Summer Holiday…

summer pastels over 40

School’s out!!!

Well, not school, actually, as I’ve been teaching summer courses, but you get the idea… It’s summer holiday, and the busy teacher can do whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Sleeping till noon, staying up all night, it’s going to be wild!!!

Well, let’s get back to the wild part later…  I mean, there’s so much I’ve been planning to do now that I have a bit more time. Now, let’s see…

I should finally sort out my wardrobe. Or at least put away the winter cashmere. And decluttering, I’ve been wanting to do that for ages. And now I can go to the gym every day if I want to. Or not… Maybe a couple of times a week? And I can finally start learning German: I could study for an hour or two every day. Or ten minutes. Isn’t that what I always say to my students: “a little bit every day is enough, and then it becomes a habit”, maybe I should take my own advice?

But I shouldn’t just withdraw from the world. Oh no, now that I have time I should reach out to other people, catch up with some friends. Maybe after they’re back from holiday. And social media, I could finally put some effort into it and figure out how it works. Or at least sort out my LinkedIn page. I’ve been meaning to do that for at least 4 years…

Or I could just catch up on some sleep. And watch some TV, I have a lot of catching up to do there, too. Yeah, I think I’ll start with that…

      Thanks, Greetje. I guess this outfit is a bit more sophisticated than what I've been wearing lately.

      I had to try print mixing because the skirt and the top have the exact same tone of mint green, I thought it would look good…Yes, I'll be spending some time in the UK, but not the whole summer (or the whole holiday).

      Thanks, Jacqui. There are always lots of plans, and never enough time (or energy) for all them, that's the problem.

    great necklace. The photo must have been taken in Finland. It's a dirt road like in many neighborhoods here in Alaska. You look awesome. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

      Thanks, Nicole. Yes, the photo was taken in Finland. Dirt roads are rather rare in big cities in Finland, but there are still a few in some suburban areas such as this one.
