Happy New Year friends, may the 2011 bring you lots of new adventures and good times! Thank you so much for stopping by here over the past year - you guys are truly awesome! Have a great Eve and see you next year!
Sorry I've been AWOL for a while; I've been on my own with Oomoo for the past week so it's been the same old story of me not having time to post. Anyway, we finally got some snow on Friday (which is now melting away fast) and on Saturday, when more than 15cm of it fell, the hubby had to drive to a recce, which on the way there took 45 mins and on the way back took 6 hours! Oh joy!
Last weekend we met up with friends for Sunday lunch in Chiswick and afterwards, with full bellies, we walked along the Thames. You know how I go on about how much I love how diverse London is; well, don't these pics prove my point ;) I love "going away" in this city. Hope you're having a good week!
Went down to check out the James Turrell exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery on Friday afternoon with the Oomster. As it was the last day there was a long queue to see the main installation, but despite the heat (I thought galleries are usually cold!) and the 25 minute wait, Oomoo was a trooper and waited with me patiently (mainly thanks to the lady in the last picture who happily responded to his flirting :) ). I've seen Turrell's work a few times before and it's much more of an experience when you can enjoy it on your own in your own time, instead of as a group and for five minutes only, as it was this time. Still, it was nice to get out of the house, so I ain't complaining! Anyway, I snuck these pics for you, hence the weird framings. Happy Monday!
The sky was quite something yesterday. Unfortunately we were rushing around town xmas shopping, but every now and again we'd catch a little glimpse of one hell of a show. I wish I'd been somewhere where I could have seen it all properly! Have a great weekend folks!
Some more frames from that film that snapped in half. I opened the camera when it happened hence the light leaks on the first two; it's actually quite a nice effect!
I'm not one to normally advertise on this blog, but the mother of a very dear friend of mine has made some crocheted blankets that she's selling. Click here and have a look!
A couple of weekends ago I had the great pleasure of bumping into fellow blogger Melanie whilst out for a walk. I've been a fan of her blog for a long time, so when I recognised her there was a strange moment where blog life and real life crossed over. It was like seeing a famous person and then feeling that you really really had to say something to them (which I've only done twice - to Andie McDowell and David Thewlis when I was a teenager and I'd just moved here. I soon realised it wasn't the done thing, and now I ignore famous people when I see them in the street just like everyone else!). Anyway, we arranged to meet for lunch on Saturday and I had such a great time I didn't really take any pictures!
Hello there! I didn't mean to disappear from here this week, but we all came down with colds (Oomoo's fever lasted 11 days in the end!) and I simply didn't have the energy to post. It's been a very cold week here (like most of Europe), but London was spared with just a light dusting of snow whereas some parts of the country got as much as six feet of snow! Anyway, we're on the mend now (and sleeping much better too - five wakes-a-night tending to the Oomster when you're ill yourself is not easy let me tell you!). Hope you've had a good week and that you're having a nice and cosy Sunday!
(I seem to have gone exclamation mark crazy today)
