For a couple of days, I had been working on a major project, spending long hours over the weekend even into the night editing a comprehensive document, With last Tuesday afternoon as the deadline, I quickly did the final editing of my document before attempting to attach it to an apologetic reply mail around 4:30 pm.

But when I searched for the supposedly saved document, it was nowhere to be found ! not even in folders where it should not be. It had simply vanished without a trace. I was gutted! Panic set in, and even after my evening routine, I could not go to sleep before I had solved my problem. So eventually I picked myself up, dusted myself off and set out to start all over again  – from scratch!  It’s amazing how much short term information the brain can store, because as I sat down to edit a new document, so many elements of what had been in the first one came back to me. And what originally had taken me 10-12 hours or more to do, finally was re-written in less than 6 in a slightly modified but possibly even better version. I was dead sure that I had created a full backup document (just in case) before saving my new masterpiece and mailing it successfully.

It’s wonderful how a good night’s sleep can heal at least minor scars.  And this morning I got out of bed with a song in my heart, happy that I am finally able to enjoy sharing this outfit, which I had all intentions of sharing yesterday.  The stress I was under reminds me of the anxiety I felt when doing this shoot.  I wanted to shoot this outfit at an office building to reflect the official feel to it. We were given 45 minutes to take our photos, but just as we had begun to set up we were told to be finished in just 15 minutes! Luckily we did just fine.

This outfit is typical of what I would wear to official meetings on a cold Nairobi day, Then maybe lose the coat revealing the crop top for a quick evening warm up drink.
