It still seems hard to think that this time in a month Christmas will be completely over, the weather is still so mild and not a glimpse of snow. I walked past the Natural History Museum in London today and they have an ice rink there at the moment with a ferris wheel, it all looks very lovely set against this magnificent building. If the children were with me I would have given the skating a go, something I haven't done since I was a child, I'm sure it should be on my bucket list!
When I first started blogging I met some wonderful new friends including the lovely and talented Lisa Gordon who takes amazing polaroids. I mentioned to her that I wanted to buy a polaroid camera and she sent me one of hers!! I have had it sitting waiting and this week I finally got some film, the PX silver shade. Here is the other side of my sitting room, I love the morning light streaming in. Thank you again Lisa!
Yesterday was one of those beautiful autumn days, I took the first picture with the morning light streaming in through the blinds in the sitting room.
I am linking up at through a photographer's eye today, this is a great blog I have stumbled across.
Finally I have finished doing everything I needed to in the house, we have been here six months - time has gone so quickly. A man arrived yesterday to fit the headboard in my daughter's bedroom and my window seat cushion in the book room so now I can just sit back and enjoy it all. I think I will sit reading a biography of Charles Dickens by Claire Tomalin that I have just started. What are you reading? I am hoping it will inspire me to spend 2012 reading all his novels, I should start with a Christmas Carol as soon as possible, anyone care to join me?
London is looking very grey and dull at the moment but as I tidied up the garden yesterday ready for winter I found that the clematis is still flowering. I love these colours together, purple and green make such a wonderful combination. Hope you are having a colourful autumn too.
