Home now from a very lovely meal at Nobu Shoreditch- we had a little bit of sumthin' sumthin' from the menu, but my belly feels like we had everything everything. The relief when I finally got to undo my top button at home, HOOOWEE. Now it's time for a hot shower, a cuddle with the cat, and an early night! x
WHAT. IS. THIS. WEATHER?! 😡⚡️Mother Nature, do we need to stage an intervention? It felt dark and cold this morning and I didn't want to leave my warm bed and wait hang on, this is August, right? I haven't accidentally slept straight through to Autumn? (I mean, possible) on the upside I'm wearing my new boots, we have dinner reservations at a fancy pants restaurant later and we're midway through the week. 👍🏼
Morning! I woke up extra early this morning to make sure I got to a doctor's appointment on time. However...not only was I on time, I was more than half an hour early- so I took a little Insta Story tour around the area. In my haste to get out the house on time, I didn't bother sorting my hair out- it can only be described as 1980s Bon Jovi 🙄 Bloody hell, thank god it's Friday eh?
I'm off work this week- an unplanned break, but ohmygod it's been WONDERFUL. Quiet cups of tea in the morning, sunshine through the windows, appreciating the quiet- as a homebody, it's heavenly. I had friends over earlier- we ate, we laughed, we drank tea. This is when I feel my best- my home, my friends ❤️ Slow l-i-v-i-n 😉
I usually drag my feet when it comes to something like a doctor's appointment but having to come here regularly doesn't bother me- it's so pretty and quintessentially London. I love the shops, old and new- there's a shop for cleaning brass instruments, another making fancy candles, whisky and old Italian delis and cafes. Streets like this, make me remember why I love this place ❤️(and also appreciative that no one bats an eyelid when you walk down the street clutching your trousers up when the zip breaks)
When you're making the most of the sunshine outside by practicing with your new camera when suddenly the sky rumbles with thunder and it POURS down! So much for practice. On the upside, I'm cosied indoors with tea, Gilmore Girl reruns and sleepy cats so there's that 🙂
16 years I've lived here and I'm still finding myself in new places. I'm in a new website tunnel so it's a bit crickets on the Awkward Blog at the mo'- bare with...bare with...bare with (anyone else a Miranda fan?) But okay, cool, got a tea in one hand, a biscuit in the other and my camera in my bag ready to go!
