The Month of September.

Has felt very long.
It started with moving home and job on the 2nd
Hello Forest Hill. I've had fun finding a favourite new coffee shop (The Teapot) new nail place, cobblers and dry cleaners.
Lots of September had been spent unpacking... and working...
A Sunny Saturday Surrey BBQ with friends of Warmth who are becoming 'our friends.'
Eid Mubarak on Friday 10th September.
Drinks sitting outside on the South Bank enjoying the September sunshine and then Dim Sum.
Loving the London Overground - journey to work, so easy to get to Cowshed Shoreditch for beauty treatment, and Dalston to meet a friend and a delicious Vietnamese Huong Viet (Englefield Road).
Discovered that my favourite House of Fraser at Monument isn't open on Saturdays. Hurrah for late night shopping. Searching for The Perfect Winter Boot but did finally find The Perfect Purse.
A party at the most a.mazing flat with a view of St. Paul's Cathedral.
A dear dear friend announced her engagment.
Marylebone mooching and Wallace Collection with dear university friends, one of whom was over from New Zealand.
Discovered a good new bar and tapas restaurant in Charlotte Street for friend's birthday.
Nails Island Hopping by Essie and treated myself to Chanel 'paradoxical' I love it though must get better at applying myself.
A wonderful night with my dear 'former colleagues and more importantly friends.'
Hello King's Road I missed you. Cashmere gloves bought only to return home to discover in pile of unopened post a free postage and 10% off said company!
Drinks in Shepherd's Market.
Menier Chocolate Factory a fantastic lunch and then the final performance of 'Aspects of Love'. Not at all what I thought it would be like.
Read Unless by Carol Shields and The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald
The knowledge that autumn has arrived.


  1. My goodness! September was indeed busy for you wasn't it? But it also sounds like a month very well spent, and what more could we ask for than that!

  2. I love the way you write about each month - it's something I'd like to try if you didn't mind? it's a nice way of summing up things done, which can otherwise be just forgotten. You have had such a busy month though - I hope you are feeling more settled into your new home and job.

  3. That is a full and varied month by any standards! Unless is my favourite Carol Shields book: I love the way she allows her anger to spill eloquently onto the pages, slapping at the naysayers of her work like irritating flies.

  4. Verity - do a monthly round up post. I do it for me as a memory and the fact that others like it makes it more the merrier.
    Tonia - ooh I have a few Unless quotes up my blog sleeve.....
    Hip Hip - yes it was amonth well spent!


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
