found in a 1936 copy of ‘Under the Greenwood Tree’ by Thomas Hardy. Love it.
I sorted the wardrobes out over the holidays- even mine. I’m aiming for my Pinterest wardrobe, but it turns out that my real wardrobe is closer to it than I thought. This has come as a surprise. It’s easy to forget how many nice clothes you have when you spend every day pulling on the same [...]
I’ve started collecting the sky. From my doorstep, in my slippers. The sky is astonishingly different every day. It’s a shame I’ve only just noticed. On a completely different note: :: I’ve decided that the end of Google reader is in fact a wonderful opportunity for a fresh start. So, I’m not [...]

The boys had an inset day today, so we headed to a bitterly cold and grey South Bank. The top picture is actually still in colour. We finally went on the Eye (it’s only been open 13 years) and then to the Sea Life Centre. The jelly fish were mesmerising.
