Lynne McCrossan: Dogged by my own inability to keep track of the time

Lately it feels like life is whooshing by in dog years.

A sign of growing older, according to my mother. A fact I’ve made peace with, although I’m not quiet there yet with the fine lines etching their way across my 20-something face.

The thing I can’t get my head around is time. I’ve always had an issue with clocks, it took me forever to master telling the time as a kid and I’ve spent the majority of my adulthood running fashionably late for things.

I usually start sentences when referencing the past by saying “remember a couple of months ago” only to be informed said scenario occurred several years prior.

So when I caught a snippet of The Apprentice last week a memory resurfaced when I heard a Scottish voice amongst the contestants.

Rewinding the telly there stood Laura Hogg. A girl I met while presenting a project called The Hirer with Fake Bake. She was one of seven finalists battling for a management job with the fake tan company.

She was beaten to the role by an amazing gal called Victoria, but was offered a position under her.

I got all excited and turned to the Belfast boy to tell him of my Hogg connection: “Remember when I did that Hirer thing a few months back? Laura was one of the girls.” “Love that was in 2008.”

Dog years, I’m telling you.

FASHION INSIDER

Today’s insider tip is one for the guys. Previews for autumn/winter have been taking place and this season is all about the three-piece suit. Jaeger in particular has gone big with dressing the boys all dapper introducing a beautiful tweed-inspired suit. Very Don Draper in Mad Men.
