Even if you have a blog and are following me, chances are I won’t follow you. Just for now. I hope you won’t take my lack of interest personally. I know it’s not the done thing and I am not trying being rude, it’s just that this blogging thing is new and all about me for now. So, apology offered in advance, forgive me for what I am about to do and all that.
This blog is for me, by me, about me. I am being selfish you see; just for now. Maybe soon I will follow you, but there’s a chance that I won’t want to know what you are up to. But I do know that there are a few of you out there who will indulge me in this season and will even encourage me in my selfish phase. This is for you.
Continuing the self-indulgent theme I went shopping today for my upcoming trip to Sweden. Shopping for balaclava’s in the summer month of January is quite a thing. There was only one style available and it had this unattractive gauzy covering for the mouth and some sort of elastic covering the face. Thank you, but no.
I chose a lovely beanie and scarf instead. I will wrap it around my head and face ”a la desert nomad” which I find much more appealing. And you can see my face, which will be a bonus for all the pictures I plan to take.
I am staying with some amazing friends in Simonstown for the weekend and I am getting spoilt rotten. Lavish breakfasts and bed time treats. I plan to return the favour guys J
So I will leave you with a pic of said beanie and the other items I have chosen for my trip to the (almost ) North Pole. Apparently it will be “warm” when I arrive so I won’t have all the moisture in body freezing the instant I step off the plane. How disappointing.
