Some Sky


Our new apartment (and yes one day I will get around to snapping some shots of it for you), is up in the clouds at the top of our building. This makes for some pretty great views and magical sunsets. We were excited to finally have a place that didn't just look in on the neighbours' brick wall!

Junk at Camelot


A few weeks ago we went out to Camelot to see Mic Conway's National Junk band, supported by our friends in the Rusty Spring Syncopators. I have been wanting to get out to this venue ever since it opened! It's owner, Yaron, is an amazing collector of everything 'camels' - the place is chocker-block with quirky bits and pieces of camel-related things he has acquired over the years. It is like sitting in a cabinet of curiosities, with the added bonus of yummy food and great music.

The bands were such fun. I had never seen Mic Conway's group - but am now a huge fan. They were seriously entertaining. Not only did they produce a great sound, but there was tap dancing, humour and magic tricks! I can't wait to go see them again!

I wore a new (to me) dress, made of the most lovely silk. It might just be my new favourite!
