a country girl

*me and marcus went to london today with my parents. we were lucky the weather held (currently warnings for 90mph winds) and it was even not too cold. but every time i go to london it makes me realise how happy i am that i live 'in the sticks'. i hate the crowded tube trains and the rude people and people pushing and eyeing up your bag. i hate that if you want to shop comfortably, you have to be in the shops by 9am or its hell.

but i love the choice of places to eat, the boutique shops and foreign food shops. i love the landmarks and museums and galleries.

(macaroons from Laduree, Burlington Arcade, nr picadilly circus. i recommend the mango and the rose.)

lanterns for chinese new year..

the astoria. a historic music venue, soon to be demolished to make way for a high speed Underground hub.

*on an unrelated note, if you like free inspiration, check our shimelle's blog for a free class.

*received an email from anam stubbington to say that 2 of my tattoo related LOs have been published in a Thai tattoo mag! ('got ink' and 'pretty feet')

here's 3 layouts using various sweet spuds kits..

i went to see Twilight on my own yesterday. i did enjoy it, thought it was very good, but there were a couple of cringey moments...such as when Bella is talking to Edward saying she knows what he is and he says 'say it out loud'. ick. also i could see the rims of his contacts. and did anyone else think the guy playing Carlyle was a bit weird?
