Joker & Tennis

Friday night. Patricia and a few other old workmates came to the office for drinks. I made an early night though as I had a food shopping collection at 8 pm. It was also the last Friday in this nice Fora office before we move back to the Gamesys office on Piccadilly. What a year this has been, haha.

Been raining all weekend. This is gonna be a very rainy Autumn.

Been raining all weekend. This is gonna be a very rainy Autumn.

This is the sort of weekends I want this Autumn. We played Tennis both Saturday and Sunday. We saw the Joker movie on Saturday night with Josh and Sameet. The movie was brilliant. I am not a comic-loving person. Honestly, Batman, when played by Christian Bale, makes me laugh. But this one was no superhero shit. Just a portrait of a very abused and sick person.

It was R first time playing Tennis on Saturday and we didn’t manage many back and forwards. Sunday was a massive improvement and we managed to keep the ball moving for quite a few time. It was great. 

We also went to view a room for Ross and he is moving in this week. And it’s only a 30 min walk from me! The flat was lovely and the flatmate too. 

Autumn is the new NYE

Back to routine after a year of travelling. Even if this has been my dream all my life, to travel and have an active life, I have now come to a place in time where I just wanna be home. I have a beautiful flat with my friends and I just wanna enjoy my time at home. I am happy that I am not gonna travel anymore this year. Except for Christmas.

This Wednesday I was planning to do some food shopping and in my head, I was thinking "I need to be careful with how much food I buy so I have an empty fridge for when I travel." But then it hit me, I don't need to!

This winter I will work on my fitness and health. Putting the drink to the side for a while and adding walking to my routine. Also planning to get a bike this or next month so that I can use my commute to strengthen my health rather than just sitting in a dirty tube.

I have a feeling this is gonna be a really good autumn.

Off to Stockholm

Yaaas baby! Today, me and my team will fly to Stockholm! Tomorrow we will work in our Stockholm office and on Friday we are meeting our members for a cruise until Saturday afternoon.

Me and Mathilda will stay from Saturday to Sunday and enjoy a weekend in the capital. I have not seen the lady in one year. How time flies! Hopefully I get to see my beautiful friend Malin when I am over too 😍

I did something crazy yesterday. Or not, I am not even sure. Some people thought it was crazy and I know people that think that it's nothing. But I walked all the way home yesterday from the office. It is 8,9 miles/14 km.

I just feel like I am sitting down 8 hours a day and it is not healthy. So I took on the challenge to walk all the way home. And luckily I have the best sister that kept me company for the three hours it took me to walk.

It was nice though and I saw some beautiful places and houses along the way. I will get myself a bike so I can take the same route but minimize the time spent travelling to 1h instead of 3h. I could also minimize the tube cost, haha.

I will try to walk a little today as well but not the whole way as I need to pack for Stockholm tomorrow.

This weekend has been great. R’s train back to Glasgow was supposed to leave at 16:30 from Euston. But as we were walking to the station we decided that he was going to stay for the whole weekend and go back on Monday instead. So we rebooked his ticket and just walked back with all his luggage to mine.

We then went for a stroll in the park where we started collecting chestnuts. Gonna do something creative with them. Not sure what yet exactly. But I’ll be back to get some more, haha.

After our walk I left for Chloës house to look at tours in the Philippines. We found a 4-day tour around the Coran island. AMAZING! I can not wait, it’s gonna be great.

Rest of the weekend was a chilled one. Walks, lots of “The dark crystal and the age of resistance“ (gosh I love that series), food and walks. The perfect autumn weekend.

B-day

R's birthday! We celebrated with tapas and beer. Started with two pints at Brewdog and then had tapas at Brindisa on Broadwick street.

The tapas was amazing and I got to drink some sherry. Love it. I recommend the grilled Presa Iberica and Chorizo Morcón.

I got R some goodies from MK and we finished with one last pint at John Snow across the street before we headed home.

On the way home, we had an "argument" about the overpopulation of the world and we were disagreeing on something and R burst out "if you took your time and read Stephen Hawking publications you should know that...", like it was the most normal thing I had missed to do 🤣I mean, I thought I was a geek, but I think I met my Superior 🤣
