It’s hard to believe that I’ve now completed 11 whole months of my Instagram challenge, because it means that my twenties are rapidly drawing to a close. It’s less than a month til I hit the big Three-Zero, but I’m trying not to panic too much about the fact that I’ve not yet got round to completing everything on my 30 Before 30 list. It’s been yet another busy month with work, which hasn’t left a great deal of time for anything other than stressing about our imminent house move, which is still slightly up in the air (much to our frustration). Anyway, here are my photos from Month 11.
The first day back at work after over two weeks off, and thankfully it was a productive one.
A lovely dinner with friends; I got these to take for dessert!
A freezing day – I was glad of this!
It was great to get my feet off the ground for a short flight.
I’m growing my collection of Observer books, and was delighted to find this bookplate in the front of one of my newest additions to the collection. An interesting postscript to this story is that I looked up the name on Facebook and found the man whose book it was! He said that he won another book the following year, which he still had, but that his mum must have given this one to a charity shop when he left home in 1971. I wonder how many times it’s changed hands since then?
I’m really loving these gorgeous, soft, snuggly slippers that Lee gave me for Christmas from Joules. They make getting out of bed in the mornings a pleasure!
Sunshine in Stratford, but bitterly cold and windy.
Mobbed by puppies!
A gorgeous blue sky day in Stratford, but very cold again. This is what winter should be like!
And a part two… I’m in love with my gorgeous new boots!
A little bit of Sunday baking: plum cake.
Another gorgeous airfield sunset.
The most beautiful frosty morning.
Dinner at the Rooftop Restaurant at the Royal Shakespeare Company to celebrate Lee’s birthday.
ANOTHER glorious airfield sunset!
Very happy to be back in Rome!
A lovely day showing Lee and our friends around Rome.
Exploring the Caelian Hill in Rome.
I had to get up really early to get some urgent client work done, but it meant I got to see a beautiful sunrise.
Reliving the weekend in Rome by writing about it on here.
We really needed to switch off from the stresses of the outside world for a bit, so we went to see Star Wars at the cinema with our free Club Lloyds tickets. It was surprisingly good!
A gorgeous blue sky day.
Cuddling some gorgeous puppies at Guide Dogs – these are a mix of German Shepherd and Golden Retriever.
A lovely evening with lovely friends and homemade pizza!
We had a lazy day off for a change, enjoying a cheap and cheerful Sunday roast at a local pub, right next to this amazing aqueduct.
We had an enjoyable afternoon at Croome Court, despite getting very windswept. Blog post coming soon!
A lovely rainbow at the airfield – that pot of gold looks quite close!
On the climb-out from Sywell after lunch there with Lee and Jonny.
I cycled right the way round the airfield – my first time on a bike since San Francisco! Turns out that I’m rather out of shape.
Brooding skies at the airfield, so we headed home early for a change.
I cheated slightly with this one, as I was working all day and the weather was horrid outside, so I did a throwback to sitting in the sun in the Circus Maximus two weeks previously.
Sunshine and showers meant a beautiful rainbow at the airfield, though I only caught its tail end!
