I feel very sorry for my poor husband. About 15 years ago he met this total babe. She used to be so excited to be in his presence that she would do everything she could to make herself casually attractive. She was always dressed simple, sexy and gorgeous. She was regularly preened, clipped, and waxed. I don’t know where that women has gone but she sure hasn’t been around here for awhile…
Last month I went and had my hair cut and the hairdresser totally botched it up. She cut it crooked and decided that I could wait on getting highlights (wrong!). I came home and hated it so much that I did the most logical thing: I started wearing scarves and hats to cover it up. Would I have done that 15 years ago? No, I would not. I don’t know where I got the idea that it would be okay to do it now.
I had to get the tires on my car changed and as I was waiting I spied a big sign for a salon down the street. I just walked in and prayed that it would come out okay…
It did. I’m happy and vow to keep on top of this from now on. Not only does hubby deserve better, I do too.

Our last yoga class of the year was accompanied by the sound of rain pelting on the roof. It was just heavenly. I went into class feeling grumpy, anxious and disconnected but afterwards my mind was tied back onto my body again.
There were lots of hugs and See You Next Years too… it’s a really small and unpretentious class. I want to get a card or wee pressie for the teacher, I’m so disorganised. I jibber-jabbered a thanks for a great year but the class means so much more to me than that. I went in there a year ago obsessed with Doing Things Right and wanting to be bendy and fretting about my body and now it’s just my weekly oasis of calm and reconnection.
