delve a little deeper....
This week I am going to post blogs in list form. It's an exercise in creative writing to make me post and think. I don't use my brain as much as I should these days so anything to get me actually thinking is a good thing and hey, you read read this blog to learn more about me I assume.
If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see me list then do drop me a line.
Things that have (mildly) traumatised me today
1. Summer shoes.
They are either totally flat or have stupid heels. I hate flat shoes because a) I am too short and feel dumpy and everyone will know my trousers are all too long and b) I can't walk far in them any more because after years of wearing heels my feet and ankles and calves hurt in flats. I assume it's something to do with the muscles. All I want is a pair of summer shoes that don't cripple me and I can skip about in looking both good and not in pain.
2. Dead pigeon
Nearly stepped on one on my morning walk. Eeeek!
3. No dead pigeon
Above dead pigeon had gone on my way back. No sign of it except a few feathers. Had ghoulish thoughts of someone picking it up to take home with them or a passing dog eating it.
4. The smell of local sewerage plant on walk.
5. How ugly Twickenham stadium is.
I even took a photo. Here it is.
6. The hot weather is not going to last.
I want a few more warm days til the rain returns please. I am also attempting to get a bit brown and this takes time with my pale skin, paranoia about burning and having to use factor 40.
7. How much laundry I have to do.
8. Fretting about Guildford and will anyone book me.
9. The sound of big scary crows (or ravens or rooks, who knows) outside my flat.
Am a bit bird phobic and am scared one will fly in window and peck my eyes out.
10. Adultwork being down this morning.
Much of my business still comes from there despite having beautiful website.
