First day back at work today. It was good. Good to see everyone (though some lucky people are still holidaying).
I knew it’d be painless because my favourite Crowded House song came on the radio somewhere between 6.00 am and 7.00 am.
And even though I had a hearty breakfast of a fruit smoothie (one banana, a punnet of frozen berries, half a cup of oats, a tablespoon of yoghurt and a cup of skim milk), I was hungry by 9.30 am. I think it was because of the energy expended trying to recall my computer password. So I ate two whole wheat biscuits with nut butter (almond, Brazil and cashew). I think I get hungrier at work, because during the past few days at home, my food consumption equaled my output – not much at all.
This is how I dressed today. I am still loving this cooler summer. It means I can wear opaque stockings and dress like I do in winter. People said I wear yellow well. I thanked them. I don’t wear yellow often.
Getting dressed for work makes me really excited. I think about it more than I should. I think about it as much as I think about food. And that’s a lot.
You see I am carrying a Temt bag. Temt was speaking my language. 30 percent off everything. My favourite sentence after ‘I love you’.
I have a new photo taking buddy. She understands my need to photograph my outfits for my blog at lunchtime. Yay! I find it hard to ask colleagues to take photos of me for the blog. As I said to a passer by, interrupted by my posing, ‘serious vanity in progress here’, and waved her through. S, my new photographer, is a very fashionable dresser. She wears dusky and muted tones, lots of layers, and fabulous jewellery. We had a laugh at my poses. Especially this one. When I look like I am busting for the toilet. I didn’t need to wee. For the record.
I survived the work day without an afternoon nap! (But I sure felt like one, post 3.30 pm cheesecake.) And to reward myself I put this chicken in the oven. It’s got lemon rind, mixed herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil. And there’s a chunk of butter under the skin. Underneath the chicken there is potato and sweet potato. It smells delicious.
I hope you all had a good day!
