Lovely food blog I’ve just discovered.
Nom nom nom - 495 pages of Christmasy goodness. A must read collaboration by blogger What Katie Ate that takes you from New York to Dublin to London and Sydney.
The reason why posts have increased by 500% in the last week or so is because:
- I am no longer spending my free time cutting out cootie catchers and folding name cards
- I am no longer laying pool side/beach side with the biggest decision of the day being ‘Greek salad or falafel for lunch?’
- I am finally admitting that I am UNemployed
- Being unemployed is horrifically boring.
I am trying to organize my days a little better without much luck today. I woke up at 9AM, had breakfast, checked for jobs, applied for a few, made some tea, took a picture of my cat drinking the tea (post 1 of today), read some my book (yesterday’s last post), fell asleep for 15 minutes while reading my book, woke up, ate some cheese on crackers, looked through wedding photos for the 34,304,403 time (which turned into post 2 of today), looked at jobs again, sighed, contemplated going for a run, paid a parking ticket, realised the pathetic amount of work accomplished today, started writing post 3 of today.
Anyways, I contemplated for a while what the theme of this blog will be as I like to keep it focused or it turns into ramblings of boring things that no one cares about. It started as a place for my creative writing course. That ended, and though I had big ambitions to keep writing, my notebook has already started collecting cobwebs. The majority of posts are about my cat, but I feel that though to me he is an endless source of amusement and entertainment, other people might feel different. Like ‘I don’t care about your cat that looks the same as every other cat on God’s green earth’ (which is how I feel when people put up pictures of their dog). Then I thought maybe about living in England, which I suppose is kind of unique and not an opportunity everyone has. So that’s where I am going to start. Little stories of my [married] life here. Thus the inspiration for the next post: how the H did I end up here?
