Week 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49 and 50 in pictures and words

So I’ve let myself down with this blogging malarky. I’ve let life get on top of me and neglected a pastime that I used to love. The thing with this ‘The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected’ thing that I challenged myself to do at the beginning of 2013, is that it requires energy and […]

Week 40: The good, the bad and the unexpected (The caffeine edition)

Monday: The Good Meeting my lovely South African friend after work for an evening coffee. If I had my way I’d keep coffee shops and bookshops open until at least 10pm. Who needs a pub booth, when you can have a warm, chocolate leather armchair? The Bad Having a horrible day. Sometimes bosses are a […]

Week 38: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good The above. Treating myself to a gorgeous swedish pastry on a cold and wet September morning. The Bad Feeling guilty for not looking after Gray C better. I’ve been too busy being busy to stop and give my pet bunny some attention. So I’m making her a cardboard castle and vowing to […]

Week 37: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Making it to the Shakespeare and Company Gatsby celebration despite the pouring rain. And it was amazing. I cannot wait to read Sarah Churchwell’s Careless People now, she read some great snippets from her book and it sounded incredible. Afterwards they handed out free gin based twenties style cocktails and a jazz […]

Week 36: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Spending birthday money on some new, clean notebooks. Nothing like a blank canvas to make the ink flow. The Bad The amount of cake we had left over from the wedding, I took a massive block with me to work and ate most of it. Oh and Seamus Heaney died. May this […]

Week 35: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good It’s my gorgeous niece’s (little Soph) first birthday today! So despite being exhausted from getting back from Spain in the early hours of the morning, we all went up to london for a lovely day in the bank holiday sun. The Bad Wedding disasters. With just a week to go, we discovered […]

Week 34: The good, the bad and the unexpected – THE HOLIDAY EDITION

Monday: The Good We arrived on Sunday at our villa mid afternoon to a hearty and warm welcome from the couple who own it. They showed us around and after chatting about the events in Sitges this week, we were eventually left to our own devices. An afternoon full of sunbathing and an evening devoted to […]

Week 33: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Finding solace in Starter for Ten. Couldn’t have put it better myself. The Bad Coming home after a long swim only to discover more wedding drama. Why is life never straightforward? My sister’s fiance’s so-called friend, who offered to film my sister’s wedding, announced –  with 2 weeks to go – that […]

Week 32: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Getting to work early and starting the day with a creamy coffee. The Bad The rain. Getting absolutely soaked in a monsoon-like downpour, I could have stood in the shower fully clothed and been drier. My shoes broke, my bag got soaked and all my foundation ran all over my white blazer. […]

Week 31: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good The fact that the need for modesty bags to cover dirty magazines has finally been recognised. Couldn’t agree more, no one wants to be flashed when they’ve innocently popped to the co-operative for a bunch of bananas and some rice cakes. The Bad Walking all the way to Topshop to collect my […]
