It is freezing in London and I'm very disappointed we've had no snow yet, I'm like a big kid! It's too cold to be glamorous today, even for me! I've dug out my limited collection of knitwear and turned the heating up high. For once in my life I'm dressing sensibly. Don't worry it won't last long.
I had another massive lie-in after a lovely evening with my friend Phoebe. The furthest I've been is to the corner shop and to a little studio opening in my street.
Right opposite my house Sue Whimster was holding an open studio showing her ceramics as part of Hidden Art in Hackney weekend. Sue has a studio at the end of her garden where she makes all kinds of whimsical (no pun intended) stoneware ceramics which are full of character, most famously the English Bull Terriers.
Here are the garden walls leading to Sue's studio. I love the shells
Fee - I know you're gonna love these!
English Bull Terrier, stoneware ceramic 30 x 25cm
Winter hare, stoneware ceramic 45 x 30cm
Polar bear money box
Bunny money boxes
Pig money box
A collection of dogs
I rather like these meerkats - the expressions are great
And The Actor and I are very partial to a boiled egg so I always like interesting eggcups
I think these are really cute
Sue sells at lots of shops and galleries
I've seen these in Bordello in Shoreditch. The Actor will like these

When I got home I realised that I'd forgotten to bring my poor money tree in from my terrace during the cold spell. I'm not at all green fingered but I do know they don't like frost. It was the picture of health yesterday, unless I'd just mistaken it for being frozen. I had it by the radiator until I called my dad and he said that the heat would shock it so I must put it on the kitchen windowsill and keep it dry and see if it recovers. Fingers crossed the poor thing does. I hate killing anything. Does anyone have any tips on reviving my lovely plant?
Here's my TV dinner delivered by my local Japanese restaurant:
Chicken Gyoza dumplings
King prawn Yakitori
On Friday night I watched almost the whole of The Only Way Is Essex back to back, and loved it... for all the wrong reasons! Tonight's viewing - Strictly (I'm sorry Patsy's gone), X Factor (so yawn now but I'm delighted that Wagner has finally been voted out). I'm loving I'm a Celebrity and Any Human Heart. I've been recording lots of films on Sky recently, I rarely go to the cinema so I always see everything ages after everyone else. I may watch one of these later, has anyone seen them already?
I love Meryl Streep and anything to do with food so I hope I like this
I grew up very near to Keats house in Hampstead and I've been wanting to see Jane Campion's film about his three year love affair with Fanny Brawne for ages.
I hope you've had a wonderful weekend xxx
