Kim. People often ask what I'll be doing down there, but quite honestly, I go to London to visit my friend, and hang out. And if that means a weekend spent in our pyjama's then hell, book me the next train. It's nice to have the option to do the tourist things, but equally for me, I like catching up with my favourites, hanging out. That's what matters.
On Friday night we headed to Honest burger to load our stomachs with the best cooked chips and a few cheeky cocktails (and burgers of course!), before heading to the Ice Bar for something different to do. In all honesty, we were a little disappointed with it as it wasn't really what we expected - but hey, we tried it and still managed to end up tipsy. We tottered back to Kim's where we curled up and caught up on the past month before falling into the best sleep I'd had in weeks!
There is a reason Kim is one of my favourites, and part of that reason is because she makes my favourite breakfast - waffles! We spent Saturday morning drinking orange juice and tea, discussing the other species and laughing over failed dates, whilst in our pyjamas.
If there's one thing you take away from this blog post it's this: next time you're in London, and you're walking.. Play The Pink Panther Theme Tune. I guarantee you smile. And if you're anything like me, you'll laugh that loud, that you don't even care if people look at you funny. If only they knew...
This is Me
Katy Mitten is feeling pretty content right now, because she changed her attitude and outlook on life. Katy Mitten stopped worrying so much, she stopped putting so much pressure on herself on what she could and couldn't do and decided that you cannot simply please everyone.
She started to wear fitted dresses, and things that made her feel good, to boost the body that she was given, and she grew her nails and wore lipstick every day, because she could. She had her annual hair cut, and accepted that she was her and took her independence and kindness in her stride - accepting that these things, can be an attractive trait.
Katy Mitten said yes to everything, not from guilt, but because she wanted to and Katy Mitten filled up her diary leaving herself little time to just be. But she enjoyed this, she liked being around people who liked being around her. And Katy Mitten liked making people laugh, and buying her friends presents and flowers and just being a friend like she should. She liked drinking tea in bed with them and asking how their day had been.
And she started doing things for herself, what she wanted to do, because she knew that her own life was about her, and what she wanted from it. And by taking a step back in certain aspects of life, brought good things her way.
Katy Mitten liked this January already.
She also likes drinking wine in the week, accompanied with the soft sounds of Angus & Julia Stone, Oh Wonder and Damien Rice playing through the speakers whilst curling up on the sofa and getting lost in thought with Runkle.
Katy Mitten likes doing all of these things because they make her happy, and they make her realise that those things, the simple things that make her happy, are whats important.
They're what matter.
Doing what she simply enjoys, what gives her warmth in her heart and a friendly smile on her face.
Because that's what life should be like.
"The best things in life are not things."
