Last night I got to leave my bedroom to see an actual person. Okay I live with my husband and it hadn’t been that long since I left the house, but somehow not seeing my friends for weeks made me feel like I’d been in hibernation. Last night P and I went to one of our favourite cafe/restaurant/bars, a place name Milgi and my tummy is still full. I am yet to find a single person who has been to Milgi and not loved it. The place is a treasure trove of art, creativity, and interior design genius. I always forget quite how much I love the place, and how happy being there makes me. I was annoyed with myself for forgetting to take my digital camera. I wish I could have taken some photos of my favourite parts of the place. Instead I was stuck with my phone camera, and since I am still using my iPhone 3GS I don’t have a flash. Oh well guess it means I’ll have to go back soon, eh?
Aside from the pretty interior and lovely atmosphere, Milgi has some of the best food I have ever tasted. The restaurant is completely vegetarian, something P and I would have turned our noses up a couple of years ago. I wouldn’t have imagined P loving bean burgers when we first met. The place has changed the way we look at vegetarian meals though. Last night I tucked into one of their legendary nut roasts, and for pudding cinnamon doughnuts with chocolate dipping sauce and cream. All made on the premises.
Enough about my love of food though and more about the person we had dinner with. I’ve mentioned M a couple of times on here, but probably not enough considering she is one of our best friends. She’s the sort of person who you always makes you laugh until your sides hurt. The night as a whole then was definitely worth braving the snow for (which Edith, my mobility scooter, handled wonderfully by the way) and the whole day it has taken me to recover. The night refreshed me a little so I feel a bit more motivated to get on with some university work, that’s a story for another post.

You may remember way back when I wrote a blog post looking for one day projects to keep me occupied, well today I decided to go even smaller and start doing five minute photography projects. These projects will consist of running around the flat taking photos on a specific theme. The idea (obviously) isn’t to take amazing photos which will one day sell for millions, the idea is to get me being creative. These projects are something which (1) bring me happiness without completely draining my energy, which is good for my depression; (2) they keep my creativity alive, which is good for my writing; and (3) give me something to get out of bed and do outside of my degree work (I plan to continue them when I am well enough to begin working again) without taking much time away from my studies.
I was inspired to start these projects by two bloggers which I will write about in due course. For now, I just want to quickly share my very raw and unedited photos with you. For me, this blog is a fun way for me to showcase what I’ve been up to but the last thing I would want to do is put readers off if they’re not very exciting for you to look at, so if you would like me to share more photos pop a comment below or tweet me, and if I don’t get much response, I won’t share future projects on here. Sound good? Ok, here’s today’s photos:
Famous opening line of which novel? Ten points if you guessed ‘Pride & Prejudiced’.
- I LOVE Austen. What better way to read her novels than with her little face looking at you?
- Quick quiz- who wrote all of these books?
- K-K-K-Katie, K-K-K-Katie, you’re the only K-K-K-Katie I adore…
Smile for the camera!
This was sort of an accident, I didn’t mean for the Queen to be poking through an ‘m’ but sort of worked out quite well since she is your Majesty.

Whenever I am feeling a little blue, one of the things that never fails to cheer me up is The Pig of Happiness by Edward Monkton. There is a book, but you can also watch a video of it. Check it out below.
Hope that brings a smile to your face too. Have a great day!
