Happy in LondonFebruary 23 in the United Kingdom
I often think to myself that I am happy here and how lucky and grateful I am at the process of what got me to this point. The broken foot saga is still a sore spot but that chapter is over.
What I do find odd is the glum faces I see on the tube. There's resting bitch face, then there's resting glum about to cry face. I've seen this on so many people lately and it's horrible. From my age to older, how have they been so sad that their face can naturally contort to that?
I do think I'll stick to my plan of moving city summer next year. I actually imagine that when I come back from nz, as much as I love my neighbourhood I'll find the fact of how inpersonal London is will get to me.
What I do miss is having friends I can go for a drink with after work. Or what a movie in the weekend. Or just turn up with wine and hang out in a different scenery.
As there's no point sitting in a bar by myself, the prices are usually high and the people don't talk to strangers.
I think my Amazon order summed up my life pretty well. I ordered a decorative metal wine bottle cork holder, you know, to have a visual representation of all the wine i drink. A London life colouring book and 72 coloured pencils. I'm hoping that a London colouring book will help me visualize the place in vibrant colours and get me to notice things I haven't before.
I had to call the helpline as I couldn't check out for some reason. She didn't make any comment in my purchase but I found it funny.
It really is getting cold now, was at close brain freeze stage outside and it's meant to snow next week. I think it's time to rug up with wine and colouring. Meant to be good for the mind right? It'll be like the last book, where I could tell how much wine I'd had by how much I coloured outside the lines 🤣
Fee mentioned the movie of 'how to be single' It actually took me a while to get the courage to watch it as last time the ideas effected me quite strongly.
This time it made me happy to be single. Watch it all the way to the end and they talk about how being truly single ( not just romantically ) should be cherished as it doesn't last for long. To be truly in charge of your own life, your own decisions, with little or no external influences, it really is something to enjoy.Read more
