January was probably the most un-eventful month since I started to write these series. How I know to pique your interest, don’t I? But, just because we were in London all this time, it doesn’t mean we got to the point to be bored, not at all. This was a month about food, a bit less than last month, I admit, about moving out of our flat, and about learning to take things slow.
If January is not the laziest month of the year, I don’t know what it is. After all the hustle and bustle of December, is it me or I am not the only person taking it slow. As if we’re all thinking- it’s just the first month of the year, I need to conserve my energy. Or maybe it’s the weather that…let’s just say, doesn’t really encourage you to sit outside a cafe and enjoy the view aka all the other people who have urgent things to do, when you don’t. Ah, the simple pleasures in life…
I am back on the reading band-wagon. I started the year finishing one of the smartest chic-lits that I’ve read – Penny Vincenzi is your girl if you’re looking for something easy to read, but not Sophie Kinsella easy. The highlight of the month was Stephen Fry’s “The Fry Chronicles” which was so funny and well written that now I want to read everything he wrote. By the way, if you were ever wondering, yes, I am one of those really weird people who when reading books, are blank-faced most of the time, and then they just burst out laughing. 😀
I continued with my mom’s favorite author, John Steinbeck “Of Mice and Men” which was heart-breaking and with dad’s favorite author, Haruki Murakami “What I talk about when I talk about running” which I have mentioned before and I am working my way through everything he has written also.
Now, if you are not interested in reading, what are you doing here reading my blog? Just kidding :)! I have something for the podcast lovers, especially if you are a fashion lover also, which I assume you are. MatchesFashion are doing the most amazing podcast – The Collector’s House where they interview people (you have heard about) from the fashion industry and asks them about their inspiration. I promise that this podcast makes going to work much easier.
Now, except the fact that we are moving out of our flat and that I have bonded a lot with east-Europeans over our national dishes, which are surprisingly similar, nothing much has happened. If you remember my November and December round-ups, you might remember that I said that so many things are happening that I can hardly “digest” them. Well, January has been a blessing with all it’s slowness and moodiness.
How was your January?
