Weekend Inspiration – 03

Well, I’m not very good at keeping up am I! I wanted to share a picture every weekend, but it looks like I have missed about a month without even realising it… In fact, I have no idea where the time has gone. Well, I do really – I am hopefully about 3 weeks or a month away from finishing my Master’s thesis, so every day I am in the library staring at sheets and sheets of Excel data. I thought about sorting through photos while it did so, but it takes up so much memory and is likely to lock up as I so much as move the mouse! Unfortunately I forgot my knitting – I had the brilliant idea yesterday that it would be the perfect “waiting for Excel to finish its business” activity. Hopefully today though I will finish the Excel part, and move on to writing – that means less time for idle knitting hands though… 


I see that in my last post I was anxious for Summer to arrive. It has spectacularly failed to do so. I remember one day in Wellington, when the high was 7 degrees and I decided to not leave the house. The one positive note in that story is that it was the dead of winter, but today in Groningen it has hung around 8 degrees, and we are a week and a day away from the official first day of summer! Sob, cry cry. I’ve even had to bring out my lovely alpaca shawl again! Not that I’m crying about wearing it, but at this time of the season?! That’s definitely worth some tears…


Anyway, here is a little sunshine and inspiration. A tiny garden of very bright flowers in amongst the concrete.

  1. Meanwhile in Wellington, we await the commencement of winter which seems to be taking its time getting here (although yesterday was reasonable winter weather but probably still warmer than where you are). I am sure you’ll get the summer weather soon. And then you’ll wish it was winter again!
