Yes, I know, it's Monday tomorrow, which means we all have to go back to work. I'm relieved to say that I'm only in for two days before taking some annual leave - a much needed break from what often feels like Groundhog Day.
But whilst work has been rather tiresome, this week I've noticed a few firsts. Okay. maybe they aren't anything major, but little things that, when I think about it, show that, whilst making the most of life, I might actually be getting somewhere...
- I finally get why everyone seems to think East London is really cool. After a weekend of swimming in London Fields Lido, mooching around Spitalfields and lunching at my local Walthamstow farmer's market, I can see ventures west becoming less frequent.
- I had a conversation with my solicitor about my will and chatted to my financial advisor about life insurance. Because buying a flat isn't scary enough.
- I experienced my first tube journey in a carriage with no lights - after 13 years of living in London. Hopefully it won't happen again for another 13.
- I went to M&M World. Something I've been curious about for a while but, like the Bavarian Beerhouse at Old Street, I don't think I'll ever feel the need to go again.
