Orsii weekend face

This was my exhausted but happy face on Friday evening when I finished work – what an intense but lovely day and what a great finish to an exhausting week!


I was super chuffed that our first official “decorative purchase” for the flat went up on the wall too! Oh, our beloved pineapple (that we got from Print Club London), just makes me smile every time I look at it.

Crystal Palace view

After the roofer left Saturday morning, we went swimming and then rented a car to quickly drop off some stuff at Lewisham recycling centre.

We then had a  walk through Forest Hill & Sydenham, all the way up the hill to Crystal Palace for some lunch and antique shopping. What a view!

weekend lunch with cata

I was very pleasantly surprised with the lunch we had in one of the pubs on the corner of the park – the sun was shining and I was so full & content that I could have easily fallen asleep on that bench!

new mirror

Ended up buying this “shabby chic” mirror for £75 – don’t care what people are saying – it WILL look AMAZING in a matte, off-white colour (with some potential gold detailing) in our living room on the big wall above the radiator.

lancashire hotpot

Finished off the weekend by cooking a Lancashire hotpot – took me roughly 3 hours after my long run & it tasted nice, but I think the recipe I got from Waitrose had too much stock in it! Next time (if there will be one…) I will definitely use around 300ml stock and not 500ml!

March is my anniversary month so I thought I’d share some music that the boy has introduced (or re-introduced) into my life. Safe to say I wouldn’t usually listen to most of this music, but I find it incredibly good to run to!

Once again it might be worth mentioning that loads of stuff is missing because I don’t want it to be a 12 hour playlist, so yeah, artists like (for example) Jay-Z had to stay off it as I might just do a running playlist dedicated to him (or maybe him & Bey, we shall see).

Keb Darge Jazzman on NTS

I am so excited to share the great news that the legend that is KEB DARGE will be joining us on the Jazzman radio show this Friday (14th March) between 12-2pm on NTS Radio.

For those of you who don’t know, he’s has had an amazing career as a prolific DJ, producer and record collector spanning over more than three decades!

I’ve never met him before so am a bit nervous, but all I can say is that you simply CANNOT MISS OUT ON THIS SHOW! And if you do, make sure you check back here for when I share it via the Jazzman Mixcloud page.

So the time, date and place to put in your diaries:
