It’s only when I am somewhere alone that I can really explore it. I can wander the streets, looking up to the top floor of the town houses, wondering who lives there. I can imagine the lives of the man and his son looking at travel books together in Daunt chatting together in French. When I’m alone I can spend… Read More London Alone
Most of this week was spent visiting my friend in Wiltshire. She left for Borneo for three months on the 12th so it was my last chance to see her before April, which doesn’t seem that far away but is apparently three months. I managed to get sunset train rides both ways which was beautiful… Read More What I did this week, Y2W1: 24h in Wiltshire
It’s always a funny week between Christmas and New Year but I feel like this year wasn’t as bad a usual. Various cousins came around on Boxing Day and we went of a very long walk. We went down to Suffolk on Tuesday for my Grandmother’s birthday and some winter beach walks in Southwold and… Read More What I did this week, Y1W52: Not such a funny week
I really thought that something had gone wrong with my week counting but I’ve just looked at the calendar and it’s worked out! A definite proof that miracles happen 🙂 They put the Christmas tree up in Trafalgar Square on Monday and although it wasn’t lit it still looked cool – and arrived from Norway… Read More What I did this week, Y1W48: A cold snap
Tuesday was a very exciting day as I had my driving test and I passed! No idea how I did it, the examiner was in a very lenient mood I think. At least I didn’t forget to put the hand break on and roll backwards into the examiners car like my grandmother or forget the… Read More What I did this week, Y1W47: I passed my driving test!
I didn’t have a terribly exciting time for either of these weeks so I thought I would squash them into one in the hope that I can find enough things to talk about. First, this photo of a Beech tree which I took for my screen saver. I always have a seasonal photo behind my… Read More What I did this week, Y1W45&46: The last of the autumn colours
I didn’t seem to take many photos this week. It has got a lot colder since November’s arrived, although it hasn’t frozen enough yet to kill off the remaining dahlias and sweet peas. It was my sister’s birthday on Thursday but we celebrated on Saturday on the usual style of presents and cake.I made fondant… Read More What I did this week, Y1W44: One year of blogging!
I’ve got to that point of the week and that point of my horrible cold where I can’t remember anything that happened last week except by looking at my sparse collection of photos. My educated guess is that in-between looking at ’16 photos only siblings will understand’ on Snapchat and stalking Taylor Swift on Instagram… Read More What I did this week, Y1W41: Portrait gallery and La Fille Mal Gardée
I think I’ve failed slightly at taking photos this week. I went to loads of cool places and didn’t take any photos because I was a) far too busy catching up with friends or b) nervous about auditions so not thinking about taking photos. I did take this one of dahlias in our garden which is… Read More What I did this week, Y1W39: Museum of Childhood
Monday was a bank holiday – cue my father fusing every plug in the house while trying to hang a picture. I did some bedroom rearranging which involved moving every piece of furniture around until I decided that actually all I wanted to move was one bookcase. We also went on a walk past lots… Read More What I did this week, Y1W35: Midnight Boris biking
