Was so lucky to spend yesterday in Covent Garden on a wee tour with the lovely people of @coventgardenldn. I’ve mentioned before, this is one of the busiest places in London, for good reason, come at 9am and you will see a distinct lack of crowds. The Christmas lights (over 100,000 of them) have been switched on and all the decs are up now, this lovely car wasn’t here when I visited last week!
I had an epiphany yesterday (thanks @annabellemassera) and that’s to just immerse myself in life and enjoy it. I wrote a few weeks ago I was confused by the meaning of life and why we are all here, but I truly believe we are here to take each day as it comes, make the most of it and do what makes you happy. Instagram can be both brilliant and awful. All I can say is we will enjoy the everyday so much more if we stop comparing ourselves to others.
The meaning of my day today is to go snuggle my nieces, see my sister and brother in law, overeat on potatoes and then go home and snuggle Alex on the sofa. What are you all doing today?!

We were supposed to go to Kent today... but in the morning I thought I would enjoy this day more in my pyjamas, eating apple blackberry crumble made by my husband (How lucky I am 😁), watching a tv series and figuring out how to make my dog a new jumper ☺️ What a lovely day it was! 😃 How about you? Did you chill at home or go out?

We poped in for a sec to take a picture of this beautiful installation, hours later my sister and I found ourselves wondering around in Christmas Shop. @libertylondon you are dangerous 🙈
Вот так вот заскочили в Liberty с @osobennona на секундочку сделать фото инсталляции, а потом еле выпихнули себя из отдела с Рождественскими игрушками через несколько часов 😂 Опасный магазин, я вам скажу 🤔 #london_by_slava
Moody at the gate house the other morning...

Green Park is said to have originally been swampy burial ground for lepers from the nearby hospital at St James's. It was first enclosed in 16th century when it formed part of the estate of Poulteney family

In 1668, an area of the Poulteney estate known as Sandpit Field was surrendered to Charles II, who made the bulk of the land into a Royal Park as "Upper St James's Park" and enclosed it with a brick wall. He laid out the park's main walks and built an icehouse there to supply him with ice for cooling drinks in summer.

Off around gorgeous Derbyshire today. Heading to my all time favourite medieval beauty, Haddon Hall and hopefully Bakewell to pay a visit to the best Austrian sausage shop I know! The kasekrainer are amazing!! 😍 I will share everything with you on stories.
This is the duck pond in the village of Tissington, another quaint and beautiful Peak village. In the centre of the village stands Tissington Hall, home to the Fitzherbert family who have lived there since Elizabethan times. Don't know about the hall, but I'd fancy this house by the pond. Doesn't it look idyllic?
Happy Sunday ❤👋
there is a
temple,. a shrine, a mosque. a church where I kneel. Prayer should
bring us to an altar
where no walls or names exist. ls there not a region of love where the sovereignty is illumined nothing. where ecstasy gets poured into itself and becomes lost, where the wing is fully alive but hus no mind or body?
In my soul there is a temple, u shrine, a n1osque. a church that dissolve, that dissolve in God.

Tom left Poland before I could return the portable charger he lent me. I promised I would visit him in Liverpool one day (most likely years in the future)
2 months later after getting sick in Morocco, I returned to England to meet up with this old chap for a wild Halloween that included carrying this drunk girl home and kicking out this unwanted stranger who had been reported to the police and refused to leave.
After all this, I still haven’t returned his charger 😂
