Yesterday I went to Oxford Street for some retail therapy with a very close friend. She is also my chief bridesmaid for my wedding in May/June. So we looked at bridesmaids dresses. So many colours, but actually I wasn't keen on any of them. So I decided to splurge £31 on makeup instead. It made me feel good. And I got a free bonus bag full of exciting things. It doesn't take much.

I also splurged on a ridiculous dress. It's gorgeous but uncatergorical. It's too much for school but not enough for a night out . I had to remind myself that I am only 24 and the years are slipping by when I can get away with such a short dress. So I went for it. Will it ever see the light of day? Let's hope so. The night ended with Dominoes Pizza. The dress know looks more unlikely.

Today I was up at the crack of dawn. Zaf and I went to the gym. It was the first time we have ever been there together. I think he was impressed. We then went swimming. After the weekly shop I did some manic cleaning and music filing.

I had a call from a new student today. I was recommend by a current student. I phoned Martin, the flautist, to arrange a rehearsal for September Songs. Tricia called with news of the new venue for ELMA. As a result, the start of term has been postponed for a week.
