Chapter Two: It's not the end of the world

Good friends, good food, good music and really good TV

My mum and I are SAT IN THE GARDEN. Yep, that’s right. The weather is officially that lovely. There’s not a cloud in the sky. I’m not even just being British. It’s proper summery. I’m wearing a dress and I’m not even the slightest bit chilly. 

As you can imagine having read my last post, the week got off to a shaky start. Monday was super stressful and honestly, I was not in a good state of mind. However, I took a day to pull myself together and things generally went onwards and upwards from there.

The week whizzed by. Before I knew it, I was curled up in bed on Friday night binge watching Netflix like I’d never been to work. Saturday was a lovely day. I got up early and rolled to my fitness class as per. Then I ate lots and napped. One of the ladies from work hosted a BBQ in the afternoon. The food was amazing, the weather was perfect and it was so good to spend time with the brilliant people I work with, without having to work. I had to rush off unfortunately, so I’m hoping there are more BBQs like it on the horizon.

Saturday night I headed to Bar Soho in London with Dave to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The music in the bar was excellent. I highly recommend it. The drinks were expensive and it was so ridiculously warm that on any other occasion I would have spent the night grumbling. Had the music not been so good there would have been no hope, but I was excited to see and meet all the people there and I had such a good time that I danced without a care in the world.

Sunday was spent being happily lazy with the friends who had let us crash for the night. We watched a few hilarious episodes of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ which I’d never seen before and now intend to see more of. We put a film on and we cooked a roast dinner. I say we, Dave and I bought the ingredients and our hosts cooked. It was a delicious roast and we definitely owe them one.

When I got home yesterday evening, we had family over and everyone sat was out the in the garden chatting and drinking. We stayed there while the sun went down, time flew and before I knew it, it was time for bed; hence the lack of blog post. So, all that stuff I said about consistency and posting every Sunday without fail? Went out the window didn’t it.

I’ve downloaded Duolingo and I’m learning Italian! Dave’s doing the same; we’re using our competitive spirits to our advantage. So, right now I’m off to do the next lesson or two. One of my best friends has been living in Dubai for the past year and is finally home, so I’m hoping maybe I’ll see her later. If not, I’ll settle for another evening in the garden. This time with my book for company.
