Just a place for me to gather my thoughts

Sometimes staying home alone is the best policy

In September, Jan’s choir took part in an event called “The Westside Festival”, a musical and culinary event that took place in and around a square in the western part of Karlsruhe. One member of the choir was involved in organising the festival, which is how the choir came to be involved in the first place. The “headliner” (so to speak) of the festival was a group calling themselves “The Westend Girls” and because those who were organising it weren’t actually able to watch the performance – being too busy dealing with organisational matters – the group are performing again, just for those who were involved in arranging the festival. T – the choir member who was one of the organisers – managed to get the rest of the choir invited as well, so that’s where Jan is as well. Apparantly there was some space for extra people (although it would quickly run out if everyone brought a plus one), so he invited me to come along. After much deliberation, I decided this morning that I didn’t feel like it. I was tired and didn’t think I’d be in the mood for staying out late.

This evening, waiting on the platform to come home. I was pleased I had decided against going out. It was cold, my train was delayed and every now and then a gust of wind would drive a flurry of snow into my face. Not pleasant! So instead of listening to a group of singers on the opposite side of town, tonight shall consist of pyjamas, nice hot tea and my latest cross stitch project. Sometimes, staying home alone is the best policy!

Tea anyone?

  1. I love being home alone, the pottering, the eating what I please, the watching a girly movie and the pjs :) enjoy

  2. I’ve picked bed over out way too much lately. This weather has made me an antisocial bum.

  3. If I didn’t have a child I would probably hibernate during the winter. My bed is the only place I want to be when it’s snowing out.

  4. Agree! Hope you enjoyed your home alone evening – and the tea :-)

  5. There is nothing like being at home alone! Especially with a nice book & a warm bed with no one to disturb you…Bliss!!!

  6. Yep, nothing like a good book and a warm bed :-D

  7. Oh I’m jealous of the Emma Bridgewater! I think one of my life goals might be to gather a decent black toast set – yet another thing to remember for when I win the lottery… Hope you enjoyed, tea fixes all things!

    • I have my grandparents buying me the set ;-) They got me this teapot and the mugs for Christmas a few years ago, which is the whole reason for the photo actually – evidence we were actually using them. I could NEVER afford Emma Bridgewater by myself!

  8. PJ’s, tea, a good book and an empty house is bliss!!
