A Week of Adventure.
7 days ago, I blogged about wanting adventure.
As of today, I feel like I really have had a week of adventure.
Here’s a quick list.
- My Old Dutch- On Monday, Kasia and I had a pre-pancake day pancake date. DEEEEELISHIOUS meal, it was. And I’ve been spending more time with Kash again, which feels really good.
- Through the Ages- Angus took me and Meg to a ballet-fusion dance show at the Peacock Theatre. Reluctant as I am to admit it, the LSE is a fantastic repository of talented students.
- Thames Path- Last Tuesday, I walked back home from Megan’s place. (We made pancakes and had cheese toasties!) Except I walked across London Bridge, passed St. Paul’s, sat on a ledge by the river watching Southwark Bridge changing colour in its technicolour lighting and just soaked up the riverside city. It was beautiful.
- Capitalism and Gender Violence- I realise that attending guest lectures might not qualify on most lists of adventure, but I really do love going to these talks- I learn so much and it feels so productive and adventures of the mind are adventures too. I hope that the professor who spoke will reply to my e-mail question eventually.
- We Will Rock You- Queen. From the stalls. Dominion Theatre. No more needs to be said. Thank you, Shiv.
- Hackney/Stoke Newington- Saturday flea market with Kash. And walking around hipster area. And trying on less than Wingshan sized vintage dresses and buying shiny earrings and rainbow rings and looking for presents and walking through parks and cemeteries and feeling like we’ve left the city and having epiphanies about life and contentment and dogs and partners and children and parks and happiness. And then dinner at Kimchee. I’m glad I decided to resist the nap and go out.
- SUNSHINE SUNDAY- Sunbathing in Gordon Square with my girls and sleeping on the grass while Wing sprawls across me and makes herself comfortable resting on my tummy and Kasia reads ‘How to be a Woman’ out loud and we laugh at some of the writing and move around to get the best sun and talk about floofs and fairness and my eyes are closed, but I can feel a daisy being placed behind my ear and I love them so much and I really hope spring is here to stay.
