we're after the same rainbow

Hello there,

It is day three of my holidays, gloomy and raining outside, and I am happier than a pig in mud. I adore the weather when it is overcast; I have never been a sunshine girl (both in personality and weather preferences).

My achievements so far have been making oatmeal and coffee for breakfast, taking my daily vitamins (at the moment I am taking magnesium, silicia supplements, Vitamin B and fish oils- I always take fish oils) watching "Breakfast At Tiffany's" which I love, applying a clay face mask (waiting for it to dry as I type) and lounging around in my silk pyjamas. Sometimes in the holidays I get nervous and agitated spending time on my own, but today I am just fine.

Also, exciting news! My boyfriend just booked us a holiday to New Zealand for January, which should be amazing (we only just got back from our Fiji holiday at the beginning of July! It has been a very indulgent year, holiday-wise). I want to swim with dolphins, perhaps go skydiving (again), visit the Auckland Zoo, go on a wine-tasting tour, and lounge around in the hotel room drinking champagne with him, because he is the most fun person I have ever met.

Now perhaps I will bake some muffins, make a raw egg smoothie for lunch, and maybe actually take a shower and clean myself. Ah, holidays.

Bye darlings.

top of the heap

Hey babies,

So I have decided that  I am tired of being so busy and stressed, and crying at the drop of a hat, and being pushed around, and not taking the time to actually enjoy the good things in my life. So I am taking action.

Sick of instant coffee, I yesterday purchased a coffee plunger and this morning enjoyed fresh vanilla coffee straight from the pot. Instead of buying greasy takeaway noodles from the city for dinner last week, I took three hours (although it probably would have taken a proficient cook maybe half that time) to prepare and cook a beef casserole in my French cast iron pot, and ate it with some nice crusty bread and red wine. I have started wearing silk nightgowns that feel nice on my skin and having long steamy baths.

Some things are worth doing slowly.
