If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently visited Amsterdam and Florence, which was my sort of let's-see-if-escaping-reality-for-awhile-helps-at-all caper. Anyway, it kind of did and it kind of did not, but on the bright side, I had plenty to distract me and took a lot of photos, and those are good things :) So, photos are to come in future posts with which I will no doubt bore you over an extended period of time!
In other news, there isn't much other news, but I just wanted to check in as it has been awhile since I last put in an appearance here. Randomly: it's peony season, so I treated myself to a bunch over the weekend and have photographed them relentlessly ever since as they are just so beautiful; the Fur Kid has been out of sorts, which worried me a lot, but she is getting back to normal so I am hoping it was just a case of her being sensitive to change, what with being cat-sat (?) by my brother while I was away and all; it has been kind of nice to go back to work and catch up with my friends, and also dress up in something other than jeans, jumpers and boots; the warm weather has arrived, hooray! and Christmas is coming, so I am scouting around for a small tree and some decorations for the apartment to try to get into the Christmas spirit (as opposed to spirits, hah) this year; and I am totally on the brink of buying a new dining table and chairs because Pinterest and cooking shows and cookbooks make me want to host stylish soirees, only we all know that "stylish" will be out of reach (perhaps I might end up on a Pinterest Fail blog of some sort?) and "soiree" is way too sophisticated a word for the disaster that will inevitably ensue :D But hey, at least my
guinea pigs guests will have somewhere nice to sit, hehe.
