I'm feeling a little 'bits and pieces' today. Not really here but not really there at the same time. My mind's on so many things right now. There's excitement, there's nerves and the good old 'can't wait until it's all done'. But there's also a whole heap of reflection and a sense of how far I've come in the last little while, in so many aspects of my life.
I often get like this before a 'big' day. Which is one way of describing tomorrow. The day will begin at the crack of dawn with tests to see how things are going with regard to the Sooooo situation. Then I have to re-interview for my job because the position is now being made permanent. And then, Mr SSG and I will be celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary. Quietly, I'm thinking, with a home cooked dinner and some illicit ice cream for dessert. I am sorely tempted to get some Cherry Ripes to make a sauce to go with the ice cream. If I get around to it, I will share the recipe for the sauce. The one I've found is 100% microwaveable which is always good for a mid week dessert.
Anyway. I'm getting a full 24 hours ahead of myself. Better get on with today's post....
Firstly with a quick snap of what I wore when my mind was on other things...
|Trousers - next, T - Emerson at Big W, belt - Esprit, bangle - Marni at H+M, bag - Louis Vuitton.|
Sometimes, even I'm baffled by the things I bring home from Costco.
But this 6kg (resealable) bag of food grade sodium bicarbonate was a bargain just too good to refuse. I use bicarb everywhere around the house - cleaning, to deodorize the fridge, to wash my hair and even in cooking every so often. It was a purchase that would pay for itself. Possibly over decades. Despite my widespread use of the cheap as chips salt, the actual amount I use for each purpose is probably a tablespoon here and there at most.
As I was mulling over how this bag of bicarb could be with me for the next decade, I had a helpful thought. Don't people make bath salts with bicarb? Google tells me they do indeed. At quantities of around a cup per bath....
So I gave it a go this evening. A scoop of bicarb followed by a drizzle of that delicious Pomegranate Noir bath oil. It was bliss. The salts made my after work soak even more soothing and conducive to productive thoughts about the challenges that tomorrow will bring.

It was actually harder to buy the prizes than I thought because my workmates are all so different in age and lifestyle, but I think I've got most people covered. You can never go wrong with a portable cutlery or kitchenware. At least that's my take on my purchases.
I hope the prizes go down well or at least with a laugh. We're also having a green themed lunch on the day. I will report back with any interesting food sightings!
I'm signing of for now. I have an early start tomorrow and you're right, I do have to figure out what to wear.
