I’ll be your Emmylou

As I mentioned in my last post, my beloved Panasonic camera, it transpires, does not like water, and so is potentially preparing himself for a trip to the great camera shop in the sky.  Because I cannot bear to be without a camera I have been playing around with my old Canon 350D SLR and trying to get to grips with the settings and using the two different lenses I have.  We were planting out lots of bits in the garden on Monday so in the brief interval where the sun came out I thought I’d take a few practice snaps.  The close-up of Bodhi really makes me laugh!

I am definitely enjoying my new organised wardrobe I showed you in my last post.  As Gillian commented,  it’s really lovely having everything laid out neatly rather than having to rifle through mounds of things to find the one thing that you’re looking for to go with an outfit.  I have a few new things to show you that I’ve bought over the last couple of weeks and it’s just feels nicer having them hanging neatly on show rather than being shoved in a drawer.  I’m still loving my Oasap creepers I featured a couple of posts ago but I am struggling to know what to wear them with as I want to make them a bit more exciting than just pairing them with jeans all the time.  What would you style them with?

I’m glad that, reading your comments on my last post, I’m not the only one who gets the blues during bouts of rain and cold.  I wish I was the sort of person who could write the day off, grab a blanket and settle down with a hot chocolate and a good film when the weather turns bad but the sad reality is that there is always so much to do in the house that it’s rare I allow myself much time to just ‘lay like broccoli’.  For the first time in ages I did exactly that on Monday night and snuggled down and watched Good Will Hunting, and I’m so glad I did, what an amazing film! I think one of the reasons I sometimes get quite stressed is that I always have a neverending to-do list which means I always feel intensely guilty when I’m stuck indoors but not taking the opportunity to tackle ironing mountain/eBay my pile of unwanted clothes/clean the house etc.  I am definitely going to make more time to do this over the next few weeks and months however.  All work and no play and all that….
