I'll be your Emmylou






As I mentioned in my last post, my beloved Panasonic camera, it transpires, does not like water, and so is potentially preparing himself for a trip to the great camera shop in the sky.  Because I cannot bear to be without a camera I have been playing around with my old Canon 350D SLR and trying to get to grips with the settings and using the two different lenses I have.  We were planting out lots of bits in the garden on Monday so in the brief interval where the sun came out I thought I'd take a few practice snaps.  The close-up of Bodhi really makes me laugh!

I am definitely enjoying my new organised wardrobe I showed you in my last post.  As Gillian commented,  it's really lovely having everything laid out neatly rather than having to rifle through mounds of things to find the one thing that you're looking for to go with an outfit.  I have a few new things to show you that I've bought over the last couple of weeks and it's just feels nicer having them hanging neatly on show rather than being shoved in a drawer.  I'm still loving my Oasap creepers I featured a couple of posts ago but I am struggling to know what to wear them with as I want to make them a bit more exciting than just pairing them with jeans all the time.  What would you style them with?

I'm glad that, reading your comments on my last post, I'm not the only one who gets the blues during bouts of rain and cold.  I wish I was the sort of person who could write the day off, grab a blanket and settle down with a hot chocolate and a good film when the weather turns bad but the sad reality is that there is always so much to do in the house that it's rare I allow myself much time to just 'lay like broccoli'.  For the first time in ages I did exactly that on Monday night and snuggled down and watched Good Will Hunting, and I'm so glad I did, what an amazing film! I think one of the reasons I sometimes get quite stressed is that I always have a neverending to-do list which means I always feel intensely guilty when I'm stuck indoors but not taking the opportunity to tackle ironing mountain/eBay my pile of unwanted clothes/clean the house etc.  I am definitely going to make more time to do this over the next few weeks and months however.  All work and no play and all that....

  1. I have the exact opposite problem, I make too much time for myself and not enough time to tackle my to do list! I'm so lazy!

    The photos are lovely x

  4. Ahh I totally know what you mean, I am always feeling guilty especially if I don't get everything done on my to-do list! It's good to have a bit of down time, certainly something I need to do because I've been a total stress head recently. I think I'll join you on the relaxation pledge :) xx

  6. Oh your dog is gorgeous, as are those creepers, I'm absolutely dying to buy a pair! I know what you mean about not being able to relax, I always feel like there's something I should be doing! Definitely need to pledge some relaxation time! X

  7. I have the same problem! I work about 55 hours a week and always seem to have the longest to do list when I'm not working. I have to be away on holiday to stop. It's the only time I don't feel like I have to do to the ironing or put stuff on eBay. X

  9. Hi Rosie :) I am tickled by that first picture of your dog peeking around the flower pot. So cute! I love your creepers. I'd wear them with black tights and a knee length black pencil skirt with a wide belt and tucked in patterned blouse! They are great shoes with that leopard print.

  13. I always love looking at your photos! I hope you find some time to relax and unwind. I always have a long to-do list too but sometimes chill-out time is definitely needed! xx

  15. Love the snaps! looks like you've got the hang of the camera already!
    I really need a do nothing at all day, but have been having separate days off recently, or only 1 in a week so I am mega tired but still need to do washing and all that boring grown up stuff.
    I hope we both get to do nothing for a day soon!

  16. Glad you found some time out Rosie, it's good to do. I can't afford to write off whole days either- and even if I could my files, notes, highlighters, books and other revision fodder would only be in the way! But I have been trying to take an hour here and there- to watch an episode of Damages (without trying to do 5 other things at the same time) or read some of the 500 unread posts on my Bloglovin Dash....

    Loving that picture of Bohdi, he's too cute, you know that right?

    And as for the Creepers, what about with a light wait dress? Something cotton or chiffon with either pleats or a lot of fabric, as a bit of a contrast? I used to have a pair of TUK Kitty face shoes (people now think they are creepers, I disagree). They were the first thing I ever really properly saved up for and I wore them to death, used to wear them with skirts and dresses a lot!
