I should probably bother with make-up more often. I don't look half bad here (except for the dark circles under my eyes - nothing seems to hide those suckers). This photo is a total exercise in narcissism - it's rare that I like a photo of me. Also, taking a decent self-portrait - for me - is tricky. I like this one, though.
Hi, I'm Madeleine.
Otherwise known as Mad, or Mads.... but never Maddy. I'm all for shortening my mouthful of a name, but let's do it properly and keep it to just one syllable, okay?
I thought that after a year and a half (or thereabouts) of having this blog, I might as well start using my proper name instead of my boring initials. It seems like the right time.
Hardly an earth-shattering revelation for some of you, I know, but our little home is recovering from a housewarming last night. I'm feeling the need to take things easy today.
Ciao for now.
