It is Monday. It is a beautiful Monday here in Oxford and one can dream looking at the bright beautiful sky. I like my Mondays, I like my new beginnings, I love clear blue skies on a crispy morning… but my mood is fragile… I barely slept last night, insomnia I think the little bugger that kept me awake is called, and if her and I meet again she's in for a treat. You've been warned, insomnia, enter at your own risk!
I'm not a great fan of clothes shopping, but I can spend hours in a fabric or knitting shop. I like to see every item and feel its texture and absorbe the atmosphere. No matter how tidy and organised (or not, for that matter) the shop is, it's always a treat for me to go in and explore! I just *love* it. I love everything about it; the possibilities of all those materials, the colours, the textures, observing other people falling under the same spell. If they start serving tea and cake at these places I'm never coming out again!
