🌿 They say that with ivy, you either love it or you hate it. My mum despises it, because it tends to strangle her other plants. I’ve always found it impressive how it reappeared in our garden every year, no matter how hard she tried to get rid of it. I think that’s what I like about ivy, that stubborn persistence.
Do you like hard-to-kill plants or are you more of a fan of the delicate ones?
If you need me, I’ll be here this evening, soaking my aching yoga-stretched hamstrings. The theme for Day 20 of #myhousethismonth is #bathroom and ours is three years old now but I still love it as much as ever. So pleased we went for a #monochrome scheme (though I was dismayed when Ryan came home with cream toilet roll the other day 🙄 Some people just don’t get it do they? 😂) #homeetc#mymonovibes
This is the place I call home ❤️ 18 Islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, with weather ever changing, sometimes rough storms other days beautiful weather like today - most days both!
Sometimes I have to pinch myself, close my eyes and reopen them, just to make sure it’s real. The Faroe Islands really are the most amazing place on earth 🇫🇴
A little corner of our bedroom. Thank you for all your really lovely messages on my last post, I can announce that I've now had two pretty successful nights sleep! Perhaps all I needed to do was have a moan to lots of people? I also refused to look at my phone past 9pm and I stopped clock watching which I think must have helped me relax. I was so tired last night I feel asleep on the sofa whilst Simon and I were watching Silicon Valley (my new favourite comedy show). There's so many top tips on my last post so if you've also been suffering from insomnia go have a read!
Foraging through my collection of books felt like a perfectly reasonable way to pass time for the @artstew52 ‘s prompt of the week “Pg 3.”
Found the perfect weekend line too in one of my favourite books “Seven brief lessons in Physics” by Carlo Rovelli.
Read it in the next photo and if you’re like me and feel bad when you “waste” time, It’ll make you feel a whole lot better😉

Getting some interior inspiration from @saralindsey 😍🌿 today we signed our tenancy agreement for the flat in Guilford and for the first time I actually felt excited! Generally... I don't deal well with change, and this has been no exception, but I know this is a good change 🙌 I just wish my body would get the memo and stop freaking out 😅 how do you cope with change? Do you love it or hate it? #amonthofkind
Even though I never became a professional ballerina all the years of intense dancing taught me a lot about being disciplined and persistent. Sometimes I think about how much those teenage years probably molded me and my set of values (although giving up chocolate was never on the table). What interests or hobbies from your youth shaped the adult you?
Dydd 20 #darlunydyddanna2018 - Day 20 #annasdrawingaday2018 🌉Pont Borth - Menai Bridge 🌉 y gwir tu ol y llun yma ydi nes i neud y lliw a’r amlinell sydyn adra a wedyn neud y llun ei hyn mewn caffi amser cinio yn Porthaethwy cyn mynd lawr i dynnu llun haha sad 😁🤓 sbio arna fo rwan a dwi’n gweld lot o betha swnin newid/gwella, ond dim ots! Gobeithio bod chi gyd yn gal nos Sadwrn neis be bynnag dachi’n neud 🤗 the truth behind this photo is I drew the outline and gouache paint at home, then did the actual drawing in a cafe at lunch in Menai Bridge before heading down here to take a photo in front of it - SAD haha 🤓😂 I’m not completely happy with this drawing, I’m now seeing mistakes/things I could’ve done better, but never mind! I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday night whatever you’re up to 🤗
I recently started collecting cute products packaging and I bumped into this one during my croissant hunting. 🌹Am I the only weirdo who loves rose flavor? 😍 [Also, I didn’t read what that bell said until I edited the photo so I won’t be making eye contact with my roommate for a while...] 🛎🍑🍆
I was scrolling through my camera roll and I stumbled upon this photo of my favourite corner at @kaufdichgluecklich in Berlin (best waffles in town!).
I miss this city so much and I hope to go back again soon!
Do you have a favourite place in a city you visited?
Would you have tea with me? Usually I stare at paint spatters and find the image I will create in the random drops and dabs of color. But this time, the idea for the painting and the image appeared in my mind first. I knew the mood and that there was a tea pot and cups and a woman. But as I worked on it, I needed more to work with and gathered these items together on my drafting table for further inspiration. I went out to a thrift shop to find a tea set and I was amazed and delighted to find this graceful Wedgwood set there. Do you have a beloved tea pot or favorite brand of tea?

Ku-ku! One afternoon I hide and find myself screaming sister, and I know where she hid. behind my back, calling it a safe place, maybe she's right. In the adult world too, sometimes you want to hide behind, but only reliable, but this is not worth talking about, if you notice that my nail varnish is not perfect, it dims and I'm not afraid to show how not afraid to show yourself without makeup and shaggy hair, as it is just me. Well, I wanted to write a story about how two hours ago, Richard🐶 came down, walking through a strange young type that glows in the Windows of people, home flashlight well, that's another story, later.
Ку ку! Я прячусь найди меня кричала моя маленькая сестренка одним прекрасным днем и знаете где она спряталась？ за моей спиной, называя это место надежным, возможно она права. Во взрослом мире так же порой хочется спрятаться за спиной, но только надежной, но не будем об этом, если ты заметил мой лак не идеален, он стерся и я не боюсь это показать, как не боюсь показать себя без косметики и растреппанной, просто так как есть. Ну вот хотела написать историю о том как два часа назад мы с Ричардом🐶 во время прогулки на странного молодого типа, который светил в чужие окна дома фонарем, ну это уже другая история, немного позже.
When you wake up late(7:15😂) on a Saturday morning and take it slow with your babes🙌🏼—I LOVE THE WEEKEND!
Also, it’s been the best week!! My January body camp is 🔥ON FIRE! My girls in my fitness community are seeing amazing results and so am I! It’s a complete game changer when you have accountability buddies to keep you motivated and on track.
Not gonna lie...I’m loving the breakfast feasts every morning😋😋 I remember back when I would eat just a bowl of cereal and call it good...learning more about nutrition and fueling my body for the best energy has been life changing!
Make it a good day everyone!😘😘
“See, I'm wresting with the cliche questions I wanted to think I was beyond succumbing to, but here I am, neck deep.... Like, damn it, I want to know why me?.... I want to have something to hold onto beyond your promises turned platitudes when the darkness grows into a beast far scarier than my coldest nightmare, waiting to devour me the moment I stop moving. I want to know how the hell people do this -- how they find enough meaning in your words to fight another day, to stay another day. And I want to know why I hurt so much, all of the fucking time. Why this heart seems to only beat fast and heavy -- why this mind only knows how to overthink the joy out of everything?”
Despite living so close to the coast, it still makes me smile to see the sea. I think I should add in a new goal for the year to try and visit the beach a little more often, even on drizzly grey days there is something rather lovely about stopping to watch the waves for a little while 🌊
* hint of spring * sheeesh that was a cold one! rain was lashing but you’d never know from this shot ... was worth rain in the face to admire these blooms ... this chilly weather is such a good excuse to get cosy, isn’t it ♡ have a lovely one X
📷 Beautiful @kewgardens from last year 💚 love this place. Found a palm glass house close to my home in my @the_rhs magazine think i’ll be planning a visit there soon, when the weather cheers up a bit. Happy Saturday 🦋🌴🌿
Miss never-not-working’s recent hobbies include drinking more wine than usual, and actually resting on Saturdays ☁️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
