Market day

Went to the Saturday flea market today, found more dishes to match the ones I bought there a couple of weeks ago… from the same lady! Guess she was holding out on me. Also makes me wonder if I’ll ever find the dinner plates to go with my bowls and saucers.

I did find some dinner plates, not matching the rest, but cute and affordable, £1 for 6. Okay for now. Kinda 70’s chic.

I went to my favorite Russian patisserie vendor for bread, but as it was already late they were out of whole wheat and everything else. So I got a treat instead.

I also found a knife-sharpening steel, citrus juicer, knitting needle set in a roll up pouch, Being A Photographer book, fresh pears, and free range eggs.

Also this week, my bathroom cabinet arrived. It is now assembled and moved into the shower room, replacing the shoe box to hold toiletries.


Organic coffee and quinoa delivery came yesterday from my new favorite online sustainable grocer, Abel & Cole. Now just waiting for Amazon to get me my Bialetti! :)


Weekend wellbeing

It’s been a good one. Dinner with friends, practice/study with a friend, flea & farmers market, lots more shopping, and finally last night got loads of sleep. I have a full fridge, more of the mundane necessaries for daily life, and furniture on the way. This coming weekend I’ll get to see two very good friends from far away. I’m pleased with all that I’ve accomplished. Now if only this scientific method essay would write itself…
