I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

The Romance of the Middle Ages, exhibition at the Bodleian Library, Oxford.

I don’t know how often these exhibitions change, but at the moment there is a selection of really, really, really old romantic books.

I couldn’t believe how old some of these book were! It was worth going in just to see how old they were! Books included an original Shakespeare, Chaucer and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight from c.1400. The illustrations and calligraphy – much in gold leaf – were stunning. As well as this collection of ancient huge thick books, you could also see an original script, covered in director’s notes from Monty Python’s Holy Grail. (It was fairly high up in the cabinet, but be warned if you’re visiting with kids – it’s the bit about the oral sex!)

It is only one room, but it is another free attraction in Oxford, and well worth popping in to have a look.

UK,

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….
