i don't know if i mentioned it but my birthday was in january.
january 13th as it goes.
those who know me will know how rubbish i am at sending emails,
sending birthday cards and telling short stories with punch-lines.
er, where was i ?
an old friend ( one of my oldest friends ) sent this to me as a birthday present.
my immediate thought was to send it straight back to her as you know how i feel about tea.
but then again it does have an owl on it and i like owls
( though not as much as i like foxes )
and though the colour looks a bit red here, it's actually orange in real life.
so reluctantly i decided to accept the gift and to wait for three months before saying
i bought some socks from a store in canada called haven
i can't praise haven highly enough.
they have a good website and the socks turned up in record time,
no excess customs charges, plus this little envelope was in the package
nice sticker on the back of the envelope
a thank-you card signed by the lad who packed my almonds.
what a sweet touch.
i mentioned i did a shoot last week with robo-cat
here's the second of the sole to sole pics we did
( she brought along two pairs of shoes for the shoot )
here's a shot that was always going to happen
good cop, bad cop.
ps. any comments about a good looking bird with skinny legs
and them using the eames house birds as a punchline are more than welcome.
