On The Box ~ Binge watched a whole load of ‘Penny Dreadful’ episodes. I love this show which is set in Victorian England and brings to life many gothic favourites such as Frankenstein and Dorian Grey. Reeve Carney and Josh Hartnett are total eyecandy. 🙂 And Eva Green is just mesmorising as the mysterious Vanessa Ives. Also this month I enjoyed the BBC adaptation of ‘The Outcast’ (heartbreaking and beautiful) and I’m still obsessed with ‘Orange is the New Black’ of course…
Glamping ~ This month we tried Glamping for the first time.Three nights in a cozy Shepherd’s Hut in The Lake District. REALLY recommend it.Read my post if you fancy a little tour of the snug interior of Gerdy Hut.
Books ~ Mysteries are solved over tea and iced buns in ‘The Mystery of The Clockwork Sparrow’ a Charming tale of mobsters amongst the millinery , heroines with hats , secret codes and dastardly villians. A sort of Nancy Drew meets Mr Selfridge.Great fun.:)
Blog Birthday Give Away ~ July means ‘Sunshine and Celandines’ is 3 years old!!! In celebration I hosted a little giveaway ~ the delightful Flower Press above. Thanks to everyone who liked and commented. 😀 And the winner ( randomly drawn from a flower pot ! ) is……….. Janey from ‘ Is that you Darling’. Well done Janey!! I will be in touch.
Doggy Paddles ~ Inspired by a couple of recent trips to the Lake District we have pinned a map on the wall to show the lakes and tarns that Hugo has taken a dip in. So far there have been five! Plenty more to go then.He loves the water.Are we sad dog owners or what!! 🙂
