Autumn in Aberdeenshire

Last week we had a mini roadtrip to to Scotland to see Gavin's family. (By which I mean: we drove to and from Aberdeenshire with a few flyby stops on the way, but calling it a roadtrip makes driving over 800 miles sound much more fun. It was fun! I don't think either of us are long distance driving pros, but we have a system that works pretty well for us. That is: we stop and swap regularly, and we've both decided that the passenger's job is to both carry the conversation and to be basically the equivalent of a video game HUD. HUDs don't judge you. They are helpful and informative. I recommend this attitude very much.)

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Last week we took a day trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. There's a pretty big installation by Not Vital at the moment, which features a lot of awesome reflective things that are just asking for weird and wonderful mirror selfies. The mirror selfie is a big favourite of mine (whether or not Mr Vital intended his work to be used this way...)

Meet My Rats

(Firstly, just to address the elephant in the room: yes, it has indeed been nearly two years since my last blog post here, goodness me. I've given the blog a little refresh and I'm back. Hope you like it!)

I'd like to introduce you to the two rats that now live with me....

Blanchland & Haunting Myself

I always get super excited to go back to the North East, it still feels like my home! I don't think that'll ever change. This past weekend I got to spend a lovely wintery day in Northumberland where I got a bit camera happy. These were all taken in and around Blanchland, after a terrifying night in which I was convinced the ghost of Dorothy Forster was coming for me (what had happened, in fact, was that I'd kicked the hot water bottle off my bed unknowingly, and thus was actually haunting myself, which is... absolutely as ridiculous as it sounds. Nice one, Alice.)
