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.
Oh hey, November – you’re here already? I wasn’t expecting you so soon. See, I thought October might have been a bit longer. Well, as long as you’re here, stick around, won’t you.
The weather has finally started cooling down! The couple of weeks in October were lovely. Sure, it’s still in the low 30s during the day. But the evenings have been lovely. Nothing better than sitting on the balcony with a couple of beers, chatting the night away.
September. The month traditionally known for the end of summer and the start of autumn. Except in Bahrain where it’s October and still pretty damn hot outside!
The month itself has been business as usual with no major excitement. Honestly, these highlights are going to be a bit dull this month!
July – the month of my birth and my favourite month of the year. Though not because of the birthday. Personally, not a fan of birthdays. While I make every mental effort to think of them as any other day, I usually fail at that. So, it was nice that this year, my 30th was a nice, chilled and overall good day. Scary part of July done!
Why is July my favourite month? I adore summer. July for me equals summer. When it’s lovely and warm outside and you don’t have to wrap up going out. Days are long. Barbecues. Sitting in the park. Of course all of that has changed now that I’ve moved to Bahrain!
As for the rest of the month – it’s been fairly quiet. Except for the whole looking for a new place to live followed by the eventual moving at the end of the month.
Just like that, June is over. I think you can call me settled in my new home. Definitely settled. Got my daily routine going. Even managing to inject some exercise in every day.
What was I up to in June? Well, there were a couple of trips to the cinema to see X-Men: Days of Future Past and How to Train Your Dragon 2. By the looks of my photos, I did a lot of eating. Caught the dreaded lurgy from the OH. Started and am now steam rolling through a rewatch of Battlestar Galactica. Well, rewatch for me, but first time watch for the OH. Which is the sole reason of the rewatch!
