Dans le Noir [Feb. 12th, 2019|08:15 pm]

Monday 11 February: Dans le Noir

Last night we ate in complete darkness and it was such a surreal and amazing experience. The waiter are blind and help you navigate to your table, give you tips on how to pour your own water and careful serve you. Eating food really become your main focus without other distraction, guessing what it is from the smells, shapes and the taste, a very different sensory experience. My three courses were amazing and I did guess a few parts correctly but got so many wrong but then i rarely have some of those wonderful fancy ingredients. It really make you think of how different life without vision must be like. Once done you discover what you ate with the menu which was very interesting. Thanks to Simon parents for the special engagement treat.

From messy diy creatures to clubbing ones, tired and so much to do tomorrow but at the same time so rare to be in London when Reptile is on. Have to pop there even if just for a little bit.

Mega Kitchen project [Feb. 12th, 2019|07:00 pm]

Mega Kitchen project

Sat 2-Sunday 3 february

We have been doing little bits everyday but last weekend we went into double gear to empty the kitchen ready for the builders to arrive on last monday, a temp kitchenette set up in the living room , the junk room full of kitchen bits and every other spaces full of the future kitchen that was also delivered that’s saturday morning.



door knobs!!



bye bye horrible kitchen




Monday 4 February- Friday 8th

Impressed by our first day of kitchen project, the gas guys were here at 7.30am, the builders in by 8am, all has been ripped out, collected and they have started on the electrics. Will be so nice to not see the horrible mucky back walls when opening cabinets , a working extractor or even better oven plug that do not melt.






Looks like cabinets are starting to appear in the kitchen today https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/t4c/1/16/1f642.png:) Off to play some boardgames and eat something not made in a microwave for a while





Slight pain working from home with the electrics being turned on and off a lot today but starting to look like a kitchen rather than building site. Electrics are done and I can see our new black sink. They reckon 1 or 2 more days, I really hope it will be one so we can utilise this weekend to do all the rest.



Friday , 5 days later :Impressed the kitchen is all done, with cat





Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 February
Sanding is such an horrible job, not my fav way to spend my Saturday. First coat of paint done, need to check tomorrow with fresh eyes add been a long day of making a mess





All the walls and shelves painted, lots of progress in the kitchen but this is my favourite bit. Our new light switch inspired by the one we saw in the Wimbledon Buddhist temple





Still unsure the blue and green we picked painting wise were the right one, but need to get on and hopefully it will tie better once the tile transfer are here and covered in frames. Bit too cold atm

Grimaldi Memorial Service in All saints Haggerston [Feb. 12th, 2019|06:47 pm]

Sunday 3 February: Grimaldi Memorial Service in All saints Haggerston

After being stuck in the house for the past few days due to the throat infection I dragged along in India and a massive cold by Sunday decided to attempt going out for the first time. Annoyed I missed a trip to theatre, gig and club!!!
Sunday afternoon in church is not my usual preference, but the Grimaldi Memorial Service was quite different with clown acts between the hymns! So one more of those quirky London experience that had been on my to do list for years achieved

tattoo Engagement ring [Feb. 12th, 2019|06:41 pm]

Tuesday 5th February: Tattoo Engagement ring

My engagement ring has become a bit more permanent thanks to Bonnie Baker. Also my first hand poke tattoo. I love wearing rings when I go out but not on a daily basis, so decided to have my own version to match the Chalice Wells ring Simon with. It also nicely tie in with my arm tattoo . Cannot wait to be in Glastonbury next month to get one in the correct size and simon is keeping the original one as his engagement ring, as it fits perfectly ❤️

Projects

The headpiece I have been working on for a while for the Pre-Raph Faery Ball. Dealing with so much hair, plaiting and dangling bits has not been easy with two kitten helpers. Inspired by the ladies hair style in their beautiful paintings with my own little twists. Hopefully posting it here won't risk someone to make another complete copy of it , or at least not until after the event . Very pleased with it.






 

Second curtain finally turned into a skirt to match the jacket made by Paul last year. Simon outfit for the Pre-Raphaelite Ball is inspired by one of their main influence Botticelli and its muse

Souvenirs

So many more things i wished i could have returned with especially some of the big kitsch deities ornaments but backpacking from city to city with just a rucksack was limiting and as always the best one i wanted where at beginning. At least finally found some fabrics on the last days when i was rushed and i am so happy i got those garish kali panels fabrics as that was on my must found :) My bindi collection is refilled and some fab rings :) Shame the shoes i got for simon were too small!!

India

This trip was quite an experience. I expected to fall in love with india, as since teenage years somewhere i always wanted to go. Maybe i had a bit of a unrealistic romantic hippy image of it  but it  wasn't quite the case. During my short trip we backpacked through Tamil Nadu so we mostly experience noisy busy cities, polluted, dirty and of course extreme poverty . I did found the traveling from a-b quite complicated compared to other countries and no rest from the constant noises. Nothing was ever simple and no such thing as a cafe to hide from it all. However what one can do on a small budget is incredible, a  week of our various hotels add up to half a night in an hotel here. On the other hand it was also fascinating, as so very different to all my previous travels, no connexion as i expected to saome degree to Sri lanka or south east asia, very unique. I explored the most amazing temples and met some lovely people. I am sure other areas can be very different  and  despite hours and hours of travels between each town we only explore a tiny section.  I plan to return one day to see more,  :) Def still have to do Goa and Rajasthan but not straight away, first i am making full happy joy to have wifi again, hot water , comfy bed and clean room, but i do miss the blue sky and hot weather.   It was great to experience that with my sister, niece and Julien.
