What's this?! Some sunshine... good weather for me to ride to some op shops. And my bike has a basket – perfect for carting my goodies home. Today, some great things fit in it – and there are some I have to pick up tomorrow!


edit: I forgot to say that this is after the ride, hence all those frizzies! Not to mention the sin of the visible hair pin... ;)

Of course, I wear a bike helmet, and have to plan my hair around that – and get to enjoy it being fluffed up afterwards, too. I can live with that, though :) It is just so nice being able to get out and about! And I love riding in heels. It isn't difficult at all, not even in higher ones.



edit 2: it's hard to see but I am actually wearing very thick, ribbed cream tights :) it was still so coooollld!


This is what I could see from my front door. Tomorrow it will rain again, but actually that is a pretty good thing – I look forward to more puddles and clouds, and curling up indoors this weekend xxx
