A very important milestone for a new mother
Not only was I a witness as two of my great friends officially tied-the-knot at City Hall in HK, but I then went out for a celebratory lunch with them to a fancy restaurant with an amazing view and champagne and menus and everything. Something I haven't done in I can't even remember how long.
To top off this superb day, I, wait for it, this is the best bit...
I... I wore a belt!!
Exciting, I know.
I love a belt. The waist-belt variety in particular. And a waist is something I haven't had in 12 months. 12 bloody months of wearing a variety of sacks in all shades of grey and black and boring. But now that the baby is out, the bump is gone and the residual flab is well, still there, I can once again don the belt.
I may not be able to breathe while wearing it. But who needs to breathe, really. It's a detail I'm willing to overlook.
Because people, the belt, is back.
