a day out in... King's Lynn

I fancied an adventure last weekend. We moved to Lincolnshire about 18 months ago (we = me and S, my boyfriend) and were busy exploring the area to begin with. Adventures died down a while ago, so I decided it was time to go somewhere new for the day. So, off I dragged S to King's Lynn.

We had a slight detour on the way home (S likes to "just see what's down this road")and found ourselves driving down a road that felt like it was turning into nothing. Just as we were about to turn around, I noticed an barn owl fly over us. It then flew along side us for about 1/3 mile, swooping in the wind, and generally showing off. It was such an amazing thing to see. I've only ever caught glimpses of them fly past before, and only then a handful of times. I was such a priviledge to see it in such detail for such a long time.

Want to see a picture?

You'll just have to believe me when I say it was close!

presidents and their children

I can across this great photo album on the Time website - Presidents and their Children.

I think my favourites are Grant, FDR and Nixon (I love Julie Nixon's outfit).

the world's most boring polyvore set

My first attempt at using polyvore - a bedroom for the new house!

house hunting

We have decided it is time to take the plunge, and viewed houses for sale for the first time today. Six houses. Two possibles. No winners.

So far haven't come across any of this calibre.

It's going to be a long ride.
