I've picked myself up off the floor after having the mother of all hissy fits.
Oh, it wasn't pretty with much wallowing, gnashing teeth, puffy face and curse words that would make a dock worker blush. (I have a rather extensive curse word vocabulary I am embarrassed to say. Comes in handy sometimes.)
But after self medicating with a healthy dose of vodka and perspective I am ready to put on my big girls blouse and be an adult, (gulp!) and face what may come. I will probably whinge and moan a lot but hey, baby steps right?
Seen as a whole, the big picture can seem so daunting, so overwhelming, so I have broken down all my worries so I can face each individual issue. And then they appear a little more manageable.
And some worries I've boxed up and hidden away in a dusty recess of my mind, where hopefully they will be forgotten, like algebra and the periodic table, never to be noticed again.
And some problems just need a little spin on them.
Why fret over the hubby, lying prone in the middle of the lounge. Throw a pretty rug over him and pretend he is a new decor item like a giant ottoman.
Don't stress over the fate of my career. I have always wanted to join the circus. Perhaps now is the perfect opportunity!
Yes I am being flippant, but I had to get out of my vicious head funk.
My head was doing my head in!
Halloween perked me up no end despite it not being a big deal over here. (One day!)
We had a Halloween special event at work which was a hoot with most of my lovely elderly residents being good sports and donning witches hats and perfecting their ghoulish cries and crone cackles.
I chose to be Queen of the Spiders and put up with my wig giving me that "spider crawling on my skin" feeling all day.
So worth it!
This vintage frock cheered me up too.
So deliciously pink, you can't help but feel brightened when wearing it.
And doesn't my newly op shopped hot pink bag go perfectly?
I can't believe I have only worn this dress twice before. I was always totally stumped by my lack of either pink or blue heels to match.
Um, duh! (Smacks the head!)
Beige heels! Of course!
The neckline is adorable.
And with the dresses little splashes of blue to coordinate with, my blue cardigan was brought into the picture in case all of that pink got out of control.
You can thank the filter Lomo for this nuclear pink shade!
I'd like to thank everyone who spared a kind word for a down in the dumps girl - you all perked me up and picked me up from my doldrums.
