The week that nothing really happened…

This week felt long. Far too long. It felt like it was about three months long. This weekend has been about 5 minutes.
I think it's because it has been a pretty boring week. I had no impromptu dinner parties. I had no trip to the pub and I didn't discover a new life mantra.
I have:
  • Continued to listen to trashy romance audiobooks. My current one is about a medieval girl who is pretending to be a boy so she can go to Cambridge. I think she may soon been discovered by the rather dishy man who has taken her in…
  • Bought a new handbag and Tatty Devine necklace because I am a reckless spendthrift
  • Untitled
  • I have hennaed (?) my hair. I can't see a lot of difference but my work friend went "I can see it! Your hair has some life!" so that is a positive review.
  • I tried to write some blog posts. I have half-written a few…
  • I have taken a couple of selfies!
  • Untitled
    Particularly sexy face here..
  • I have read Lucy AitkenRead's Happy Hair book about giving up shampoo and it has really interested me because I have hippy tendencies and really want nice hair. If I could get gorgeously thick, healthy hair for very little effort I should be very well pleased. I am just going to start by washing my hair less and using less shampoo and see if I can stand it.
  • I have been thinking a lot about becoming one of those brave people who cycle round Oxford. I am petrified but I am planning on doing some cycling proficiency for grown-ups so that I feel confident, and don't piss everyone off/die as I negotiate the horror that is the roundabout after Magdalen Bridge. I would be so proud if I could actually do it without death, not to mention fit and rich.
Hopefully the coming week will be a little more thrilling. We are seeing some friends for dinner tomorrow night so that will break the doooom of Monday.
This week I am going to put a lot more effort into my work wear. Our department has a stupidly strict dress code which feels like school uniform and makes it easy to wear boring, drab clothes everyday. I vow to book interesting this week!
