I look a wreck today because I’ve been awake since 3am! Unfortunately it’s not from celebrating the festive season.
First the ducks were making too much noise then I heard the teenagers next door making a nuisance of themselves. I started drifting back to sleep then one of the boys woke at 4am. Walking around like a weary zombie seems to be part and parcel of motherhood; thankfully it doesn’t happen much anymore.
So with my brain feeling like mush I don’t have much to say for myself. And I’m having a bad-clothes day (some might call it a ‘fat’ day) where everything I put on feels terrible because I’ve pigged out on too much chocolate all weekend. I’ll just get back on the horse, so to speak, and go for a run tomorrow and eat a healthy dinner, with no high-calorie snacking.
Speaking of dinner, I tried a new recipe last night and it was a total flop! The chicken hokkein noodles was supposed to have char siu sauce but I couldn’t find any and used light soy and oyster sauce instead. It must have been loaded with salt because I guzzled about a gallon of water, which would probably explain my bloated state today!
Back to the wardrobe . . . I tried on lemon jeans, too tight; striped dress, too short; shorts, no good, before finally settling on white Jay Jay’s jeans, Dotti singlet and Valleygirl lace top. This mint green is a gorgeous color and a perfect combo with white. Added a matching bangle, Diva hoop earrings and Nine West heels. And now you’re Looking Good Girls . . . and hopefully feeling better tomorrow!
