The afternoon was whiled away reading the Sunday papers and catching up on reading blog posts, followed by an impromptu mini pamper session, which, by the way, was long over due.
I very rarely have a long soak in the bath, but today, I just fancied one. I few beautifying tasks were undertaken, including painting my toenails for the first time in months. I've given up on painting my fingernails, as they can no longer take it and immediately start splitting. I'm considering using a nail strengthener to build them up, so that I can start to wear varnish again at some point in the future. (Any suggestions or advice on this point will be gratefully received)
I put on some lovely slouchy clothes and a brand new roasty pair of bamboo socks I received for Christmas. Here they are in a lovely deep pink colour.
I was given quite a few pairs of lovely socks this year and I'm enjoying wearing them. My sock drawer has had a cull as a consequence. I'm really starting to realise that it is these small things in life that make all the difference.
We ended the evening, fire blazing, bowl of nuts in shells left over from Christmas and favourite tipple in hand (no dry January here), catching up on a couple of episodes of a new to us BBC 4 French police drama called Spiral. We missed it last night on account of our visit to the cinema to see The Theory of Everything. Incidentally, it was a really good film, which I would heartily recommend.
Hoping you've had a lovely Sunday.
