Sunday

The clodhoppers upstairs kept going till about 3am (yawn), had some odd dream about trying to sell a property and we had made furniture out of, well, crap basically, but the selling point was the huge secret room, which was another house really, with gardens on the roofs

Monday

Doing very little today, though having said that spent most of day creating and updating web sites and blogs, who knew it could take up so much time? but am taking the opportunity to recreate and create my online world

Now sat in the sunshine on the terrace, might go back in and do some more stuff online – quite frankly, I’m popped

Hanging round the apartment, then out after 3 to browse shops on market st, found great bookshop with lots to look at, bought Tina Fey book for Paul and one minute mindfulness for me

Drinks at Cafe Flore (delish iced chai) popped in pottery barn and back to apartment via Walgreens and Mollie Stones

Chilli for dinner with yummy raspberry and vanilla sorbet and a few strawberries so make the whole thing health health health
