After the madness that was March, and the annus horriblus that was most of 2014-2015, I’m really really hoping for a break. One chilled out month to regroup and replenish with soul-feeding things, like…
I’m rediscovering the beach/bush trails just a few minutes from home, the same ones my friends and I used to roam as teenagers. They’re so blissfully peaceful, with nobody else around – a world apart from civilisation yet just a few steps away.
The flatmates are into games too, so we’ve had a few game nights already! I don’t have a TON of board games but so far Cards Against Humanity has been dominating. (We’ve worked our way through most of the cards now, though.)
I’m pretty sure I’m past the songwriting phase of my life, but I want to get back to learning some songs that have been on my wishlist forever. It’s a lot easier to pick up my guitar when there’s actually space to play, rather than having to manoeuvre it out of its case, cram myself into a corner between the bed and wall and sit right next to my amp.
Ever since Webstock a little corner of my brain has been wanting to start something. What, I don’t know. But I can definitely start with things that I’ve been wanting to do but just haven’t been in the right headspace to do yet, like get some of our wedding photos printed and hung on the wall; make a photo album from our RTW travel photos; and a video montage of our travel footage.
Alas, the spa jets in the bath don’t seem to work, but even so, it’s an epic tub with ample room for one or two people. I foresee a trip to Lush in the near future to pick out cute stuff to make bathtime extra fun.
