The month that was: June 2019

What happened:
Got my hair done, tried to sort my face out (another dermatologist visit. The verdict? Still seborrheic dermatitis; still going to have to learn to manage it), caught up with various friends, and spent 24 hours* in Dublin — which included seeing Fleetwood Mac, supported by The Pretenders, yummy food, a visit to the Book of Kells and Old Library, plus a guided tour of The Little Museum of Dublin (see blog post to find out more).

The second half of the month was all about anniversary celebrations and further concerts — this time at Wembley for Bon Jovi, supported by Manic Street Preachers, and then back to Wembley for the Eagles (pictured above), supported by Sheryl Crow — plus a 5k colour run and a visit to Chartwell.

*OK, it was actually 30(ish) hours, but for the sake of my blog post I made it a catchier 24 hours.

What I ate:
Shout-outs in Dublin go to Tang and The Bakehouse, for a yummy lunch and brunch, respectively.  I tried Harry's Bar and Brasserie in the City of London, which has a fantastic 50% off deal if you order two courses, and the courses are tasty.

Olly and I returned to Blacklock for our favourite Sunday roast as part of our anniversary celebrations (epic, as always; see above), then headed to Gaucho a week later for our second anniversary celebration.

What I watched:
TV of note: Finished watching season 4 of Billions, Chernobyl (brilliant and devastating), The Chef Show (loved it), Good Omens (so much better than American Gods), episodes from My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, plus started watching Parks and Recreations.

Films watched: Murder Mystery, Mortal Engines and Chef. At the cinema: Late Night (average comedy), Men in Black: International (meh) and Toy Story 4 (super cute).

What I read:
In June I read nine books, abandoned reading three books, and listened to three audiobooks: Lethal White by Robert Galbraith, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley, and Melissa Explains It All by Melissa Joan Hart. No books to recommend from me this month.

How was your month? x
