May in moments

I'm keeping this very visual as I'm not in a mood to write. Bad PMS. I've been moodswingy and tearful all week but the ups have been the blazing sunshine, the birdsong, Stu, bright flowers, great food and tiny bugs glowing golden in the light.

Lizard Horse - The joy of being in a band and playing a first gig

This really isn't something I ever thought I'd do. As much as I love music, it was unimaginable to me that I could ever actually be part of a band.

A sunny day in Brighton - Stu's birthday surprise

Another post featuring Stu...but in Brighton and it was his birthday and it was so much fun! Stu and I don't always buy each other birthday gifts but we do spend the day together. I knew exactly what I wanted to do on my birthday and planned it out. He wasn't very excited about this birthday (he didn't want to turn 31) and didn't know what he wanted to do so I said I'd surprise him!

SBC guitars - apple trees and creative business confidence

 Stu loves wood and music and using his hands. So of course he designs and builds his own guitars. And I think they're beautiful. Little, handcrafted and full appreciation of natural wood. (He doesn't like to hide the grain).

April in moments

Bam! April was less about good habits and more about good friends and good times. I've barely been to the gym but I've had a lot of fun.

Hosting a Beauty & the Beast afternoon tea

I love a theme. I love cake. I love Beauty & the Beast. I love to plan, execute and host. I didn't need a reason to host a Beauty & the Beast afternoon tea, I wasn't even sure we'd bother to go see the new film! (We did though and I'm glad as it was great).

My Wiltshire friends had been talking excitedly on facebook about the Tale as old as time afternoon tea at the Kensington. Which looks beautiful and much fancier than mine! Mine wasn't £35 per person though. I resent how expensive afternoon teas can be, especially when they have no adjustments for vegetarians or dairy intolerences. Anyway, the proper fancy one is booked up for months so I decided to host my own version.

a date in Palmers Green

We used to live in Palmers Green and I like it a lot although I prefer visiting to living there. It's a bit of a commute if you need to work in zone 1 every day but for a lazy weekend date, it's great.
