Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
We’ve had a cold front since last Friday with night time temperatures fluctuating around 3 degrees. It means I get to go out in coats which I haven’t worn in over 15 years! My two favourites happen to be the warmest. The camel version in the pictures above and a similar black one which goes down to the knee. They still fit, which is comforting.
I’ve decided I’m going to have a little sort-of-christmas-party on the 12th. It doesn’t matter that the house isn’t finished. We can sit 15 to 20 people in the green and grey salons which open onto each other, and they’re in a respectable state. Just tapas and drinks, but enough tapas so it’s the equivalent to having dinner. At the moment casual is the most feasible, and it means people get to circulate and speak to whomever they want whenever they want. I think it’ll be fun and different to what people around here are used to.
