I have a new favourite thing. My mum came to visit last week and we went shopping in Camden. It’s odd, but I hadn’t really bothered to wander around until my mum came, despite living here for the last 3 months. I suppose it was because I spent half of my teenage years in Camden, so I knew what to expect. It was fun watching my mum’s facial expressions¬†if we walked past any mega goths, though. We found this cuter than cute T Rex necklace at a stall by the canal and it has been around my neck for most of the weekend. Small pleasures.

Photos from messing around in Regent’s Park on bank holiday Monday. After a lunch of Indonesian cuisine and gelato from Scoop, Bethany and I met up with a few of my friends in Camden and we went and had some drinks in the park. Look how earthy and tree-loving they are.

I’m off to Kenya tomorrow night. I hope that when I get back, life takes on a slower pace. I miss having time to spend doing nothing – this week has been quite crazy in a number of ways and looking back at these photos is making me pine for the time when I had more opportunities to be silly in parks and other places. Won’t complain – Kenya awaits.

Having spent much of the weekend packing and sorting through my belongings, I haven’t had much of a chance to say goodbye to Richmond. I move out next weekend but have to get everything ready in advance because I’m working full-time. These photos are from last Sunday, when my friend Sam and I walked all the way along from Richmond to Kingston, and then wandered back to Richmond in time for sunset. I’ll miss the 45-minute walk home from Richmond – the perfect opportunity to let off steam at the end of a long day. For some reason, I doubt Camden will be as picturesque as Richmond, but it will certainly be an easier commute without the dreaded 65 bus and gridlocked narrow roads in the mornings.

Now then, now then. Off to continue wading through my masses of things. This week is going to be busy and exhausting, but I have nothing to complain about so I hope I can keep a smile on my face despite the inevitable tiredness!

For me, Camden is all about the tacky feast for the eyes. I haven’t actually bought anything there for a long time, but sometimes I go just to take it all in.
