I think for the new year, even though it's already 24 days old, I'm going to go with a new look...at least in my blog to start. I need to to shake up my routine. I need to shake up my wardrobe. Like most women I'm unhappy with my bod. Somehow I intend to do something about that. I need to be a bit more high maintenance than I usually am. I intend to work on my image (translation: lose weight and look less dumpy and frumpy) this coming year so I'll be the hottest 40 year old come next February. I need to plan now because it'll take me that long to accomplish it. :)
I don't know if anyone knows it, but I'm a bit of a Germanophile. I think I might have mentioned it on here before. I've never visited Germany, but the language and culture have intrigued me for years (actually since about 1986-87). I found an interesting blog <http://accessorypirate.blogspot.com/> by accident. I was Googling for a braided headband pattern and her site popped up. She is in Munich, but I think she is originally from the UK. She writes a bilingual blog: English and German. I think I may try that as well for practice in my upcoming entries. Maybe my friend in Hamburg will be gracious enough to correct my grammar and vocabulary (continually).
