Ah, August


...what a fabulous month you've been! Sociable yet chilled, food-filled, park-based and most importantly: sunny & bright :)

Reading: I'm one chapter from finishing Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. It's excellent, quite easily the best read of the year so far.

Watching: BoJack Horseman season 3 (it got reeeally dark); Star Trek Enterprise (we're onto season 4 which pales in comparison to seasons 2 and 3); Great British Bake Off (it's back!); and in honor of Gene Wilder, See no evil, Hear no evil.

Eating: a vegetarian diet. Mitch and I decided to give vegetarianism a try for a while. We really don't eat that much meat to be honest, and when we do, it's mostly when we go out. At the risk of sounding defeatist, I shall be breaking the veggie diet when we go to Sicily for a week (I have to try the local cuisine after all, that's a big part of a holiday for me!).

Drinking: fresh mint and ginger tea.

Making: a dress (surprise, surprise) from some lovely chambray I bought at the Knitting & Stitching Show a million years ago.

Wearing: sundresses! And sandals! And sunglasses!

Sleeping: very well indeed thanks to our brand new mattress (such an adult).

Looking forward to: our aforementioned week long trip to Sicily (sooo excited!)

Feeling: very much contented living in Peckham and rather smug too particularly when friends come to the area for the first time and we get to show them around. A little burnt out - work hasn't really slowed the pace since I started in June. Incredulous - we can't possibly be two thirds of the way through 2016??!!

  1. Feels like the year of death aka 2016 is almost over. Feels like a lot has happened but seeing as I saw Christmas stuff out already (made me ill) it feels like everyone wants 2016 to end??

    Aha! You gotta eat meat in Italy, you cannot avoid it!!
