A Windy Day in BA
The wind chimes on the balcony are banging away, good thing the noise of the wind and the rain and traffic mute them some, my neighbors would probably not be happy with me otherwise.
Of course, hearing wind chimes during the day, beats having to listen to high heels clacking along the bare wood floors over my head day and night so we are even .
For some reason I woke thinking that today would be a sunny Spring day with possibilities of walking, shopping, cafe stopping.
Instead, here I sit.
Eating my scone and drinking my Vitamin Water.
What a fabulous Ex-pat life I lead.
Stop the jealousy now.
You too can do this.
You know what this all means don't you?
I am putting off my chores.
Yes, I still have chores, life is not all scones and vitamin water. . I have to get my closets in better condition, I have to find shoes that were put away and somehow disappeared.
I have to decide which purses to pack and which to bring with me.
I think I might be one of the few people in the world who has a suitcase packed with purses .. I must be able to change them over after a period of time and I have trouble making decisions.
Which purse to carry has made me late for countless appointments.
We will not discuss this further.
Do people still say purse ?
We saw a film yesterday.
I think it was good. I have already forgotten what it was.
Oh ... yes ... how could I forget ... it was so cold in the theatre that I wished I had a fur coat or big woollen throw .. I will have to remember to bring a blanket next time we go to the movies.
The film ? oh yes, it was Red Lights with DeNiro and Cillian Murphy.
Good but ... well.... forgettable.
Now to leave the computer behind and go do something ... less fun but probably more useful.
But just think of all the fun stories I will have ... me and the closet and the shoes and bags, thrilling.. really.
