that time of year

a few more days and then it's back to the world of academia. oh joy.

i really want to finally get round to doing all the small things i've been wanting to do for so long, but never really have. i want to grow all kind of vegetable and flower plants, all from tiny seeds. i want to finally buy a pair of those brilliant binoculars that allow you to see the moon and stars ever so clearly. and i really really want to become excellent at cooking! i've recently grown to love it, i find it rather soothing; which is completely the oppposite of what i used to find it - hell, that is. i want to get to the stage where you dont have to measure things, and from instinct you know how much herbs or how much flour to put in, or be able to make a dish which is just utterly gorgeous from the little ingredients you have in your fridge! ahhh i feel so excited to learn something new.

anyway, hope you're all enjoying the last week of summer.

behats i would like very much to see you

finally. a productive day has emerged from the seemingly endless days filled with nothing but what can only be described as utter laziness. started reading mao's biography today, which to be fair, isn't half bad. not the most riveting read lets be honest. but nonetheless not bad, not baddd. thinking i maybe should've started earlier considering i have about abother 36219 books to read on china.

oh well, its been brilliant not to have to worry about work. literally brilliant.

but all good things must eventually come to an end. the aforementioned 'brilliance' most certainley has. a huge feeling of what can only be described as horror has more than happily taken its place. results in less than a week, oh jeeeesus; a pretty damn lenghty dissertation on china has to be completed, the list really is endless. oh dear lord why oh why must the summer holidays be so stressful.

if you read this - then i'm sorry for my mini realisation that i'm slowly becoming a failure. hope the calming photos make up. also foals' new album is making the stress subside a little i guess - spanish sahara <3

Wednesday Mornings

These were too adorable not to post. There's a lot of baby talk going on at the moment with two of my Aunt's expecting. It's all so exciting! Already looking for some lovely baby gifts to buy or maybe even make :)

I know my mind's on the front line

The woman and the hat are so so cute. Love the gorgeous colour and the style of the knit muchly. Not a huge fan of the dress on the second picture, but the colour of the is just lovely - and her freckles too :)

Anywhere but There

Just two people who just effortlesslyyy stylish - from The Satorialist of course. And forgive me for the top picture, I just found it a little too funny and for some reason decided to post. Hope you're all having a brilliant summer.
