Had to

Yeah, how could I not? Such a beautiful dress and pretty cool to see William driving the Aston Martin. Photos from

Budapest Snaps

A few snapshots of Budapest memories – finding numerous love tokens around the city, getting an upgrade to a six bed apartment even though there was just two of us, realising the decay up close, an uphill trek just for a photo of Matthias church, getting caught in a motorcycle rally, finding all the antique shops closed, resting up outside Budapest castle.

If there was only one reason to visit Inverness, Leakey's would be it.

Tom Vek is Back

For five long years I've searched and then just when I had given him for wolf-feed he returns with a new song, video and tour. Welcome back Tom Vek.

The last month of our free dvd rental, sadtimes. I finally saw Rosemary’s Baby, funtimes.

Budapest Zoo


I remember this was a blisteringly hot day, my feet were raw from three days of walking and I hadn't had anything decent to drink in hours but it was still a great day at the zoo. The centre of the zoo is occupied by a huge duck pond surrounded by heron trees and fighting fowl, there are dozens of reptile houses and an impressive bat enclosure. We wandered around the animals for hours and peeked in at the newborns in the animal hospital. There was a completely darkened spider and insect room that I couldn't bring myself to go into - imagine turning the lights off in a room like that.

On the way to see the giraffes I found this display, I assume it has been knocked over but I love the fact that noone has fixed it and by the looks of it it's been like this for some time, it's insane.

Yesterday, somewhat inexplicably, I got quite excited about the upcoming Royal Wedding. It lasted for about 20 minutes before I got back to myself again but in that time I managed to make a couple of themed pieces for the shop

Spring Rainbows


All this sunshine has got me craving spring colours and I've had a bit of a crafting spree; this is my latest batch of simple, t shirt friendly, summer necklaces. These will be going into the shop during the next week.

The cafe at work has started stocking these little beauties – plain chocolate KitKats. I’m rapidly becoming addicted to them dipped in my afternoon cup of tea.

Days Off, Stuff Done


Easter holidays have started. All this sunshine and free time has got me feeling rather summery. First thing this morning I put together some colourful new things for the shop, of which this a small selection. I so much want to keep the feather necklace but I've been good and put it up for sale. The blasted camera doesn't really do the colours justice but this is a bright and cheery lot.
