Not really. Although I do really love Cluedo. And Scrabble. And Monopoly. And The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game*.
No, no, this is a post about a coat.
I've been umming and aahing about a new coat for a while. Because baby, it's cold outside. The three main contenders? This little beauty from ASOS, a Paddington Bear-esque number from Topshop, or a Granny-Chic staple from Urban Outfitters.
Then, at the Weekend, I was browsing through Beyond Retro with my Ma (we were looking for offensively kitsch Christmas jumpers - we have the same terrible sense of humour, and have decided to do one of those All-American-90s-Christmas-Family-Photos this year - I will be sure to show you the results). And the perfect coat caught my eye.
If Little Red Riding Hood was Cruella DeVille's daughter, then this would have been her coat.

It was love at first sight. It is bordering on Offensively Loud. But I'm okay with that. As my Ma put it;
"Well, at least there's no danger of losing you, I suppose."
Every girl needs a coat that makes them this happy. I am now EMBRACING going outside into the chill and gloom of London ("No, don't be silly, I'll nip down to the shop for some milk!"), and I wear it around the house quite a lot as well. Because I'm weird.
What do you think? Nice? Or have I finally lost the plot, taste-wise?
Hope you're all keeping warm, Cool Cats.
*If this isn't in your board game cupboard (WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE A BOARD GAME CUPBOARD?!) then put it on your Christmas list, kids. It's the best. I promise.
