...much like everybody's pant legs. And our shoes.

I have the mid-winter I think I need a vacation blahs, so I've been satiating myself with the internet in the meantime. I have been spending an awful lot of time coveting wallpaper, admiring my new threadless tees, flickring favourites, imagining pretty colours, working on lots of client work, dreaming of kittens (there are none to be had!), reading and drinking tea in the bath, plotting the design of my cosies for the Egg Cosy Swap, listening to new music from the arctic monkeys, cat power, the jessica fletchers, and mostly just trying to ignore the fact that it's -20 outside.
