Have a Chillaxing Weekend

Hey there! Happy Friday. I am *so* tired. I need to save up my energy though, because this right now? This feels like the calm before the storm.

I have one more rehearsal with the Royal Orchestral Society before our performance of Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius next weekend and my part is not even close to being ready! It doesn't help that I'm sitting second desk, first violins (on the outside) which means that there's added pressure since I'm very visible to the audience! Tickets are still available here, and I'd love to see you there!

The weekend after that, I'm throwing a Christmas/birthday party at my house and then the weekend after that, my family arrives from the U.S.

Then the weekend after that? We're off to Paris and Bruges.

Then it's Christmas.

And breathe.

So this weekend, we're visiting friends in Tunbridge Wells but we also spontaneously booked a stay at a teeny tiny B&B in the middle of nowhere. I plan to sleep in late, go for country walks, and eat a delicious homemade breakfast before reading for hours in the farmhouse that the B&B's located in.

Wherever you are, I hope you get to take some time out this weekend to relax before your "storm" hits.


  1. Have a great staycation Jaime, sounds like you deserve it! I'm feeling the same. Next weekend I'm moving house, the weekend after we have Christmas/moving parties, the weekend after we're heading home for Christmas and then it's non-stop until the new year. Here's to a relaxing weekend for us all!
