It was the worst of times, it was the more convenient of times

Valentines Day was pretty uneventful at our place. It really wasn't helped by the untimely arrival of my red-headed cousin from Virginia.

Untimely indeed. My job interview was scheduled for this morning. Who wants to be having a job interview for what could be their dream job, when the "crimson tide" is in full flow?

As it turned out, my interviewer rang up to postpone until next Tuesday. On the one hand, it makes them look a bit disorganised. On the other hand, I won't have to feel intimidated by tremendously high standards, if I get the job.

So, instead of spending my childfree morning trying to give off professional vibes, I shopped for an outfit that would make me look like I deserve to be paid a lot. I didn't find anything.

It is hard to find just the right thing especially when family ahm.. comes to visit.

And with the weather the way it is it's hard to decide what to wear - something summery but carry a jacket, or something for autumn that isn't too heavy but will fend off those darn southerlies? Sometimes it feels like the hardest decision of the day...

Bring on the menopause!

angela: thank goodness I wasn't planning on wearing white trousers.

desiree: and this is why I had to go clothes shopping again, so I'd have something for every probably weather variable (except rain - it's impossible to find really good-looking, yet effective, rainwear).

kazer: well, I'm sure that just brings sartorial problems of a different sort...
