progress (and green check pants)
Hello, dear readers. I didn't mean to be away for so long – over a week! – but the past few weeks have been something of a trial, to put it mildly. But the worst bit is over, so hooray to that. I am now feeling thousands, a million times better and looking forward to all sorts of things again. It is so nice to have dead weights lifted from your shoulders.
But enough about that. This is from yesterday, when I did some chores, and then some fun stuff, too, including shopping. One of the things I got was this new hair flower. I can get a bit tired of things in the usual reds, pinks and whites. I like some more unusual or unexpected colours, too. My cat seems to love it more than I do, and, having chased it around the living room last night, sat and looked at it for a good ten minutes this morning.

Something that has been quietly doing my head in lately is the fact that so much of my stuff is packed away at the moment. Remember how we were doing our floorboards? Well, thanks to the plumbing complications that actually kicked the whole thing off, we now need to get part of a wall replaced and blah blah blah expensive and time consuming big work. This means that a quickish job has turned out to take much longer, and all my scarves, belts, jumpers and so on aren't to hand. So my thin black belt it was, and will be for a bit longer! I am getting some paint today, so there is some progress happening at home. I can't wait to get the painting done and everything nice.
So. The black belt was decided for me, and the black and white polka dot scarf matches nicely and gives some much-needed sun protection too. Melbourne is in that sunny-but-cold-but-maybe-warm-later-who-knows stage, weather wise. It does not make outfit choosing all that easy! I love these pants, and want to wear them more often, especially when I ride my bike (Melbourne is windy, and bike riding + windy + skirts or dresses = not good!) and think they are perfect for spring, too. I wore them with a silk top, that cardigan and my go-to heeled brogues. Good, and casual.
