TMTW: November 2023

What happened:
Olly tuned 40, so we headed to Iceland for a long weekend to celebrate. As we did a lot of the more touristy things when we were there in 2019, this time we did a few more unusual things. And we didn't stay in Reykjavik. 

Instead we headed to the geothermal town of Hverager├░i (Hveragerdi) where we'd actually stopped off before on our Golden Circle tour. But the town has changed a lot since 2019 and it now makes an excellent base if you want a bit more of an adventurous holiday. Blog posts coming soon, but we snorkelled between the tectonic plates, visited The Lava Tunnel, went on a buggy adventure tour and hiked to the Reykjadalur hot springs. All in one weekend!

Back in London, we hosted Olly's family for a birthday lunch at home, I did a brief work trip to the Tate Modern, we headed to the House of Dreams (pictured above), saw Frozen on the West End with two of the niblings, plus got a Peloton Bike+ in the Black Friday sale.

What I ate:
Dinner at Thali Ho (we usually go for takeaway!), brunch at The Table Cafe, the eight-course tasting menu at Myrtle, the best sweet potato shakshuka I've ever eaten at Spinach East Dulwich (below), dinner with the niblings at Wildwood, plus I did the tasting menu at RedFarm. 

At home, from Dishpatch, we had the signature king prawn curry laksa by Sambal Shiok. I also ordered cookie dough from Blondies Kitchen

What I watched:
Finished season 2 of Foundation, watched season 3 of Only Murders in the Building, season 2 of Loki, and started watching season 2 of The Afterparty. Films watched: The Martian and A Haunting in Venice.

What I read:
In November I read 13 books. I only gave a 4* rating to None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell this month. 

How have you been? x
