I will not mention the weather in this post, I will not mention the weather in this post, I will not mention the weather in this post… er, even although that means I don’t know what I actually AM going to mention in this post: whoops!
So, it’s been a pretty quiet week all round: not that that’s a bad, thing, I hasten to add. I mean, I love the weeks where I get to go adventuring, but I also enjoy the ones when I have time to catch up with some of the stuff I’ve been itching to get around to at home. This week, for instance, I FINALLY finished swapping out the wooden hangers in my dressing room for the flocked ones which aren’t as nice to look at, but which allow me to cram a lot more stuff onto those rails. Which is the main thing, right?
The only problem with this is that I now have a ton of wooden hangers crammed into a closet, with nowhere else to put them. I managed to offload around half of them onto friends, but that still leaves a LOT of hangers, so I’m thinking of sticking them on Gumtree to see if I can get rid of them that way. Or I’m thinking of getting Terry to do it, anyway: I know this makes me sound totally pathetic, but the idea of a complete stranger coming into my house and giving me money in exchange for hangers is just plain ol’ awkward to me. Also, I know I’d be too embarrassed to bring up the question of money, so they’d end up getting them for free. (Which is probably what’s going to end up happening anyway, but oh well…)
(I mean, I’d put them on eBay, but they’d be a nightmare to pack… On Thursday, I managed to lose my Fitbit bracelet while trying to wrestle them back into the closet they’d just fallen out of: I then spent the best part of the next hour searching the house high and low for it, including stopping the washing machine mid-cycle, convinced it must have gotten in there with the bedsheets I was washing, and having to haul a sopping wet duvet cover out of said machine and do a fingertip search to see if the Fitbit was inside it. So yeah, I want those things GONE, basically.)
I can’t believe I just wrote two whole paragraphs about wooden hangers. Quick, think of something else to talk about! I know: shopping!
Last week the Zara sale started, so naturally I had to take a look, and this package was the result. I only got a couple of things, one of which I’m planning to wear, and hopefully photograph soon (SPOILER: It’s this skirt. ), but they were things I’d had my eye on for a while, so it’s all good. Speaking of Zara, the trousers in the super-blurry photo at the top of the page are also a relatively new purchase from there, and I wore them on Monday, to catch up with two of Terry’s siblings and their families. One of the best things about marrying into a Greek family is that there’s never a shortage of food, and Terry’s brother and his fiancée had cooked up a storm for us, which made for a nice start to the week, and a totally random end to this post. But hey: at least I didn’t mention the weather!
