100 Days

#53 A full sock draw
#54 Half price vouchers
#55 Running, sprinting until you feel like you can’t go on and have to stop
#56 Any moment on Sunday where you can forget you’ve got work the next day
#57 That corresponding feeling of getting into the stride of things and forgetting about the late Sunday night blues
#58 I literally can’t remember this day. I remember I felt a bit pensive.  So the opposite of that.  A freedom and lack of mental constriction.
#59 Getting excited about a new series of a favourite TV show.
#60 Clerkenwell and the idea of the underground river
#61 Coronation Street.  Occasionally, superbly acted, touching and funny.
#62 Lazy days with wine and some TV
#63 Lentil curry

100 Days #45 #46 #47 #48 #49 #50 #51 #52

It’s been a while again.  I was supposed to do this every day but I appear unable to be grateful/thankful on a daily basis.  Which is quite worrying.

#45 My bird
#46 Pints after work
#47 Dance-offs
#48 Sleeping off a hangover
#49 Jogging
#50 Mad Men (the TV show, not mentalists)
#51 Cotes-du-Rhone white wine
#52 Not having to catch the 150 and 147 home every day

100 Days #41 #42 #43 #44

#41 Fresh sheets
#42 Underworld’s long-meandering synth epics
#43 Garlic mushrooms, perfect side dish.  But only with the mushrooms cooked so they are soft
#44 My new Gaggia Classic oh yeah giggidy giggidy

100 Days #35 #36 #37 #38 #39 #40

#35 Work not feeling awkward
#36 The email situation entering the realms of the semi-manageable.
#37 The snow not halting the District Line
#38 Feeling vaguely happy about commissioning
#39 30 Rock
#40 Being able to buy tongs online

100 Days #28 #29 #30 #31 #1 #2 #3

Hm, I’ve left this a long time. Anyway, let’s pick it up.

#28 I genuinely can’t remember what I did on this day.  And it was only a week ago.  I don’t think I was making memories anymore at this point.  Did I say sleep already?  Well, maybe lucid dreaming because it is a genuinely awesome thing.
#29 I’m going to put Spotify here because I am geninely grateful to them for transforming the way I listen to and am able to access music.  Seriously.  Thank you.
#30 Home cooking.
#31 Friends.  Making NYE better since I can remember when.
#32 Days when you should technically have a hangover but don’t by some freak of intake, timing of sleep and, um, moon cycle?
#33 DVD box sets.
#34 Days where you don’t have to go out to get anything.  Where you can stay in.  And only feel a little bit guilty at the passing of time.  Man, back to work tomorrow…
