State of play.

As per usual, a selection of photos I've snapped on my phone over the last few days. Most of them are of our time in Sandwich but there are a few from here and there such as the new ukulele in my life.
My blog isn't the only place I have been ranting about learning to play one, my boyfriends grandparents have let me borrow one they had stored away in their cupboard, to learn and practice on. It needs a good tuning but I am that little bit closer to being able to play some songs. 
 I went with my boyfriend and his nan to see State of Play, my boyfriend's grandad's band, play last night. We travelled to Chessington and by the end of the night we were both quite tipsy. I hardly drink much so I'm always quick to get giggly. 
I channelled a nineties Liv Tyler yesterday, when she is Empire Records. Wearing my small grey crop jumper and a little camel A-line skirt, I dug out and dusted off my DM's to wear with it and immediately felt like I had time travelled back by 15 years.  
I hope everybody else had an enjoyable weekend and have an exciting week ahead of them. What did everybody get up to? 

My instagram username is pickletreat, if anybody is interested in following me.

  1. I'm pretty sure that the only reason I would like an iPhone is to use the instagram app, these photos are lovely. I've always wanted to play the ukelele too, preferably sat in a field wearing 70s woodstock-esque clothing ahaha :)
