Weekend of Wonder and Wands

So yesterday I went on the Harry Potter Studio Tour. It was amazing, and magical and so much better than I hoped that it would be. We even had butter beer! I don't want to give too much away in case you go but the amount of work they put into those films... the details are unbeliveable. I had never noticed the murals on the wall of the great hall for instance.

If you can go and you like the films try and get a ticket it's worth it! None of us are fanatics but we still had a great time and were there over 2 and a half hours.


Today I went to the gym. My step instructor was running a class in aid of an MS charity and some of the women were laying on a raffel, wine and cakes. One of the members had died of MS last year and his wife was organising the fundraising with her friends. It was a lovely chance for me to get to know some more people at the gym and to give to a cause close to me a relitive of mine suffered with it too. I had a great time with the girls from step and the cake was devine too!

How about some Harry Potter pictures...



Sorry about the quality, my phone was not happy with the lighting! ... I really nees a grown up camera!

Hope you had a good weekend too :)

Cross stitch necklace

Today was my first day back at work in 2014 (I took the rest off - it was lovely). I thought I'd make a bit of an effort and put on boots, tights and a skirt as well as the above.

The necklace was a christmas present from Ve, she made it! Isn't it amazing! You can get the necklace hoops online or from some craft shops she said.


Why a bike you ask? Well partly because of the time I fell into a parked car attempting to cycle and also because she maintains all I need to be 100% hipster is a fixed wheel bike! The cheek of it...


The first Monday of the year is apparently the most depressing of the year which is a sad way to start isn't it! My day was pretty good although I managed to rip my skirt (nooooo!).


P.S. I died my hair last week, it's a bit darker than usual - thoughts?

Moving playlist

Moving is all done!

The whole process was a pain, the person who was going to take my room pulled out so I ended up re-advertising which took a while ...  It was nice to have more time with the short commute but for a few weeks there I felt like I was stuck waiting for things to happen, then luckily we found someone nice and then there was the whole moving whirlwind.

I've still got some unpacking to do but I'm pretty much done and all my stuff is here now. It's weird living beck home but much easier than staying over Christmas etc. because all my things are here (I do like my things).

At some point I'll set my Etsy shop back up but probably not until after I've gotten used to my commute!

Richard II, blankets & Kingston

This weekend I've mainly been working on the big purple blanket; it's a monster and I think it'll take me most of the year but it's going to be beautiful... 

Besides that my parents came up Saturday with my brother for us to go see Richard II with David Tennant in! It's a great production ... if you can get tickets. My brother said they had cut bits of it out but it still works and Tennant is great as the vain mislead king and the set is amazing! 


Today I went to Local Hero in Kingston with Roisin for a natter and a rather lovely sausage sandwich. Kingston was pretty much sponsored by Cath Kidstone over Christmas - lot's of pretty polka dots!
