Ok maybe not entirely, but you know that Spring is just around the corner. Alright, to be perfectly honest all I can really feel is how dry and frizzy my hair is, how those static shocks hurt and how dry my skin is that I look half woman-half reptile.
I have noticed how some trees are starting to blossom and how the weather is shyly warming up. I had 2 braai's this weekend and I didn't have to pull on a jersey once.
There are two things that I always freak out about though.
a) I am so lily white that I may blind anyone who isn't wearing sunglasses.
b) those layers of clothes come off to expose the layer of "blubber" I fondly called my layer of warmth.
There would actually normally be 3 things ... the third would have been that I would need an industrial strength razor to deforest my legs because *again* I fondly called them my "layer of warmth home grown stockings."
My legs have been silky smooth all.winter.long. Thanks to my relationship with European Boy. 'Nuff said.
OK no wait. They haven't been silky smooth all.winter.long. They have been silky smooth all for a few hours after I've shaved them (I'm not a fan of waxing. My legs, that is. Go figure) until I got cold, got goosebumps and then instantly had chicken flesh legs. God it pisses me off.
I have a LOT of changes coming up. All happening ON Spring Day.
I am moving into my fabulous, tiny bachelorette pad that has a little garden. I love gardens and while this may be tiny, I can't wait to sit on the patio in the sunshine and watch the birds.
Good grief. I sound like I'm 80. LOL
I can't wait to decorate and just have MY OWN space. I adore my family and I'm so grateful that I was able to move back 8 months ago after the breakup, but I really do need my independance and after running my own household for 4 years (my way) it has been difficult going back to living under "mom and dad's house rules."
An element of my job is also changing on the 01 September which is bitter sweet. It is exciting and sad at the same time. It's going to be quite an adjustment.
These are a few things that I'm looking forward to about summer:
Ice tea's and cocktail sundowners with my girlfriends.
Salads and fruit salads.
Summer dresses and slops.
Leaving my hair to dry naturally because this time the haridryer will be too hot, instead of welcoming! LOL.
A green city again. I'm over the drab brown.
The smell of suntan lotion.
I can't wait.
