Love

A couple of things I love:  the colour yellow, the sea, making things, conversations with good friends, doing unexpected things.

To be inspired

To be inspired

I was inspired by the list of things that my friend SkeinQueen has been up to: spinning, dyeing, updating, hanging out in Bentleys and lashing it up with the ladies. She made me feel like a sloth…. So here is my weekend, not as entertaining but maybe it’s because I am a wee bit older […]
