Today I ambled out of work to grab a sandwich before my next meeting and as I left Pret A Manger I noticed something. A place I always knew was there, a place I used to frequent regularly in the olden days when I was an artsy gal about town (pre kids and mortgages and real jobs in other words), a place I hadn't darkened the door of in years. And today, even with a Very Important Meeting about to start within the next ten minutes (and a crayfish and rocket sarnie to be gobbled beforehand), I went in. I went in and I walked about and I looked. I just looked. For ten minutes. And it felt so good.
the place was this
and the things I looked at were this and this
and over the weekend I plan to go to this or I will have missed it, and that would not do at all
I couldn't do a post without some pictures so here you go
[yes those are silver stars on the hyacinths...don't ask]
the only new year's resolution I will publicly admit is to somehow learn to use my lovely camera on something other than auto mode...
to this end I'll be taking photojojo's advice (the photos above are a rather tentative start to my project365 - now I have to work out what I am supposed to do with them next, if anything...)
