This and That
This past week has been one of the most hectic that I've had recently; I don't seem to have stopped moving. Don't get me wrong, it's been an incredible week - the best I've had in a long time - and while there are parts of it that I would like to live over and over again, I really need some rest! There are a lot of things that I'm worried about at the moment which would usually keep me awake long into the night, but I've been so exhausted that any sleep I have been able to get, I have relished.
So this weekend, after another night out tonight in Selby (my old friends from college are back home from uni), I'm kind of looking forward to having a bit of a rest. Just staying at home, no doubt nursing a hangover, and possibly trying to finally finish re-doing my bedroom (for the past six months half of it has been completed, while the other half is just a mass of clothes, books and cds that I'm yet to listen to. It needs sorting). There'll be no trains to catch, no deadlines to keep, no running around in a panic. Admittedly there'll also be nothing to look forward to (apart from a lie-in), but sometimes that bit of calmness is nice.
Today I'm reading: I'm still on Glamorama by Bret Easton Ellis, but I'm nearly finished. Because it's so twisted and confusing, it's a very difficult book to read, and you really have to concentrate to keep up with what's going on. But I'm nearly there. No doubt like his other books there won't be a defined ending anyway, so the conclusion to the story seems almost pointless.
Today I'm listening to: Of course it's Frankie & the Heartstrings. I only have six songs by them on a live record, so they are going round and round in my head on a loop.
Today I'm wearing: At the moment I'm at work, so I'm wearing a white shirt, black tapered-leg trousers and pumps. Actually this is more than likely what I'd be wearing anyway, only with more plaid.
I'll end with this. It makes me smile every time I read it.
