It can be okay to pull out of some things. If I look at what is stressing me out in my diary, it’s easy to see that some things are non-negotiable and must be faced (eg exams). But some things can be gotten out of, the people involved probably won’t think any less of me for cancelling, but I might just score enough extra space to breathe (eg social engagements). It can be okay to say “I know I said yes, but now I’m saying no.” (but better to improve at saying no in the first place so one doesn’t get a rep for being unreliable)
When your hair matches your mallets
Excited to be starting work on editing a book. Also excited that it’s sunny and I can read in my hangout pod thing. Also bemused that it’s 9 degrees and feels pleasant.
Not a triplet but a…twentytwoplet? I think I underestimated this piece.
So the layers aren’t even, and there should be nine. But seven layers taste just as good! And it means I just need to make it another time to practise :)
New post at The Bexfiles (link in bio). Also, the post is not about Paris but I rather like this photo of stairs at the Arc de Triomphe.
It’s an exciting day. We’ve not had a functional stove since before Christmas. Our valiant camping hot plate did its best but now we have this marvellous induction cooktop and I can’t believe how fast a pot of water boils on it. Also so grateful to know a retired sparky to install it and refuse to accept payment :)
