Random Stuff #26

I’m all over the place at the moment.

I want to do so many things and I end up doing hardly anything.

I want to get the garden ready for the summer, and yet I fear that the summer’s almost over. I want to post about all my recent travels. That was, after all, the point of this blog. Sharing stories and tips. To inspire fellow travellers. I want to post about the everyday. I want a blog redesign with more identify and bigger photos.

And right now, it’s all defeating me. I do nothing. Actually, that’s not quite true. I procrastinate. And I watch a lot (a lot) of football.

The problem with you“, said the Other Half a little while back, “is that you want too much”.

Hmmm. Well, why don’t you go and enjoy the links below while I ponder this one?


> Yes. I may have three pairs of welly boots already (a city pair, a seaside pair and a posh pair), but I still want these pretty Aigle Malouine wellies. Look at them. That Liberty print is lovely and pastoral

> Do I want to help The Bowes Museum with their project to redisplay and conserve their 15th-century Flemish altarpiece? Of course I do

> Edward Bawden’s prints of Liverpool Street? I want them

> There is nothing wrong with wanting to be watching gorgeous sunsets every night. But for that you need sun. I make do with Joseph Gray’s addictive digital replacement for the act of watching the sun set (via The Curious Brain). There’s further info about the project here

> And my world would be greatly improved with a Livingstone globe from London’s very own globemakers, Bellerby & Co. I’m obsessed. Ochre? Blue? I don’t really mind which to be honest. I just know that my life needs a Bellerby & Co globe. And yes, it does get better, The lovely people at Bellerby & Co can ‘personalise the cartography to highlight all those special places and moments’ in my life
