Life is still on an even keel.
I wanted to do a post on my FB status update from yesterday, but as the day progressed, I lost my taste for it. It’s in any case a topic that I will very likely have something to say about again in the probably, not too distant future. BMW drivers. I need say no more.
Thought I’d try on the dresses in my cupboard to see which one I could use for the exams. This was brought on by the sister. I was there last night for a quick visit and she got out two dresses. Wanting me and mom to decide which one she should wear. They were both lovely dresses and she looked good in both of them. I gave her my opinion, what she does with it is her business. And then she went off on a tangent. and I said goodbye. As I said before, she’s looking rather svelthe these days. I have a suspicion that she’s up to something – just don’t know what. Her business. Not mine.
So, there I was, trying on the dresses in my cupboard. I’ve expanded in the last few years. Mostly topside. Have two dresses that fit me without pinching the breath from my lungs. One is very old – probably a good 10/15 years, and the other one, though lovely, very short and bought with a gift voucher from the one person that has kind of set the travels of the last two years in motion. It looks like I will have to go dress shopping this weekend. If not dress shopping, I might have to go and look for formwear tight enough to keep all the ripples in place. But then I can’t do my backdrops too well. And I will have to go see if I have any shiny things left after Africa has decimated my 30 year old collection. I know I have no perfume left, but I could not be bothered to go and buy more. maybe eventually. it’s only two hours of my life, and they care more about the feet than the ripples in any case. If it does not freak out my instructor the way it freaks me out, there’s no real worries is there? But looking at myself, and comparing myself with the sister, not such a good comparison. And I wonder if I should not maybe do something about it. Can’t really say what, since I can’t see myself doing the diet thing, nor the exercise thing. Otherwise, I’ll just have to accept the way I look and count the blessings I do have – a good brain, handy hands, perfect pitch and balance, good sense of rhythm, an able body, a job, a somewhat steady life. We can’t all be svelthe. Somebody has to be practical 😉
For the moment I have floors to make pretty and storage to work out – much more important than perfume or weight gain or loss 😉
This was just a catch up post – think I have to now go and make something to eat – very hungry!! That’s my main deterrent to dieting. I get hungry!!
Let’s hear it for another day done. Another day older. Another day;s experiences done. May tomorrow bring only good things our way.
