I’ve been trying to be more organised in my life these days, yet the days just keep getting away from me and I don’t get anything done that I wanted to. I have ticked a few things off my list though, finally finding the hanging planter of my dreams, trying new recipes, organising kitchen shelves and cabinets, and lots of kitty snuggles.I made Deliciously Ella’s superfood bread for the first time from her cookbook. I had some slight issues in that I overcooked it because I thought it wasn’t done, but it still tasted alright. Definitely not the consistency of bread, or even a cakey bread, but I’ll stick with it for a while. I topped it with cream cheese, salmon and my moms homemade pepper jelly, and it was a winning combo.
Adam also came home on Wednesday after being in Greece for a week. It was nice to have the house to myself, but I was pretty excited for him to be back. The cats have predictably been acting like I’m chopped liver and been hanging all over Adam.Saturday Adam and I went to London for the day to just mooch around. We bought a railcard that gets us 1/3 off if we travel together, so hopefully more day trips will be on the cards. We went into some (expensive) interior shops and put together our dream decor, and went to Liberty of London for the first time. Halfway through the day we met our friends at Bodean’s and had delicious BBQ, go there if you haven’t been yet, it’s good. We also went to the Science museum to see a photography exhibit called Revelations, and it shows early photographs and the impact photography has had on what we’ve learned about our environment. The exhibit is £8 a person which I think is a bit much as we were in and out in less than an hour after reading everything, but with our railcard we got two for one tickets so completely worth it.
After the museum we were a bit lost on what to do, so we walked through Hyde park to catch a tube back, and by the time we got to Kings Cross only had about 20 minutes until our train. A few people thought we were crazy for just going to London for the day, but it’s easier for us since Jack is diabetic and needs a shot twice a day. This way we can give the fluffy one his injections before leaving and when we get back. Not to mention there’s not the added cost of a hotel.
Saturday night when we got back we had a few friends over for an impromptu fire. I got the sparklers out and tried some long exposure light trail photos, and can’t wait to show you the good few that I got. I want to make shapes in the dark all the time now, our neighbours are going to think I’m nuts if they see me dancing around in the back garden with my iPhone light.
Sunday I was lazy but did manage to organise the kitchen a bit and make sweet potato brownies, which are not the best thing I’ve ever eaten, so I’m going to have to tweak the recipe a bit I think.
What are your favourite home shops in London that we can check out next time?
