Days 30, 31, 32 and 33.

Late afternoon visit to Creswell Crags.

Next weekend two of my friends are going to undertake the London to Paris, 24 hour, bike ride. They are both bonkers, but they are doing it to raise money for the charity Scope, which aids disabled children, so mad as they may be, their hearts are in the right place. Anyway, I thought they could do with their very own cheerleader.

My orchid lives!!

My friends wedding invitation!

Day 27.

A very dear friend and neighbour of mine died last summer.  Her house has not been sold yet and the garden she was once so proud of is becoming wild and full of uncultivated colour and life.  It’s truly beautiful.

Day 24.

Fuchsia.  I was obsessed with these colours when I was little.

Day 23.

That nettle is on top of our shed roof.  Pretty sure there’s no point in being a nettle if you’re on a roof.

Day's 21 and 22.

I visited Martha’s Vineyard last summer, it was my first time in America, my first time outside of Europe.  I loved that little island. 

I used to stand next to this wall while I waited for the school bus, the flowers have been cut back in the years since, it used to be one great, cascading wall of pink.

Day 18.

My favourite rose, Anna Ford, starts of orange and fades in to pink, we keep it in a deep blue pot and it looks amazing!

Day 17.

My cousins 3 year olds Frozen cake, at her Frozen party, where everything was Frozen.  In the height of summer.  BECAUSE YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THAT FILM!

Day 16.

Granny showed me this, she couldn’t remember when exactly she was given it, but it’s been typed up on a typewriter, so it must have been a while ago.  Says a lot about my grandparents that my granny found it funnier than my grandpa.  But after all, she was a nurse.

Day 15.

Second day in the new job, slightly less demoralising, I feel like I’ve won several small victories.  What’s even better is coming home to a very pretty little vase of flowers that mum had arranged in my room to make me feel better.  I then knew exactly what my photograph for today was going to be.

Day 14.

Started a new job today, now feeling tired and demoralised, the general public and minimum wage will do that to a person.  So here’s a picture of an anglepoise with a paper hat on.  (note. The anglepoise does not always wear a hat, that would be silly, it just wanted to be a princess today)

Day 12.

View from Pizza Express today.  (This is before the havens opened and I spent the afternoon bailing out my garden and comforting my dog.)

Day 9.

This is Loco, we have no idea what he is, a bit staffie, a bit lab, a bit dragon and a lot optimistic.  You couldn’t ask for a more petulant, smellier, weirdly proportioned, cantankerous dog.  But we love him.  Apparently someone else didn’t as he’s a rescue, but it’s their loss.
