Stay and wander

A weekend in November…a definite chill in the air, the clear skies and beautiful, fading light hinting perhaps that winter is not too far away.  An opportunity to make the most of a slow weekend…a few short wanders with Boris then returning home to snuggle up on the sofa with a large pot of tea, chunky slices of tea brack, a film and a magazine at the ready.

‘Atonement’ was my film of choice yesterday. I’ve watched it before, of course, but it’s always comforting to return to a favourite movie and the period costumes, beautiful setting and  story line had me lost in nostalgia. And although I know the ending, I still shed a tear.

Another pot of tea on the go and with Boris asleep beside me, I picked up my copy of ‘Rucksack’ magazine and let my mind wander through the pages of beautiful photography and inspiring words. Rucksack is an online journal and biannual publication celebrating a passion for adventure, photography and storytelling of the outdoors.  Volume One ‘ The Winter Issue’ is truly an inspiring read, full of stunning winter landscapes and words that capture the beauty of winter…words I wish I had written myself

This is one of my favourite pieces..


Sunday morning is here already and I have some coffee on the go, before getting ready to go out for lunch and a dander around a record and craft fair. In the meantime, if you want to wander some more, please check out the lovely blog The Travel Pictorium  , who coincidentally won my little giveaway from a few weeks back. It’s a blog full of beautiful photography from her escapes in and out of Ireland – perfect if you want to wander from the comfort of your own home.

Have a lovely Sunday 🙂
