A little snapshot of our local area - this house is one in a listed terrace built in 1863. This street is on the border between Nottingham City and an area called St Ann's. Much of old St Ann's was demolished during the 60s and 70s but this row of Victorian houses remains, a leafy grove filled with Jasmine and honeysuckle. There is even an almond tree!
My 5 year old's best friend is having a birthday party, so my daughter asked if I could make a block printed apron as a birthday present. I thought my running rabbits would be an appropriate print, hope she likes it?

C18H10N2O4 the Molecular Formula for #Melanin
The substance that is responsible for the dark pigmentation and colour of hair, skin (fur and feathers in animals).
Wars were started, people enslaved and killed over this substance. This is literally what most of the world is fighting over, the real liquid gold.
We all have it, some just have it more concentrated than others.
Today was particularly damp, and the drawing dark justified an unashamedly cosy night in!! So I thought I'd get festive to the max 👌🍷 Dinner in front of the fire consists of @sallysbakeblog
cinnamon apple pies (all of her recipes are amazing), @waitroseandpartners
Christmas fudge (Yes, really) and wine. Also lit my @thewhitecompany
winter candle for the first time this year 🌲
The lovely pumpkins are from the wonderful local @stonebridgecityfarm
Also featuring our favourite @leftlionmagazine

Hoping everyone is feeling cosy out there!
P.s. oh Yes! Apples from our allotment at @stannsallotments.
Their open apple day is next week - I'd recommend everyone local take a stroll around the unique site :-)

This song #mariel
was written by #oswaldogolijov
and premiered by #mayabeiser
... i have loved this piece of music for some time now because it just seems to convey so much feeling. Golijov says of it; ‘i wrote this piece in memory of my friend Mariel Strubrin. I attempted to capture that short instant before grief, in which one learns of the sudden death of a friend who was full of life; a single moment frozen forever in ones memory...’ I danced to this today on repeat, not thinking specifically about the meaning of the song, but yes... i think that moment just before grief strikes is almost as poignant as the moment it does. •
I was sat having dinner in a posh (ish) restaurant with my daughters, they had just finished their pudding and the waitress gave me the bill... i refused to pay for my Margarita because it was substandard :-) i had already sent the first one back complaining that i didn’t want to pay £8 for something that was Margarita flavoured(i like my cocktails), so when i got pretty much the same thing back, there was no way i was paying for it. What an absolute #gobshite
:-) and then i got the text...initially i was unclear which Dan, as i know a few, but really it was the last Dan i would have guessed, cos as with Golijov’s Mariel, he was just too full of life and vitality. •
runs underneath Addison Street and through the #arboretumnottingham
... felt really powerful dancing in the tunnel with my headphones on instead of my little speaker playing... a bit like being locked in my own private theatre... i wasn’t actually thinking of Dan today, was mainly thinking about how much i love #autumn
and how it makes #death
so very beautiful with all it’s reds and yellows and browns... not really like any other form of death, except perhaps for that of a star... #dancersofinstagram #hoopdance #dancingoutdoors #ukhoopers #hoopflow #hoopgymnastics #bridge #blackdancers #contemporarydance #utilisingspace #nottinghamcreatives #dianesimeipoetwriter #classicalmusic #musicthatmovesyou #absentfriends #friendship #idancebecauseihaveto #instagood #dancer
