C is for Cahoots and Car Boots – the A to Z of a vintage girl in a modern world

This weekend, several rather exciting things have happened. On Friday, I saw some lovely chums who I haven't seen since I left my job, and had the most amazing ribs (if you're near to Hitchin, I'd definitely recommend them, and the restaurant they come from, Hermitage Road).
