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
Anything that happened before Thursday evening has been relegated to a lesser part of my mind to make way for the SNOW! How we realised it was snowing is a bit random as we didn’t think that it would settle or even snow, despite the forecast, as it had been pouring with rain all day.… Read More What I did this week, Y2W2: Making the most of the snow
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 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!
My sister gave my brother an art lesson on Tuesday which resulted in these two pictures on the fridge. The first one is my sister’s which contains an unintentional portrait of me. Apparently the whole family is in my brothers picture but we are just behind a hill. On Wednesday my brother and I went… Read More What I did this week, Y1W43: One day in Bath
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 feel like we’re further through the year than 34 weeks but I might be wrong. I guess I’ll find out when I get to the end of the year. Yes, I know I could work it out if I wanted to but I’d prefer the surprise. On Monday I had my first clarinet lesson… Read More What I did this week, Y1W34: Not much happened
