#BEDM: Day 21 (and a catch up..)

dress: laura ashley (vintage)
heels : Spartoo
(Iron Fist Women's Black Sheep Peep Platform Open Toe )
I've fallen a little behind with just about everything over the last few days. I've missed out a few of the #BEDM topics as a result but here's a little round-up.

And an outfit post, because I seem to be building up quite a few sets of photos which haven't been posted yet.and I wanted to show off these shoes (similar here).. I know that Iron Fist can be a little too goth-y for my liking, but these had lambs printed on them. And polka dot bows. So I kind of clashed them with this dress, which I'm rather pleased about, because the last time I wore it I could hardly get the zip done up.

In fact, the last time I wore it was for a BBQ with my very best friends (see how nicely that linked in with the topic for #BEDM Day 18!) where one of them told us she was pregnant. Eep. I've said it before, but I don't get to see my best friends as often as I'd like to. I think I need to start managing my time differently, so that the things which *should* be more important, get the time and focus they deserve, instead of being crossed out and postponed in order that the things I feel*obliged* to do get space.

I miss these girls all the time.

As far as the other days go, I don't have a lot to say.. I could just about walk to work, but I never do because I swim at the gym which is about 10miles away, before heading to the office every morning, and usually rush off to whatever meeting or spinning class I have on that evening - I don't very often get to go straight home from work.

I don't have any complaints about my job, I enjoy going to work every day and think that the last few years, although tough, have provided me with some very valuable experiences. If we are talking pie-in-the-sky dreams, I might like to start a dress shop one day and sell some of my designs, but to be honest, I firmly believe that you should keep your work and hobbies separate; I actually wouldn't want to have to make a living from something I like to do for fun.

I don't have many traditions, if I'm honest. I keep a diary, which I write in every day, which is something I used to resolve to do every New Year's Day, but never managed to get more than a couple of months into the year. The past few years have been a lot better, though. It seems firmly part of my routine, these days.

And finally, I haven't had a lot of time to catch up with the news, although know there's been a rather sad story this week which has affected some local friends.
