yesterday, i had a very rare & very lovely day off. the weather was absolutely beautiful, so i made myself a picnic and took myself on a very long walk down to the quarries. it's a beautiful beautiful area where i live, hidden away. it's not even on council records, that's how few people know about it :) but it's beautiful, utterly utterly beautiful & had a stillness and magnitude and beauty about it that, of course, my shoddy little 7.2 megapixels digital camera doesn't quite manage to capture :) i tried my very best though, & there are lots more photos on my flickr if you'd like to take a look.

i'm so ridiculously lucky to live where i live. it really is incredibly stunning, in ways i'll never be able to photograph or describe, & i love it ever such a lot. i've always loved the forests - they're incredibly beautiful places, and i think it's something about how old they are, how long they've been there, that makes me feel incredibly safe. silly though it sounds, i sort of know who i am, in the forest :) i'll be very sad to leave!

i'd also just like to quickly say how ridiculously lucky i feel to have such lovely readers. i appreciate every single one of you (even if i'm terrible at showing it!), i really really do, & you're all so incredibly, incredibly lovely.

right, silliness over! back to work. i'll post again soon, i promise! ♥

I share your thoughts about forests, I can spend all free time outside the town too.

You ARE really lucky. Those photos are so perfect and I am very jealous now. I was going to buy a cardigan almost identical to that one, but someone stole it from my very arms. I like your blog a lot. xx

lovely pictures, lovely sight and lovely you! :) you look so cute, what an adorable outfit, especially the cardigan!
hope you're doing great holly!

Raquel said...

oh you are so kind darling!! I would love a pair! :)
about your necklace, I didn't forgot! but I just haven't found a pretty key yet. though I was thinking of sending you mine, because I just used it twice so I thought you could give it more using :)
what do you think? I can put another ribbon if you like another colour. send me an e-mail.

kiss and happy weekend!
