Walking to work this morning, I spotted these amazing sunflowers growing outside someone’s terrace. So cheerful! I wonder if all the chumps stuck in traffic were cheered by the happy faces of these sunflowers?
How hilarious are sunflowers though?! Did anyone else have a rafia hat with a plastic sunflower stuck to in in the early nineties? I thought I was so stylish…. I also remember having a blue ceramic vase with a bunch of plastic sunflowers in it in my room when I was a kid. Matched the whole blue and yellow theme I had at the time. Complete with those puffy roman-type blinds, what are they called? Ghastly stuff. I can’t believe my mum let me. In fact, I think I made her make them for me. Poor mum.
Anyway – Easter long weekend is off to a good start despite the fact that I am working on Saturday and that Tom is working all weekend as per usual….because there was a bunny on my desk when I got to work! YAY!
And yes, that is my Dark was the night CD. Did I mention already how good it is?!?! Sufjan Stevens, The National, Arcade Fire, The Decemberists, The New Pornographers plus loads more. So good people.
And yes, Brother dearest, that is your mp3 player. Thanks. I love it. Even more now that it has a cosy little cover knitted with bamboo yarn. It was actually a half finished booty, repurposed for the task at hand. So cosy in my hand…goes nicely with a warm cup of soup to pour down my ears!
