when i started this little ‘ol blog of mine, i didn’t really know what to do or why i was doing it. i was inspired to do something that’s for sure and i just let things take their course, until i found what my groove might or might not be, but most importantly what i was really comfortable with and made me happy.
well some of them…
this morning i left home, dropped ronnie at breakfast club and headed into work. pretty normal day so far. then about ten minutes down the road the traffic started to slow and slow and then it just stopped. for the next two hours i sat in traffic. just sat there, no moving to be had, nope not an inch. burst water main apparently. for a whole 45 minutes i sat in my car, engine off catching up on work emails. this church was my view.
i’m afraid folks, this rain is all my fault. i dared to think that spring was on its way. i thought this thought only for a split moment. i spied some crocus tips come through the lawn, they made me smile and the thought of the days getting longer and warmer entered my mind.
so then it rained
sorry my bad
i bought some white tulips to recover from the cold dreary rain

half term and what to do? well luckily for us we are very close to london town, just a hop skip and a jump. yes i know we live in london, i know, but for some reason it doesn’t really feel too much like “living in london” where we are, so we get the best of both worlds and therefore going into london always feels just like that, going into london!

a day on the southbank
i’ve been on quite and black and white trip this week, so when walking in shoreditch and you come across such colours to feast your eyes on, it’s hard not to take notice and of course take a few photos.
i’m a big fan of graffiti and street art, not the mindless scrawling of nonsense mind, but the honed and outrageously fantastic skills of some of the artists is mind-blowing. the colour, the scale can simply be breathtaking. let me share some gems from chance & ebor street in londons shoreditch E1.
i took a few snaps yesterday, snaps of our sunday, sunday snaps. they were of my boys. one big, one small. i was working on some black and white photography for the better photo project week 7, well i got a little carried away! i shared some of them on instagram but i love them so much i thought i would share them here too just in case you might have missed them.
