I’ve had a year of distraction between one thing and another. However this morning it feels like I’m the old me again. I didn’t wake ’til almost 09:00! don’t you love a Saturday that doesn’t start early? I’ve pottered about, had my breakfast. I’ve started to use almond milk on my porridge – it’s a flavour combo I think works well together and the almond milk also reminds me of the Horchata we had when we were in Valencia earlier this year. I’ve posted a photo over on my other blog Here, I’ve dipped into blog feeds I haven’t opened in months! and I have a blanket on my hook that is calling to me. I think all in all I’m starting to feel a lot more settled in myself and that makes me very happy. Now I’m off to do a little of my Duolingo (one of the things that has occupied my time for the last year – I’m on a 233 day streak!) and then I have to actually start the day.
Have a great Saturday and here’s a lovely picture to start your… Afternoon!
Every Saturday morning I go through my instagram feed for the week, this is no small endeavour! Here is a selection of 4 – I love the way they dress their photos and their lighting is exquisite, they make me smile 🙂
I love listening to the radio – I have one in every room in the apartment even the smallest room!
Actually, that’s not exactly true – I did have a radio on my locker but retired it for the telly. What I mean by that is we get the radio through the television and the signal is much, much better! However this morning two things happened to be bring the radio back to the locker – I woke up in time to listen to Gloria on LyricFM and the remotes were over on his locker. The radio was found, plugged in and I snuggled back down to listen. It really was glorious! The reception wasn’t too bad either.
Speaking of reception – I mentioned earlier that reception is better on the telly – well that’s not really worth anything if there’s no electricity! As was the case last week. I had just gotten off the bus when all of the house alarms started going off. It seems that when the electricity fails you don’t get silence these days. I do like having no electricity – it’s like an adventure! Anyway with no telly or internets there was only the radio left! So out came my transistor (I don’t think they can be called a tranny any more) and the reception of BBC radio 4 was PERFECT! We listened away ’til the lights came back and at that point all of the static electricity that was being generated completely destroyed the reception. Now I know some will go what did you expect but it had never dawned on me before – yes, electrical weather but household, no!
Here is my old faithful –
I’ve had her for too many years than I’d care to admit to!
