and and and this

into the wild....


i happily gave all my words away already tonight.

it has taken hours and hours to upload these pictures. i mean, Hours. kitchen board can bloody well wait, ok?


i am sitting over my desk, like The Hunchback From Notredamme (The Paw Paw Stealer - LIKE MY DAD ALWAYS SAYS...not me) drooling into a glass of wine; because this has taken so long i am now not far from being completely sozzled, and on the verge of becoming dangerously sentimental....

so then. toooooooooooodely old pip, You. bisous xxx - hot dry half moon summer night ones when everything is crackly x j

I'm now convinced you live on a nearby friendly planet ... so, when's the rocket flight from here to there?

Oh I so love you - (I'm pissed, but what great lovely vibrant photos that CANNOT fail to bring a smile to your face - and it's probably not in the least bit appropriate to say that to someone you've never met, but feel like you know, who's far far away but could be in the same room) Lx xx
