The 13th & 14th; Feels like autumn.
The 13th of August. It feels like autumn now. Just because it is a more normal temperature, but it seems particularly chilly. I've put my bedsocks back on at night. Full length leggings at the gym. And in a few weeks I'll be complaining that it's too cold.
This morning, I wrote up a blog post, then started the next part of the dress - I think I might actually finish it this evening. Got through a couple more episodes of House, too. It's only on NowTV for 17 more days I think, so by no means will I see all of it but I can probably do another season.
After lunch, I tried to pay for my new Blue Badge over the phone, but the system seemed to break down so I'm going to try again tomorrow. Then I went to the gym and had a very nice productive session - I think Mondays are the quietest day. Unless it's just because everyone's on holiday. Whatever the reason, I am happy.
The 14th of August.
Finished the dress! Technically I could do some more edging but it's not vital - I like the way it looks. This morning, after my breakfast, coffee, and paying for my Blue Badge (it worked this time), I went upstairs to try the dress on and take some photos. That took a while because I had to keep resting after moving the mirror and getting changed. But happily, it fits, and looks good! And if I wear a black vest and black tights underneath then I don't need to purchase a slip.
I spent my afternoon a bit upstairs, a bit downstairs. I played a little more Rayman, but not as much as Saturday - thankfully neither of the levels I was doing were as difficult or annoying as that one! Then I came down to do some more of that cardigan I was working on before the dress and watch House. I'm nearly at the end of season two and I did some crying when Foreman nearly died. I really ought to not get so attached to functional characters.
Off to Wales tomorrow! Taking Taid for lunch in Conwy. Hopefully that means I will see some good dogs.
