Friday figments and photos

A week epitomised by highs and lows.  
 
Walking to work on Monday: I was sad, seeing these birdie footprints: made me glad
 
 
Taking down the tree for another year: I was sad, packing the precious ornaments from loved ones: made me glad.
 
 
 
Back to the instruments of facial torture: made me sad, but a Luxemburgish chocolate treat: made me glad.
 
 
Slapping through the rainy streets: made me sad, Watching a silent film version of The Phantom of the Opera, with unique live harp soundtrack and freshly popped popcorn at St Barts Pathology Museum: definitely made me glad.
 
 
 
  
A friend who is conflicted: made me sad, but catching up and laughing with them: made me glad. 
 
 
An accidental TimTam spotting. Not only that but 4 different varieties: made me glad.
 
  
A stressy day: made me sad, a touch of gluten free gourmet burger testing: made me glad. 
 
  
Sorry about the Big Bang Theory references. They make me glad. (SorryI'mnotsorry).
 
Have you got a touch of the January blues? Or an anti-January-blues weekend planned?

  1. I've been alright to beat the January blues, but it's already getting away from me! Did your christmas trees actual branches fall off?!

    1. My Mr Kiwi really gets the January blues bad, so it's a matter of keeping him cheerful. I totally agree, the days are flying by! It'l be Christmas again soon, wahoo!
      Well, the whole tree fell over a couple of times, but the above photo was cause by us when we took the tree down. Sad times.

    1. I know, right :D We have conducted extensive research on the Timtams vs. Penguins subject...
      I hope so too, I hope my friendly listening ear was helpful.

  3. I did not know they were Big Bang references but it was a great read either way!

  4. You know I loved the BBT references! I love those little birdie footprints. It seems most people here are either irritated by the pigeons or completely apathetic towards them. I love to watch them - sometimes their mannerisms remind me so much of our hens and I have to resist the urge to try to pick one up! Ha!

    1. Hehehe, I thought you might! Yeah, the city pigeons are rather gross, but I quite like the country/wood pigeons. They certainly are characters - have you read the blog 'Brian the Pigeon'? http://pigeonblog.wordpress.com/

    1. In a small corner store near my work - but the most reliable source is Tescos in Hammersmith. Weird, no? http://www.adventuresofalondonkiwi.com/2013/04/kiwi-treats-tesco-hammersmith.html

  7. Just caught up with your blog - always keeping the best last - and I love how you've included a certain little Luxembourgish chocolate piece! ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Taking down the tree always makes me sad too - but also special in a way, because you have to savour the time it's up.

    And timtams - I'd love to try them, where were they? I've heard so much about them!

    1. That is very, very true!
      Timtams are in in a few verry strange places; Tescos Hammersmith, Selfridges, some Kiwi cafes... and there have been a few reported sightings I need to check out as well!
