I had just the loveliest day out with Nic today. It wasn’t a specific Christmas trip, but it did feel very seasonal as we saw the lights and Covent Garden’s big tree up! We had tapas, and mulled wine and had a really really nice day out together.
Completely cleaning and sorting our drinks area has made me very excited for Christmas. It’s going to come around so fast as I’m off to Florida in a couple weeks and then when I’m back it’s onto two weeks until Christmas! I’m starting to think about doing all my shopping which I’ve hardly started yet…Continue reading “19/11/21 – The C Word”
Popped to Beckenham today to see two lovely friends and their wee ones. We waved at trains and nattered whilst meandering around the part. It was just lovely and all very Autumnal, a lovely excuse to get out of the house.
My Nico is finally back in London. For the first time in three weeks were back in our London house together with no building work. Woo hoo!
I finally left the house! After three days inside sorting the house out and cleaning I finally left to go get dinner with Corinne this evening. We ate lots of fun and interesting food, and I even had a lovely glass of vermouth at the end. But most importantly I had a wonderful catch upContinue reading “16/11/21 – Corinne and tapas”
Day four of sorting out the house and I pretty much just have the kitchen to go! Finally got the TV back set up which I’m pleased by as it was lovely to relax and watch a movie this evening. And Nic is back on Wednesday woooooo!
I’m slowly winning against the house. Today I managed to finish the bedroom, the bathroom, the study, a massive chunk of the spare bedroom and a little bit of the kitchen done. The flowers on the table were brought round by our wonderful neighbors. She saw I was a bit overwhelmed yesterday so dropped themContinue reading “14/11/21 – Kindness of neighbors”
I spent a chunk of today sorting and cleaning the house, and this included giving a couple of the plants a good shower as they were so covered in dust. The bedroom is now completely sorted and my little sanctuary compared to the rest of the house… But that’s okay, I’ll get there!
After one last day out of the house (having a lovely day with my friends and meeting some nice horses) I’m finally back home. It’s strange as all our belongings are dirty and in the wrong places so it’ll take a few days to get everything back to normal and feeling happy again.
So the house wasn’t quite ready after all, so I have another cheeky night on Mariana’s sofa whilst they finish off the last bits. I’m really hoping my kitchen doesn’t look like this by the time I come home tomorrow! Fingers crossed…
