The Midnight Run // 16/08/2014 from Inua Ellams on Vimeo.

The Midnight Run was truly amazing and any one wanting to see London, or Berlin, Paris or Madrid for that matter, from a different side should sign up and join one this summer. Inua is a great guide and it was something magical about walking London for so many hours you could barely think straight. Like when you were a kid and being up in the middle of the night made everything exotic and exciting.

This is the new image for the Midnight Run.

Who is that pretty lady 🙂

T – 11 hours

Sweden in 11 hours. Woop woop. Cant wait for some hard bread with cheese, leverpastej, tea, kissing Alma and the forest. I say as Julie Andrews, those are a few of my favourite things.

These are some of Olivers pictures form last year. I have a feeling that it will look as bleak. Ive been wanting to show Oliver the country house in snow but still havent managed for the soon 4 years we’ve been together.

Two days at the country house by ourselves, two days with the parents and then one day doing the sights and sounds of Nykoping.

The funny looking houses out where my mum and dad lives. I remember when there were nothing here when they moved here. Now its a bit more impressive.

 Oliver love photographing this pile of shit. I think it speaks to his sense of bleak.

Soon!

Me and my little burn are heading to the doctors today. Ive been bullied into it by the joint force of parents and Oliver. I also emailed the pub hoping for some compensation, they havent come back to me yet. I sounded way more bad ass than i am in that email, that was due to Oliver…

The sun is shining today and tomorrow we are off to the country house and next week ill be sipping cocktails in Barcelona with Maggie. Not too shabby if you are asking me.

 Here are a proper London picture from Olivers PAD project.

and here is an awesome picture of the bets dog in the world. Will miss him when we are away but im sure he will be well looked after by Fiona and Miranda.

Saint Etienne – Tonight

Burn baby, burn

It was a quiet weekend the one past. I was on a sneezeathon on Friday so went home to the sofa and bed early.

On Saturday we went to Richmond with Ols family and in the evening we ate at a new neighborhood Japanese.

Ho-ja. They didnt have any tabke for us but quickly made one out of some skinny, high tables. Good thing we are tall.

The food was cheap (£5 for a main) and really nice even if some of it was a bit weird for our European taste buds. Well worth another visit for that price though.

On Sunday we went to the Heath to celebrate Benjies bday. It poured down but since our doggie needs his walks Ol and me sludged along in the mud when the others were in the pub.

Eventually we could join them and went to a place called Holly Bush for an excellent roast. One of the best once ive had.

Everything was fine and dandy and we drank ciders, ate cake and talked about our dogs. As you do as dog parents.

That could have ended as any other nice Sunday until the dopey waiter spilled tea on me. Very hot tea.

It turned into a proper burn and was properly painful. This is what my arm look like at the moment. Not pretty. Being used to burns after the big leg accident (why is it always tea? Maybe the land of tea is trying to tell me something?) I knew that the best thing is to dress it and hope it doesnt get infected.

Ol wanted me to go to ER but the thought of spending my Sunday night there was too much so we made a makeshift bandage and hoped for the best.

Today painful but im sure it will be fine. If my leg could heal without scars im sure this can.

TGIF!

Friday! You finally came. This week felt eons long. Not that I really have any plans. We are celebrating Benjie on Sunday but other than that nothing. Im brewing a massive snot factory in my sinuses so maybe for the best.

Woolly realising am eating banana bread. He loves that shit but since it got chocolate in he cant have it.

‘hey mummy, mummy. i looove you. Have i told you how much I love you?’

Tonight probably Gotham. Love that series. What is not too love about all the Batman villains before they were bad. Poison Ivy as a kid. If you are a snot factory what better way to spend you Friday?

Happy weekend all. Im sending you off with a pretty awesome song.

Stumbling wanderer

Long day yesterday. One of those when shit hits the fan and you are in the middle of it trying to work out what happened. No Burning Man tickets and working until 11 cleaning up some mess at work. Met Ol at 11.30 at the turkish restaurant for some well needed dinner and a breather.

Really gutted about BM but Ill do my best for it to work out. I dream of that place. I dream of a lot of places, its just that I cant really figure out where they are. Keep feeling restless but cant pinpoint to where. I sit on the sofa or at my desk trying to figure it out but get nowhere.

Im hoping I will somehow know but what if. What if I need to go out and find the answer myself.

Travels

It was pancake day yesterday but i didnt take any pics of pancakes so you get one of me chillin with Woolly instead. Thats better anyway.

My stomach is, as always, a nightmare and most of the night was spent on the bed in pain. The Holmses nailed 6 pancakes each, I ended up on 3 and there was a lot of will competing against stomach to even manage that much. Oh well, it was some great pancakes, the savory ones even had beer in them.

But, to more fun things:

  • I booked a ticket to Sweden and my country house next week. Ol and me are going from Wednesday to Monday.  Exactly what i need.
  • In 2 weeks im going to Barcelona with work for 2 days. Yes, tapas!
  • Tonight we are, cross fingers, booking tickets to Burning man. Yes, neon dancing!

Good days ahead.
