What a trip! I can't quite believe I'm not in England (and my body can't either--I got up at 4.30 am). I've come back with a renewed sense of purpose and resolve but I have to give myself a day or so to recover from a late flight. I left London at 8 p.m. yesterday and got back here at 10.35 p.m. or so (I think the plane was late). Even though I got a cab (I'm usually cheap enough to use public transport), I still wasn't in much before 11.30 p.m. or, as my body knows it, 4.30 a.m. BST.
I like to ration out jet lag this end, eaking out each extra hour over the course of a week or two. It may be 12.37 here but I feel it is every bit of 5.37 p.m. I've really not done much today but starting tomorrow, those extra hours will be devoted to work or chores like cleaning up and going through my closet.
Which gets me to another point. After much thought, I've realized that some of my more coveted and rare Mayle dresses just aren't ones I wear. So I'll be posting some pictures in the next few days of dresses I'll be selling. Some are unworn (Josie romper in black silk, Katia dress), others worn once or twice. Once I've recharged my camera batteries--and my own batteries--I'll be listing some of them here. Some of the rarer items I may post on ebay.
