Buona Sera (practising my Italian)
Well, it’s the end of a very interesting and pleasant week. I have taken up a new challenge , the Italian class, which has given me something to focus on and it reminded me how much I love languages and learning new things, which made me feel good.
I have had a very rewarding week at work with some lovely, positive outcomes for the young people I work with. Which makes me very happy.
This morning, I saw the most wonderful sight on my way to an appointment. I drove past a field of horses, probably about a dozen and possibly a mixture of ponies and horses (I’m not really a horsey person so I can’t tell the difference – ponies seem a bit fluffier to me and smaller but that’s all I know). Anyway, I had to pull over and watch them as they were so entertaining. They were chasing each other, frolicking, playing and just generally having fun. I wished I had my camera with me and I will definitely go back there to take some photos or film them at play. That made me happy too.
I have also decided to give up on going grey. I have been growing out HALF my hair for a while now, to see what it looks like ‘au naturale’ (blimey, she speaks French too!). When I say half, I don’t actually mean left vs right. I have a (dyed) pink/purple fringe and I used to have dark brown for the rest of it. This bit, I have left to grow naturally. After several trims, it is pretty much its natural colour now. Which is a rather unattractive mish mash of brown, grey and silver, in no particular pattern. There are just ‘clumps’ of different colours. It isn’t a good look. The grey isn’t healthily glowing either. It’s matte. So, today I have decided to end the experiment and revert to dying the lot again. It may not look natural but it certainly looks better than the current faded effort…..
Tomorrow I start back at the gym and get myself back on track there. I’ve just made enquiries about a Burlesque dance class too so that may well be another on my list of projects this year.
And I get my new car radio fitted. It has been awful with nothing to listen to other than the sound of the engine this week.
So far, I’m liking 2012
I expect I shall look something like this when I am doing the burlesque dancing…..
