Tonight I am NOT going to indulge in self-pity
about the (insert rude word here) new Finance System.
To prevent myself from doing this
(which is very tempting)
I will take a tip from my dear friend, Nancy,
and make a list of small indulgences
Jade nail polish for toes
Carmine asters in a blue jug
White sun dried sheets
Opening the back door
to look at the pale rain-washed sky.
Creamy mounds of vanilla frappucino
Stroking the visiting tortoiseshell cat
A message to MasterM.
"I raise you a brown bulldog in a green swing"
Talking autumn clothes strategy with MissM.
"grey is the way forward"
Looking through my collection of photos
of blue Portuguese tiles.
A tray of perfect red strawberries
- a gift for our new neighbours.
Right - that's enough.
I feel better already.
I will call the helpdesk tomorrow.
