Breaking News: Greens Romp Home in Polling Day Result

"I like your shirt Jane; it looks like we should have a picnic on it."
And that is how I was greeted when I went to work in the prison.
Mobile phones and internet connections are banned in the jail where I work but sometimes the comments I get make me wonder.
Such as
"Yesterday you were green and before that blue, what's the colour thing going on?"
We often talk about clothes and I have a few writing workshops based on what we wear.
One of them is to play the Mary Chapin Carpenter Song "This Shirt" which relates a story about the journey of a woman's shirt.
Another workshop begins with the Jackie Kay poem "The Shoes of Dead Comrades" which links her father's communist values with the solidarity of his dead friend's shared views."
And now for the hot news.
The Greens have romped away with my Election Week Special grabbing 32% of the vote with the True Blues second and sharing joint third place are the Reds and Yellows.
Thank you to everyone who voted and congratulations to Candycane who has won The Seville Scarf giveaway - please email me on to claim your prize.

Today I wore:
Boots - Clarks
Skirt - Marks and Spencer
Shirt - Matalan
Vest - Tesco
Necklace - Top Shop
