Rosey Cheeks

 Being on the best side of the window.
Tea Parties.
 Buttery crumpets with black cherry jam and a cosy cardigan and pyjama combo.
 Skies to dream about later.
 Plaits, stripes and freckles.
 Wearing this t shirt over anything and everything.
Sunbathing oranges - so much sweeter.   

* Waving and plaiting my hair with flowers    * Chopping avocadoes into everything and sometimes just eating them with a spoon    * Not wearing woolly hats but experimenting with a new fedora and new beautiful floppy brimmed hat    * Hearing the birds sing to each other and wondering what they are saying    * Finding new freckles    * Eating sweet oranges from the sunny window sill    * Falling back in love with Lush Daddio shampoo and smelling my violet-ey hair at every opportunity    * Applying lots of rosey pink blusher  * Chocolate and ginger biscuits with Lady Grey tea before bed    *  Wearing stripes and flowery anythings with everythings    * Wearing pale blue and lilac together - even if it is in pyjama form    * Thinking on the train    * Cuddles and hugs    * The smell of wild garlic on twilight biycycle trips    * Discovering Simple Things magazine and wanting to live inside its beautiful pages    * Walnut whips and their small-ness    * Feeling loved.

Today has been a funny lovely day.  Pastries for breakfast - two cups of tea - standard Sunday behaviour.  A rainy blustery afternoon where i held on to my hat tight and wandered Caldbeck with the Mr.  We ate in the prettiest cafe with the most perfect beams and most delectable tea bread. Then we watched a little red squirrel stick his bottom in the air and try and find his lunch.  When we got home i tried to be creative and almost turned my hair purple.  

Tonight calls for beef wellington with sweet potato mash and then not doing very much at all to be honest.  Just how it should be.


  1. Your hair looks looovely in those plaits Sally :)
    Does a bit of sun really make oranges better?! Might have to try that one if so :)
