Hello *waves manically*
So... This weekend, I got old, I got 21. Exciting, so so so very exciting becuase I got to spend the day with friends I've loved and held dear for almost a decade now. Rockey, the great, swooped down from Manchester. Ray buzzed in from Leeds, JoJo from Northampton, and one of our oldies, Si, even came.
It had been over a year since I caught up with Simon, he was one of my best friends, I loved him so much, things change and people change. It's great now, because I'll be moving back to the Shire for the summer, and it'll be so fab to have people you really love around again.
Okay, so one, two, three, four, a million more, shooters, cocktails, and all sorts and we were dancing gaily to the Spice Girls! It was a wild and wonderful night.
Indie Boy totally won me over! With the uh, handbag above, it says.... Praaaada! Not only a fantastic handbag, but also a HUGE piece of bling. Wow, wow, wow. I love that man. Superficial yet?
Sunday was spent with extended family, my wonderful Fairy Godmother who showered me with far too many designer cosmetics. My dearest and oldest neighbour and her beautiful boys too. The day was lovely. That was, after I recovered from a bit of a hangover. I felt like the above picture, so happy, yet so very rough!
Please please please keep me in your thoughts, tomorrow night is the big opening of my photography exhibition, and I'm pretty scared!
Have a wonderful week peeps, all the best!
With the summer sun high in the sky, we headed out to a little village just down from ours.
There's a local publication which beautifully captures the delicious essence of the Chilterns - The Chilterns Food Magazine.
We had found a spot at Marco Pierre White's Rudloe Arms...
Just outside the gates to Sania's was a wealth of market stalls.
Within the wonderful chaos of Ubud market, we stumbled into Sania's House.
Deep in the hills of the island you'll find Pura Goa Gajah Temple, a 9th Century cave sanctuary.
Utterly serene and the perfect spot to catch up on reading and snoozing...
At the heart of the local village is a cluster of shops. There's a butcher, baker, hairdresser, corner shop, solicitors, gym, post office and charity shop.
