Having a few days off between Christmas and New Year was a much needed break from work and the perfect opportunity to spend time with friends, go to the cinema and go out and explore the city during the day. This one day in particular, I went to the movies to see “Paddington”, which although it is a children’s film, it was very entertaining. It made me laugh and that’s exactly what I needed to do.

Old McDonald had a….

January 23, 2013

Farm! These were taken one day after work, when we stopped at the yard, so Iain could take care of his horse, on our way to Notts. As he was doing it I had to make myself busy and what better way than chasing all the animals around with a camera in hand?

As pointed out by Dr David, the Estonian sheep herder style is now in fashion, as can be seen by my furry vest.

BEST Bag in the World:  from Rough Trade Records (I forgot the name of the guy who designed it though), Bird Dress: from Camden Market (can also be seen here), Sheep Herder Vest: Primark, Boots: Zara, Long sleeve Tshirt: H&M
