All sorts of nothing.

Some photos from around the house, as I listen to Wye Oak (just discovered them this evening; definitely worth checking out).

I’m trying a new way of putting comments under my photos because, quite simply, WordPress dislikes me and won’t let me format my posts how I want them.

A custom order of document wallets for my aunt. Possibly my favourite design of paper yet.

Love my new one-cup coffee maker. £5 in the sale, what a bargain!

The first of my garden peas. I am so excited that they actually grew.

So proud of myself, haha.

Thai squash curry (with my petit pois) - this was a.maz.ing.

I’m going to Liverpool tomorrow, and then to Alton Towers; see you at the weekend!

[Edit: sorry about the random formatting in this post; I cannot get the pictures and text to be at harmony, so I had to centre some of the photos.]

When I was a kid, I used to love filling our bird-table with breadcrumbs and water.  From what I remember, it looked something like this:

I love bird-tables.  And bird houses.
TK Maxx have some reallllly nice bird houses at the moment; any time I go in I just want to buy some, but I have nowhere I could put them.  I don’t even have anywhere to put a bird-table, which is pretty rubbish.  Maybe I could get something to hang at the kitchen window (but wouldn’t birds peck at the glass…?) like this…

Anyway, I wanted to share some cool bird houses and feeders that I love.
Just because.

Look at these little birdies having a picnic…

This one is just amazing:

Those ones are all so pretty, but in reality I should probably just make my own, like this…

Serves the purpose, right?
