Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone! =)

Good tuesday i hope? =)

This is one of the first 5 outfits i wore when we arrived from Dubai and yes you guessed it right, i wore it to have tea—the highlight of my day. Everyday!=( Oh you guys have no idea how lucky you are to have jobs!!! Your days are paid and you get tired and sleep fast! The thing is we do sit down and talk for hours about work and everybody has things to share, kids are difficult in school but fun, the man had 200 meetings in one day, blah blah blah and i’m just there, listening, knowing that when they’re done they will turn to me and ask “What about you my little Rotty?” (Rottweiler! Isnt my husband sweet? Sometimes he also calls me Sticky….stick insect! Black widow Spider, Praying Mantis and Bush Baby and on good days? Little monkey. While i call him MY DARLING even when i’m angry. Sad life i have.=) But please don’t think i’m a really horrible person, i’m actually the only one who cares enough to give our guard some chicken from the bucket as we enter the building. The only one who cares enough to ask if our cleaning lady (one who cleans the stairs in the building) if she’s had lunch. These nicknames are all my mother’s fault—they believe i am mother reincarnated and since mother is not here, or they’re too scared to call her names, i get them. Mom is the typical moster-in-law as far as the man is concerned, and god, mum cooked him lunch and peeled oranges for him! But then he always made me taste them first, just in case. =) Anyway, so he’d ask me that and all i can say is, yeah, i did the garbage, i started the ironing but didnt finish, i did the laundry, bathe the doggies, yes i did water the (new) plant. I am a home alone child who talks to dogs all day. So whenever you feel tired or fed up with your jobs, think about people like me. =) I can’t even really get excited about the TGIFs really, all week is (lonely) weekend for me. Anyway, about the outfit, well, what can i tell you, it’s just one of those days when you walk in the street and these teenagers look at you and think you look like a ghost or someone from the old movies, to think that the only vintage piece i was wearing was the belt, everything else is available in the stores, but they wouldnt know that of course because the live in their Nikes and Adidas and jeans, they even think that Levis is too “old” for them. It’s fine, as it’s also one of those days when i get to put a smile on old people’s faces, they are the only ones who know that the hat i am wearing is called a “boater” and not some crazy hat i made myself. Our english friend actually liked it, he was a bit stunned seeing someone (and someone he knows!) wearing it, and he said “I didnt know that those are back again. But you should try and style it with a feather or a flower, it’d be nice.” I hope you like it too.=)

That’s it for me, will check your chicness and then do the laundry!! =(

Love Love Kiss Kiss
