Earlier in the week
Some weeks I start my blog posts way before Friday. Sometimes there’s something I want to talk about or a point I feel that needs to be made. Other times it’s a case of something to do – an exercise in writing for no reason other than the fun of it.
I had had a few thoughts tucked away for this post, however, having failed to write them down, they have floated off into the ether. So it goes sometimes. With luck, they come back. In a way, I like to keep an idea in my head and turn it over, like the sea would a pebble, until the rough edge have been worn smooth. Then again, most of what you’re reading comes live and direct from my head straight into the keyboard – if there is a such a process, I’m fairly sure it varies from week to week. Still, this is a blog and I never promised quality nor quantity… although I have fallen into regularity. If that’s a word 🙂
The Ever Lovely Mrs Jones was off on business a few days ago and as such, I took the time to assemble a few ideas for the coming visit to Chams – which by the time you read this, will have been and gone. With summer approaching, I’m experimenting with jeans / trousers. I don’t know if it’s a fashion thing, but of the two pair of leggings I own, they don’t fit properly – at least in my mind – around the ankle. They seem… too lose. Not an issue when you’re wearing boots, but with ballet pumps or heels, it alters the look somewhat. Perhaps it’s back to footless tights? Hmm….
Later in the week
With the magic of television, we skip forward to Friday 🙂 Post-Chams is different. My skin feels better, perhaps it’s the moisturising effects of my foundation or the whole cleanse/tone/moisturise routine that follows coming home. My feet are emitting the odd squeak (Ed: not literally) of pain after an evening in heels and my lips feel different to what they normally do. For the last few nights out, I’ve skipped on lippy and gone with a lip-gloss. The latter I got from Clinique and I love it: it stays put, feels good, colour’s great too – what’s not to like? 🙂 Do I mind the very minor foot pain? No, not really, in some ways it’s a little reminder of what went on. A bit like when you get home from a long walk and while your feet may twinge a little, there’s that good feeling of having been somewhere. Not that I recommend heels and hillwalking at the same time – it seems awfully drafty up on the moors (Ed: t’moors?)… and you’ll wreck your stillies. 🙂
The AGM went well and we had a pretty good turn out too. I took a laptop along and did the minutes. I suppose in some way I’m keen to catch the history of the group. Talking of history, Sandy & Tracey both said that they ended up trawling through this little blog to help them remember what we’d all got up to. See, it’s not all me-me-me 🙂 Weak jokes aside, I’m glad that it was useful – I know I’ve flicked through older posts, so I had something to put on the what goes on part of the Chameleons Web site.
