My own personal Wednesday

It’s been 14 days into the new year and for the first time, I felt 2008 wash away and the positive feelings of having a new year infuse my spirit.

I took the Wednesday off for a dermatologist appointment (nothing to make you feel more pre-pubescent than a breakout). My day started off wonderfully with an 8.30 start, taking Dolce for a walk – the weather has been perfect – windy, cool with a hint of warm, morning sun. It was the kind of morning that makes you stop and inhale everything around you.

I then hit town for my dermatologist appointment – got a dose of Vitamin A pills that seems promising and then stopped in for a 1.5hr massage. (Is there anything else better to feed your soul?). I then had a grande caramel macchiato, stopped at Marks & Spencer, and finally ended at Cold Storage to pick up stuff for tonight’s bangers and mash. It’s been a long time since I wasn’t rushing around to make an appointment or walking briskly. I even had time to stop in front of Mothercare (like a childless Oliver Twist) and allowed my biological clock to kick in.

All in all, it was a perfect day and am looking forward to having dinner for my family and seeing little Caitlin.

I realised that I have a laundry list of resolutions for the new year, which of course, is setting myself up for failure but yet, the new year always brings hope.

  1. Learn how to drive (I got the book and everything)
  2. Exercise 3 times a week (this does not include the maniacal Friday dancing)
  3. Lose 5kg by June (one can dream)
  4. Get a massage once a month

All in all – not such ridiculous ambitions – they just require commitment (ha, my forte) and will. So, we’ll see.
