Random Sunday morning ramblings
Not having a working bathroom at the moment is a pain in the arse, though as luck would have it, my landlady owns a currently vacant unit three doors down, so we have somewhere we can go and shower and uh - do whatever else one does in bathrooms. I haven't bothered with makeup since they started, other than a bit of tinted moisturiser and some mascara to make me look vaguely alive - we're washing our faces in the kitchen sink sans mirror, and trying to do the full palaver of makeup removal and double cleanse is just too much hard work in that situation. My poor old skin will be looking a bit rough by the time the week is up, no doubt. As will Noodles' - though she doesn't care, she loves an excuse not to have to wash (ew).
Once the bathroom is done, the kitchen is next. That should only take a day or two, as they're not changing the structure, just replacing the cupboards and benches, and installing a dishwasher. Frankly, I could easily live without a dishwasher - I'd much rather have air conditioning. I said as much to my landlady, but she pretended she didn't hear me. *sigh* Another sweltering Adelaide summer to enjoy...
And a random question: are you a breakfast person? What do you have for breakfast? Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day - for years I would get up at ridiculous hours of the morning in order to make time for proper breakfast - poached eggs, mushrooms on toast, proper porridge, etc. I've slacked off this year and most days I don't have time for anything more than toast and Vegemite or one of those diet shake things, but on weekends, I usually have bacon and eggs, or Noodles makes pancakes. She makes the best pancakes I've ever had - way better than mine.
