These are actually from August, but I forgot about them! That shows you how on the ball I am at the moment.

My friend Simon and I went on an adventure to Barnes to visit the London Wetland Centre. We saw a lot of ducks (and some swans and a couple of otters) and got rained on and had a very nice time.

I like hanging out at my mum’s house. From the constant buzz of north London to that tiny residential sliver where (so-called) London meets countryside, it’s a welcome break. My mum has always loved flowers, as you can see from her garden above. It’s the perfect place to sit with the dog (I may post pics another time) when everyone else is out.

I spent most of the weekend nursing a sore head! It was totally worth it though, as my weekend included being let loose on my friends’ faces with face paints (as seen above). Nothing like having a whiskey in one hand and a paintbrush in the other.
Apologies for the hiatus; I just haven’t been taking photos. I kept finding myself in cool places without my camera, which kind of defeats the whole point of having a camera. In the meantime, enjoy our faces.

One of the amazing people I am blessed to call my friends, Henna, took me on a tea and cake date as part of my birthday present. We chose Drink, Shop & Do as I love it there and Henna had never been. I can barely remember what cake I had as I basically inhaled it (something with caramel?), and Henna had a coconutty concoction that was really, really good. We also indulged in a teacup full of sherbet but hardly made a dent in it because, well, it was an entire teacup full of sherbet. Still, I do love it at Drink, Shop & Do. I’ve taken a few people there in the year and a half since I was introduced to it. I’ve also been to Early Doors Disco in their downstairs bar a few times as a couple of dear friends DJ there. Check it out! It’s pretty cool.

It was a miserable day in Margate when I was there last week. Instead of taking photos outdoors (which would have looked terrible), I took a few inside the arcades instead. I do love a bit of tack, as we know.

I’m spoiling you with Bethany recently. She and I went for tea in High Tea of Highgate and it was SO CUTE. We also befriended these two little boys who shared a pot of tea. I know, tea. At their age (11-12), I was getting mucky outdoors on my bike and generally being a little bit feral. Tea in a teashop did not feature in my view of the world.
