Something for the weekend

Not much makes me wish I was a man (read: nothing) but this just might (also: the world’s best father)

My favourite animal in the world (well, and giraffes. I fed one in Kenya — converted me to giraffism for life)

Shit my spirit says

Lisa and Sarah have just visited Iceland (more here and here), convincing me I NEED to go there next year (also this and this)

Finding peace with uncertainty

Have you met Tanya? She’s the real deal. I may have even mentioned that before (because she really is). Check out her pay-what-you-can day to celebrate turning 40 (be joining you in 127 days, babe!)

And finally, this has happened to me too ;-)

Happy weekend, everybody! x

    When I see your email on a Friday it perks me up and makes me v happy, thank you so much for it all and a big wave from a grassy meadow in SE Ireland. Have a wonderful weekend:~))

    Have you seen this on Iceland?:

    It’s what made me decide I have to go.

    Also that photo is wonderful. I love the way you expose me to different forms of beauty. I would never have thought of taking that scene, but I can’t wait to fave it on Flickr. You stretch me in the best ways.

    They still have page 3. Really? I remember page 3 from when I was in Essex in 1982. Good grief. *Sigh.

    It can’t be the weekend again already.
    My copy of The Simple Things arrived yesterday afternoon and I am looking forward to sitting down and reading it from cover to cover. So excited to see that another of my favourite bloggers, Sandra Juto, also has an article on one of my favourite cities.

    Loved the exercises from the magazine. Looking forward to keeping my eye out for love hearts. I think I have been walking around with my eyes closed for a while. Time to wake up. :)
