The Beautiful British Museum


I was very excited about spending our Sunday morning strolling through The British Museum - a nostalgic excitement, like how you would look forward to going on school outings with your rucksack full of notebooks and a packed lunch! To help wake us up properly after the previous night out in Soho, we sat bleary eyed with a coffee and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the main hall - a spot of people watching is always good fun! This regal lion watches over the visitors coming and going with a certain air of nobility, there are several more from his era scattered throughout the museum. Once I felt my brain to start engaging we were off exploring, only managing a handful of rooms from Egyptian, Ancient Greek and Roman artefacts before the hoards of tourists got too much and we retired for lunch (weekend visiting wouldn't usually be my first choice, not the most patient person in a crowd!) But I was so pleased to be back in one of my favourite places, these museums will always be filled with joy and wonder for me, I'll never tire of them. Hope to take you on a mini-tour with the pictures I took whilst walking those amazing halls! 
















What's your favourite museum to visit? Uk or abroad, all suggestions welcome!

Five Happy Things In January








  1. SNOW! Only a little sprinkling but still enough to make things look exceedingly pretty
  2. Days off work with slow tasty brunches
  3. Mia being puppy-like as ever with her menagerie of friends
  4. Toasting my Grandad's 92nd birthday with our favourite local Gin, Silent Pool
  5. The first spring bulbs bursting into colour and scent


Welcome 2017!


Hello and a very happy (belated!) new year to you! I hope it is off to a good start, I have unfortunately been laid up with a nasty flu-like virus since Christmas Day (fabulous timing!) so it's been bed rest and box sets, not all bad news! I was dying to get some fresh air so managed to stagger round the woods and admire the winter landscape, Mia was kissing the ground to get out of the house at last! These sunny but chilly days are my favourite, particularly when there's no need to de-ice the car (my least favourite domestic job after ironing, booooo!). I am hoping to get back to feeling my usual self very soon, with an army of vitamins and a rainbow or fruit and veg to the rescue, so I hope to be back with some news! 




After my Macbook decided to keel over I haven't been blogging as much in 2016 as much as I would have liked too, I find processing a blog post on an iPad very annoying, but I really want to be back chatting with you a lot more! Promise!

Thanks for reading,

Katie
