'People can't get over people.'
Did I say wish list? Actually, I don't have one, need one… because a) I buy everything I fancy over the year anyway (and can’t ask poor J & S to spend any more money on me), b) I don't agree with the whole 'spend, spend, spend' attitude for Christmas, and c) I'm just a happy, content person (okay, wishful thinking)… I actually did buy myself a quite wonderful book recently (see!), which is not only fun to look at ('the visual road has been overtraveled and overcrowded' anyway says Mme Vreeland). I mean, the lady's got something to say (and many stories to tell). And how could one not be allured by thoughts like 'I think laying out a beautiful picture in a beautiful way is a bloody bore. I think you've got to blow it right across the page and down the side, crop it, cut it in half, combine it with something else… Do something with it.' I hear you, Diana!
What do you think, Christmas present potential?
