I got a new toy (that’s a lie, I got a couple new ones) and what better day to start playing around with it than a Friday afternoon with the full sun blazing down?
I am not quite sure where I am taking this, but I will experiment a little and let the creative juices flow a little.
I’ve been contemplating writing about the last book I read, but every time I am thinking about what to say and how to say it I feel like I am not going to be able to do it justice. It made me laugh and cry and everything in between, so here is my best crack at it, hoping that someone else will pick it up.
We’re in the middle of getting a lot of little things done and sorted, such as vaccinations and our packing list. We brainstormed what we knew from previous trips backpacking and hiking, got our friends’ packing list sent over and researched a little. I think most of it is common sense, trying to go minimalist and top that off with a few luxury items that one doesn’t really need but would make things so much more fun!
It’s become a little tradition that on Sundays, my husband and I go to our nearby park, get a cup of coffee and go for a walk. We talk about various things, do a bit of people and dog watching and generally just enjoy the fresh air.
One of today’s musings was about house prices in London. After our travels to south east Asia, we’re thinking of where to come back to and whether we’re going to buy a house in the UK, a.k.a. London or surroundings.
What do you do when your chopping boards are a bit grim and need replacing? You make a side table, naturally.
It all started with a vision. A vision to create something beautiful and avoid going to the recycling station. I was envisioning a win-win scenario whereby I could let flow my creative juices, make something out of, let face it, junk and save the environment by not throwing perfectly good wooden IKEA chopping boards away.
It has been quite a while since I shared an update of our house renovations. The last time I wrote about what we got up to we started with the cement floor in the cellar. Since then, my parents have removed an asbestos pipe and put in a new waste water pipe, removed a concrete pillar and replaced it with a wooden pillar, added a water connection and continued with the concrete floor until the beginning of the staircase to the upper floor.
