The June long weekend has already been and gone, so we really are in winter now and today was miserably grey and dull. I've said it here before many times, I don't like winter, but I think I'm going to have to start embracing it, we've still got at least two months to get through. Here's a few things to help:
1. Loopy Mango beanie knit kit - something to do on those long nights, and then wear out and about 2. Netflix - I've been watching lots of films like Echo Park, Begin Again and Lola Versus 3. Katia Carlotta mug - for all those cups of tea, I was given one for my birthday and it's the best 4. Kester Black nail varnish - again, something to do in the evenings, I'm also keen to try the Go To Skincare pinky-nuddy-lips 5. Toast felt slippers - my ugg boots are on the way out, and these are cute 6. Kate and Kate blanket - how lovely is this blanket! 7. Alla Fratelli cookbook - 'cause a bowl of pasta is a good thing for winter.

Jerry: He turned 4 last week and it only felt right to take his portrait and share it here too. My first baby and still very much my sooky baby. Life's tough for a spoilt spaniel, his eyes suggest a tough life of lolling on the couch we keep in our bedroom just for him, of getting lots of baby breakfast/lunch/dinner leftovers and going for walks with the pram. He sighs emphatically and barks for no reason at all, other than to drive me crazy. He is beautiful and lovely, and very much a member of our family.

Here are a few random things:
I finished knitting Elroy's cardigan, pretty sure that was within my deadline? It is with my mum at the moment for sewing, because I am really crap at sewing. I will share some photographs because I feel quite chuffed even though it is not perfect.
Matt informed me that City Calm Down are touring in September and I'm excited to see a new-to-me band, their cover of Spanish Sahara is so so good. Speaking of new music, Frankie Sinatra!! Cannot wait to hear the album, I think we will have a listening party with our friends, because Since I Left You was the album of the summer between year 12 and uni, and I can't believe that was 16 years ago and now we all have children.
Issue 3 of the Lunch Lady mag arrived and it just keeps getting better.
I want to go and see this film.
