The Week I’ve Had (23rd January 2011)

Posted on

A busy few weeks have caught up with me; I was shattered at work on Monday. Luckily, I had a gingerbread man and a nice cup of tea to get me through it.

It’s been a chilly but otherwise lovely week – bright blue skies; little fluffy clouds; gorgeous sunsets. This is Wednesday’s, taken through the window at work (hence the pale line across it – darn reflections!).

I first saw these illustrated scaffolding covers in Edinburgh a year or so ago – I love them! This one’s over an old theatre in Aberdeen which is finally being restored after decades of sitting empty.

I spotted this heart on the way to work on Friday. I know it’s from one of those pairs of jeans which anyone who’s hit puberty can’t get past their ankles, but by itself I found it quite distressing.

On Saturday, Lola and I went to a crochet, knitting and sewing class at The Life Craft in Glasgow which was heaps of fun – crochet is my new [temporary] favourite craft. There are at least two posts’ worth of Glasgow/travelling photos to share with you this coming week but, in the meantime, here are our winter woollies on the train and Lola hard at work:

And today, The Green Hornet and veggie haggis. Happy Sunday everyone!

The Week I’ve Had (14 Nov 2010)

Posted on

By no means a comprehensive diary of my week, Sunday’s The Week I’ve Had posts are a collection of random images I’ve taken over the last seven days. Enjoy!

I’m very taken with the The Big Knit woolly hats on Innocent smoothies at the moment. And they’re even for a good cause, helping Britain’s older folk to stay warm in the winter. These three were Steve’s choice; he came home with them on Monday.

On Thursday, after several days of gale force wind and battering rain, the sun came out! I was only trying to get a shot of the lovely golden light outside my kitchen window when this flock of pigeons decided to beautify my picture. They’re welcome to coo on my roof any time.

I bought a pack of gingerbread penguins on Friday because I was amused by how angry “Mr Penguin” looked (“Mrs Penguin” was quite happy, listening to her bright pink headphones). The more of him Steve nibbled, the grumpier he seemed to become.

On Friday night, we sat back and watched Appleseed whilst drinking a mixture of Amaretto and mulled-apple-and-pear juice. It tasted like marzipan. Fiiiiiiiiiine.

Saturday, I did heaps of crafty stuff, followed by watching In Search of a Midnight Kiss which I’d bought on impulse and was surprised to find both Steve and I really liked. One for the Clerks and Before Sunrise fans.

We rounded the night off with a two hour Scrabble session, which I won by a mere eight points.
