love and other planets

I was introduced to this three minutes and sixteen seconds of gorgeousness from Adem, through Guy Garvey's Finest Hour, the best radio show out there. Tune in to 6 Music on Sunday nights at 10pm to hear an eclectic mix of beautiful music, and of course, an update of what Sir Patrick Moore was up to on that particular date in various different years.

because it's nearly pay day

A morning spent at Waitrose, an indpendent bookshop and the Antiques Emporium is time well spent, but hard on the bank balance. This old (I'm assuming wartime?) advertising beauty is officially going to have to reside on the floor propped against a wall until I somehow magic some more wall space.

cool cartography

My lovely secret santa,, knowing my penchant for all things geographical, brought me this amazing scratch off world map for Christmas. It is now gracing my bedroom wall, making me nostalgic about the places I've been, and bothering me about all the expanses of gold that are just screaming out the be scratched off. Better get planning...
