I have not found my new groove yet. Still experimenting.
I had a fantastic weekend. I went to the Brixton Academy to see Groove Armada - one of my favourite bands. It was their last ever appearance. I hope they were fibbing and they play again.
We stayed here at The Church Street Hotel. It has a cuban mexican feel and is quirky and fun. Frida Kahlo kitsch lurks in every corner, bathrooms are tiled with beautiful bright tiles and the bedrooms had Green & Blacks' chocolate and colour washed walls. I loved the irony of a honesty bar in Brixton (you wrote in a little book what drinks you had). We had dinner at Angels & Gypsies which consisted of tapas and mojitas - well it was worth pretending we were in Mexico or Cuba. Cocktails at a bar. Then a DJ set at Brixton Academy, followed by an amazing show by Groove Armada and then another DJ set until 3 am ish in the morning. Finally, I am getting to live like an adult!!!
The hotel staff were great. I had had a pretty difficult week which included three trips to the dentist for the same piece of work to be done again and again, a puncture etc etc. I rang to check my booking as I wasn't convinced that due to the run of things going a bit Pete Tong that they would have my booking. The man told me in view of my bad week he would upgrade us so muchos gratias to him.
We had a lazy lunch at Covent Garden, steak and Rioja, and watched a very funny magician. A weekend of very happy memories.
Oh yes, one goal achieved this weekend = to dance in public and not feel inhibited. Impossible not to dance to this wonderous music. Thanks for still reading everyone xxxx
On Thursday night I had a dream about lots of things but one was about a purple envelope but I couldnt read my name and address on it properly. Look what I came home to on Friday afternoon. My surname is spelt completely incorrectly and she just couldn't remember my address and had to hand deliver it. The letter was just from a friend but how spookily accurate was my dream.
Coloured shot glasses, cake stand and necklaces
The beautiful colours of these glasses and beads have really captured my eye today.
They are grouped together in a collection on table in my sitting room.

As you know, the tag line on my blog is 'Lets go fly a kite'. I googled that in a dream dictionary and it said the following, which I really liked:-
To dream that you are flying a kite indicates that you are well-grounded despite your high aspirations and goals in life. You will reap the benefits of your hard work and determination regardless of the challenges faced in your current task. On the other hand, to dream of a kite may also epitomize your spiritual or innocent consciousness.
