Yes, yes, I know. In this ocassion my monthly series is very delayed.
I bet you even thought I was not posting this month (and to be honest I was about to consider it, but I finaly managed to find some unexpected spare time to do it, after all).
The reason is my lack of luck, in other words, October has been a terrible period.
I mentioned I got sick at the very beginning of the month, and as fool as I am, I thought things could just improve afterwards.
The week after I started feeling better, I had to go back to my old intensive schedule at job. I believe I already explained a former coworker just left without notice, which basically made me to cover her on periodically extra-long working days.
And that´s exactly what my inmune system needed at the moment: little sleep and twelve hours a day away from home.
Lucky me, huh?
So, once my replacement period was over again, the weather decided to cooperate against me too. Last weekend we had a sudden temperature change, with a 20 centigrades descent in 24 hours AND SNOW.
Because, hey, why not?!
And you guessed, as soon as my inexistent defenses noticed that, I got sick.
While I write this, I have already been enclosed for five days (my employee decided I urgently needed to have a proper rest, God blesses her) and I believe I won´t feel better in at least two or three days more.
Well, I suppose I got the pestilence or something, and The Gentle One enjoys by saying I will probably be the patient zero during the zombie apocalypse.
Yeah, laugh as hard as you want, but I am not totally sure that´s not happening.
And now, I think I´ll better show you what I did in September.
Just to stop thinking about how much time it will take me to spread the Z-virus all across the world...
Books, books and books!
Last month I discovered there are many discount book stores sparsed all through the city,
which literally means you can get half a dozen of brand new books for ten euros.
So being a little bookworm (and sharing my life with another one), I could not help mysef and just gave up to my bookaholic tendences.
Apart from the Wordsworth Classics I already showed to you I also bought a good haul
of historical volumes.
The haul included an architectonic volume about English manors, an early 20 th century fashion history and a little Britain monarchy encyclopedia.
I am more than happy with all those, as they were a very light and interesting read as I was sick.
September was the month I chose to re-watch Downton Abbey season 4.
I have been a big fan of this series from the very first season, which I discovered as a student when I was working as an aupair in London some years ago.
It looks like a century ago!
Anyway, as they were releasing season 5, I decided it was a good idea to pamper myself with long tea and buscuit sessions while watching the Crawley family to walk their way.
This is an exercise I recommend to anyone who care about history and good stories.
I carefully crafted all my accessories and planned with militar accuracy my outfit for the autumnal themed tea party I was attending here in Bucharest.
Nevertheless, some work duties popped out just the day before, so all my plans had to be cancelled.
Because, OF COURSE.
Well, well, I haven´t enjoyed too much this last couple of months, but I hope you did it better.
So tell me darlings, how was your September?
