Everything else

Welcome to the slightly grey side

I’ve been resisting for a long time, but the time has now come. I am the owner of an iPhone, and not any iPhone, but the 6 in gold. What’s happened to me? This week, my old phone has really annoyed me. Once again, it was crashing and the screen was freezing all the time. When I tried to answer a call and the app was too slow and wasn’t sliding to answer, I thought I was going to lose my mind. So, I contacted Vodafone. Again. See, almost as soon as I was up for an upgrade, I started the process to get a new phone and contract. You need to go to the website, check that you’re eligible, then click to request an upgrade, which then takes you to a short email form where you tell them what you want. I did this on the 15th. I received an email telling me I would be contacted within 48 hours, so I carried on with my life as usual. On the 20th, I realised …

Joyful home

I don’t know what’s going on these days, but I keep forgetting to post on the blog! I am so focused on everything else that when I remember about it, it’s usually too late at night and I’m too tired to even lift a finger. They say when you miss posts to just write a new one like nothing happened, so it doesn’t seem like you’re apologising or something, but I’m not entirely sure that’s the way to go. If you have a schedule (supposedly), and you miss it, then surely you need to let your readers know what’s going on, right? As you know, I’m doing Whole30 (I’m on day 17, yay!) and I both love it and hate it. I love it because it’s true I’m feeling better overall. I don’t feel bloated after eating my meals and I believe I might have dropped a size or so. I hate it because it involves a lot of planning, and I’m terrible at that. Normally, if I find myself with an empty fridge, I …

Marbles

I’m not really sure if I’m getting old or if I’m simply losing my mind at a slow by steady pace. Although it is probably the latter, I think I’m going to tell you so you can judge for yourself. A few days ago, I was having dinner with my brother. Having set the table, and with the food already served, I went to the kitchen to grab a last-minute item, when my brother asked me to also bring ketchup. I opened the fridge, grabbed the ketchup, and saw some beers there he had bought earlier that same week. I asked him if I could have one of his beers and as I was finishing the question, I said out loud: Ah, no, I already have wine, true! and turned to see my brother looking at my with an expression that could only mean I’m a bit crazy (or that I have a problem with alcohol). On the table, there were the two glasses of wine we had just served. On that same evening, I …

Pre-weekend

Haven’t you heard? It’s Bank Holiday weekend! Get ready for three days of rest. Just make sure you bring your sunglasses, and your umbrella, just in case… Because it always rains on Bank Holiday weekend. I haven’t checked the weather forecast yet, but that’s usually the case in London. This week has been a bit tough. I had a client event which has been harder than I expected, mostly because we finished late, and because it was in two floors of a pub, which meant I spent most of my evening running up and down the stairs. By the end of the night, I was very tired (I left at 11pm, but it was still packed!) and I was so focused on not losing work’s camera, that I actually forgot my cardigan. Fail! I only noticed the following morning, when I wanted to wear it and I couldn’t find it. Luckily, a colleague had found it and brought it to me in the morning, as lost property, not knowing it was actually mine! Score! I …
