Bits 'n' bobs

Another post that is a collection of random things:
  • My computer is broken again. Can you believe it?
  • I've finally got my new contact lenses. Now I just have to master putting the damn things in. Seriously - not as easy peasy as it looks!
  • Applied for yet more jobs. Sigh. This being unemployed malarkey is getting old now.
  • Apologies for the lack of brownie recipe. I shall remedy this tomorrow! Then I expect you all to baking away merrily :-)
  • Had lunch with my mum today. She rather fancies the hunky manager guy too.
  • Have been thinking about doing some self-portrait of the photographic variety. Not sure why, I was always dead against it.
  • In the process of giving myself a bit of a mini-makeover. I'm tired of having no confidence. Where's the fun in that?

That's it for now. My head is all over the place, which explains the structure of this post.

What's wrong with your computer? Same as last time?

I was wondering where the recipe went :)

A cross-generation hunk, eh? :)

Are contacts+self-portait+mini-makeover perhaps related?

My wife tried contacts recently, but found they didn't fit her eyes. She'd like laser surgery.

Blokey thought: Well, I can't see that you need a makeover, but if it makes you feel better :) See, that's men for you! I'm sure you'll get more sympathy from the others ;)
Although you could try to take that as a compliment ;)

What does your makeover consist of? I've no idea what you look now though, so it might be difficult to help. And I've never made any bigs changes myself - people I went to primary school with still recognise me in the street I've changed so little (I'm a bit taller now)

IM - config file 32 is stuffed. Or something like that. I just sighed, rolled my eyes and called the helpine.

I shall post the recipe this afternoon. Are you going to bake anything to take to your sister then? :-)

He is indeed a cross-generation hunk. You know, just your general common-or-garden hunk. (Ha!)

Contacts/self-portrait/mini-makeover are indeed related. Time for a change, me thinks. Not a huge change, but maybe just having a bit more confidence in myself.

Thanks. I don't think I look awful, I'm just looking to be a wee bit braver and - dare I say it? - sexier/more womanly in my style.

SandDancer - nothing big. Just maybe being a bit less cautious with colour, cuts etc. Really just looking to give myself a confidence boost - I feel I'm a bit too much of a wallflower at the moment!

Is that you with the curly red hair wearing the green hat? If so, you look great - the hat really suits you, both the style and that colour. You don't look wall-flowerish at all - your hair is very distinctive.

Still changes can be good (says she who has had more or less the same haircut since she was 3)

Yes, that's me. I'm blushing now! Thank you :-)

It's really more for me, just to give me a bit more confidence, and for something different. I stole that hat - but I quite liked it so I've bought a couple!

Oh, also meant to say, if something suits you and you're happy with it, keep it!

re:unemployment, as I've said before: I hear you (hug)

Oooh, I was wondering where the recipe was, I've been waiting for it so I can try it out ;) (no pressure or anything hehe)

Interested to hear how the makeover goes.I always think giving oneself an image overhaul is great for boosting confidence, and just generally making one feel 'better' about themselves.Definitely works for me.

Thank you - I really am blushing now!!

You have no need to be envious, you're so pretty :-)
