 We've had plenty of on-shore/south winds days which means for some mysterious reason our internet shuts down because it can't handle the winds (?). Really. It is the weirdest thing. The days are super hot and the mornings are filled with dew, as you can see from our sun-deck chairs. 
 The sarongs are being washed daily as we sweat so much. I love these practical items of clothing.
I am working on my necklaces every day now, trying to finish them before I head back to Europe. There is always a bit of worry when I make them: What if people don't like them? Will I be able to sell any? Did I choose the right style, and so forth. I put a lot of effort and soul into making my little pieces and I do get attached to every single one of them. 
 My cats are giving me constant entertainment, Day-Day is trying to get to grips with chasing the incense smoke, which is hilarious to watch,
 while little Misty prefers chewing and chasing on my toes. It is always heartbreaking when we leave and each year it gets harder and harder. Even though I have some wonderful people looking after my cats and feeding them I miss their cuddles and companionship. 
Lately I've even had time to sneak in a cheeky Margarita or two over at the resort whilst watching the sun set. Magic!

my favourite time of day

 No filter, 
no fixing
and even more stunning in real life.
Thought I'd share with you one of my favourite sunsets.

The days here on the island is slowly coming to an end.
I am desperately trying to hold on to every single moment, to cherish every single second but the days seem to go by so fast I don't even know what day it is anymore
The surf has been surprisingly good and I have spent a lot of hours in the "blue room" this month, having surf buddies is an extra bonus and gives me the incentive to get out there on my board even when my muscles are begging me to stop. Not a lot of surf happening in the Thames so I am pushing myself to the limit.
The after surf hours are spent in bed for na-na naps and then working on my necklaces.
The sun is getting stronger every day and midday it is so hot out there you can hardly move without breaking into a sweat.
I love the afternoons now it gives me heaps of inspiration.

New Boots

I got new boots in Bali.
Not necessarily to be used here on the island on the beach but soon we are headed back to London where the weather is far more colder!
Does it sound weird when I say I actually miss the rain and the cold now. 
This last week internet has been down due to on-shore winds, (really) and it is getting hotter and hotter.
