pirate toes


As we speak my lovely boy is travelling from wales to come visit me and the family, I have a belly full of butterflies, first time meeting my parents so heres hoping all goes well. We have a few lovely things planned, lots of exploring will be taking place, I've promised him I'll take him to the Tate modern as he is a lover of Rothko. I think it will involve a lot of photo taking, eating and holding hands. Being a tourist in your own town is just the coolest thing I think, learning to look more at things you would dash past things you wouldn't care to look at on any normal day. Its nice taking the time to look. Is there anything you would recommend we take a look at in london?

I've made a bed on the floor for him with my favourite pirate duvet, isn't it just wonderful mum bought it for me from a local charity shop for my 21st birthday, I don't think I have ever shared it on here, its pretty wonderful and cheers me up when ever I look at it. 

Also in other blog related news I am taking sponsors again woohoo i hear you cry, ok maybe not, but I am offer larger buttons this time around one size 230px wide more info in my contact section about how to go about acquiring one. All the proceeds I make from my blog as being saved up so I can move away and eventually live by the sea, so its going to a good cause. Thank you for all the wonderfully kind words so far about my layout you are all so supportive and wonderful.

Now to just navigate my way to Victoria Coach station without getting lost, I have been there plenty of times, but my sense of direction and memory are lacking, sometimes I wish I could give my brain a good rinse to re-freash it....

  6. Okay I am so incredibly jealous of your pirate duvet cover, that is just amazing!! The light exhibition is meant to be awesome and I've been desperate to get down to the Horniman gallery! Also I don't know if it's still there but the death exhibition at the Welcome centre is brilliang. Other than that I love taking visitors to London through Neals Yard, everyone always finds it so captivating. Have a wonderful time with your beau, look forward to lots of gorgeous photographs!
