Hoje estou de saída para Abrantes. A minha avó materna veio passar o Natal connosco, e agora é a nossa vez de passar o ano em casa dela. Vai ser uma noite como tantas outras e, quando dermos por isso, o ano já começou em plena força. Quer passem uma noite muito sossegada, como eu, ou cheia de energia, espero que cumprimentem o novo ano com um sorriso e um brinde a novos começos! Até breve!

Today I'm leaving for Abrantes. My maternal grandmother came to spend Christmas with us, so now it's our turn to spend new year's eve at her place. It's going to be a night like many others and, when we barely notice it, the year has started in full force. Whether you spend a quiet night like me, or one filled with energy, I hope you say hi to the new year with a big smile and a toast to new beginnings! See you soon!

Na semana passada, uma visita forçada à Segurança Social de Setúbal (é sempre tão agradável, não é?) deu-me um óptimo pretexto para revisitar o centro da cidade e relaxar um bocadinho antes de ser atendida.

Last week, a forced visit to the Social Security in Setúbal (it's always so pleasant, isn't it?) gave me a great pretext to revisit the city's centre and relax a little bit before heading back there. By the way, Setúbal is my district capital, and living so close to Lisbon makes me forget about it a little.

Depois de 3 dias de consumo alimentar impróprio para cardíacos e/ou diabéticos, sinto que todos os poros da minha pele estão bloqueados com açúcar. Agora é tempo de desintoxicar. Espero que tenham tido um óptimo Natal!

After three days of food consumption that's inappropriate for diabetics and/or cardiac patients, I feel that all the pores in my skin are blocked with sugar. Now it's time to detox. I hope you had a great Christmas!

Slow down and be merry!

Espero que tenham um Natal feliz, saboroso e bem preguiçoso! Até breve!

I hope you have a merry, tasty and very lazy Christmas! See you soon!

Inspiration Monday

Olá a todas(os)! Espero que a vossa semana tenha começado bem! Sim, eu sei que hoje não é segunda-feira, mas ontem fiquei sem internet, portanto vamos fingir que é. Aqui estão as minhas inspirações para esta semana e espero que gostem! Entretanto, o Inspiration Monday vai fazer uma pausa no Natal (alguém acredita que já estamos quase a celebrar o Natal?!?!), mas volta logo de seguida.

Hi everyone! I hope your week started on a good note! Yeah, I know today isn't monday, but yesterday my internet connection broke down, so let's pretend it is. Here are my inspirations for this week and I hope you like them! In the meantime, Inspiration Monday is taking a short break on Christmas (can anyone believe we're almost celebrating Christmas?!?!), but it'll be back right after that.

She's the one

Ganhei coragem e avancei. Ofereci-me uma Rolleicord VB num estado de conservação perfeito, completa com a bolsa de origem. Ainda a carrego com mil cuidados, receosa de feri-la nalgum ponto sensível. Sinto-lhe o peso e a magnificência da construção com toda a reverência do mundo. Espero que este seja o início de uma bela amizade.

I got corage and went for it. I offered myself a Rolleicord VB in a perfect state of conservation, completed with the original leather case. I still carry her with a thousand cares, afraid that I might hurt her in a sensitive place. I feel her weight and her magnificent construction with all the reverence in the world. I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Tenho estado ausente, mas ocupada e quase sem tirar fotografias. Ontem ofereci-me a melhor prenda de Natal de todos os tempos, e tem sido um prazer olhar para ela. Amanhã mostro-vos!

I've been absent, but occupied and I barely took any photos. Yesterday I offered myself the greatest Christmas gift of all times and it's been a pleasure just looking at it. I'll show it tomorrow!
