It’s just about that time again where I like to take a look back at what has actually transpired during the month. This February has been a good one. I feel like we’ve just been cruising through without much trouble and even though the weather has been a crazy back and forth between sunshine and snowfalls, it’s still very much been an enjoyable time.
We’ve done a lot of things, seen a lot of things and tried out a bunch of new things. Some of which included going to the Black Panther premiere! Sean and I had never been to a premiere before so it’s safe to say that we were wowed by all the people and the lights! Sean also made an appearance on The Late Late Show, an Irish television program that is also one of the longest running talk shows in the world and it went so incredibly well. We flew out on the Friday, got to the studio that evening and left the next morning. It felt like a mini holiday and despite the fact that we ended up cheating on our diet
quite a bit A LOT, it really helped regenerate us both, not only physically but also mentally. Getting to break away from our busy schedules at home was energizing in a way. It was just, nice.
That’s why I’ll take today to write about some things I’ve truly been enjoying during this past month. It’s just going to be a small list of things. Some might be a bit unconventional but they have honestly been a big part of my day-to-day.
First up is trains. This has been our most preferred method of transportation during the month of February. It’s just so handy! I’ve always been sort of scared of the British railway system. It always seemed very complex and complicated to me, so I never tried it though February had other plans for me. The Black Panther premiere was on the eighth of February and we decided that it would be easier (and more affordable) to grab a train to London to see it. Besides it would be good to finally make an effort to understand the whole thing, right? There were two of us as well so what could really go wrong? Turns out – A lot apparently! It was a messy first trip and we ended up making a bunch of mistakes but we did it! We pulled through and faced our fears! It was a big success, so much so that we have begun using the trains regularly now. Quite proud of that short venture ha ha!
Second on the list is sweet potatoes. Now I’m gonna warn you right now, this list is going to involve a lot of food related items! Mainly because we switched diets at the beginning of the month so now we are a little more lenient with what we eat. That of course includes the sweet sweet bliss that is sweet potato mash. I’ve been loving it! Though it’s not something I am allowed to grab a huge portion of, it still makes the usual, boring chicken and broccoli evening meal, just a little more enjoyable.
Thirdly we have soya milk. I told you it was gonna be heavy in the food department. Soya milk has been my huge eye-opening discovery this month and I’m baffled at myself over not deciding to try it out sooner. I’m simply in love! It the only type of milk I consume at this point! Even in coffee it’s a god-send! Sweet and delicate – YUM!!
Next is sunshine. Remember I mentioned that the weather hasn’t really been able to make up its mind about whether it wants to stay in winter or move forward to spring? Yeah well, the few days it decided to send a little sunshine down to this cold cold earth was pure heaven. Walking through Brighten on those days made me miss spring and summer so badly. I yearned for days where I could walk outside without a jacket and sit on a patch of grass that hadn’t been turned muddy by rain. It’s been snowing in Brighton today though, so I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer for those nice warm spring days…
Lastly we have a show that Sean and I have been investing a lot of time in as of late called “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” with Jerry Seinfeld, which is currently available on Netflix. It’s just a fun, chill show that does exactly what the title implies: Jerry invites different comedians out for a cup of coffee and takes them on a ride in some sweet old cars. They talk about pretty much anything and everything and it feels very much like you get a peek into what it’s like to hang out with these legendary people. So if you are looking for a good fun show to watch I definitely recommend it!
