Taking A Break

Don’t worry – only for a week! And the posts are pre-scheduled so will still be coming thick and fast! (I’m conscientious like that, you know.) I thought that the double-bank-holiday would be a good time to escape and so escaping I am into a remote wilderness to stay in a cottage with no TV or WiFi. Bliss! Many people don’t know this, but I spend absolutely every minute working on A Model Recommends – to the point that my husband feels like a widower. So we’re off on an adventure and leaving Mother to hold the fort.

I have no doubt that Mother would love to get her hands on my passwords and wreak havoc answering your comments and questions, but I don’t feel quite brave enough to let her loose – she has a very wicked sense of humour! So comment away, but please don’t expect them to be answered (or even visible on the site) until I get back! Lots and lots and lots of exciting things to watch and read in May, so I am looking forward to coming back to you refreshed and full of beans.

For those of you not subscribed by email or GFC – it’s a great way to ensure that you always receive up-to-date posts. I’m considering a little format change-around that might (possibly) make things a bit different in terms of how you see the latest posts…but I’ll discuss that with you all next month.

Have an amazing Kate + Wills Wedding Day and superb bank holidays!
