So of late I’ve had a few adventures, and I’m currently planning some more. Woo hoo! I really want to go to Iceland towards the end of the year. I’m not particularly sure why this has suddenly occurred to me, but flights are cheap and I’ve got nothing better to do and I’ve also heard that the Northern Lights are pretty spectacular this year and so if it’s ‘the season’ and I’m really lucky I might be able to catch a glimpse of them! Thereby ticking pretty much the only really important thing off my bucket list. Score!
So young, yet so little ambition.
I just had my birthday and we went to this great place in Soho (Boheme Kitchen and Bar) and I had probably the biggest Chicken Club ever and probably the most delicious Mississippi Mud Pie ever. I shared the latter with my sister. Okay, so it was my first ever Mississippi Mud Pie, but again it is something I’ve always wanted to try and my god, I was right. It was a bit like perfection on a plate. With a side of perfection in a mini jug.
What else? I love the Royal Family and so the jubilee was a total treat this weekend. I headed up north to visit a friend from uni who made some superb cakes and then got to see my Grandparents! It was wondrous.
Work is easing off now and so I’m honestly going to try to do this, whatever this is, more often.
Has anyone read the Scott Pilgrim vs The World graphic novels? I got some vouchers (for mon anniversaire) and cracked and bought a couple. They’re brilliant. Better than the film and better than the other book I’m currently reading: Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert.
Okay, so better isn’t fair, they’re very different. I just know that whilst I whipped through one in peals of laughter in about half an hour, maybe an hour, the other has me trapped, going over the same paragraph again and again so the meaning actually sticks in my head.
But you should totally read both.
I’m probably going to find the urge to write something about my wee trip to Manhattan earlier in the year soon. Just a heads up.
