I’m actually excited about this one. In April, the goal is to try something new. And it could be something easy like try a new food or visit a new gallery, but I want to push myself a bit more than that. I’m not sure what it’s going to be yet, but I’m toying with the idea of going to an event organized for single people like a cooking class or something. My friend Victoria suggested it the other day, as she really wants me coupled up.. And I though it would kill two birds with one stone as not only I would meet new people (maybe not necessary the one) but I could also try something new. So I will let you know next month..
Last month’s goal was to have the best birthday. If you read the March post you would have known that my birthday fell on Mothers Day this year and therefore I’d be spending it alone. But I must say I’ve had one of the best birthdays in years!
Three days prior to my birthday I spent in Paris and I had absolutely amazing time. It was my 6th time in the French capital and I enjoy it more each time I go. Because I’ve done most of the touristy stuff now, I can just stroll around, wander the beautiful streets and stumble upon things and watch people go about their lives and just enjoy. And that’s what I did. I’ve got lots more to tell you about Paris in upcoming posts and of course I have plenty of pictures too so stay tuned.
I came back on Saturday evening before my actual birthday and shared a bottle of Prosecco with my friend. On Sunday I woke up quite early, skyped with my parents for ages and went to Harvey Nichols for a facial at the Dr. Thomas clinic which was unusual but great and I will do a review of that at some point too. Afterwards I went for a stroll around Notting Hill and for lunch at my favourite Farm Girl Café. If you haven’t been yet, put it on your list.
With my belly full I walked slowly to Kensington Palace enjoying the beautiful weather and London in bloom. In there I visited the Diana exhibition which I highly recommend. It featured quite a few of her outfits and sketches of designs she created with designers and lots of photos of her. It was very inspiring (she dressed so well) and quite emotional (her story is so sad..) If you get a chance go see it. I may go again because even though it’s quite a small exhibition it really is good.
So even though I’m 36 and single and most of my friends are in relationships or married with children I can tell you I am enjoying my life right now. It’s not perfect (is it ever?) but I’m travelling to places I love and exploring new cities and doing whatever I want and yes it would be nice to share it with someone but I’m having fun nonetheless and that’s what life is about.
Are you single and happy? Have you ever spent birthday on your own?
