Dear laser eye surgery,
Thank you for changing my life. This is amazing.
PS. Sunglasses are awesome, who knew?
See other Friday Thanks here.
July wasn’t too difficult – I did cheat a little on the ‘no books / no clothes’ rule but I’m giving myself a pass on that one. I bought some leggings for the gym since none of mine fit me (hence why I need to go to the gym ;) ) and I bought an ebook at a reduced price that was going back up to full price before the end of July, so, y’know, technically I saved money? That’s what I’m telling myself, anyway ;)
I didn’t manage to get the Treehouse stuff finished – I think I just underestimated how draining it is to learn new stuff like that, and I found that I couldn’t absorb it as quickly as I would have liked. I did, however, organise my clothes and have managed to keep them organised all month – hurray! We also smashed the house to do list, managing 13 items when all I was aiming for was 5. So much pretty!
Onto August! Four of these are 31 for 31 related – I really want to try and knock off some of the easy ones early, to give myself a bit of breathing room at the end of the year! :)
Thank you for being the job I never thought I could do, for proving me wrong on that score and for giving me a reason to work from my pyjamas 80% of the time. You’re the best career move I ever made.
At the beginning of March we threw our first “Secret Supper Club” event – 6 friends, 7 courses, £5 per head. It was so much fun that we’ve done it again a couple of times since then and each time it’s been an absolute blast.
I’m a big fan of food, as is Q (we have our own cooking blog together in fact), and we’ve been to a couple of supper clubs before so hosting one of our own seemed like the next logical step for us. There have been a few niggles along the way (hello to the person who complained to the council about us, btw) and we’re not sure if we want to do it as a full time venture yet, but it’s definitely been a pretty awesome adventure so far :)
(I have “throw regular secret supper clubs” on my Life List, but I haven’t quite figured out yet what counts as regular. Any suggestions?)
If you like food, you’ll probably like this. (If you wanna see the kind of things we cook you can see the menu from the first event here).
We’re planning the next one for the 17th of August. If you want to come (and you should!) then you can sign up here and we’ll send you some details out :) This one is extra special as all proceeds from the night will go towards the head shave fundraising, which means you can feel extra virtuous while stuffing your face. Perfect.
