Scattered and Distracted

I'm all over the place at the moment.

Work is busy, my social life is busy, I'm frantically getting ready for running the bookshop at the conference in just over a week's time and I'm trying to design and source shopfittings for the bookshop at the new premises the Buddhist centre I attend is moving to. Last night I swung by the mid-week get together of the Sydney Photobloggers group, but then had to hightail it to the centre to start preparing to price all the books and other merchandise for the conference. It was brief but fun, and I got to meet up with some of my favourite Flickr-ites and meet a few of the ones I knew by name and photos only previously.

I don't really mind being this busy at the moment, although if my work was a little bit less busy that would be a huge help! Working on the conference and the new bookshop is exciting, and something I love doing. I do keep having those moments of almost panic though where I feel like I've forgotten to do something like vital, like order any books... I haven't, but it's like just before an exam where you have that moment of brain-freeze and think "Oh my God, I completely forgot to do any study!" even though you have.

Oh, and as a footnote; this just goes to show that my weight loss is still a work in progress. In my defence, might I add (can you tell I used to live with a lawyer?), that my jeans are getting noticeably baggy and I pulled in my belt another notch that very same morning! :)

I LOVED little house on the prarie. You know how much they had to save and scrimp to go to the store and buy just a ream of such fabric! :)

I can see how much weight you must've lost TOA. Not just the baggy bit at the front, but the creases at the side of your thigh near the hip. Definitely v.good.

Time for a new pair of jeans! I'm going to treat myself with a nice pair of G-Star jeans once my weight stabilises. Thanks for the compliments 60s Girl!

PS - I love that shirt, even if there is a touch of the Laura Ashley/Laura Ingalls about it...

A lovely shirt it is... you are so going to love trying on new jeans and they will fit beautifully.

Laura Ashley a bit passe i don't know but Laura Ingalls lives on forever.....just think, you and that shirt, a fireplace and a cold night on the prarie.....its all good TOA, its all good

You are being too hard on yourself... sounds like you are sticking with the weight loss routine; don't let the "downs" stop you!

I have that same problem myself (I am essentially given each of us advice right now!!)!
