Project 2020: Week #4

22 January 2020 Alone again today. Our boy went to school and my husband to work. Instead of spending the time quietly at home, I downloaded an audio tour app on my phone and headed out to traipse around London's West End theatre district. It was great fun! Ian McKellen guided me through narrow streets... Continue Reading →

Project 2020: Week #3

15 January 2020 Today a station billboard asked me where I felt at home. I was rushing and didn't see the gigantic thing. The doors of this particular train to our neighbourhood can close any minute and you never know when your minute is up. I sat down on the nearest seat when we reached... Continue Reading →

The hairdresser I didn’t know I needed

It was a phone app that led me to her. It collected information on hairdressers, beauty salons, nail parlours in the neighbourhood and rated their service. Y's name popped up and customers seemed to like her. I took the plunge, zapped over some money and booked the appointment. "Hello sweetie," she cheerfully greeted me on... Continue Reading →

Waiting for the show to start

I love that moment just before the curtain opens. We went to our first West End show to celebrate our coming anniversary this week. The seats were in the nosebleeds, but I didn’t care. We had a clear view of the stage all up in lights. And we were there as a family. The show... Continue Reading →

An invitation to tea

Su from Zimmerbitch has invited us all to a virtual tea party. This is my kettle. I've just turned it on and am waiting for the water to boil! I do know the famous saying, but I can wait. Looking forward to sharing a hot cuppa with you all. See here to participate!

Every day life

It's not all about the fancy dinners at posh restaurants. Can't complain. I'm thankful we have food on the table every night and a warm place to sleep. Plus Yorkshire puddings are the best! Apologies for the random food shot. It was the closest image of every day, ordinary, life I could find. Another would... Continue Reading →

Project 2020: Week #2

8 January 2020 Spotted at a trendy little coffee shop in Kingston upon Thames. They looked like three creatives working hard in their natural environment. Made me smile. I don't know why. 9 January 2020 Our son went to school. His father went to work. It was just me at home today. I visited the... Continue Reading →

At the Mary Quant Exhibition

Me: Come on. Let's not waste today. Let's get out of the house. Let's go and see something different. Him: But mum, I just want to stay home watching YouTube videos and playing computer games. Me: Nope. Not an option. My husband bought me a membership to the Victoria and Albert Museum last Christmas. It... Continue Reading →
