Best Laid Plans

I had plans for today. I have plans for the rest of the week. I have that novel to finish editing.

So I’ve spent this morning pottering about on the internet, not doing any of that. I’ve been perusing others’ blogs, and crafty sites for rings, like Etsy and Not On the High Street. And I’ve been generally window-shopping on the Net. I’m too lazy to actually go out window-shopping. Especially as there’s a greater chance I might actually spend money I don’t have if I can physically see the item. If it’s online I can umm and ahh about it and dither while I make a cup of tea and save it somewhere for another day.


Technically, we got my wedding ring way back in November. I just like to look. And find ones which I think might be more suitable, or look better alongside my engagement ring. Or which I just happen to like. I’m more of a ring sort of person anyway. I normally forget about earrings and necklaces, and bracelets usually annoy me. They’re still pretty to look at though. And nice to wear for special occasions, obviously. Just not every day.

See, the thing is, I’m a bit of a magpie. I like pretty shinies. Like I like to go hunting for pretty vintage and vintage style dresses. Mostly I just look though, which isn’t much better since then I’m easily side-tracked from everything else I’m supposed to be doing. Like editing.

It’s not that I’m a high-maintenance sort of woman. I don’t spend hours getting ready, or fuss about my hair being messed by the weather or anything like that. I’m a woman of fairly simple needs. They’re just sadly expensive needs. I like nice, well-made clothes – which I can rarely find on the high street; I’m a bit fussy, you see – and pretty jewellery – which isn’t helped by sensitive skin not liking base metals.

And steak. I’m a simple creature, me. Oh well, back to the editing!
