I’m on holiday… well, sort of. As a freelancer, I can schedule in some ‘no work’ time and ‘jet off to my holiday pad’, i.e. take a few days to relax in Homebase 2. Which is not really that different from staying in Homebase 1, except that I don’t have to think about work for 10 days. At least that’s the plan.

Anyway, Professor M and I are going on an actual ‘holiday’ together. By ‘holiday’ I mean that we can actually both take a few days off from work at the same time, which doesn’t happen too often. And now we are going to Barcelona for 3 nights…

So, as soon as I arrived in Homebase 2, I went on a little pre-holiday shopping spree: a dress and three pairs of shoes…

I don’t really have ‘a holiday wardrobe’ or ‘work wear’. In fact, I prefer to have  fewer pieces in general, in order to simplify my life. So, I need my clothes to adapt to both work and holiday, as well as to anything else life might throw my way.

I hope to get a lot of wear out of this dress, but time will tell…

By the way, with the exception of one, these items are already in my wardrobe and will come to Barcelona with me…
