I wrote a post last year called signs of spring so in an attempt not to copy myself I came up with this idea while staring at the Thames on Monday. A black headed gull. This was what sparked my idea and is probably not something that most people notice. In the winter black headed gulls… Read More Unusual signs of spring
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
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 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
I did write this post on Monday but the internet wasn’t working so I couldn’t upload photos and then I just forgot about it until today so here we are. I had an important audition on Tuesday so I can’t really remember the first couple of days this week. I think the actual audition went… Read More What I did this week, Y1W37: Solitary tree climbing
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
I rehearsed for my local orchestra nearly every day this week. The program was pretty tough so the practice was definitely required. Due to so many people not turning up until the concert day itself I think the concert could definitely have gone better but is was a great effort. I played principle clarinet in Shostakovich 5… Read More What I did this week, Y1W28: First night of the Proms
