".. for 8 months, no more than that, a year, I sat in a cafe, drank coffee and wrote nonsense in a journal; then suddenly it was not nonsense .."
I'm Mae. I'm 25.
Home is the north west of England.
Currently in London.
This started in Paris.
I don't know where it will end :)
Escaping the city
The other weekend we had a wonderful weekend with all the extended family. I think it’s the first time we had so many of them all together (there’s usually always someone missing). And we’re in what will be a very short period where all the grand kids are grown up, but there are no great grand kids yet. Carl met everyone too! The house we rented out had a gorgeous heated pool and so much communal space, it really was just a dream. We drove up from London with cousins on Friday night and spend the whole weekend just catching up, ligging out, having pool fights and playing articulate. And there were some very un PC dinner table conversations..!!
The pool was a dream. I love the feel of Spas so to effectively have a private one was heaven.
My Oma (grandma) used to fill this jewelry box with sweets and toys when we came to visit, and we’d sit in her bed in the morning and find the sweets while she used the little toys to act out stories <3
We were there to celebrate my wonderful Opa’s 89th birthday :)
Good stuff that happened at the end of 2013
We discovered a climbing wall in London that does tea in proper mugs. For 3 hours we could have been in the North of England for all we knew. It was bliss.
We got zoo membership!! We live near enough that a weekend stroll there is very feasible, and it feels great to know we can wander in anytime.
We had a beautiful first Christmas tree in our new flat. Multicolour glory :)
My best girl came to visit and brought the perfect first special bauble for said tree.
I had pillowcase overspill from my stocking on Christmas morning which is always a good sign.
Which is all a long winded way of saying I’ve just looked though all the photos on my phone from this year (which google handily seem to put everywhere now for me to access and browse) and I have so many that will just end up in a lost folder on my laptop, so tumblr from now on, in an effort to record some memories, you’re getting them.
