A day in the Kiez

Today we did not plan anything apart from staying in our lovely neighbourhood, doing some shopping and go out for a meal in the evening.
I am please to say that we succeeded!
We done food shopping at the market hall, got the collar of my coat fixed at the tailor, went for a coffee at Barcomi's, browsed the sale at Chapati (found a skirt and a top that I was eying on before), then went to see Denise in the City Market and took home a dress, skirt, top and cardigan I was trying on in November but now all reduced. 
Successful retail therapy, I would say.
Neil had booked a table at La Bionda for 9 pm and we indulged in wonderful Italian food. The fact that my wheat intolerance now excludes Italian produce meant that I had one of their speciality pizzas and the tiramisu!
We were talking about our plans for next year - Rio in March and all June in Berlin, more time on the farm and less working.
Neil thinks I should quit my job if it is not getting better (or they start paying me silly money) and do something I like (photography) and see how it works out, when done properly ....... ! A wonderful thought .... and so lovely to get such a support! I would love to get my life back .... the last 2 years were just getting worse and worse ...... A lot to think about and to properly plan ..... (although I am not a planner at all!!!)

We were home just at midnight and fell to bed stuffed! Not used to such carb loads. But I enjoyed every bite!

My blip is one of the Turkish shops in our neighbourhood, regularly visited by us. Just next to Barcomi's.
