Friendships and Photobooths

May 17, 2014

As I said, when Laia came to visit we spent a lot of time in photobooths…!

This past week or so has been rough. I’m not going to go into any details, but sometimes days just don’t work out how you expect them to, and life likes to throw a few surprises at you – and not the good kind. I’m so ready for this weekend. Thankfully it’s filled with friends and good food – and hopefully a bit of DIY. I don’t know what’s happening lately but we seem to be destructing our flat one room at a time. First the kitchen – which I’m kind of happy about, because now it’s so lovely and bright – next the floorboards in our lounge, which have decided to raise up against each other, and will no doubt not be cheap to fix. Finally last week, when I hung up a shirt in our wardrobe, the entire rail collapsed. Our wardrobe has (had…) a built in rail that’s drilled into the wall and is currently a gigantic pile of clothes, with a few shoes trapped underneath. I rescued some of the most fragile, but who knows what’s happening to the poor shoes I’ve left buried under the weight of all our winter coats. A word of warning people: Empty your wardrobe at the first sign of sunshine, and do not leave every single heavy coat you own hanging up for longer than it needs to. Sigh.

So let’s hope we can get that rail up today, before heading over to a friends for dinner. I’ve heard rumours of Mexican food. Yay! And then tomorrow, a BBQ. The first BBQ of the year! I absolutely love going round to our friends Vicky and Tugs – they have a homemade BBQ (!!!) and fields of green grass. It’s the best place to be in the summer. Bliss.

What are your plans for the weekend?
Is your house falling apart, too?

    Your weekend plans sound lovely. I love the pictures.
    My plans are to be lazy. So far, so good. And as for the house my apartment is ok, my mom’s house is falling apart. I was happy to move out of there.

    Ha, my house is definitely falling apart! The plaster is literally falling off of the walls outside so we need to re-plaster and re-paint the entire house. My wardrobe consists of a foot long rod which constantly falls down (most of my clothes have to hang on the backs of the doors) and we reeeeally need to get the mould situation in the bathroom sorted. Also, the bath taps don’t work. Oh and we need to clear the gutters before they collapse under two years worth of moss. Owning your own place is scary!

      Ugh, it’s so much effort! We’re still renting but know that we need to fix the things that we have broken…
