Well I have to admit I have had a good day – which is a relief after yesterday. At 1.30 am this morning when I was lying in bed awake stewing over things I decided that yesterday finished and midnight and I wouldn’t worry about it any more. It must have worked as I drifted back to sleep not long afterwards.
This morning, with definitely the right frame of mind, I have had a massive clean up of my bathroom cupboard. Make up, body lotions, perfume – you name it – has all gone in the bin. Most of it I have had since Adam was a boy or Noah built the Ark and I decided enough was enough and I was definitely in the mood for a clean sweep.
I treated myself to some new make up when I popped down the street for the mail etc. Some nice blush and eyeshadow to go with the mascara and foundation I purchased yesterday – so now I have a fresh new look for summer. Not that I’m “high maintenance” by any stretch of the imagination – but it is nice to have a change.
I tried to immerse myself in a good book this afternoon but it didn’t work – my wardrobe was calling me, so what else could I do but respond! An hour and a half later there was a huge pile of clothes on the floor that didn’t fit, didn’t suit or just didn’t appeal any more all ready for the op shop when next I go down the street. There was another huge pile of clothes destined for the bin which I must have been insane to wear they were so revolting.
Now I have a lovely clean, sorted wardrobe with just a few really nice outfits to wear – mainly the clothes I made last year, which surprise, surprise still fit despite the weight gain I have had over the past few months. In fact throw on a pair of high heels and I look positively glamorous – or maybe that was just the excitement of having a wardrobe I could walk into that was doing that…vbg. Even my shoes were sorted and the floor vacummed.
Milly (red heeler) I might add slept through the entire process very comfortably on my bed – despite having clothes heaped upon her as I was sorting. The most I got was an occasional snore from her direction.
