The injustice of children's clothes... and other musings.

Well, I'm all packed and ready for approximately four hours of sleep before my friend Russ picks me up to haul us off to Worthy Farm.

Still sulking a little, as I didn't manage to find the perfect kagoul and welly set to take with me. Why don't they make outfits like this for grown-ups? Come on, hands up who would totally rock this ensemble?

(from Alfie's Feet by Shirley Hughes)

Don't miss me too much! I'll be back Monday - but probably won't be fit for human contact until at least Tuesday - and I have absolutely TONS planned for SBV when I return. Such as... my long awaited giveaway will eventually surface - I originally had it planned for reaching 50 followers and now I'm approaching 150! I think that just says a lot about my powers of procrastination.

Also, I haven't forgotten about my suggestion to include Photoshop tutorials - there was a definite interest there, and I've been planning them out as and when I get a chance, just working out the best way to display, how in-depth to go, etc. So they're coming up too.

And that's not all... summer always seems to make me incredibly nostalgic, and I have so much nostalgic content to post that I've even created a new label for it. And a new word.
Nostalgisising. Plus more baking, more outfit posts, and most excitingly of all - at least on a personal level - there's going to be a bit of an interior design theme over the next few months. I'm moving in with my sister and the Kid, week commencing 5th July - which is SOON - so that's going to be consuming my life for a bit, and my bank balance, and therefore my blog. I think I'm buying this bed. So pretty.

And finally, I just want to say thanks for all your lovely comments over the last few months. I've had this blog for a couple of years now, actually, but it's only in the last six months or so that I've really got into the swing of blogging. I've got to know so many lovely people, and your comments really do mean a lot. Plus, your blogs are all amazing, inspiring, and beautiful.

Have a FANTASTIC week. And wish me sun!
