The past month has been a little crazy. I spent 4 weeks of it ill and had some super stressful times at work. It’s over now and we’re on a break for Easter holidays but it’s been a little depressing. The head teacher of our school announced she’s leaving so now my future there is a little uncertain. We’re all a bit confused about what’s going to happen when she’s gone.
In happier news we found somewhere to live. It’s not as exciting as buying our own place – but we’re going to rent a flat in Chelsea. We’re going to have to pretend to be posh now. We don’t move in until January though.
The flat was owned by Chris’s grandma, and the tenants in there currently haven’t done much with it – so we’re expecting to do a lot of decorating while we’re there. I bought a home designs journal to help us plan, but I think I might post some ideas on here closer to the time to get some opinions. I just wish we could get inside the flat before we move so we could plan properly /awkwardtenantssuck.
This weekend I decided to (for once) grab my DSLR, and we headed into the city to see what was happening for Chinese New Year.
We started in Trafalgar Square, where the place was decorated with pretty red lanterns and lots of open and slightly damp umbrellas.
The banner in the square welcomed people to the festivities.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the fountains on in the winter before but they looked quite pretty – even if it was freezing!
We walked up towards the gallery to see pretty lanterns, and then walked to Chinatown ^_^
