The Positivity Wave

Happy Friday! #ThePositivityWave 35

Welcome to today’s Happy Friday! My remedy against feeling down is to make a list of all the good things in my life. It can be anything. Really, anything. The smallest gesture from a stranger can change your day, if you open your eyes. Now, I am a pessimistic and I need daily reminders to look for the bright side. Maybe you are too, or maybe the state of our world is weighing on you. In any case, here’s your shot at some happy things!

The POsitivity wave without c`

This week is special for so many reasons. Big steps, big doubts, big moments of mixed feelings but… Positivity does help!

  • Of course, my first item has to be my move to London. I have an address. A place to call mine. In a country I’ve dreamed to live in for the last eight years. How is it possible? Here’s the view from my bedroom!


  • Friends. The wave of support I have been receiving has helped me overcome the bad hours, the doubts, the ‘I want to go home, I can’t do this.’ You all have been ace. No, I’m not tearing up while writing this. Nope. Not at all.
  • Book event!!! Oh Lord, being able to attend events as if it was just another evening is brilliant! And I was lucky to spend my first London night with some of the best bookish people.
  • Ate my first mince pie!!!! It’s weird, but good. But weird.
  • Weirder! Got to taste a Pig in a Blanket! (see food pic below!) It is freaking good!!!!
  • Meeting my bestie Abbie. We met online around four years ago, and yesterday, we finally hugged each other for real. I smile when I think of how natural it felt to chat and hang out. As if we’d always done it. I’m a lucky gal. (and her sister is adorable, fun, and dead beautiful)
  • Ordered food online. I HATE grocery shopping. Now I don’t have to do it!!! It’s convenient and you can sing along as you pick stuff online, haha!
  • The Tube. I love public transports. Even when everything is delayed and you have to find you way without a GPS! Also, it’s good for the planet. Here’s a taste of the craziness people had to endure last night when many trains were delayed or cancelled! I enjoyed it safely from the first floor xD


  • I ate at a restaurant. A proper restaurant, with people, in central London. And I managed the anxiety… And got a real good meal!!!!!


  • Books. BOOKS. Like books everywhere! In English! I’m in heaven.
  • Found my new favourite cookies!!!


  • Topping up my Oyster card made me smile like an idiot. Another detail that whispers ‘You’re a Londonder’ 🙂
  • My friends’ patience… My poor Luke has to listen to me complain and ask a million technical questions!

I’ve probably forgotten things, but this week has been full so…

  1. Whoop whoop. Welcome to Blighty. Pigs in blankets are one of the best things about Christmas. And Easter: and pretty much every time you have a roast dinner (we aren’t fussy here).

    Mince pies – yak. Sorry but no no no.

    Enjoy London. At least the weather is usually marginally better there than the rest of the UK 😂😂 We’ll have to meet up when I’m next in town.


    1. My Sweet Jen ❤ Reminds me that I must give you my UK phone number! Need to see you when you're around!!!
      I fucking love pigs in blankets now. I want to eat one with every meal.
      Mince pies are weird, I can't make up my mind about them!!!
      Hahaha, the wind is preventing me from breathing but otherwise, it's a lovely weather! xxx

  2. I found you in the comments section of Noriko’s blog and connected with your thoughts about things straight away. I’ve always wanted to go to London. I dream of living there, but since I’ve never visited I can’t take the plunge. I don’t think my husband will approve either. 🤦🏽‍♀️ He’s a wonderful man though. 😊
    I’m a proper Anglophile.
    Loved your post!! I look forward to going back and reading some of your others. By the way, where were you living before you moved to England? Just curious.

    1. Hi! I’m really glad you found this place 🙂 I first came to London last year. It confirmed this was where I wanted to be. Sometimes it has the opposite effect, like when I lived in Japan! It would be fantastic if you could visit! I’m glad you have a lovely hubby! 🙂 I have doggies instead! Anglophile club here!!
      Thank you so much for you fabulous comment. I was living in Bordeaux, France!

  3. I’ve been traveling since November and my blog hopping has been erratic and sporadic and I HATE that I missed this post! Congratulations on your move to London, Meggy💜 How utterly exciting! I didn’t know you wanted to move. You sound so, so happy and I’m thrilled on your behalf🥰
