Where I live

Today was my scheduled day off (rather than my “ring in sick” days off previously) and luckily I was feeling so much better.  Not 100% but defo getting there; I’m even looking forward to returning to work tomorrow.

As I’ve barely left the house since Friday night, today I had to get out.  The perfect excuse: to shop for our trip to South East Asia (which is less than 2 weeks away; ahhh!).  I haven’t done a good shop for summer clothes for years, and today one (Tom) could argue that I made up for it.  I may have bought 5 dresses, and 2 tops; I don’t think I’ve ever bought so much in one trip.  En route to the shops I decided to take a few snaps of the inner city area where I live to share with you.

I have a love-hate relationship with our area.  On the one hand, it’s great living within walking distance of most places and friends.  And I really appreciate the street art,

And the architecture.

But I’m not a fan of how rough it is, and that many communal areas become ruined,

Such as this park and green area (difficult to see from the picture).  It’s not unusual to find used needles, cans of beer etc. around here.

However, our house is wonderful and I’ve grown incredibly fond of this little view from our kitchen window, where I always stand to prepare veg and our meals.

Tom and I have grand dreams of one day moving to a more rural area, preferably back in Wales.  In the meantime, I will enjoy watching Escape to the Country and browsing Right Move for our dream home, which we can buy when Tom starts making millions.  Did I ever mention that I always intended to marry rich?  Shame I’m rubbish at following through on my plans.

Now if you excuse me, I am off to indulge in my final bites of chocolate before lent commences and henceforth my abstinence from the dark temptress.

  1. My husband and I have a love/hate relationship with Escape to the Country. We watch it sometimes to adore all the beautiful homes, but it usually ends with my husband being super depressed because we can’t get anything remotely interesting or filled with character in Australia! Wales would make us even more envious. So green and beautiful (something we can’t get here either!)

    I really like that street art.
