A view of Hampshire through my lens

Murphy's Law, Sod's Law......whatever you want to call it.  Just when the weather turned gloriously beautiful with temperature rising to an incredibly warm 17˚C (by English standard. It's cold if we're talking Kiwi weather here), all 3 of us got sick. Anyone looking to lose a few kilos without wanting to diet.....just flick me an email and I'll send one of us to infect you...... free of charge.

So I dragged my wretched posterior and Lil L (the husband was absolutely adamant about not moving his) out to enjoy the sunshine. The Saturday market was out in full force along with the crowds. We vowed to get the crepe when we're both feeling better. Lil L had a chance to write a letter to God at the Cathedral while I caught up with a friend.

When people think of England, the color "grey" comes to mind but the minute the sun's out, it's easily one of the most beautiful countries I've ever lived in.

  1. So pretty, love your pics! And so true - the minute the sun is out, it just takes your breath away, doesn't it?

    Also Little L? Not so little anymore :) I hope you all feel better soon!

  2. Really really like those colours and views. Kind of off topic, here is a link to sweatpants that you might like, on sale on Yoow. It is linen/silk blend and not too expensive (price in euros). I thought of you about it (yes I am feeding your love for sweatpants !!) As I did not know how to contact you through email. Here we are : http://www.yoox.com/fr/43190621TG/item?dept=clothingwomen#sts=sr_clothingwomen80&cod10=43190621TG&sizeId=
    I apologize if this is contrary to your blog policy.

    1. Oooh. That's not bad at all. I'm surprised to read that it's made of linen and silk. Ack. Stop feeding my obsession. I've got to stop because that's all I'm buying these days. Sweats.
