Days like these: Raindrops falling on my head…

We’ve definitely had our fair share of rain recently here in the UK. So rather than getting bored indoors (and moaning a lot like I do) – here’s a few ideas on how to spend your rainy days.


Learn a new instrument! Ambitious but will keep you occupied for many of rainy days and nights.

Go through your wardrobe chucking away all those clothes that you never use – and drop them off to your nearest charity shop (when the rain allows)

Plan where to go on your summer holidays!

Drink lots and lots of tea


Luther – I spent a rainy bank holiday Monday watching season 1 of Luther (I may or may not have finished it all in one day…in my defence it only has six episodes… Yeah, that’s still quite a lot!)

Reruns of Grand Designs

A film Midnight in Paris (Owen Wilson makes you appreciate the rain – even if you’re not in Paris!)


Give in to the melancholy of falling raindrops and dark skies with tunes from Bill Callahan,Leonard Cohen and Ryan Adams


To the cinema in the middle of the day

Outside! Don’t let the rain stop you but go for a walk, get drenched and have a hot bath when you get home.

Hoping you’ll have a happier rainy days and that the sun will eventually come out too!

Weekend in Pictures…

So this weekend we decided to go for a Weekend of Nostalgia …

This is what it looked like.

Rereading old books.



I started rereading my absolute favourite, To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee for about he 18th time since I first picked it up at 15 sat next to a pool in California.



I reread one of my all time favourites Little Women, Louisa M. Alcott.


Sarah:  I curled up with my childhood favourite, Roald Dahl’s Matilda.

Listening to some old music.


Hanna: Listened to Ryan Adams, Flaming Lips and others that transported me back to some happy memories. ❤

Celeste: I filled my ears with ‘Slow Train Coming‘ Bob Dylan and ‘Gold‘ Ryan Adams.

Sarah: I relived some of my teen angst by listening to Julie turner and watching ‘My So-Called Life’.

Watching films/TV shows you know all the words to.



Go to some place with lovely memories. 


Hanna: I walked around Borough Market on Saturday tasting new things and talking with good people.

Sarah: A little memory place… A walk, with my boy, in some woodland called the mundens, where we spent much time walking and talking the spring of 2008, when we got together…

Write an old-fashioned letter 


Sarah: Here is my old-fashioned letter to my Granny.


Celeste: I have been writing letters on this beautiful stationary from present and correct .   Check out their gorgeous stuff but be warned you will want to buy it all!


Sam and Sarah 


Went to the Theatre together to see ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’.

 They would highly recommend it!

So that was our weekend in pictures.. and some friends too!
