Gah this post could end up being a downer. I don’t want to go into too many details but as you can imagine my moving to Greenwich did rest on a number of chances? Maybe promises is a better word. Some of them appear to be falling through and it’s left me feeling under-the-weather with an inflamed eye and I’m still not quite over this cold. But I’m cheering up. I promise.
Greenwich Clockhouse Market
T isn’t a fan of the Clockhouse Market in Greenwich. I think it’s because it’s one of those markets where you really have to look. There are lots of bits and bobs which I wouldn’t want but another man’s trash is another man’s treasure and all that. I bought a retro-leather handbag for £15 which I have already fallen head over heels for. It’s such a perfect shape, colour and size. I also bought a longline cardigan in a size 14 (which is a little too big for me) but makes it into this perfect oversized cardi.
Caribbean Food from Greenwich Market
Not even going to apologise for this one- every week that we’re in London together T and I find an excuse to stop into Greenwich Market and buy something amazing. I had been eyeing up the Caribbean food for a couple of weeks and it was to die for. Slow-cooked pork, perfectly cooked and seasoned rice and peas, and I love coleslaw (I think it’s a love of hate kinda thing.) Anyway – this was fantastic.
Danny Dyer and Who do you think you are?
I’m not a big fan of Danny Dyer but on Who do you think you are, he was brilliant. It’s a really funny and intriguing episode and definitely worth a watch.
I work at a University and lots of people sell bits and bobs every week. There’s a been a chainsaw, a tortoise and over 200 comic books come through just this week. Over black Friday I had my eyes on a Nutribullet but I just couldn’t justify the cost. This week a silver one popped up for only £25.00 on said selling page so I nabbed it. It arrived the next day, it’s almost new and I adore it. Such a brilliant Christmas present just for me.
As of this week I’ve lost a stone and three pounds and kept it off (SO FAR.) I’m incredibly proud of myself and starting to feel more confident. I didn’t realise that my wardrobe had almost become a shrine to oversized jumpers and baggy tshirts so may need to do a little more shopping. I’ve written a couple on posts of how I’ve done it – mainly the snacks I’ve converted to whilst reading and blogging so they’ll be up soon!
(I made a chicken tickka masala style soup and it was incredible – tasty and filling and super healthy.)
Any fellow Pokemon fans will know that the game has gone a little downhill over the last few months and that Niantic have been trying to get people back playing again but finally FINALLY there’s a tracking system that allows you to find pokemon a pokestops which is brilliant. Hilariously T and I live on top of Pokestop so when playing from the sofa it’s not helpful but when you’re out an about it bloody brilliant.
Aaaaaaand I finally caught a bloody ditto! Fuck yas.
So there’s my week. I’ve struggled a little this week if I’m honest – my blog needs a refresh, my job is brilliant but unsettling at times and the cold weather has really struck me down. I’ve felt more grumbly than I have in weeks but another week down, I’m sure the next will be better.
