A simple day.
Saturday just went by – the first one, after coming back from Japan – that Felix and I spent together.
We came back on Valentine’s Day, when I passed out for 12h straight after a 12h flight. And then the madness begun: Maya’s eye; Felix’s got sick; we were moving… there was no time to relax, until yesterday – exactly 10 days after.
We had boxes to unpack in each room, and layers of dust to remove. Everything had been sitting there for so long, but yesterday it felt so good to move things around, clean up, and bring the flat back to a ‘liveable level’ (sure, the bedroom may look nice, but the rest was a mess).
With all the cleaning and unpacking, and the sun shining, we felt like going out and treating ourselves to a nice lunch.
We don’t want to leave Maya alone, so we picked a place that allows dogs.
She was so good, as she walked fine and then slept while we were eating.
Lots of you were asking about her, so thank you for caring! She is doing better and better, but as I said in the previous post, she needs lots of attention at all times, and the risk of her losing her eye is still there, unfortunately. But don’t worry, I will do everything I can to avoid that, of course.
This is the place we chose: Libation. We usually come here during the summer time because they offer more vegetarian options compared to their winter menu, and they have a little outdoor space where you can eat; but yesterday the inside was quiet enough so that Maya wouldn’t feel stressed, and the interior is stunning.
The best thing they do – in my opinion – is fries. I opted for sweet potato fries and a side of skinny fries yesterday. And none was left. They are just so good.
And then finished my lunch with a popcorn panna cotta dessert, with salted caramel. Delicious.
Here is my outfit for the day (from Olive clothing), by the way: I really like it, as it’s so relaxed, but I honestly cannot tell if it’s oversized, or simply too big on me. Either way, it’s very comfortable, and I like the red. I may end up taking in a few cm around the waist once I unpack my sewing machine.
Anyway, now that things are being put in place, the house is a little bit less of a mess and everything is cleaner, I feel like my mind is more organised too. Today the workers aren’t here, since it’s a Sunday, so I’m going to snap a bunch of photos for my Depop shop, and finish up a project coming out in a few days – can’t wait to show you!
What are you up to this weekend?
Anything fun happening?
