  • Waking up in my Mum’s flat in London.
  • Making myself a cup of tea.
  • Enjoying a hot shower.

  • Getting cosy in a pair of thick tights and my beloved shearling boots.
  • Carefully applying my makeup.
  • Waking my sister up so I could use her hairdryer.
  • Stupidly skipping breakfast.
  • Packing up my camera and heading across London to attend Emily Quinton’s Photography for Bloggers Workshop. Book yourself on the next one ladies and gents, it was brilliant.
  • Feeling my hipster senses begin to tingle as I strode into Shoreditch.
  • Bubbling with a mixture of excitement and nerves.
  • Meeting lots lovely of new bloggers like Kirsty, Corrine, Catherine, Geraldine, Lynne and Natalie.
  • Learning so much.
  • Taking pictures of pretty flowers.

  • Wishing the workshop didn’t have to end.
  • Taking the bus to Camberwell.
  • Breathing through my mouth in order to avoid death by odorous commuters.
  • Sharing a meal with my godmother. She spoiled me with smoked salmon mousse on rye bread to start, porcini risotto and then finally a chocolate souffle for dessert. It was heavenly.
  • Drinking wine and catching up.
  • Making my way back to West London.
  • Finally arriving home a little after 11pm.
  • Feeling sleepy, but not being able to resist a few more chapters of The Happiness Project before bed.
  • Waking up in a daze when my phone started beeping. Is there anything worse than forgetting to switch off a 6am alarm call on a Sunday morning?!

  • Lazily getting showered and dressed.
  • Making the most of the glorious sunshine by taking some photos in the garden.
  • Waiting for Laura and her sister to arrive.
  • Rifling through an old suitcase full of my Dad’s possessions. We found a stash of old film from his art school days and a pile of production notes dating from 1976 that included a treatment for a documentary he hoped to make about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

  • Taking the train to Paddington.
  • Stocking up on mini eggs for the journey back to Exeter.
  • Reading and sleeping all the way to Devon.
  • Being greeted by huge hugs from two very smiley children.
