Since coming back from holiday, it’s taken me a while to settle back into my blogging routine. Would you believe that I had written most of my blog posts back in January, and just queued them all up? I must have been on something!
I’ve been enjoying ‘not needing’ to blog. But beginning to miss this place. And what better way to get back into some sort of blogging routine, than with a Project 365 recap?
It’s April. The last recap I did was for January. So, this’ll be for February and March. And rather than all the photos, I’m being choosy and just picking some of my favourites. If you do want to check out all the photos so far they’re up at my Google+ photo album, and I post some sporadically to my instagram. When I remember.
Without further ado, here’s February and March’s highlights. (In reverse order. Because.)
Just like that, Project 365 2014 is over! December’s rolled around and been out incredibly quickly. That’s what happens when you have a non-stop month. Standard for the month of Christmas and all.
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.
Day 232 Working through the pain of gastroenteritis with a trip to the gym. Surprisingly, it worked.
Day 236 P is for Pie.
Day 237 Indian chai is getting subbed in for my usual morning coffee. Healthier, right? Maybe. Not.
Day 238 The kitchen’s an important space in our home. We spend a lot of time in there. All of our own doing! I just wish we had a gas stove instead of this useless electric crap. I’m almost getting to grips with cooking on it. Almost.
Day 239 Just hanging out on the balcony, what with the weather having cooled down sufficiently, where it’s not suffocatingly humid in the evenings now.
Day 240 I did one of these at our old place, so figured, needed to do one at the new. Not nearly as interesting sadly.
Day 241 I give you a hella creepy art something or other. Including semi-detached left arm.
Day 242 It’s another Saffron breakfast. Hands-down my favourite place to eat out in Bahrain. Great coffee, amazing breakfast with bread, beans, eggs, all so good!
Day 244 Bills, bills bills. Keeping track of finances like some sort of grown up.
Day 245 Just a blah day with a bit of a blah photo.
Day 247 Apologies, the last few days haven’t been all that exciting.
Day 248 There is a lot of cool art dotted around Adliya. Here’s a big ol’ mural on the side of a building.
Day 249 Sausages, mash and gravy. Wine not pictured. One of my favourite home made meals.
Day 251 Packing again! Though, I’m not going this time :(
Day 253 Just my Vans.
Day 254 Watching the jet skiers and speed boat owners enjoy the start of their weekend.
Day 255 Now this is what you call a menu.
Day 256 Sunset hits the buildings just across from us almost perfectly.
Day 257 I’m reading an actual book now. Made of paper. A physical book. It’s been a while.
Day 259 It’s that elusive creature, the Bahraini cloud! (Yep, think my lens needs a clean…)
Day 260 Really enjoy having the gym to myself. Usually every Thursday night, there’s not a soul in here.
Day 261 Bit of an adventure on Friday night while looking for a place called “Box It” for dinner. Found it!
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.
Day 244 Feet up, it’s a lazy Labour Day bank holiday.
Day 245 “Make tea not war” ~ Monty Python. Too true. Trying to drink more green tea. Make use of the mountains of it we have here.
Day 246 Self-portrait. Of a sort.
Day 247 Slumped on the sofa is where you’ll find me.
Day 249 Weekly squash sessions are brutal. Forgot how much I enjoyed it. And how much of a good work out it is.
Day 250 Olives, Negronis, Negroni top ups and the latest episode of The Knick to watch. Can’t get much better than this.
Day 251 Excuse me while I have breakfast for dinner. It looks, BAD I know. Honestly, it was delicious.
Day 252 Apparently this is the best dish I have ever made. And it’s made once every week for that same reason.
Day 253 From the top down. Directly down, from the balcony.
Day 254 Big ol’ package from England. My amp and my brother’s, no longer in use, speakers! WOO! I miss my speakers :(
Day 255 It’s the kind of evening when you can’t be bothered to cook and all you want is a bit of Nandos.
Day 256 Learning a few magic tricks. Proud to say, I was a quick learner.
Day 257 Butternut squash mash, home made gravy and sausages? Yes please!
Day 258 Life is indeed, good.
Day 259 Gym-ing it regularly now. Contemplating a self-portrait, but it was far too disgustingly sweaty.
Day 261 As hard as I try, I just can’t skip my morning coffee. Morning coffee or morning chai. The chai is dependent on when the OH wakes up.
Day 262 All the remotes, we have them now. Digital TV, TV and amp. Evening of films, G&T and vegging. Not bad.
Day 264 Went to eat lunch at a restaurant called The Yellow Lemon today. Though unsure what other colours lemons come in. Incidentally, was not the only restaurant called “Lemon” that was visited that day.
Day 264 BIG breakfast today. Eggs, mushrooms, potatoes, chai and most special of all – PANCAKES.
Day 265 Two years yesterday. And looking forward to many, many more.
Day 268 Been a very, very quiet week. All the same, the weekend can’t come soon enough.
Day 269 It just dawned on my that my sneakers are red, white and blue.
Day 271 We do get some pretty epic sunsets in Bahrain. Not a cloud in the sky and it’s stunning.
Day 272 Feeling a little upside down today.
Day 230 Wallowing in the pits of being ill. Huzzah! :/
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!
