I have a mountain of work to do yet, I am not nearly as worried as I feel I should be with only about five weeks left till final submissions. I believe it is due to the fact that as Spring is so late this year, it might be middle of April on the calender but outside it looks like February, there are still no leaves on the trees and the flowers have only just started to come out. The clocks have gone forward now and it is so nice in the early evenings now. Today was the Brighton Marathon, I had a pretty lovely Sunday. Car bootie in the morning, lunch at the marina, pub for coffee, sitting on the beach in the sunshine.
I discovered Game of Thrones on the plane home from Singapore. Hannah and I watched six whole episodes of season one, it’s good. Way better than watching a movie. I spent most of today watching the rest of season one and season two, perfect for what was a really miserable, rainy day.
Having left Brighton for two whole weeks, very much-needed a catch up with Brighton lovelies, in the Foundry. Lovely, little pub in the north laines, got a bit sweaty hot at one point and, I know it sounds silly, I couldn’t work the toilet door. It seemed to be locked and I don’t want to be the person that pushes way too hard when the door is obviously locked, so I stood and waited patiently, turns out, the door leads to a sink area, it just needed a big push to get though.
Coffee with Maggie in the Xscape, and a bit of teacher catching up. It sounds so full on what I’m going to have to be doing next year, ahhhhhhh.
Last night of holiday, went to enjoy a Singapore Sling at Raffles. Took my new candy strip jacket out with me. It really has been a lovely trip.
A really good attraction in Singapore, inside the Botanical Gardens, is the Orchid Garden. Have been the last few times I’ve been in Singapore and it’s still a nice place to spend a few hours. It’s not air-conditioned so it is super hot, but there are lots of pretty flowers to look at.
Went to Gardens by the Bay, visit to the top of the vertical gardens. Whole place, like something out of Narcissa: Valley of the Wind. Lovely gardens and structures, the bigger green houses are a bit expensive to go inside. The Supertree Grove at five dollars for an adult is more reasonably priced.
