1. On Monday, there was a beautiful fat ginger cat in the garden all day. Every time I went outside, though, it would run away. My pet withdrawal since moving to London means that I’ve been quite obsessed with any animal that gets within spitting distance of me, so I kept trying to lure it near me. Turns out, cats don’t like pasta. They do like messing with my head, though, as it got THIS close and then wandered off.
2. We put our room up for let on Gumtree! So, if you want to live in London for a month between August 25th and September 30th, have a looksie.
3. I have no idea to dress for the hot weather we’ve been having this week. I went out on Tuesday wearing wooly tights, cut off at the knees, a denim skirt, a t-shirt and a cardigan. I then got lost walking round London (I do that a lot).
4. I also have no shoes that are suitable for walking in that aren’t trainers. Currently I have two cuts on my left heel, a blister on the top and bottom of both my left and right big toes, blisters on both my little toes, blisters on the back of my right heels and no skin on the balls or heels of both of my feet. One of my heels even appears to have a little crater in it. It’s not nice.
5. Saw this in Primark. Who votes that I buy it for Garry and make him wear it everywhere?
6. I’ve seen The Dark Knight Rises twice now. Slightly in love with Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle. Completely in love with Michael Caine. Even more completely in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Won’t talk about the film any more in case there are people who haven’t seen it, but EEEEEE.
7. What did you think of the Olympic Opening Ceremony? I was completely unbothered by the Olympics until I saw the ceremony. I thought it was utterly brilliant and spent the majority of it either crying or laughing. I love how all my British friends completely got it but everyone I know that’s not British, including my German housemates, admitted that it was completely crazy and although they loved it they had no idea what was happening.
8. I also love that it was funny. How many other nations would be brave enough to make fun of themselves to the rest of the world? Kudos, Danny. By the way, this is how we celebrate big events in my house — by buying themed food.
10. So, I guess that lovely sun is now over? This is what I looked like after walking from Trafalgar Square to the Southbank
How was your week?
Love, Amy xx
