I am, it has to be said a very lucky girl. Yesterday, the divine Dr Bones and Maffi (who is Igor to her Dr Frankenstein) – came over and spent AGES plumbing in our new dishwasher (including a trip to Evenlode DIY for bits). All this out of love!
The Boy would like to point out that he cooked a delicious supper for us all – but the dynamic duo didn’t know this was on the cards when they minced over….thank you, thank you, thank you. I now have to work out how the thing works!
This owl caught my eye in Oxford station today. For a split second I thought it was real! I assume it’s been placed there to scare off other birds.
Yesterday, The Boy and I went to an exhibition at Modern Art Oxford – The House of Books has no Windows, by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller.
I’d been lured in by the title, and the knowledge that the exhibition was FREE. I don’t normally ‘get’ conceptual art, but I really enjoyed the show.
The Boy took these pics on his phone, hence the rather poor quality (but hey, that makes them nice and ‘arty’) – I think I look like a little girl who’s found her perfect Wendy House
Every year I force bulbs under the stairs. This year, I have these purple wonders. They smell every bit as good as they look.
Last week I dusted off my apron, and made this yummy fig and walnut bread.
It was exceedingly delicious!
[The breadboard is a hippo, but in this photo it looks a bit like a Moomin
…but without punctuation, it could mean lots of different things…or have I been living with an editor too long?
A few years ago I went to the States to visit my friend Annie and her sister Virginia. I’d only just bought my first digital camera, and didn’t pack a spare battery or a charger, so this was the ONLY picture I was able to take.
I love the idea of a sky scraper with a flying buttress.
