I can't believe it has been 2 months since my last post! I am going to lay the blame for this firmly at the door of the day job. So this post is going to be a mega update (using the word mega makes even the most mundane of words sound interesting!).
M and I are still looking for flats, we have even had some viewings but only one has caught our eye and sadly someone beat us to it. We have decided that due to the current renting market we can't be too fussy so a garden is now a bonus, as is ground floor.
We are being realistic and we don't think we will move before Christmas, so in the mean time I am trying desperately to de-clutter to make extra space. I have reluctantly given lots of my books to the charity shop, there is only so long a book can remain on the shelf with the vain hope that one day I will read it.
I hope to start concentrating on enjoying the cooler seasons, I want to make soups on a regular basis and I am watching River Cottage to get inspiration for winter comfort food.
I have been ill recently and I had to change my diet to plain food (not easy for me) so cooking has not been as enjoyable as it usually is.
M and I went on a short break to Edinburgh. The first time I had been on a plane in 11 years, the last time being a family holiday to Spain when I was 18.
Yesterday we went to Comicon, it was a great day out and we even dressed up. M went as Christopher Eccleston's Doctor Who and I went as Amy Pond (this did involve me colouring my hair red). We saw all manor of costumes, most of which I had no idea who they were but it was an experience.
I am still reading Reaper Man and enjoying it. I have been getting back into Bjork again and the Velvet Underground.
Well hopefully it will not be another 2 months before I write again.
