Gorgeous weekend

The husband whisked me away as a surprise this weekend. We went to Marlow, a small town near Buckinghamshire. We had a lovely time. Thought I'd share some pics though regretably didn't get any of the two of us, so you will have to make do with swans! The hotel below is where we stayed.

Lovely Vid

Just saw this video on A Cup of Jo, so beautiful.

It is from the same campaign as these images by Tim Walker
So stunning, and beautifully Parisian.

Today I wish I was doing this...

Blissful colours, blissful sunshine, blissful summer days.

...and speaking of coffee...

Have you ever come across Puccino's coffee shops? They have got some of the funniest, cheesy (but it's funny), packaging and advertising ever. Saw these images on Flickr.

I love coffee

I adore a nice steaming cup of coffee! I just stumbled across this post, on Christoph Niemann's Abstract City blog, all about this man's love affair with coffee, check it out it is really funny.

Hot air balloons

Just saw this video on concrete and honey, isn't it beautiful

Just one...

One picture, one poem, one song, one quote, one item of clothing, one place and one Disney princess. Saw this on Peonies and Polaroids and decided to give it a go...

One picture...

One poem...

i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in

my heart)i am never without it(anywhere

i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing,my darling)

i fear

no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want

no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

ee cummings

One song...

One quote...

"I have loved you with an everlasting love..."

Jeremiah 31:3

One item of clothing...

One place...

Phew, that was hard, particularly the item of clothing... impossible for someone as indecisive as me! Sure my answers would be entirely different tomorrow or any other time, but for right now, in this moment, these are the ones!


Ok, i just joined Twitter. Not sure if I am loving it at the moment but i was interested, so better give it a chance! Just slightly worried it will mean more time spent on the internet, and less time sorting my life out ie. my mess of a flat, which resembles this pic at the moment it is SUCH a mess!

I feel like the girl in the black dress on the left, looking down on a tip!

The husband has gone away today for 5 days away TO GO CRAZY driving around this thing.

I am so soppy, that I hate being away from him and miss him already! Saw this just a minute ago here
