You may have noticed that I haven’t written very much lately. Or if not, that what I’ve written lately hasn’t been very good.
It’s not because I haven’t been doing much lately – I’ve been doing tons, too much in fact. I want to tell you about drinking wine at Taste London, going to the polo with some girlfriends (veh good), watching Bridesmaids (farking funny), schlepping in the mud at Latitude, eating giant crab at the Fish House near Chichester, moving to Brixton Hill with The Chef with a garden filled with palm trees and hammocks. But I just seem to have lost my mojo lately and I don’t want to write lots of posts that will bore your pants off just for the sake of it. This is what I’ve always said.
Truth is, I’m sort of, by mistake, happy. I’m sort of where I want to be, more relaxed, less frustrated, less of an urge to constantly try new things and question everything. Life is slowing down and I like it. I’m still a bit of a stresshead, and curious and looking over my garden fence to see if other’s gardens are greener (you’ve been where?! I want to go!!). I’m still keen to try new places (next on the list = Franks Cafe and Campari Bar in Peckham) but I’m feeling a bit more red wine with friends, local restos with candles, sort of thing than I was previously. And it will be nice to go out for a bit without annoying my friends by taking lots of photos.
I have a lot to thank this blog for. It’s got me into writing, I’ve met a ton of awesome people, I’ve been invited to go to brilliant events and restos, and it led me to The Chef. Its made me more positive, more open-minded, healthier. It got me into cycling to work, going to the theatre, eating out at every available opportunity. It made me realise who I am and what I really love.
So I’m taking a little break, a little HPL hiatus, and will write only when I’m inspired and feel I have something to tell you that will be interesting and inspire you too. I’ve got some great guest posts to keep you occupied in the meantime.
Its not farewell but see you very soon – and get thee to a beer garden forthwith, god knows how long this sunny spell’s going to last xxx
