Yup, made that up!

Met with lovely Lin and her festival friends. So so tempted to book Wilderness and Bearded Theory for 2019 but with no companion, meh :(

Above notwithstanding...............brilliant company and so glad I made the effort! Lin's festival friends are great. Fet, but not!

Cocktails, wine and good food, in very convivial surroundings, with chatty, educated and erudite peeps. What a lovely fin de siecle to the week. And roll on Le Weekend!

I am kinda tempted to call on the wolf. I feel fecund and very naughty. And very alpha female. Guy is safe, but not safe. I never "quite" know where I am with him. 20+ years and he still lingers. It's been 12 years now, but he's still there. And I would still kiss the hand that devours me.
I'm about to go and have a bath and do my hair, I cancelled this morning's hairdresser appt. I was aiming for a lie in, however, next-door-but-one are having a loft extension built and the bloody builders were at it by 8am. That and crying cats got me out of my cosy repose. I totally forgot that I wanted to start a yoga class too.

Next up, something happened that would ordinarily have made me upset and/or angry. It didn't, I took it in my stride and still feel absolutely calm about it.

Out of the blue, I decided then to go big knicker shopping. Instead, I ended up buying a silk floral matching set from M&S who suddenly have a half price sale on. And then some gorgeous embroidered jeans in a smaller size. And then I treated myself to a few little cut price morsels from the Food Hall, sea salt caramels in a presentation box, £1, rhubarb conserve, also £1. And some steamed prawn dim sums. I've also got little strawberries from rotten corner, and I think I might make a quick jelly with those. And at some stage, I'll truffle through my lovely sets of matching underwear, I have a few, and I really should be wearing them.

Den told me how much he's leg-lifting at his gym. And so I totally upped my game. On 10 out of 12 machines, I did MUCH better. Of course I will never be able to do what a burly biker does, but I can always do better. So I did. I am quite pleased with my re-shaping progress thus far. I haven't lost a ton of weight, but my hourglass figure is returning. I would like to lose another stone before Bangkok, which is 2 months away, so do-able. I am not dieting, just watching what I eat, and it's working, in conjunction with the exercise.

Slavey came and cleaned (a bit, he's useless) and boo turned up unannounced, which I though was sweet. To say goodbye. He's off on his annual TA jolly. To Italy. I am jealous. But it's incentivised me to book a flight for next year! I got a hug! i also got a surprised slave, who was naked, scrubbing the floor at the time.

Discovered I mis-read the advice about the pub tomorrow, so I will be cycling after all :)

It's nippy. The evenings are drawing in a tad now. That's not good, but the fact that I can start wearing all my snuggly leisurewear is!
Possibly not my best shot, but it was such fun! We did have a man with us too, but he was taking the photo.
