I thought I'd interrupt summertime with some photos only four days old.
It was actually quite warm when I took these just before dusk this Monday. No coat required but you never can go wrong with mittens. At least not if you have ice block hands like me. Shaking my hands gives people a bit of a shock in summer but in winter it is positively death defying.
The whole bad circulation thing gets painful when it's cold out and when sting turns to numbness simple tasks like operating a door key can present a real challenge. So you won't be surprised when I tell you I'll splurge on a nice set of gloves or mittens any day. Especially when they come on a string. I am no toddler but I might as well be when it comes to keeping track of my gloves whereabouts.
Mittens on a string are perfect like that: When you're not wearing them you can keep your gloves, a hankie, heat pack or mobile in there and when it gets really cold you can layer them over your gloves for extra insulation.
You can sort of see my new short hair in these. Sort of. I think I'll keep it like this for some time so I am sure you'll see me sans headgear soon enough :) The main thing is it's actually healthy. Phew. Who would have thunk it. Stef without a head of straw :D Can you smell the smugness in the air? ;)
I was waiting on the weekend so hard and now it is within reach! Have a brilliant one you all :)
