Back in town this season...

After a restorative break "taking the air by the coast" (psst... major reconstructive surgery) I am pleased to announce that Ms AnnieMcC is back in London for the winter season. She assures the Overmilkwood team that the spell away did her the world of good and she looks forward to putting her best foot forward in 2008 (and beyond).
Ms McC (who for reasons best known to herself now chooses to be known as Elizabeth Darling*) has kindly agreed to allow pictures of her previous state to be circulated in an attempt to alert other, younger, more impressionable souls of the risks associated with the perilous (and lonely) path to self-destruction she once trod (stuck as she was right at the back of the wardrobe).


Remember her now?
(poor dear)

Well, let me present to you........

Ms Elizabeth Darling




and our darling she truly is once more

[Followers of fashion please note the organic vegetables being toted (in preference to other, possibly darker, substances Ms Darling had been suspected of sustaining herself upon previously - dust, predominantly) - we here at Overmilkwood are predicting this new fashion-health hybrid accessory will be huge in Spring 08. It's a trend likely to spread rapidly throughout London's most fashionable circles, possibly even globally, once the press has captured Elizabeth Darling out on the town (remember readers, you saw it here first)]

No more dark wardrobes for Ms Elizabeth. It is our guess she will be tripping the light fantastic about the living space and in various boudoirs around and about...

(Hey Mum, I think you'd approve of her transformation)

* Elizabeth was Mum's name and suggested by my two sweet girls as an appropriate name for the newly transformed gal, without any prompting from me I might add. Much springing of tears to eyes ensued...
