1: The beach! You saw my post ‘Sur la Plage‘? Isn’t it just beautiful! I’m so thankful to live a bit further away but with fresh air, the temperature is rising in Tbilisi so the dust and smells are much stronger. I forgot to mention that there are wild lizards at the beach. Wild lizards. Georgia also has wild tortoises but I’m yet to find one to befriend.
2: My sweet’s televised interview at work. You can see him in the photo above, isn’t he great? He’s been working so hard recently and Monday is the big reveal so it should pay off for him. Plus he’s so handsome as a representation of Georgia to the EU…
4: Starting my own website – finally! It’s been in the air for a while and I feel like I’ve finally managed to get my idea refined and ready to start. If you haven’t seen my previous post, I’m advertising online Skype lessons for teaching English. More details are here if you or a friend might be interested!
5: Visiting Erika and baby Michaela yesterday. We were supposed to paint but Michaela wasn’t too keen on the idea, maybe in a few months would be better. It’s so lovely to see how quickly she’s growing. Plus babies are always so positive to be around!
6: The shmoogs of Tbilisi always cheering me up. No matter how irritated I get, as soon as I see a dog here I relax. They’re just so happy and cheerful. Street dogs are probably my favourite, they have such character and are so intelligent. Do I write about dogs too much?
7: My new coat from Zara! I’ve been lusting over a classic trenchcoat/mac-type-thing for years and I finally got one! I can pretend to be Holly Golightly now.
8: I had an essay epiphany yesterday and managed to hit the nail on the head. It’s so satisfying when that happens… Stay tuned!
9: A Ukrainian girl in Tbilisi contacted me to be the arts writer and speaker for her girls-only group she’s forming for expats in Georgia. Quite exciting and it means I can have a more active roll in the art scene here. Next week we’re filming a TV show for it…
10: The blogging community! For ages I’ve been meaning to jump into this world and I have to say this last month has been so fun. I love chatting to you and getting to know you all, and reading about so many topics and musings is so inspiring for me – thank you!
What have been your highlights this week? I hope you’ve had a glorious weekend!
