Life lately, avoiding the mess
Our house looks a lit like this at the moment. We’ve been living life in the kitchen and our bedroom, with the odd afternoon in the study, and I’m missing my lounge and dining room! We’ve been eating on a fold-up camping table. It will be so worth it in the end, though. Trout left me for Switzerland a few days ago, but he gets back this evening (yay!) and for once I’ve actually made the most of this time to myself! Usually I have all these plans and just end up being a crazy cat lady, scrolling through Instagram. Not going to lie, there was some (quite a bit) of scrolling – but plenty of other good things, too.
Dinner in bed, in my pyjamas, catching up on YouTube videos with Ras, and a love letter left from Trout *heart emoji face*.
I essentially spent a lot of time in bed with Ras. And sweets.
Yesterday I took the train to Hastings for the day. I haven’t been for such a long time, maybe 15 years, so I thought I’d pop down for a catch up. I arrived around 1ish and headed straight to the True Crime Museum – I was so happy when I spotted it on a map a few hours before I left! It was really good – possibly even better than the Black Museum in London. Maybe. I had planned on going to the Jerwood Gallery too, but ran out of time. Saving that for my next visit!
Interview snippets with a few of my favs.
After the museum, and a wander through town, I met up with my parents and the dogs, and it was one of the best afternoons I’ve had in a long time. Spending time with my family is so important to me, and I try to see them at least once a month. We had some lunch on the seafront (well, I had a belated lunch at 3pm and my parents had tea & cake and mostly tried to stop the dogs knocking everything over), walked through the Old Town and then headed down to the shore to introduce the boys to the sea. It was their first time and they were terrified. Of the stones, the people, the seagulls, the sea. They did enjoy an off-lead runaround, which didn’t last long after they ate someone’s sandwiches. Sorry about that!
And finally, when you wake up alone on a Sunday morning, make sure you have a good breakfast to look forward to. Hope you’ve had a great start to the week!
