Here I Go Again.

4 Jul

Well. It seemed there were no more excuses I could pull out of my ass about my lack of blogging. Please though, remember, I am that girl. The clumsy one. The cursed one. The one who lacks any kind of grace.

At the start of June I received a nasty visit from a flu. I didn’t eat for quite a length of time, which was duly noted by my Korean friends and turned immediately into a positive. “Wow, Amy, you lost your weight”, a few of them cooed. I do, genuinely, appreciate that they prioritize all things vain. If I was left to my own shenanigans I would eat cheese, salt and vinegar crisps, and drink beer every day. This being said, when you’ve just come off a drip at the hospital and your face is an interesting shade of green, you aren’t necessarily thinking about that inch or two cut off your waist. Anyway, no fear everyone. I am back to normal, and have managed to retrieve my little belly I had become so fond of.

Of course, this is me remember. My bad luck doesn’t stop at the measly flu. Oh no no no. After we finished work last week we walked to the local supermarket to get some milk. Us Brits can’t go without a cup of tea for more than 12 hours, and such a beverage requires some dairy goodness. The streets were dark. Very dark indeed. (Am I setting the scene?) My boyfriend pointed out a little restaurant we’ve never seen before, which stopped me from seeing the giant boulders on the side of the street. Boom, knees. Boom, arm. Boom, face on a car and chin on another rock. Of course, we would sue back home. But this is Korea…

I’ve had a bit of ‘body ache’ for almost a week now. And rainy season is in full force on our little island of Jeju. The thunder and lightning was very persistent last night and it does not want us to sleep. So, I won’t show you any pictures of my outfits recently. Instead, I’ll leave you with a pretty picture of Oedolgae, a beautiful place where we spent quite a bit of time before the rain dampened our spirits.
