So we are almost in August. How quick has the year gone? Scary.
My mum left this morning, but I had to go to work and didn’t have the chance to take her to the airport. It wasn’t all bad, because I’m pretty sure I was going to cry a river. Feeling very sensitive today, for several reasons.
I’m a creature of habit – I like to feel comfortable in my life and am not so keen in big changes. It might be why changes come in bundle in my life. I’m normally fine with changes that don’t involve having to deal with many people, i.e. moving houses and changing cars are ok. Difficult, but I can enjoy them. But when it comes to interacting… geez, it freaks me out. Going back to uni and changing jobs for example.
It might sound a little too much for you, but going back to work after 13 months away, having my mum around for more than a month and seeing her going back so soon, changing jobs, knowing that in 3 weeks time my in-laws are going, Laura will go to the nursery and winter will soon be here is giving me the creeps. I could do without the changing jobs bit, but it’s too late. It’s done. And I hope I won’t regret.
The weather was nice today – a little bit too cold for my liking, but beautiful nonetheless. I decided to go all summery to work (could have used an extra layer), abusing the mish mash of colours (pink, red, yellow, blue, white) and even wearing sun glasses! I don’t know if I ever mentioned here, but I totally dislike sunglasses. They might be cool (although I don’t see myself as cool wearing them; I’m more like “snobbish without a reason”), but I hate the fact that the day becomes dark and the bright colour of the sun and the sky are totally deformed but its lens. As I say “I rather be blinded by the light and live in the shadow”. I got my sun glasses really cheap, 2 pounds or something – cheap and I look like Stallone Cobra.
Here are more photos for you (taken with my mobile – some of them quite old):
