Coasting through Brixton this morning (OHMYGOD! What a horrific journey I am forced to endure each day) in my gleaming Audi Q7 (to hell with the damn congestion charge) I noticed a woman wandering past The Body Shop wearing nothing but a pair of imitation Ugg Boots and a child's silver plastic tiara!!! She must have been older than my mother...

I don't quite know how to process this;

Was I horrified that this woman had clearly lost her mind?
Was I sensitised because this post menopausal female had so obviously lost her figure?
Was I simply shocked by her lack of ability to accessorize?
Or, have I simply realised the full implications of care in the community?

I really am terribly current with all things political you know.

..and you didn't vomit?

Sweet @themill,

Why of course I did!

The question one must ask oneself in these situations is: would you have felt less nauteous if the "lady" in question was wearing proper UGGs and carrying a Mulberry Mabel?

Darling Mrs-inaction-man (would you mind if I called you Derek?),

I think that you and I both know the answer to that one, although I must admit that I would still remain slightly sensitised by the experience. Uggs are afterall so last year!

OH MY GOD - you vomited in your Audi Q7????

Darling Rosie,

thank you so much for your concern. As I am a lady of many talents, I managed to vomit strategically into the au pairs handbag. I was dropping her to language school in Brixton - and well, I would never dream of throwing up into my own...

Golly - I think I know that woman!
