    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Thanks, lne! We only managed to get one of the fillings done in the end, because it was so massive it took the whole hour to do, so l have to go back for the rest in January. l have a new dentist (my first ever female dentist!) who is very gentle though, & doesn't talk at me all the way through like the last one did. So today's experience was actually ok, in fact l almost dozed off at one point!

    l got the rest of my shopping done on the way home, so l'm feeling very relaxed now. l might even put my feet up & watch a Christmas movie this afternoon...

    Wearing Amouage Opus V today.

    Since I'm still on FMLA (family medical leave) I've been binge watching Eternal Love (Chinese: 三生三世十里桃花; pinyin: San Sheng San Shi Shi Li Tao Hua), also known as Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms, is a 2017 Chinese television series starring Yang Mi and Mark Chao. It is based on the xianxia novel of the same name (released as To the Sky Kingdom in English) by Tang Qi. The series was broadcast on Zhejiang TV and Dragon TV from 30 January to 1 March 2017. After watching Ashes of Love (Chinese: 香蜜沉沉烬如霜), a 2018 Chinese television series based on the novel Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost by Dian Xian. It stars Yang Zi and Deng Lun in the lead roles.

    I picked up a bit of Mandarin along the way.
