A dear friend of mine told me that apparently it's my year this year. At least if we're talking about Chinese zodiac that is. I've never been very into this sort of thing but after proving her point over and over again I'm starting to suspect that there might be more truth in this than I previously thought. Another lovely friend told us both, after hearing our conversation, that you're allegedly supposed to be wearing something red during this time to protect you from various things (don't even ask because I have no idea...). As you probably can tell I bought into this (literally) and in my handbag you'll now find a few new, red, accessories. Let's hope that this works!
