November began as usual with a birthday, the highlight of which being this card from Rhiannon:
The last of the Autumn colour…
Arrived home one night, flipped on the lights and found Neighbour Cat waiting.
After many long and boring months of slowly re-building the post-surgery forearm strength, I finally got back into proper heavy weight training this month! Mondays is the big lifts with Shona, then I do kettlebells on my own during the week. It’s good to feel back in the groove.
There were some eerie, foggy days which made the cold feel kind of glamourous…
Gareth made his first ever loaf of bread and reckons it is much harder than brewing. This loaf had a brilliant crust but a bit doughy inside; Loaf #2 was much better!
At the end of the month the Christmas lights were switched on in town. I switched the Christmas lights on in the flat, handily still up from last Christmas.
This month I wanted to keep a better eye out for Everyday Life details, but so much of November was poorly lit, rain soaked and/or and me sitting a desk gawking at a computer screen. It was totally mundane. So in the spirit of transparency and possibly an antidote to perfectly manicured house blogs, I’ll share this photo of our dinky rental kitchen/living room that still looks like we moved in yesterday (those beer boxes are storage, not beer; due to cupboard shortage in flat).
