Poor little blog... I'm not in a picture taking frame of mind at the moment with everything that is happening right now. Not only is there a lot of house stuff going on, but I've also signed up to run a 10K in three week's time (following Isabelle and Kvitter's brilliant training schedule over at DosFamily) and then there's the usual Japanese homework to get on with. Oh, and being a full-time mum, ha! However, yesterday I went into town and had a quiet little read at Nordic Bakery and then met up with my visiting sister for a short blast of sisterly fun. And I made myself take these as I'm totally out of the habit :)
To say that this has been a good week is an understatement. We finally got the keys to our new home, seven long frustrating months after our offer was accepted. But we hung in there and wouldn't give up on it. Seeing the house again after so long was a bit nerve-racking, but I very quickly remembered why we fought so hard for it. It's going to be great! There's some work to be done on it, so we won't be able to move in until the end of May - but at least it's ours now, eh?! Have lovely weekend amigos!
Quick!! I have some time! And here are some recent-ish Lomo pix! I miss my other film cameras that are in storage (hope they're still in one piece)! I'm finding my Lomo a bit too blurry at the moment! Happy Exclamation Mark Day*!
* I made that up (!).
The blog turned five last week, can you believe it?! Whoah. What can I say? Well, for starters, I can't thank you enough for taking the time and stopping by here in my little space, for the feedback and comments and hellos. It's been so much fun to have somewhere where I can post my pictures and write a few words.
Now, I'd like to ask you a favour. Tell me a little about yourself (age/where you live/whaddyado) - it's been a while since I did this (or did I ever? I can't remember - five years is a long time). If you want to know more about me here's the Q&A we did here a while back. Also, another favour if you don't mind... One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to listen to more new (or new to me) music, and I'm not doing too well on that front. What is your favourite album or song right now? Mine is this; and it's from three years ago (but newish to me!). It makes me feel like a champ when I listen to it while I run - ha!
Anyway. You don't have to, but it would be nice to hear about you! And thanks again for coming here. Here's to another five :)
Finally got out this weekend, after a long week of being housebound. On Saturday a friend and I went to see the Becoming Picasso exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, which was very small and very good. If you're in town, I recommend you go - and the rest of the gallery is pretty great too. The rest of the day was spent eating, looking round in shops and trying on stupid amounts of clothes. A good day :)
Had a clean-up at my desktop the other night, and as per usual I found some folders of pictures that I had gathered to post here, but never got round to. These are all from last year.
I don't know about you, but this week has not been a stellar one... The boys are both ill, spring has sprung off somewhere else and news (supposedly good) aren't forthcoming about our new house. This clip with the coolest 6-year old girl ever is lifting my spirits no end though (via DosFamily). As are these breakdancing teenagers.
Come on March, I'm counting on you to be good!
