Discovering where you live

After a year of lockdown we thought we knew our area pretty well. Our London suburb is relatively safe especially during the day.

It does have its issues.

If you asked me if I feel safe when the sun sets walking alone, the answer is no.

I don’t but that’s for another time.

Gav always insists I get the bus even though it’s just a 15 minute walk from town. Since lockdown and Covid we haven’t been in that situation so exploring our surrounding on our one hour of exercise hasn’t been an option. But apparently our government has laid a roadmap out of Covid.

I hope it works

But I hope more that they aren’t rushing things to take us to a worse place and another winter in total lockdown.

On Sunday’s we combine a weekly shop with our walk and we discovered we have a local Philippine mini market selling spices, meats, noodles and we are thrilled. It’s a tiny treasure trove of good smells and exotic foods. Our wedding food was Filipino and everyone loved it! Adobe sauce is a firm favourite on a roast chicken or chicken wings and now we have the means to try it ourselves.

There aren’t many backstreets off the high street but still it was a lovely discovery. it’s strange to think it been there for years and we never noticed it. We have a mini Asian supermarket in the mall but we don’t often go there unless we are getting meat from the butcher.

At the moment we are exploring the world through our stomachs, trying different cuisines, ordering restaurant food boxes.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
