Possibly this is the most rubbish reason to be awake at 4am but...

I really want one of these, and they are £80. Which, is, after all an awful lot of money for a sleeveless jacket. I'm also having twin worries that I'll look too twinset and pearls, and/or too fat in a kind of bulked up Michelin way.

I've got a friend who's worn bodywarmers for years, but is incredibly specific about the ones she wears. And I know they are handy, specially when you drive and are in and out of cars and for Christmas shopping in town centres when you don't want the hindrance of a bulky coat etc.

I also woke up with a jolt thinking about a couple of friends I haven't seen for ages - weird because I would like a long chat with them, and we used to speak all the time. I actually blame it on living down here by the sea - it is easy to forget there is another world out there. Sometimes the long train journey to London, or the alternative torturous journey down the A21 country road just seems so long. But in my sleep deprived way I have vowed to get better at being in touch, and have written a long to do list.

Night everyone.

The train journey to London may be long, but if you book in advance and buy on line from Southern's website you can get there and back for £6.00. You can put the saving towards a bodywarmer...

I want a cheaper body warmer too! Love the idea of £6 return train tickets. Texting my friend now.
(n.b. thought Southern was dodgy route via Eastbourne but someone told me it only takes ten mins longer than'fast' route so am now v.confused but as it is so so cheap...)
