual) xo

    Nina Ricci Premier Jour today. Very pretty floral vanilla perfume. Allure is a more elegant take on the theme, but this one is perfect on days when I want an easy reach.

    It'd be nice for you to keep your sanity, teardrop.
    Starting to worry about (((Cook.bot))).
    I have a (maybe final) appointment at urologist's office this morning and will visit the optical office in the same building to look at frames. I've had my current frames 10 years! I have enough hair now to judge how new glasses will fit my face.
    Feel like the peppery sweetness of modestly applied JM Pomegranate Noir on a day we may get flurries.

    Morning all,

    ClockworkAlice, I forgot all about that wonderful Queen video. I’m old enough to remember its big premier on MTV, when they used to make a big deal out of those things, and also to remember when all they showed were videos. The whole band in drag reminds me of a Monty Python sketch, with Roger Taylor, sort of like Eric Idle, looking looking convincing and even attractive.

    Teardrop, I hope you get your extension, and more time for yourself.

    I’m reading a biography of Katherine the Great, and in Jour d’Hermes today. I bought a gigantic refillable bottle at a significant discount years ago, and it is finally looking like I’ll actually finish it. I’d really like to do that, and replace it with the Absolu, which I like even more than I do the original Jour. They both have a yummy pink grapefruit note that makes it always feel appropriate when I am up early, with pungent greens and a bouquet of spring florals that are basically impossible to pick out, aside from a sweet pea accord that’s hard to miss.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
