This weekend...


This weekend brought unexpected visitors, a visit to Brantwood and sandwiches on the jetty. I also bought this book by John Ruskin, which I'm very much looking forward to reading.

Tea on the beach...



So, trying to carry on from the last post, after work today we packed up our tea and took it down to the beach to make the most of the last rays of sun.

Messy houses and hazy mornings...

I've decided that, as its summer, I should try and spend as much time as possible outside (when I'm not in the office) enjoying the weather. When you spend a lot of time in an office you get separated from the changing of the seasons and the outside world. To achieve this I am going to try my very best to not mind about the fact the house is messy, or that the bathroom needs cleaning, in fact I'm going to try and embrace my creative clutter - well thats the plan at least!

Hiking and biking...

In an attempt to make the most of the rest of our time off, we've been heading into the great outdoors (trying to ignore the weather). Yesterday we went walking in the Yorkshire Moors, with some really impressive sky's, and today we've been biking in the lake district in glorious sunshine, you've got to love the British summer! It so nice to live close to glorious countryside, it would definitely be my first choice of place to move to...

Tents and boats...

We're home! Had a lovely time... Weather was a bit changable, to say the least, but still a very good time.

Stormy Wednesday...

Lots of storms this Wednesday, hopefully its blowing away the bad weather ready for the weekend sunshine...

to look at other peoples blogs and want their life for a little fraction of a second. These pictures from here (and more here) are really quite amazing...

Testing

Shot with my Hipstamatic for iPhone
Lens: Buckhorst H1
Flash: Off
Film: Ina's 1969

I feel like I've gone over to the dark side, I have succumbed and now have an i-phone. It does mean I can update my blog remotely though, which I'm very pleased about, also explains the odd photo above of the corner of my office!
