The Convocation of the Fellowship
Royal Society ice sculpture.
I love stationary. Especially embossed stationary.
Prince William and Bryan Cox in a single day! I couldn't believe my luck!
This evening the boyf and I decided to walk home from the pub in South Kensington. As it was one of the longest days of the year, at around nine o'clock the sun was just setting and it was still warm. We found our way to these fountains, which I have never seen before (I admittedly still get completely lost in Hyde Park).
The last time I tried to put a photo of food on franbuckland.co.uk the idea (and photo) was shot down by the boyf. I'm inclined to agree; it's difficult to take good photos of food on an iPhone. Even this one, which looked great on screen, is a disappointment on Flikr.
The boyf was convinced that the orchid was on it's last legs. But oh no! Look how the Orchid-Bio has revived it (and a rigorous watering routine of ten minutes of submersion of roots every Thursday evening!).
Evensong at St Paul's Cathedral (for work, rather than religious preference) was interrupted by a fire alarm, allowing for a spot of photography and science celeb spotting (Melvin Bragg, Lord Martin Rees, Dame Jocelyn Bell-Burnell and the Archbishop of Canterbury).
Went back to the Flap this weekend for a bit of relaxation with the parents. I always love going to stay at the Flap because it is a beautiful house and mummy does like to fill it with nice things, like this lovely bunch of flowers and three gin and tonics with starflower ice cubes in them (check out as well my new stripy dress with a cornflower pattern hung over a chair).
Since I have begun writing on this again, I now just want to blog EVERYTHING. Every book I pick up, every film I see, every photo I take. It is just exhausting. I thought I would do a bit of a round up of what's been going on reading-wise first, all in one foul swoop.
