Back to routine and getting ready for summer
We’re back into “normal” routine again this week in glorious sunshine and it feels slightly strange and lovely all at once. Our house is overloaded with sweet Eid goodies like coconut cakes, mini bakewells, lamingtons, pink cupcakes, and Aussie crunch. We’re making a valiant attempt to eat it all and, so far, we have been like heroes ploughing through it all. The thing with consecutive fasting for a period of time is that your stomach definitely shrinks and it means that it’ll take time to get back to proper portions again. It’s not a bad thing, just something we forget each year.
I was thinking about summer today and have realised how absolutely jam packed it is. We have a holiday coming up, then my baby nephews wedding, followed my sister in laws 40th, my birthday and then another wedding. I need to intersperse mad work stuff in there somehow and I think that already takes us into September. I also need to get some serious swimming lessons as I’m fed up of being a nervous bad swimmer and I need to brave contact lenses. I’ve found myself wanting to wear my “probably rarely for driving” glasses more and more and I think contacts would be a nice option to have every once in a while. I’m quite liking my nerdy Clark Kent specs for now so I may just become one of those serial glasses polishers. Time will tell!
