I Wonder If You Wonder

I found this on tumlr, somewhere or other. As you do. It's such a nice depiction of how everyone feels about other people - especially when you're not sure if another person feels the same way as you so about them. Very nicely set against the cloudy forest image. Perfect. Have a wonderful day. 

I'm sure they are wondering too. 

The Difficulty of C.S. Lewis

I've just printed this picture and put it up on my desk at work.

It reminds me of several things, including the annoying moment when you look down into your mug and realise you've finished your tea and now have to make another, the horrible realisation that the book you're savoring is coming to an end (so you only read a little at a time and carry it around with you to make it feel as if it goes for a little longer), and C.S. Lewis who famously wrote the Narnia series.

So, do yourself a favour and buy a bigger mug and a longer book next time you're out. Although, you'll be hard-pressed finding one big enough or long enough to suit us.

Afternoon Gin and Tonics

I'm terribly sorry I've been away so long.

You may have been clicking on the blog - hoping to see something new, only to be disappointed. I'd abandoned you in a way, and for that I am deeply regretful. However, it's summer in the northern hemisphere of this delightful planet and it's getting warmer in the southern hemisphere. That means one thing in particular for me: gin and tonics with crushed cucumber, lemon and ice by the pool or ocean. On a deckchair. In the sun. With RayBans on. And Vampire Weekend's first album playing cheerfully in the corner.

So, in celebration of all that is summer and Vampire Weekend-ish please download this amazing desktop screensaver and get 'drunk' on life. And turquoise. Using those funny, lithe bendy straws.

Have a wonderful end to your week everyone.
