Crikey. This week has flown by! It’s Thursday already!
Feeling pretty introspective. I’ve been thinking a lot about romantic love the past few weeks. I read an interesting article in UK Vogue yesterday about “settling”. We’re taught never to settle. That settling for a man who isn’t Prince Charming or Mr 100% Right is wrong, and that we’re compromising ourselves and setting ourselves up for a marriage of dull lovelessness. I’m fully aware of the unrealistic romantic ideas that are instilled in little girls’ heads from the moment they can understand fairy tales, and I have to agree with Vogue – settling for 80% of the attributes one wants from a husband doesn’t sound all that bad. As long as the big ones – honesty, fidelity, respect, equality and non-abusive behaviour are met. Oh, and physical attraction, albeit that attraction changes its nature and focus over time. It’s a hard one though – do you make the decision consciously to settle, or is it something that happens after years of deciding not to settle (and to find someone else?).
Wearing slippers, baggy jeans and a sample tee from the summer range.
Looking different. Extensions were added yesterday and I’m feeling full- and heavy-headed. They’re very cool. I have to say though that the extravagance and unnecessary indulgence makes me feel a little uncomfortable.
Thinking about work and the fact that my BFF is moving to Denmark in about two weeks. That is something I’m blocking out! I’m also thinking about how much chocolate I’ve consumed in the last week…seriously, sugar is very bad!
Happy about my yoga practice this morning! No amount of trying gets jump backs happening, and only sometimes does a jump through occur, but, yay, two postures from second series have been added! AND, I managed not to rip out my new extensions when I jammed by calf behind my head (and tried to look comfortable!).
Wishing the lure of biting my nails would vanish in a big puff of acetone. And that I could raid Weylandts!
