Keeping Mum

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.

In my own back yard

It has been a little while! I’ve had no compulsion to pick up my camera, having been so busy with work. These are of our modest little garden that has no grass, so only looks pretty covered in snow. I’m dreading the inevitably icy walk to work tomorrow but for now I’ll savour the crunch of new snow under my wellies.

I have been lucky enough over the past year or two to form new friendships and rekindle some old ones. The way I relate to women has changed dramatically because I’m no longer in such unrealistic situations with them – we don’t see each other every day, we don’t compete against each other in an intensive private school environment, and we don’t cling to each other in the panic of first leaving home. It feels much more like I’m able to appreciate the women in my life for what they are and what they do. We had a girls’ dinner in my flat last night and it was brilliant. We sat out in the garden for hours giggling away over copious amounts of food and red wine and pondering life, love and the universe. It was new for me, but I liked it.
