[Grand Canyon - October 2011]
Thinking about: A weird limbo stage of growing up and "becoming an adult". Now that it is approaching a year since we returned from travelling, I am starting to feel a bit older. (I fully realise that at 25, I am already an adult). I say limbo stage because I don't think I'm fully into that "settled" part of my life (my own choice), and I'd ideally like to backpack around somewhere again (Europe or NZ!). Obviously there are no set ages for anything in life, but I feel like I do fight a constant battle between wanting to grow up and not. In my opinion though, your twenties are for lots of new adventures and experiences that maybe buying a house or having a child would restrict. Let's hope finances will allow another big trip at some point.

Watching: Very late to the party, I have just started watching Game of Thrones and really liking it so far. Can't wait for the last series of Dexter this summer and as always I am still enjoying my guilty pleasure shows, i.e Revenge. Also - I do love a bit of The Apprentice, even if they are all idiots.

Listening to: Next week I am seeing Andrew McMahon and am rather giddy with over excitement, Something Corporate have been one of my favourite bands since I was 16 (Will most likely revert to 16 year old self at the gig). Also still on my commute playlist; the new Frank Turner album, Tape Deck Heart, and some Gabrielle Aplin.

Reading: The Secret History by Donna Tartt, which I am really enjoying. Hoping to start The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle soon. I have been recommended this book many , many times by my good friend James, but never seem to get round to starting it. If you hadn't guessed, I am awful with books, I need to push myself to read more! In terms of blogs, a few of my favourite daily reads are; Rachel Phipps, Betsy Transatlantically & Incurably Curious.

Looking forward to: A wedding & a christening! Next bank holiday weekend one of my friends, Lizzie, is getting married (the first one of our friends to get married, makes me feel like I am definitely getting older!) then Aled's nephew is getting christened the day after. Plus it's a four day weekend for me, so that will definitely help me get through work this week!

Researching: London neighbourhoods. It's rather hard to find somewhere that is relatively safe with great atmosphere, good transport links AND cheap(er) houses. Gosh. We've spent a few days checking out some of the places we are considering. Our move date might be postponed a month, so we don't have to properly start looking till June/July. I am just hoping for a smooth, hassle free house/flat hunt - which almost definitely won't happen.

  3. try looking at South-West London, the journey from here is around half an hour to London and I know rent prices are far cheaper the further south from the river! hope your move goes well x
