Ahoy there, Sailors!
So it’s been a busy summer here in London Town and I endeavoured to enjoy as much of the sunshine as possible. Making sure to wear the highest factor sun protection and a hat at all times, Natch. Here is a quick run down of some of things I’ve pondering over my Summer break…I guess it’s welcome back, bitches! What have I missed?
Second hand clothes whore
I’ve always been a bit of a shopping addict and I especially love whittling down the hours rummaging through people’s throw always hoping to find a “diamond in the rough” as it were. When I do, I make sure to wear it to death. This is especially true of shoes as I am very heavy footed for such a tiny person. My current obsession is blazers and Afghan coats. I can’t get enough of them. BRING THEM TO ME.
I’ve suddenly redeveloped my eBay habit as well. It’s terrible, especially as now there is an app and I get alerts. Am now going to investigate reselling as I seriously need to declutter my “petite” London flat. I’ll make sure to let you all know when I post anything. I discovered a abandoned mannequin outside the flat not to long ago so I’m going to put it to use*
I always try to be honest about mental health and this year has been a bit of a roller-coaster. By roller coaster, I mean having my heart ripped out and shattered several times. My main affliction currently being depression and apathy. I’m making strides in combating this and being more proactive and I am happy to say it’s doing some good. I have a habit of catastraphising things, which is a common trait in us anxious peeps and I am slowly learning to just take it one day at a time. Not everything that can, does go wrong.
That being said, it currently feels like it is, but again, everything is temporary and it will pass….one hopes.
Cleaning. It’s fucking shit.
House work is wank. I don’t care what anyone else says. Yet, despite its horrors, I am trying to do as much of it as I can but I’m seriously tempted to obtain a cleaner. I mean, technically that would mean my laziness and obtaining of happiness is also supporting the economy, right? That’s surely a positive? Does anyone else have a cleaner? Is it worth the expense?
Soup maker and sobriety
I’ve decided that I need to save money. By decided, I mean that I have no actual choice on the matter and needs must. Therefore, I have made the decision to stop drinking and socialising as much. It’s as much for my health as it is for my bank balance. To fill the time I’ve also decided to stop putting Deliveroo’s kids through college and proactively begin to make shopping lists and meal plans and **GASP** Brought a mother fucking soup maker.
It’s a game changer people. I got the one that sautés the onions etc before you, erm…“Soup” in a flash sale on amazon. I’ve honestly discovered a new world of easy food choices AND I can just shove any veg that needs eating and et voila! Sooooup. #grateful I’ve also discovered I make a sensual lentil salad. Recipes welcomed! Post links below.
Sweep stakes open on how long it takes for this health kick to end at the bottom of a bargain bucket and bottle of processco
