[week in pictures] more of a month. featuring dogs, glitter and cake. and a blackbird.

A rather random selection of pictures from my May archives which made me smile…

One of my regular visitors (if I had a familiar or a daemon, it would definitely be a blackbird)

My life is no longer packed in boxes | Week in photos

Oh, it’s been a whirlwind of a week. (I wonder how often I start a blog post with that?) I’ve finally moved, I’m in, the keys have been handed back to the old flat’s agents and my new house feels like home already!

Here are the fabulous daffodils (I ADORE daffs) that Mum and Dad brought me to celebrate moving in. I feel I should point out that the curtains will be changed shortly, and I really should have been buying them flowers – couldn’t have done this move without them!

And my very first visitors this weekend…

Here are some (probably blurry) photos from the move – am hoping Mum took some of the chaos of boxes, as I completely forgot in the excitement!

The last few weeks in Instagram highlights – L-R tassels in progress, colourful table settings and ballet in the air at work; frosted spider web, delicious mango sorbet, first batch of eBay parcels from my pre-move clear out.

Happy things include 15 Queen Street and discovering the amazing creatives in my area | planning and prepping for a collaborative photoshoot with Contrariety Rose | development of Ink Drops Boxes | various happy-making side projects | fabulous Free Range Humans (the people and the book) | finding a new home | Hotel Chocolat caramel hot chocolate | bumping into Poppy’s old owner on a roundabout in a snowstorm | resurrecting the Ducks on Tour and finding original Frankie and Freddie pictures

And I have Thursday and Friday off work for the shoot 🙂

My week in pictures – 22-29 January

I ate a lot of this (new Cadburys Dairy Milk Bubbly – looks cool but buggered the healthy eating up somewhat:

Kim made my week much better by giving me these beauties, which I proceeded to wear around the office for a couple of days:

We ordered some mystery shop flowers at work and I got to take one of the bouquets home, here they are in my living room looking lovely:

And I managed to buy and start reading the latest issue of Mollie Makes – full of inspiration as always:

So the lovely bits made up for the madness and late nights caused by the day job 🙂
