Severe bruising, fatigue, and the stress of un/employment has taken me away from writing for a couple of days. (MISS ME? Ahh… you’ll survive!)
But after two full days of sticking medicinal patches and applying heat packs all over my body, I’m finally ready to face the world again…
Or so I thought.
Driving class was an absolute chore today – mainly because I’m still aching all over. My neck is still especially sore, which meant that checking my blind spots was nothing short of torture.
Fortunately, I had friends to look forward to after class. Seeing lovely people such as my dearest D, Shaz, Evie, SH, WL, Miss J, Mdm A and Mdm M reminded me just how lucky I was while I was holding my full-time job. Mdm A and Mdm M even managed to make our Very Serious Conversation enjoyable, though their combined loveliness didn’t make my decision-making process any easier.
Mdm M in particular (I love calling my boss that. Makes her sound like a top secret service agent.) just seemed to know exactly where I am, and where I hope to be heading without me even having to say a word.
I still have a couple of days and a handful of hours to go before I make up my mind, so I thought I’ll write this for Mdm M, who thinks a ‘What’s in your bag?’ post is in order.
“Look at the colour of her bag! Says so much about her state of mind right now!”
Brolly ‘cos I keep getting caught in the rain when I go for my driving classes.
A fan ‘cos I’m a secret Geisha-Ninja.
Sunblock ‘cos… well… have you ever met a tanned geisha?
(Rather, fan and sunblock thanks to my many afternoon rehearsals.)
Elastic band, discontinued lipbalm =(, girl stuff (!!! Tee. Hee.), driving booklet, organiser, favourite pencil, mirror, eyedrops.
Ancient iPod, wallet and coin pouch, plaster, hydration, theory books that I am giving away.
Dream Country reflection book, favourite pen, inspiration – Jeanette Winterson.
