Election Fever Part Two - Red. Not Dead.


Red is always a favourite colour for me.
I haven't worn my flat red shoes for a while but my poorly hip means I'm back in flats for a while.
I wonder if Gordon will still be in flats above Number 10 on Friday.
We will have to wait and see.
I remember when Labour won the 1997 General Election.
I was a reporter covering the West Lancs area for The Liverpool Echo.
My newsdesk sent me there because they thought it would be a quick count and I was eight months pregnant with my third baby at the time.
Unfortunately there was a recount.
I finally arrived home at 6am and had to be back at work for 11am.
A few weeks later my own Labour began and my daughter Briony was born at home on June 12th.
Incidentally, it rained most of the day but as soon as she was born the rain stopped and the sun streamed through the windows.

Today I wore:

Shoes - Clarks
Chinos and Shirt - New Look
Vest - Gap
Necklace - Top Shop
