I don't really know what to say....


My little plant has sprouter and it's looking kindof weird!!!!

See, I told you Aliens exist.

I've lived in this flat for about 18 months and I'd never noticed this on my kitchen window before - D pointed it out to me last night - so now I have my own pet alien.

I don't mean to blow my own trumpet but......

So I took up crocheting just over a week ago so that I could make a cupcake scarf as I couldn't afford the one my friend showed me and here are the results - yes all I can see are the mistakes but all in all I am pretty proud of myself ☺

The man in the moon is looking down over all of us.

My camera doesn't really do this justice - to the eye the moon was so much clearer - but still pretty spectacular I think!

It was a grey Friday morning

Not the way you want to start the day - or end it or anything really - grey - drizzly and dull and cold and it's the middle of August darn it - but there was this lovely splash of colour peeping over a wall at me!

Stich one knit one drop one bitch one

Oh yes! Go me! The start of my cupcake scarf - I took up crochet one week ago to try to create this very thing - so far so good!!

A hard day's work

Sorting out the costumes at work - it's quite amazing to sit down and think about who has worn these costumes and some of the amazing costumes that I get to see everyday.

Whether we have weather...........

So it's summer and it seems a long time since we had a day without rain - but I'm sure that it's not really true - it's probably been a few days - but the trees are starting to shed their leaves as though it is autumn - but there aren't the pretty colours that you get in Autumn.  And something about this leaf really caught my eye - the vein structure.......

Take the bull by the horns

So this picture disgusts me.  Look at all the blood on that poor bull.  Recently one part of Spain finally banned bull fighting.  Shortly after during a fight a bull jumped the barrier and ran wild in the crowd.  They got what they wanted didn't they? A fight and the death of the bull at the end!?!!??  Quite often the bull is drugged up anyway - hardly a fair fight now.  Nothing should be hurt for money - we are meant to be a civilised race.

Tea pots and handbags - what more does a girl want! Yet another lovely window display in my town.

Looking through the keyhole

This window display always makes me think I am looking into someone's house.  It's a lovely little workshop for all things to do with crafts - and soon they are going to be opening it as a shop too - just in time for me to take over the world with my crochet!

Beep beep

I've never seen this driving around just parked up near where I live - it's pretty cool I think - kitted out quite nice on the inside and an insult to Jeremy Clarkson on the back wheel arch - or whatever you call it!

Here comes Summer.....temporarily.

The odd glimpse from amongst the clouds - or at least that is how it feels at the moment - where are the blue skies and the lovely blooms! You get the odd moment where you can see lovely shots like this - then it's back to feeling like autumn.  So many trees are shedding their leaves already - it's quite odd.

Rarrr


There are so many cool window displays round by me that I think I could probably do a blog just about them, but, instead the photo of today is these two littled Dino's.

Knit one, stitch one, drop one oh bugger

So, I've always envied people that can knit - especially those like my mom who can do so whilst watching the tv and chatting. Watching me knit is painful. I was bought some knitting when I was off recovering from my operation and I just kept getting my mom to 'show me one more time please' until it was pretty much done.....so I decided to take up crochet - I got my kit on Saturday evening......the results are not so pretty but then I suppse we all have to learn and I can't expect to crochet up a storm straight away!

Supposedly I am an adult but sometimes there is evidence to say otherwise





But whatever the verdict there can be no denying that I serve up tea in style ☺

Orchids everywhere

Seeing as my little orchid has behaved itself so well, we bought it a companion - it's a huge beast of an orchid - not that you can really use the word beast and orchid together but.....it's got two stems and about a billion flowers on it.....ok, maybe it's not got quite a billion on it but it's lots and lots plus 1.

Vivienne Westwood I think I love you but if you gave me these I'd know that I do

Gorgeous gorgeous shoes - I wanted them so bad but I had to put them back - darn it!

Its all hearts

Not just another cool shop window display, or a cool little sign in general - but this is for the lovely O's cafe - best Thai food I've had! Scrummy.

A day in the life of my purse is probably pretty tiring right now.

That really annoying thing happened to me again today - you know that thing - when items jump off shelves and into your hands and there is nothing you can do but buy the item, otherwise you would get done for shop lifting - well it's been happening to me a bit just lately and today I ended up with this bag because of it!  I think it's one of the best things!!

You can't beat natural beauty!

Whilst chatting to my family I looked up and saw this lovely rainbow displayed on my living room wall.  All natural colours - lovely!

It's like my little baby

My Orchid has re-flowered for the first time and I am like a proud Mom.  I've had a few Orchids before that never wanted to play again after the initial bloom.  Yeah I know, small things amuse small minds and all that ;op

How much is that puppy in the window........

I am seeing some of the most lovely shop windows near my house lately - so I thought I'd share.  I love this pretty design on the windo - followed by simple dummies showing off the clothes and a very intriguing collage behind.  I make collages all the time so am a little biased but I think it works really well.

Fresh fresh fresh

One thing I do love about where I live in London is the amount of fresh, healthy and sometimes locally grown produce.  Sadly due to where it is - it's not so cheap.....but the colours are amazing and the vegetables and fruit taste how they should.  One of the supermarkets here even has it's own roof top garden where they grow a lot of their own vegetables to sell.  I think it's something everyone should look into more and more, not only is it good for the environment, it's also good for the pocket and you'd be surprised at the sense of achievement you can feel when you serve up some of the vegetables you have grown yourself.

I think he stole a piece of my heart

And here he is for one last time.  This little fella stole my heart and has left me with some very fond memories.  It's made me see just how good for the soul a dog can be, and makes me all the more upset about the way some people treat such lovely creatures.  Anyway - sad circumstances look like they will be leading this little one to be rehomed.  We'd take him in a flash, if only landlords were not so daft about letting people rent and have a pet.  So long buddy.....hopefully only temporarily.

Friday 6th August 2010

As I left the house for work I was amazed at just how sunny it was after the last few days of it being abit cold and rainy - I really was blinded by the light as I came around the corner of my street - the sun looks huge - probably because it is - but it almost made it look like a giant ball of light in the sky - again - kindof because it is ☺

Pinker than Pink

So I got up at the crack of dawn and was out of the house by 645am to go to the Post Office to pick up my presents from Lisa - the pinkest of parcels greeted me, and I greeted the contents with a big girly squeal!

This is how the news in my head is every day!


The free morning paper had a little bit of a difference to it today - you can read most of the headlines - and it was being sold for 25 magic beans!  Welcome to my world!

Late night caller

Look who popped round to see us last night....he wouldn't sit still so getting a picture was interesting but I half managed it!

Monday, 2 August 2010

Today my friend Jess took me out for a birthday meal.  Then later on my friend Lorraine brought over a certain puppy dog, but these cute birdies deserve a moment of fame........

Happy Birthday To Me

I've been to this park loads but only just spotted this lovely stone lady - her dress in stone probably weighs about the same as the originals!

Saturday 31 July 2010

So it's my birthday weekend and I am having a lovely time - and then this made the day - it must be about me right?! ☺
