It really was the craziest of times, but I’m finally back! YAY! I’m all settled into my new little cloffice (closet office) in our rental. I haven’t had the chance to take any outfit photos just yet, because it’s literally taken us two weeks to move into the house next door. I cannot believe how much stuff we’ve accumulated over the years, it’s crazy! This isn’t helped by the fact that Michael runs his own renovation business so he has SO MUCH stuff related to that. Spare tiles, engineering machines, tubes, bricks, etc. Not to mention the fact that he’s a total motor head so there’s all the bikes, cars and everything related.
The inside of the rental is almost ship-shape. We just have to hang a few paintings and put up a couple of pairs of curtains. Once that’s done, we can relax a bit. I’m so looking forward to this weekend when we’ve decided to have a proper chill out. I just hope this weather clears up. It’s been raining this morning and the black clouds are hovering above. Funny thing is, Michael went out to see a client this morning, just twenty minutes away and he said the weather was gorgeous over there! I hope it finds its way over here, because I can’t wait to spend some time drifting on a lilo in our ‘new’ swimming pool!
@greybrunette I'm baaaaack! It's been a crazy month but I'm back and ready for some silliness 😜😜 #tiktoksilliness #foryoupage #fyp #foryou ♬ Brazilian Music Rhythmic Piano Jingle(866382) – Pi-bou
And after the craziest of times, I am in much need of some serious swimming pool drifting because you wouldn’t believe the amount of walking I’ve done over the past few weeks! The first day of the move, I think I did 25,000 steps!! Yes, you read that right. 25,000. Madness, right? The second day I did 28,000 steps and it basically went like that for a little while until I’d managed to move all the smaller stuff. I ached like crazy, and I was covered in bruises. But it’s done. At least until the new house is built, and then we have to do it all again lol!
But I’m not even going to think about that right now. I’m just going to enjoy living in this new place for a while. I have been wondering where I can take outfit photos here, and I’m still unsure because there’s nowhere as nice—or as private—as my favourite spot in the old house. Bummer. I shall have to work my magic and find somewhere suitable, because I’m not too keen on having all eyes on me whilst taking photos!
Oh, and on top of all this, it was our 24th wedding anniversary the other day too! We had thought about going out somewhere nice for dinner, but in the end, I just couldn’t face it, so I cooked Michael his favourite vegan lasagne instead. Plus, we still need to track down the best places to eat vegan food in the Algarve. So far, whenever we want something special, we have to go to Lisbon. So, that’s another thing I’m planning on writing about—the best spots for vegan food in Portugal. So much to think about!
When was the last time you moved house? Did you have to go far? Did you have the craziest of times too? And, if you’re local to me, do you have any vegan restaurants to recommend? Please let me know in the comments.
