A little bit of sunshine, however small, is always an excuse (or maybe a motivation?) to get some washing done and out. I’m feeling such a lot better physically that I’m starting to dream of all sorts of wonderful things that I could get done but seeing as I had to put today’s (small) load out on the line in three shifts, I’m forced to accept that I must still be realistic. It’ll be small steps. One step at a step. But I’ll get there. Hopefully. I was beginning to worry actually.As you already know, I wear a Western hat. In summer, I wear a straw version. This is more of a traditional shape than my black felt one and the long brim takes a bit of getting used to. And the rustle can be very loud in my ‘ears‘ too! I like a sensible, shady hat in the sun.
This is my first pair of adult sunglasses that I got a few months back. Back when I first wore glasses in my pre-teen days, I had a giant pair of pink plastic sunglasses (you know the ones, with the thick black plastic lenses) that I wore stylishly over the top of my oversized multicoloured splattered plastic glasses. I’m glad that eyewear fashion has moved on considerably since then! When I started wearing contact lenses a few years ago, I realised that I could now finally wear sunglasses (never mind fashion, they have their uses). I couldn’t find any to fit. Much like normal glasses frames actually. So I’ve had a couple of children’s plastic sporty style frames but they’ve never fit very well, they kind of assume that children’s heads are totally spherical so the glasses have a very pronounced curve and they also seem to think that children’s noses are ridiculously skinny so they never sit on my bridge properly. Well, I don’t think I have a fat nose. (Paranoid thinking starts here). Of course, wherever I go, my knitting comes too. (I’ll show you what I’ve been working on another day, I promise). I enjoy sitting outside in the sun (as long as my head is covered) so I load up my chair with my latest knitting project (the cup holder is very handy for yarn balls) and get my Vitamin D top up.
You’ve got to make the most of the sunshine.
