Family visits…

I do not want to sound uncharitable, but I really cannot be bothered with the forthcoming visit by the in-laws. I know, I sound positively dreadful saying this, but I feel the need to say it. M's father and brother are coming over this week from Ireland for the weekend. Now, I hear you all... Continue Reading →

Hidden

I was out photographing Liverpool, one of my favourite cities for many reasons, but the wealth of architecture is astounding. I know Liverpool very well and always go off the so called beaten track to find things that others do not see.   I was pulled in by what could be lurking through the decayed... Continue Reading →

He and his buddies were roaming about across the garden waste bin, obviously looking for something to eat, or to take... Continue Reading →

The smell of an outboard motor reminds me of a holiday when I was about 10 in my uncle's speedboat, fishing in the North Atlantic. Lavender, scones,... Continue Reading →

Computer….

Sweater Thoughts

I love gothic/Victorian clothing, I always have, and luckily enough, they seem to suit me. However, there is one sweater that I would love to make myself, and it is this one modelled by Josh Hartnett as Ethan Chandler in Penny Dreadful season two. I love the simplicity of it, the colour and the detail of... Continue Reading →
