Hello everyone. Yes, I am still here. I have a project working on and it's taking up a lot o my time but it is also a lovely distraction that sucks me in. What can I say? I'll try to post more.
In the meantime, I am reading Kinfolk Magazine. I love the diversity and theart and culture share. You might too.

I love it when a design studio does both modern and traditional interiors. UK's Chester Jones uses some lovely pieces of furniture. It's a shame they don't include more pctures of their bathroom designs in their portfolio- no kitchens either.

It's my birthday amd I don't mind that the number's creeping up to 40. What I do mind is 20-somethings running circles around me with urban slang...not knowing what the hell people are talking about because I am not in sync with the latest lingo. So I was chilling by the pool at Vytautas Minseral Spa in Birstona and reading a book when I came across "netflix and chill" and it made me wonder: at 38 years old, just what I else don't I know...? While growing up, I hated it when my aunts couldn't relate to my life and I really don't want to be able to communicate or even understand Hazel when she is a teen. So, how to keep up...or do I need to keep up? Do I really need to know what "netflix and chill" means at the age of 38? My feeling is yes. Right up until about 55 I want to know what it all means. You?
I had a lovely weekend at the Spa. Such a charming and unspoiled town is Birstona. It has the prettiest, little houses, a beautiful forest, a yellow dude statue (maybe Dali...lol), exercise equipment in the forest and a river running through the town.. And mineral water. You have to go!
I spent the weekend in mud wraps, Himalayan-type and mineral water saunas, jacuzzis and massages. We bicycled through the forest and along the lake and enjoyed the cool breeze and sun above (btw I now know I am allergic to the European sun--I break out in red, swollen rashes. It's why I am covered in a blanket). But it was lovely, I couldn't ask for a single thing more for my birthday. It was so lovely.
