~ I tried to wear my glasses and think of them as a fashion statement rather than an unwieldy hunk of metal mounted on my face. It didn’t work. Contact lenses ftw. I also wore a stripy jumper, black trousers and sunglasses and pretended to be French. This didn’t work either. Underneath all this I wore the prettiest bra in the world. I really wanted to take a picture of it but don’t think it would be appropriate to share on here. Boo. What do you think to my glasses: fashionable or just practical?
~ The Fifth Child by Doris Lessing was really good, and now I’m reading possibly the bleakest book ever.
~ I embarked on a culinary adventure to make banana bread for the first time. After a fiasco with the bread machine when it just wouldn’t stop mixing no matter what I did, I stuck it in the oven and it looks pretty beautiful to me.
~ I’m going to start exercising regularly in an attempt to not feel so lethargic all the time. I never thought I’d miss the uni gym so much.
~ I’m considering a self-imposed magazine ban. They’re expensive and full of pictures of expensive clothes and conflicting messages about weight, healthy, sexuality, careers, happiness etc. I’ll go back to them eventually but for now, they are just not what I need.
~ I went for an evening walk.
