It’s probably time to stop apologising for how late these posts are coming in the month. I just have to accept that I am not organised enough to get them done in a timely fashion, though I promise that I will try!
So March was a very busy month, not least because I moved house! From where Hannah and I were renting previously, we moved about ten minutes down the road, still in Essex (though getting closer to Suffolk), and into a little house with a lovely view of the river that runs by the house.
It really is a beautiful place to live, and although we are still not properly sorted (still have no furniture in the living room, and I have a few more bits to get for my bedroom), I do love it here.
Work has been very busy, because all of March was spent building up to an event in Glasgow at the very beginning of April (the main reason why this post is so delayed!). Things have only calmed down temporarily, because we are now going to spend the next month building up to an event in Manchester in May!
There was, of course, some fun to be had in amongst the moving and the working. I went for afternoon tea with my sisters and my niece, which I will blog about separately, because it ticks off a 34 Before 34 item. I went, once again, to the BFI Southbank to see Mark Kermode: Live in 3D – I’m hoping to go every month this year so you should expect to see me mention this again and again! I was lucky enough on this occasion to hear Mark chat with Ben Wheatley, who was busy that week promoting High Rise, as he took to the stage to defend Zardoz. I was also thrilled to meet up with three lovely ladies that I have got to know on Twitter through our mutual love of Wittertainment! I am already friends with Chloe, having been with her to a few different Kermode/Mayo/Wittertainment events, but I was also able to meet up with Liz and Goldy, and we have plans for more Girl Gang-related shenanigans in the future!
I did some laughter yoga at work, which was an experience, and I had a lovely Good Friday with my friends in the park. Hannah also celebrated her birthday in March, so we spent a day in London seeing a film at the BFI and then had dinner at Zizzi’s, so Hannah could try the new vegan cheese pizza (verdict – tasty!).
I’ve also been wearing my dungarees, a lot! They are my new favourite outfit, paired with almost anything (though not a checked shirt, for fear of veering into lumberjack territory), and I have to resist the urge to wear them every other day!
And I bought some new shoes, which are also my new favourite thing, and I can obviously get away with wearing these every day if I want to! I had wanted them for a while, and then I managed to get them from the Clarks concession in Sainsbury’s when they had a 25% clothing promotion. We’re very happy together.
So that was my March, and now we’re already a third of the way through April!
