Split Personality

Sometimes I think there are two of me in my head. There's the science geek and there's the yummy mummy. What am I enjoying on TV at the moment? "Lark Rise to Candleford" and "Science and Islam"! Bizarre or what?

Take my current thoughts: I have some money I was given for Christmas that I haven't spent yet. It's just for me, not for the house, so I can treat myself. What shall I buy?

The yummy mummy is thinking, "Mmmmm, the new Boden catalogue has just arrived, I really like this":

and "Maybe I can also get one of these?":

Whereas, my inner geek is thinking, "I could get one of these":

"Wow, I could take some good shots with that!"

So inside my head is going a bit like this at the moment:

Clothes and handbag?

Macro lens?

Clothes and handbag!

No, the macro lens!



So, who's going to win?

Clothes.... that bag is cute!

I do love the bag, but I prefer something to play with, nowadays, so I would probably go for the lens - if I knew what to do with it, anyway! Will you have more money for your birthday? How long do you have to wait? ;0)

I would pretty much always go with the geeky one, though I'd love to be able to go with the clothes. My sister recently got me interested in clothes again; unfortunately the taxman is not going to allow me to investigate this further!

Don't you just love that split personality?!!

I can't help you decide, it's just as hard for me :)

I also love "Lark Rise to Candleford" though I don't do the science.
However, I would choose the lens because it will outlive the fashion, any day!

I love that purse! I'm for the yummy mummy AND the geek. Get one item now and the next one in a month...or two! Ahhh, why can't we have it all????

Love both choices, Radley Bags are fab (if a tad overpriced, though) - Only you will know what you would really, really covet WM! Good luck with the choice!

For fab, reasonably priced, totally handmade leather bags, try my 'Bag Lady', Karina Hesketh, This is not an advert, it is a personal recommendation, and you might still be able to afford the camera bits and pieces...

Chocolate. What about a huge amount of delicious chocolate, spread over the year?

Lens would win!


I have read some of your posts and would like to revisit.

If you like reading short stories from an Indian writer, then a visit to my blogs would be an interesting one for you.

Inner geek every step of the way. I am not a clothes person though. Geekiness wins for me every time.

Well the lens looks but wouldn't I need a different camera? Like to coat thingey a lot, need something to cover bum. Choices choices!

Dusty Spider said...
