Looking up at Kew

Don't you go walking around looking at your feet - you might miss something bigger than you.

I love you Kew

After living in London for 24 years, the city is finally starting to grate on me. It's too big and too crowded, and I'm getting tired of it. A move to the countryside is not an option as we are city people through and through, and I'm sure this fatigue is probably more due to it being February than anything else. I hate this month so much! It's only redeeming feature is that it's short (it should be even shorter if you ask me). Last Sunday we went to Kew Gardens, and we usually don't bother going in the winter as there's not that much to look at. But being there I realised what a tonic it was, for all of us. The kids love it and we grown ups get to catch up, as we all walk about 10km, without complaints. If we ever moved away it would be one of the places I'd miss the most.


Autumn '16 recap

Strange thing we saw in the V&A courtyard during the London Design Week. I don't remember who it was by.

During a leaf-throwing fight, which is like a snowball fight, but with leaves. We need more snow in this country.

The boys having a cardboard tube duel. En garde!

Enjoying feeling small under some trees in Kew Gardens.

We weirdly all have the same head size in our family of three. Very handy when you forget your own hat.

When you ring the door bell at Halloween and you get more than you bargained for.

Went to space in early Nov. It was so cool! Or maybe this was Guy Fawkes night... You decide.

Uncle and cousin and Oomoo snuggles in the new Turbine Hall installation.

Facing the fear and doing it anyway.
