The Sunday Project

A rarity – I did something at the weekend, I took my camera out, and I’m blogging about it. I don’t want to scare you guys off, but I’m blogging about it on the same day it happened (barely, but it still counts).

I popped into town today to meet up with Sarah and her husband, and after a little nose around an antiques fair at the Forge where they had their wedding, then we headed to the inaugural Sunday Project at Hart’s Bakery.



We headed down about half 12ish, so it looks like we missed most of the food – the weather was so good so it had been super popular already! There were still some interesting little stalls, I took a few pics of some of the stalls, but it was so busy, I couldn’t get pics of them all!


These cards were made by de Winton Paper Co, who are based near Exeter. The cards were so beautiful!


Lily Violet May can usually be found outside the entrance to Temple Meads


Loof Terrariums were there as well, with cute little terrariums with succulents in. We also checked out the STRANGE stall, who have beautiful homeware, and had a cider from the Birch stall.

Pinkification, part eleven billion

It’s been a while since I had a grump about things being pink for no reason but it still annoys me a lot. The latest version of this came about this week from when I went to buy a new pair of trainers. I’ve been wearing these ones that I was sent in 2013 so it was about time that I went to buy a new pair. I headed to DW Sports after work and had someone begrudgingly help me (sorry to get you to do your job, mate) find a pair of trainers that were suitable for what I do at the gym. The shoe section was bad enough for neon colours but I found a pair that were fairly dark and plain.

So then I headed over to the bag section to find a new gym bag…


Seriously. What’s with the colours? All I’m looking for is a plain bag, with a shoe section if possible, that’s not completely ugly. I’m using a Quiksilver duffle bag that I bought at uni on a whim in 2003 (and have never really used since then) but it’s starting to get battered and the lining is peeling after a years daily use.

If you’ve seen a nice bag, please tell me. I can’t carry a bag that is brighter than the sun.
