FANCY PANTS [LAYERING LEFTOVERS]


Leftovers. Like a bunged-together dinner?

Yes... sort of. You see we are in the middle of renovating. The worst part, actually. The bit where you live on top of each other in two small rooms, while the rest of the house is basically unliveable.

Fights? There might have been some.

Need of space? Definitely.


So, when I took the time to pack my boys' bags for a two month renovation intensive, mine was left to the last minute. That meant packing my three newest op-shop purchases, my renovating clothes and blundstone boots. Not much else, so it seems. Did I mention that I'm also completely incapable of packing for future cold weather when the day of packing is sweltering hot?

And on the rare occasion, when I'm not wearing work boots, I'm ferreting through my bag thinking, "Why did I pack that?" And now, I'm layering leftovers.

This is what I ended up with. Not exactly exciting or cutting edge. But it was clean, warm and I had make up on. That always feels nice after feeling dirty, dusty and chalky for most of this week.


So, sunny-side up! Here I am looking presentable, and making do. And I'm happy with that.

Do you pack your bags better than me? Are you able to remember how it feels to be cold, when you're currently boiling hot?
