My Alice Book

So i brought this book a while ago from a charity shop. . . it was amazing. I feel bad about drawing in it every time i do. . .but i can't help myself, the book is about three times the thickness it was when i brought it.

Lately i have been using water colours

And pencils (have you seen this film? Its beautiful!)

And pen and masking tape.

And acrylics

Yes Please . . .

So its my Birthday next week and i thought it only fitting to list a few things that i would like. . .however, i will probably not get any of these things seeing as i'm going on my crazy travelling times. . people will be giving me money. This never happens!

One of these amazon Kindle things. . . I want to take it with me. Did you know if you get the 3G version you can read your emails all over the world for free?? Wow!! This is what i need, oh and for books aswell. Of course. :)

Every single series, i'm so addicted right now. . .

One of these little gems, i could make fancy photographs with minimum skill. . .brilliant! :)

I've wanted one since last winter. . .oh and the winter before. . .and the one before!

Everything that superdry have ever made. . .ever.

The end! :)

I could probably think of more stuff, but with risk of sounding greedy i'll stop.

Thursday Thursday

So. . .living with Angel. . .well its messy. I'm messy, she is messy, we're both messy. So yeah its normally messy. 
Yesterday i came home from work to Angel sitting in this beautiful spot in the living room, surrounded by a completely spotless room.

Wow, those bay windows. :)

(and yes that is my grubby car in the background!)

It made me notice things even more, like a chair that we had rescued from someones front garden when it looked like this.

(yes that is me. . .and yes that is a glass of wine, whist walking down the road with a chair. . .don't judge me)

It now looks like this. It wasn't a quick job, spraying an old decaying wicker chair red. . .well it took several base coats, and several red coats, and even then on the underside it looks a bit patchy.

(you can see its slowly falling apart at the bottom, one day i'll sit on it and it will break. . . but until that day i love it!)

Even the tree was free of dead leaves.

And these shells free of dust. 

What a good day! :)

Wordless Wednesday

So i've been away. Well I haven't been away really, but i have had time off and i have been swanning around London, and Birmingham eating in Jamie Olivers restaurant and watching Dallas Green at the Royal Albert hall. Plus loads more exciting stuff. But i'll fill you in on a day when i'm not so stressed.

Yeah, its May!! Wowee, my Birthday month, another year older, but also i have. . .well, not that much to do but what feels like 101 things to do between now and the end of the month.

Wish me luck. .. double luck with the first two please!! Oh and that last one. . .thats pretty important too.
