What a difference 10 years can make

I often reflect about the fact it was 10 years ago that I moved to London and think how difference this experience is…. Now it’s not the culture I am thinking about, it’s me…. And well I’m getting older, I’m like a proper adult now.

Let me take your through Sarah’s Top Seven ‘Shit I’m getting old lightbulb moments’.

Why seven you ask? It’s an odd number? Well, cause it’s 9.45pm and I need my sleep as I’m getting old haha.

# One: 10pm WTF

You meet for drinks at 10pm. That’s not a time to start drinking people – if I’m not out by 8pm I’m not gonna…

And I’m not talking clubbing – that’s happens around 1am.

# Two: I considered Crocs (if even for a second)

Okay, before you consider me too poorly – it was only for half a second. I was going kayaking and shopping and saw the store and thought, hey I remember seeing an advertisement t in a magazine and crocs have different types of waterproof shoes now. That does sound practical, maybe I should check them out.

But don’t worry, I mentally slapped myself in the face and kept walking!

# Three: I don’t have housemates and I’m not all that sad about it

When I was in london I had 11 housemates and now it’s just me and I kinda like it.

# Four: I relish when I can start the day with some tidying up

Damn it, it just makes me feel soooo good haha

# Five: I can’t do a Contiki tour (I don’t want to, I just realized I can’t)

Five b, is that I’m now interested in the oriental express – looks amazing!!

# Six: I am finding only having one pair of shoes quite liberating

Now, when I say one pair I mean one pair of each possible type of shoes I.e runners, casual ballet flat, smart ballet flat, wedge, heel, stiletto, peep toe, hiking shoes, thongs, boots and slippers!

It really makes my decision making so much easier.

My shipment comes in a week or two, apart from my blender and toaster I’m kinda doing okay with my minimal living.

# Seven: Carlie is pregnant and it’s not weird

I missed the baby shower, but I have Facebook and wow Carlie looks so radiant and lovely pregnant – looks like a beautiful yummy mummy!

Gone is the little blonde chic in a beauy high dress (um, another one the word beauy looks words, I don’t even know how to spell that anymore!) trying to sell me a ciggie for 50 cents!

Anyways, time to finish my tea (no Horlicks for me tonight) and snuggle up with marley. Night folks

But a few pics to keep the visual people happy!
