This is one of the few shots I have of myself without my glasses, and for that reason it's quite flattering. Everybody else sees me with my glasses on but that's not what I see nor how I think of myself and for this reason I want others to see me as I really am. And if you look carefully you can just see the strap of my red polka-dot bikini which I intend to wear throughout my holiday with my friend Viki in August!

Clutterfree zone

Clutterfree zone, originally uploaded by Red Snapper9.

I've never really understood how it is that some parts of my house are so clutterfree whilst others are just a mess. (You can see examples of this in the photos of my desk earlier in my Blog). It's as though there are two sides to me which need to be nurtured - the creative person who needs to have lots of things around her to stimulate her imagination, to leave her mark on the world she occupies; and the other person who needs simple and calming spaces. Perhaps I need the clutterfree spaces as a respite from the busy mind side. I certainly have a tendency to be manic and this may just be an extension of this. Whatever the reason I know that this simple space is important for my sanity and is hence an interesting insight into my character, and my taste ... I don't do chintz!
