Blackboards are all over the design websites and magazines these days (have they been and gone, in fact?).
On Sunday I saw a novel alternative to painting your fridge door - how about the hood of your car!
In the very glamorous location of outside Sainsburys, up pulled an old red Escort-type car, complete with boy-racer driver. Unfortunately the blackboard had boy-racer type comments all over it (complete with 'rude' words), so no pictures were taken!

S and I grabbed a few hours on our own to go for a walk. St Cross is one of my favourite parts of Winchester. The meadows and abbey are so beautiful, and I have a lot of happy memories of sunny days spent there as a child.
We decided to have a picnic on my favourite bench. It turned out to be a picnic (and a walk) in the rain. We were having a lovely time, eating our cheese sandwiches, and watching the cows and horses.
Then someone got a bit inquisitive.
We made our way back into town, past the Winchester College buildings - this part of town is hidden away from the main streets, and feels very old fashioned.
At the Cathedral, they have a regular book stall, tucked away under cover. For some reason, I have never had a look at it before, but it was fantastic. I didn't buy anything, but spent a pleasant 10 minutes browsing.
