Back from my holiday to Crete? Unfortunately not. My passport that I sent off to be renewed didn’t turned up, so I never left.
Sadz. But I am getting a refund/compensation for the whole passport shenanigan, so at least that’s something! PLUS in a month’s time I am off to France for two weeks…Disneyland Paris here I come wahoo!!
Instead, I took a different kind of holiday. A complete break, away from work and the computer, and instead doing things and spending time with people I love…
…like lots of trips to my fave place in Londres (Camden town!) with this BEAUTIFUL girl who has been my bestie since we were five:
is it just me, or do I look exactly the same now as I did then?!
Lots of shopping done…and Gabby I know you appreciate it when I take weird photos of us;)
…and regular trips to what in my opinion is the best vegan bakery in London:
Cookies and Scream rocks. Awesome food, great ingredients, lovely people.
Their brownies are out of this world. Gabby (who is as far from vegan as it is possible to be ) totally agreed with me on this one.
I have dreams about this brownie
I also went with some friends last week to see the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee parade. We managed to get a good spot and saw the Queen pretty close up!
Prince William+Kate, and Harry:
I’ve also had the time to join in my family’s monthly Ultimate Killer Scrabble Tournament. You don’t have to tell me, I know we’re really cool. My grandma is super-competitive and hates being beaten, which is hilarious to watch!! I am awesome at this game. I’m also really good at being modest
clearly I was a little bit excited over my win…
Running has also been great!! Lots of trail runs, and beautiful views
my fave riverside trail and view
Happy post-run Emma! This isn’t even Instagrammed, just my weird face and quality photography;)
I am starting 12 weeks of summer base training this week, so I’ll have a few workouts and races where they fit in, but mainly building up easy mileage. I’ll talk more about this next post!
And I updated my running wall! This is just part of it now, and it makes me so happy to look at it and see how far I’ve come since last year, and all the exciting things I have to look forward to!
Oh, and last random thing…I got a much needed haircut!! It’s quite a bit shorter, but I like it!
Got any fun holiday horror stories to share? Not passport related, but on my first music tour, a security guard asked me at the airport whether there was a bomb in my viola case, and, thinking he was joking, I said yes (I was young and naive ). He wasn’t joking, and I was thoroughly searched for a good half an hour. Never again!!
For those of you who live in or have visited London, where is your favourite place in the city? Camden has my heart, but I also love where my aunt lives in Kensington…and Hyde Park is awesome too!
Do you keep your race numbers/medals? If so, what do you do with them? I’ve kept almost all of them and stick them on my wall, but most of my friends don’t bother with anything like that!
I’ve missed you all, and can’t wait to catch up with you guys! Not looking forward to tackling the billions of unread items in my Google Reader though haha! Have a great day! <3
