I've been a little AWOL recently and for that I'm sorry. I've been caught up in the stress of househunting (it always starts off fun then gets progressively less enjoyable) but have finally found a place and we're moving at the weekend! It's been a total whirlwind and I have a bazillion tabs open with bed frames, sofas and other very important things that the house doesn't have and I need to buy. Coupled with many a Pinterest session, I think it's going to be an expensive month.
I've also spent two days on a course for work that had me standing up and presenting no less than four times (two were videoed which is highly embarrassing and entertaining in equal measure), took our new American team member to Burger & Lobster and spent half an hour trying to get us all looking normal for an updated team photo. Harder than it seems, I tell you.
Yesterday was spent in a fetching yellow poncho at Notting Hill Carnival. Despite having lived in London for seven years, I'd never been - so of course I went on the wettest day of the year. But it was great! We danced in the parade, dodged a lot of twerking and made friends with lions. Summer may well and truly be over but what a way to see it out.
