Walking to work

Today is Walk to Work Day. To mark the occasion I thought I'd share with you my journey to work this morning...

Note the serious business-like demeanour in picture one as I leave the bedroom. The eagerness to get to work in picture two as I swing through the hall. And the fact that, even with a 3 second commute, I arrived in the office late!

You are so funny. Those pictures cracked me up. At least you get dressed. I don't often get out of my pj's to work.

Don't tell anyone I said so but the picture of you looking at the clock looks exactly like your mother.

i'm cracking up laughing here! do you really get all spiffed up in a blazer and skirt to work from home? or is it just for the camera?

I always dress for work but yesterday i needed something corporate that would also be comfortable for a 3.25 bus trip to Sydney followed directly by a Friday night at the night noodle markets in Hyde Park (which we ended up not going to)

And here I was feeling casual as the jacket and skirt didn't match and I had no pantihose on (Friday, you know)

As for the hair it changes on a 6 weekly basis depending on how Boyd is feeling and on a daily basis depending on how it decides to dry. Sometimes I miss the old Sinead O'Connor look I used to have - never had to think about it then.

And Pinar - I bought a Thai lunchbox for $7.50 which contained a curry puff, a spring roll and rice with stirfried veges, cashew nuts and tofu. Yummo.

(Grandmother - I'm ignoring your comment! ;-))
