China Doll illustrations Blog

I have so many talented friends, I really do…

China Doll Illustrations is the beautiful work of my friend Meags. If you have a soft spot for quaint, quirky, pretty, pictures then you will love her just as much as I do. She will soon be selling prints too so get hold of her if you would like a bit of art in your life, they really are beautiful treasures.

It’s been awhile…

Golly gosh, I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in a month! It’s been a busy month to say the least: we went to South Africa for 4 weeks to visit the family (and I couldn’t waste this precious time online:), then there was packing, unpacking, traveling, flights, work, friends, dinners, beach (and vital tanning time I might add) but I am back. And it feels good to be back. I don’t know if anyone actual reads these thoughts I have but if you do, I promise there will be more thoughts to come.

Chat soon

The City Slickers

I like pigeons, I really do. Perhaps it’s because living in a studio apartment we can’t have any pets and these are the only animal contacts I have these days. But I like these little fellas. I even gave this guy some Special K (berry flavour) for breakfast this morning… I’m just waiting for him to tell all his mates now then waking up to a flock outside my window tomorrow morning for their breakfast.

Birthday Cupcake

The fabulous thing about celebrating your birthday in April in London, is switching the seasons.  I have traded in the usual Autumn celebrations for a sunny spring occasion (which by the way I am growing rather fond of!)

I am flying back home for a little visit next week so the guys and gals at work had an early little birthday treat for me and my other work colleague at work. Talk about yummo!

Guilt Free

Well kind of…. but I guess it’s better than ice cream! Thanks Marks and Spencer for your divine mango sorbet life would not be the same with out you! I ate the whole tub and only felt half the guilt:)
