And now for something completely different.
Last year I tried on Mark's leather jacket on a whim and everyone in the room told me I needed to get one. Then everyone in the house who had one brought theirs out (Roberts had two) and demanded I try them on. It was agreed upon that though I needed a leather jacket, I needed to be choosy about the cut and size (as I am of odd-or-pronounced-at-least shape and stature).
And who found a leather jacket of a unique cut in the correct cut in a charity shop for under £5? *Points to self with thumb.* This guy here!
Also inquired after a duvet (I gave Clover my only one) and the shop worker was SO PLEASED to sell off a double duvet to me for £2, suggesting that I safety pin it folded in half so I can fit it in my duvet cover (they're always quite roomy). So despite not having safety pins, it's all settled! I'll do my get-thee-self-in-the-duvet-cover dance to get the folded-over double snuggly inside.
Today's itinerary: (i) Clover's first full English breakfast with me and Hayley at the cafe; (ii) Hanging out and watching Grey's with me and Hayls, grinning over ridiculous drama; (iii) Regular hanging out - probably getting Clover's clothes in my rainbow trunk to help her sort everything out; (iv) Eventually going to the Granby tonight for some drinking and dancing, as Clover is now legal for the first time in her life. (:
Today is a day of accomplishments and adventure. And every day tends to be better with a nap. Eeeven though I dreamed that the car I was in with my friend turned into a shoe, sex toys were sold on a pool table in a mall and I called out Draco Malfoy on his shite using a mall computer. Odd dream.
Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
