Yes, I'm going bananas! It has nothing to do with minions, but with a crazy ear infection that's been chasing me for the past month. The different kinds of pills ease the pain but make me nauseous and I don't feel strong enough to run (so frustrating!). And overall I feel a bit bleh, despite long nights of sleep, vitamin boosts and a caring husband.
But on the other hand: there's a lot of good stuff going on. Our new bathroom is FINISHED! And it was sooo worth the 18 months of mess: it's pure luxury to take a shower in a real and heated bathroom and I can't wait to take some decent photos and share the final result with you. Also, two restaurant-letters were entirely renovated & painted and attached to the wall of the bathroom and have light (triple yay!). And in the past few weeks Igor and I have been outlining some very exciting Urban Jungle Bloggers projects for 2016. It included a daytrip to Holland by plane, which felt a bit crazy, especially with an ear infection, but it was a very fun experience. We will tell you all about it soon!
And on a more personal note: Robert and I planned our first 2 trips of the new year. We are staying here in the Oise… and we're going to Helsinki!
And I'm also going bananas for REAL bananas… banana trees to be exact. In our AirBnB garden near Valencia grew a gorgeous and big banana tree with 2 banana bunches and a beautiful inflorescence (above). Every day a dark purple burgundy petal would fall off. A few years ago I had a little banana plant, but Wally liked munching on the leaves and totally destroyed it. Maybe I should try again and grow some in the greenhouse? They have this instant tropical vibe, right?!
Do you like bananas? Or banana plants? In any case, I hope you are well and not too stressed out by any Xmas preparations!
