Hammering rain against my window was my alarm today, after a twelve hour sleep marathon i was happy to wake up knowing that it was miserable weather outside as i was so happily hibernated under a mass of duvet and pillows; Simon and Garfunkel gently easing me into consciousness.

Recently i've been addicted to Lemon Curd, so today i decided to make a new batch.
First task, Carole King full blast.

Beaten eggs, lemon zest and juice, sugar and melted butter later, this is what i ended up with.

Pretty darn neato i'd say.... and what better way to test the result than to smear it all over a big chunk of fruit loaf. Delicious.

Housewifing over, it was time to nip down the road to say a loving goodbye to Carly Hind, who had made us all happy by joining us on Eden Street for a long weekend.

My final task of the day was to lay my head back down on my favourite pillow, and dream of one day owning a closet that looks something like this....... swoon.


Waking up in a new bed and freshly dressed room is one of the best feelings in the world, i'd say, and that is exactly what happened to me this morning.
As you already know my bedroom is one of my favourite places of all time, and this has never been more true than now.
I only left the four walls to visit that Louise Waugh and watch films and stuff our faces (standard).

Upon my return the room was filled with dim lamp light, Laura Marling, Fleet Foxes and Noah and the Whale drifted from the record player and snuggled up tight next to me between the sheets.
Oh Sunday, you are just perfect.


My first Sunday waking up aged 26 was not an enjoyable one, a hangover was desperately trying to ruin my day... and do you know what, it pretty much did.
I managed to get through the day however by filling my withered brain cells with thoughts of what an amazing Birthday it had been. 25 was not a kind year and i couldn't wait to fully put it behind me.
So now i'm a year older and filled with promise that 26 and I are going to be the best of friends.

"Day by day, old joy comes back to me.
Forget the things that get away, forget the things that get away.
Don't dream of yesterday, don't dream of yesterday."
- Noah and the Whale


With all this glorious weather we've had recently, my favourite thing to do is start my day with a book and my beautiful Elliott on top of our conservatory roof. I've had a bit of a dry patch for reading recently, however 'The Time Traveler's Wife' always seems to water the drought. So what with all this Royal Wedding excitement, i decided to relive the wedding of Henry and Clare.

"There was a boat on the surface of the ocean, and we all swam up to see the boat. It was just a little sail boat, and my mother was on it all by herself. I swam up to her and she was surprised to see me there, she said Why Clare, i thought you were getting married today, and i suddenly realised, the way you do in dreams, that i couldn't get married to Henry if I was a mermaid, and I started to cry, and then I woke up and it was the middle of the night. So I lay there for a while in the dark and made up that I became a regular woman, like in the Little Mermaid except I didn't have any of that nonsense about hideous pain in my feet or getting my tongue cut out. Hans Christian Andersen must have been a very strange and sad person. Then i went back to sleep and now I am in bed and Henry and I are getting married today."

Day Three of the Royal Wedding celebrations; and what a wonderful day it was - Truly beautiful, i've thought of nothing else since, it was the turn of the Sealey's to do the hosting.
Congratulations William and Catherine, i wish you a lifetime of infinite happiness.
