EUppreciation

08/07/2016

I was visiting a friend in Paris when the verdict of the EU referendum was announced (Don’t worry I did my postal vote weeks before).

Feeling completely mortified by what had happened we walked the beautiful streets of Paris. A sense of loss or mourning struck me as we walked around, looking at streets that perhaps my own children will not be so free to step on.

With this sadness came appreciation, even if it is now only for the next two years, appreciation for what we have, the freedom to visit such beautiful cities and cultures with such ease.

I can’t know that those that voted leave will or won’t regret the choice they made, but I can know that I will try my best to stay optimistic and hopeful, that us 48% remainers won’t forget our reasons for voting, and will strive to keep those values alive and at the forefront of our politics.

 

 

London Polaroids

04/07/2013

It has been strange getting used to the huge craziness that is London but taking photographs has been my way of making it small again.

Here is a selection of Polaroid’s that have helped me make London a more manageable place to be!

Hope you like them. I’m sure there will be many more . The bigger London gets, the more I want to make it into tiny pocket sized photographs.

More and less.

I love finding things i love for less than i expected, not on sale, but  just a crazy low price!
Here are my top five finds of recent days!

1.

100 Postcards for £10!


2.

The ideas for this are endless, send it in the post as a gift, with anything written on it. 'time for us' 'I had a lovely time with you' Or a cheeky customised invitation with the clock set to the time of the event? All for £7.50

So Simple but really lovely, for those of us that still use tea leaves.

I know that you can buy plastic ones that sit in the cup but  not only are those ones ugly and go brown after one cup, but you have to empty the clingy tea leaves out of them every time you have a cuppa!
You can feel good knowing the bags can be composted away like a normal tea bag, whilst getting to have your favourite tea. Maybe even your own personal blend!

40 bags and 40 sticks for £4.50

4.

Personalise your cards and letters with the simplist idea.

I just spotted a set on e-bay for £4.00.

Buy a set of old scrabble tiles of e-bay, you can use these to put on cards and invitations.
A really sweet idea is to write a phrase and frame it in a deep frame you can probably get from a charity shop.
I know i’d love that as a gift.

5.

These would be soooo useful, i would use them hundreds of times for loads of things so worth the £18!

I prefer these ones but they are less of a bargain…

It would be so fun to have these, though there are only really two useful stamps in this one for £8
