From 38 degrees on the first day of December down to 24 degrees on the second – Sydney summers roundhouse kick my butt every single frigging year…
Yesterday the sweat coursed down the back of my legs – today my legs are encased in leopard print tights to thwart the wind that is whistling around them (tights gifted to me by my friend Miss Nomes Messenger) and I am wearing a dark denim dress for Day 2 Darecember (Denim Dare)/Dressember 2012.
The kids are very excited by the dress wearing.
‘Mum when are you putting the dress on?‘ they clamour as soon as I stagger in the house wearing my pilates teacher uniform of black Lorna Jane compression leggings and a black Metallicus singlet.
I get changed.
‘Dear God‘ my husband says on first sighting of the leopard print tights. ‘Erm, interesting look‘ he follows on. Then ‘you look like a character from the Chronicles of Narnia. Would you like me to take some photos?’
And he did.
As I type this post, he takes a further look at my leopard clad legs. ‘Those are growing on me‘ he says.
Tomorrow the Dare is scarves…
Meantime, I received an email from the lovely people at Yoga Pose Weekly. The asana of the week this week is Bakasana (Crane Pose). They happened across my Anatomy of A Sea Change post from last year and invited me to submit this photograph:
I like Yoga Pose Weekly for heaps of reasons not least their manifesto of fun…
there are way too many yogis out there with poles up their arses.
If you like my photo I would be absolutely over the moon if you could HEART and LIKE it on their site.
