My computer has been asleep for almost ten weeks now. In December, we moved house again (see above), and until yesterday we've been without internet or a landline the entire time. (Waiting for the British Telephone guy is a lot like Waiting for Godot-he just never shows.) This is the reason I haven't posted here since before Christmas, but neglecting my blog has been the least of the inconveniences I've experienced living offline. I remember reading an article in the New York Times a couple of years ago about a couple living the simple life in a yurt in remotest Alaska-they decided they could live without indoor plumbing, but not without broadband. So I don't feel too whiny by saying that I haven't really enjoyed living like a Luddite, cut off from Google maps, online grocery shopping and the math website Jake's meant to be using for homework.
Anyhow, I'm back now, and looking forward to sharing some new ideas and inspiration, and maybe finally getting some stuff up in the shop portion of this site for those with Etsy aversions. For now, I'll start off with just a few photos of what's been going on around here in the couple of months since we moved, and will get back to more regularly scheduled posting soon enough. Thanks to those of you persistent enough to check back after such a long hiatus!
I hope you're also enjoying the slightly longer days that are slowly creeping in as we enter the final stretch of winter. xx
