As I’m waking up to sunshine this morning, I am excited about plans for the day. A good nature walk with a couple of friends. Just what my soul needs✨
I’ve been putting my phone away as much as I can to put some clear boundaries between work time and rest time. I’m still figuring out how to do that most effectively, so I am present here enough and fully switched off when I’m not working. What boundaries or soft rules do you maintain when it comes to social media?
Goal for my AW/18 wardrobe = everything must go with my yellow coat 😍
Sweater dress (the cosiest and softest ever!) is a bargain from @uniqlo, boots are from @tuclothing (and the wide fit justttt do up on my chunky calves) and my London Tan @leathersatchel is hiding by my side. The star of the show is my @lauraashleyuk coat. The perfect shade of yellow, true to size and really cosy. Perfect for an Autumn walk! 🍁

Is this how I'm going to be today?" 🌸 ------------------------------------------------

What was the craziest thing you did when you were a child? 👿
When I was four, I disappeared from a village festival I attended with my parents since I thought it was annoying. I left the tent, walked alongside the creek (into the wrong direction) and stranded in the next village where the police already waited for me. I can remember this pretty well, especially my feelings when I was about getting lost and discovering everything around me in the meantime. Bizarrely, I was really excited and happy. 👣
Today gettting lost is something I'm trying to avoid. I technically even can't get lost since I'm having my smartphone with me all the time. But sometimes I think I should abandon my regular paths and walk around more aimlessly in order to find something I haven't looked for? 😶
“A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are.” - Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
Throwback to witnessing Bath from quite a height. The walk was so worth it to see Bath from this perspective. I had no words, I was speechless both in voice and thought and was content to just stare at the hundreds of buildings and cars and people and then to catch a glimpse of the rolling hills beyond. Bath, you have my heart.
I finally have some time to take some new photos for Instagram today and will probably put them on my story later so keep your eyes peeled 👀
What is your favourite city?
#ad What does "rich" mean to you? Are you more "experience rich" or "material rich". Take the new @samiguel_uk online experiment to #findyourrich , link in bio! Using facial tracking technology, the test will see how you instinctively react to footage depicting concepts of wealth, collecting your data into a richness score to uncover the type of "rich" you truly value.
I got 65% experience rich - 35% material rich, I am "The Paladin" - "you don't need money, you don't need fame, in fact all you need is excitement and adventure". Yep, that's me!

We had a lovely slow day today followed by a sunset walk along the canal. The house and garden are tidy, I’ve dropped the kids off at my mums and we’ve just inhaled a Chinese for tea. Some wine and a film is on the agenda. Hope everyone’s having a lovely Saturday 💙
I can hardly bare how fast time seems to be passing by at the moment; how on earth is this photo a whole year old?!
They both look so little here, I’ve loved watching them grow this year, mad to think 2018 is almost out already!
"When I was fifteen, all I wanted was to go off to some other world, a place beyond anybody’s reach. A place beyond the flow of time.”
- But there’s no place like that in this world.
- Exactly. Which is why I’m living here, in this world where things are continually damaged, where the heart is fickle, where time flows past without a break." ~ Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore.
Day 17 of @thewanderingrosechild's photo challenge is A New Perspective. I've featured these old-timey looking clocks a couple of times before, because I just love them, but this was from a different kind of angle. It made me think of a ticking clock counting down the time we have with each season, especially this year, when we really only had a week or two of autumnal temperatures and colors, and it feels like we jumped straight from summer to winter. Oh well, with nature, unpredictability is just part of the package, and you have to roll with it. I did manage a few more autumn pictures if you all don't mind seeing them still. Well, that was a long, incoherent ramble, wasn't it? 😂 Have a great Saturday, friends! 😊
Imagine if we showered ourselves and others with the kind of compassion we want to see in the world, now that would be something! Now who wants to borrow my loud speaker? It’s good for dialling up words of kindness and it’s pretty useful for amplifying voices of others so that they too can be heard. #WHPcommunity
Будто нервные окончания 🖤
Каждый раз, когда я вижу объявление о сборе на лечение ребенка, вспоминаю об этой притче.
Прилетел на Землю инопланетянин, чтобы внести землян в «Каталог разумных цивилизаций» и спрашивает:
– На этой планете много ресурсов и её жители обладают достаточным уровнем развития для безбедного существования. Несмотря на это огромная доля населения не доедает или голодает, не имеет доступа к питьевой воде. В чём причина?
– У нас не хватает Денег на то, чтобы обеспечить, необходимым, всё население. Мы делаем что можем!
- Почему при всех ваших возможностях так много бездомных?
- Денег не хватает.
- Почему вы подвергаете свою планету, свой Дом, такому загрязнению?
- Денег нет, чтоб устроить иначе...
- Почему так много больных, которых можно вылечить?
- Денег не хватает, чтобы помочь каждому.
- Что-же это за ресурс такой дефицитный, который вам не дает нормально жить? Вы добываете его на других планетах? Может вам помочь его завезти?
- (потупясь) Завозить ничего не надо, мы их сами печатаем.
И вычеркнул инопланетянин землян из списка разумных существ....
The problem with a landscape/portrait gallery is that sometimes the photo I want to post is the wrong way up 😬 like today.
Because some photos are too joyful to keep on the camera roll...
🏔 If this road could take you wherever you wish to go to, where would you go?
This is actually the road to Cherrapunjee which is a beautiful place I'll never forget. 💚
Happiness is a simple thing and for us it means grandparents coming to town after so long 🍂🍁la felicità arriva più che mai dalle cose normali che hanno un sapore eccezionale, come l’arrivo dei nonni dopo mesi che mancavano qui a Milano. Non so, tra me e i miei figli, chi fa più salti di gioia
