This crappy cake.
Fun at work. Chats, laughter and normality.
Flatmate fun. Including big thumbs up.

Napping in the sun on our bed.
Fresh orange juice.
It was so warm today that I had to take off two layers, then change into looser clothes and then open three windows. It felt like summer. It was lovely.

Sun and no wind.
Going over to Eastbourne for fish and chips and an ice cream on the beach.
Learning a bit about Japanese culture.

Going for a walk up the hill, in the sun and out the wind, smelling wild garlic and pines, stepping in mud and on spongy moss.
Chocolate cake.
In sync with my boyfriend.

An email from one of my best friends, mainly about Lolfins
Laughing so hard we cried. And over pies.
Feta, beetroot and avocado for dinner.

The precarious orange at New World.
The crazy weather. Huge clap of thunder and then hail so heavy that it laid for a while.
Trying the ridiculously rich chocolate cake at work. So. Good.

Sitting outside at lunch time to enjoy the gorgeous blue sky.
My first sewing knits class. It’s nice to learn new things again. And muttering ‘shit shit shit’ next to a woman also muttering ‘shit shit shit’.
Telling everyone what an absolute twat I am because I was too embarrassed (and British) to correct my sewing teacher when she thought I was someone else and called me by a. different name she even asked me directly ‘and how are you doing Lisa?’ And I answered! What an idiot. How am I ever going to correct her?! Oh well, at least it’s funny!

Getting a silly photo of my boyfriend blowing me a kiss.
Some time alone.
Sewing. More sewing.

Listening to All You Need Is Love and mouthing along as I walked up the hill.
Having a WhatsApp chat with my boyfriend.
Meditation.

Having a shower with the sun shining through the window. It’s nice to have a shower in the daylight but it also reminded me of showering at home in the summer, knowing I had a whole day of being outside in the garden or the countryside ahead of me, with my parents near by and everything being safe and normal.
The weather was beautiful today. The market was full with people buying bags of fresh, colorful good and afterwards I sat on the dock, thinking and meditating a bit and for the first time thinking to myself that maybe I could stay here longer. It’s a beautiful city. And the winters are just so sunny.
The sunlight glittering off the sea. It looked like an elaborate light show just for me.
