The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XVI

It's Sunday Brunch time. Which means it's already been a month since we moved to London. Which means that time is going to have to slow right down. 

I mean, we're just three Sunday Brunches away from Christmas. I'm just going to pause for a minute while you let that sink in. Mmhmm.

Mildly interesting things that happened this month:

Since moving into the flat we've already had two parties. Shoutout to our new neighbours for not hating us. Yet. I assure you we're not normally this wild. In fact, most evenings we're in our pyjamas within less than twenty seconds of coming in the front door. #adultlife.

But yes, two parties. And ignoring one unfortunate incident involving a tub of salsa, an explosion and the side of our sofa, the flat has made it through both unscathed. For my birthday night out we headed to Shoreditch Blues Kitchen, which was such a fun night out. 10/10 would recommend.

Surprisingly I haven't really had time to explore much of London yet, but I did go to brunch with my lovely pal Jenny at Drake & Morgan, King's Cross. The food was great, and the interior was every blogger's dream.

I also saw In the Heights for the second time in two months because it is just that good.

Things that have kept me entertained:

This week I had a lightbulb moment: I can watch downloads from BBC and Channel 4 on my iPad on the tube. Welcome to the 21st century, Laura. Slow claps and all. I'm kicking things off with Fleabag, and as each episode is just under half an hour, it fits into my commute perfectly.

When we were deciding which series on Netflix to watch as a flat, Gilmore Girls came top of our list. I'm loving it, but it's like torture having to wait for evenings when we're all in.

Also, Nashville, aka my favourite show ever, is back. Two episodes into the forth season it's feeling a little slow, but I am praying that it picks up soon.

This month's haul:

As exciting as buying new bins, a mop, a family calendar and dishwasher tablets is, I didn't think you would appreciate a flatlay of all the new living equipment we've had to fork out for, so I'm going to leave you with a photo of the only exciting purchase I made this month.
