It’s been a quiet November here at the blog and for me personally. A combination of nothing at all happening and then everything happening at once.
For the first couple of weeks I was waiting for the man to come back from his work trip to the States, where he had been for just about a month. So that waiting part can definitely be classified as the quiet part of the month. A few days after his return my folks came over for their first ever visit to Bahrain. And that’ll be the everything happening at once part of November.
So with the folks over there was a little bit of sight-seeing. Showing them what Bahrain has to offer.
Tried to continue the trend, from October, to catch up on films. In a nutshell: Disappointing – Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Don Jon; Twisted – Filth; Terrifying – Terror at the Mall. Watching both Touching the Void and Terror at the Mall did reignite my need to keep watching more documentaries. It’s been so long.
Sadly the end of November has been capped off with a bout of bronchitis for me. YAY! Humph.
Day 263 Chai, milk chocolate Hobnobs and a whole lot of catching up to do on the computer. I know what my Sunday evening is looking like.
Day 264 Sometimes I just cant resist a drop of Angostura 1919 and a big cube of ice. Even on a Monday night. When I should have gone to the gym…
Day 265 Working on my squash game, so it’s only right that I get my own squash racquet.
Day 266 Been mere days since I last took a photo of food!
Day 268 Street art in Adliya. Lots of it dotted around.
Day 269 Chilling with some football and cider.
Day 270 It’s come to this. Taking photos of objects around the house.
Day 271 Me and my new habit – squash.
Day 272 A wee bit of self reflection going on for the past couple of days.
Day 273 Tracks in the dirt.
Day 275 One of those days where all you do is watch movies and have a really, good veg out.
Day 276 Morning grocery run.
Day 277 First trip to the airport for the week. Picking up the man. He’s been away for a little while!
Day 279 Woo! Splurged and got myself a new wallet. The man had to bring it back from the States, so there was some patient waiting on my side to be done. Worth the wait!
Day 280 Second trip to the airport in one week. Picking up the ‘rental units.
Day 282 Rooftop BBQ! (Yes, this is a cheat – I didn’t take this photo. My bad.)
Day 283 Took the folks to see the sights in Bahrain. Of course that means a trip to Bahrain Fort.
Day 284 This rather blurry looking mess of a photo is to prove that it does in fact rain in Bahrain.
Day 285 That wonderful cocktail that is a Violet on the Sky. Yum.
Day 287 The get-shit-done-day turns into the get-stuck-in-traffic day.
Day 288 The day that brunch turns into lunch turns into drinks at sunset. GOOD DAY.
Check out all of this year’s photos so far.
What’s happening in December?
Well, there’s that big holiday some call Christmas where we’ll be hosting Christmas. Planning has already begun. The menu’s not quite set. Soon!
New Years needs some sort of planning. Though, I’ll be just as happy spending New Years with good friends and good booze. Those two might be the same thing…
Anything else that December has to offer will be a complete surprise.
