I’ve been struggling a little bit mentally the last couple of days, so here’s a list of things that are keeping me relatively sane and not-quite-happy:
1. Dungarees. I bought some a while ago, from FatFace, tried them on, loved them, but then nearly sent them back. Surely I’m too old for dungarees I thought, surely I will look a bit tragic in them….I ummed and aahhed but, in the end, I decided to keep them, but only to wear on days when I wasn’t going out anywhere. So, that’s now. I wish it wasn’t but it is.
Today I am wearing them and I feel pretty good in them, and just knowing I’ve been brave enough to put them on (oh, the teenage daughters are going to have a field day with this, which seems kind of apt, as they are ‘field’ kind of attire…), makes me smile.
2. Books and box sets. I’ve just finished The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon and I bloody loved it. I had no idea what it was about, when I embarked on it, other than it was set on a US morning news show. Wowsers! It was certainly a whole lot more than co-anchors not getting on….and Steve Carrell is FANTASTIC in it. If you have Apple TV, do check it out.
3. Telly. I’ve always been a massive telly addict but none more so than now, and I want comfort telly all the way. I want Rick Stein, cooking a fish on the side of a canal in Venice, I want the WTF nonsense of 90 Day Fiance (total trash TV, can’t watch more than two episodes in one go without brain explosion). I want any and every episode of Sex and the City.
4. Chocolate. Goes without saying. Just a little, every day.
5. Bike rides
