Capricious

Capricious // 15 03 15074 // 365

It doesn’t hurt to talk today, and I seem to be coughing more. Although one would assume coughing more is bad, it normally means I’m getting better. I’m a bit achy, a bit stuffy in the head, but mainly it’s been a really really bad sore throat. It’s meant that I’ve not been able to visit my grandad and I’ve mainly felt sorry for myself all weekend.

Re purpled my hair as it had faded to blue. It’s annoying how quickly the red fades out of it, but at least it fades to blue; much better than when it was red (or pink) and it faded to manky orange!

The loss of naivety

Today I spent all morning ironing. Maybe a slight exaggeration but it did take a long time – my own fault for not doing it last weekend though!
This afternoon however was another story. I met up with my friend and we went to check out some locations – one of my all time favourite things to do – a little trip into the unknown!
I found (or rather my friend showed me) old buildings, old overgrown graves and bluebells (I actually found these on my own) so it was a very exciting.
Looks like there will be many return trips here, as it was super easy to get to ^_^
Bluebells on the way :-D

Blissfully unaware

Today I learnt an important lesson about making assumptions.
I had assumed that because leaves are easy to move about, it would be easier to make them look like they are being pushed apart. I failed to take into account that they all just blend into each other, or that leaves just fall to the side, they don’t really do much in terms of resistance …
Anyway, it is time to cook tea and I’ve spent a couple of hours on it.
Chalk it up as a learning experience.

The steep uphill struggle

Sometimes it looks like the climb to the top (whatever your ‘top’ might be) will be easy.
Sometimes you just know it will be a struggle.
Sometimes you don’t even try to excel because you are afraid of failure, or even afraid of what you will find at the top.

Today was a cold day; or at least I assume it was cold in the morning. Very frosty, and it stayed that way for quite some time. By the time we decided to go out for a walk, the frost had gone and it was cold, but not terribly so.
So far in the UK we have had a mild winter in terms of temperature. It has been a bit crazy in terms of wind and flooding though.

Solus per mortem

Solus per mortem003 // 365

Sometimes solitude is the best medicine.
These days it is so easy to stay connected; phones, tablets etc mean that most  of us are online most of the time. Meeting people in the flesh is replaced by a brief chat on a status. Despite this contact being virtual, it means that we are constantly in contact with others. Sometimes it is nice to just switch off and be totally alone.

I’ve always preferred solitude to the company of others. That is not to say that I don’t enjoy being with other people, more that if I spend time in others company socially for too long then I get worn out, for want of a better expression.
