Devil's Punchbowl

I went to see Caroline today... had a great time sitting outside in her garden and playing with Joseph - he's the cutest little boy EVER (see pictures below)!

I then stopped at the Devil's Punchbowl on my way home - it's a gorgeous route to drive only most of it is very serpentine-y so you can't look out the window AND drive without causing an accident!
So this time around, I actually pulled over at their cafe, paid the 2 pounds to park there and took off with my camera for a brief half hour. The below pictures are the result - not the greatest but still, shows well enough how gorgeous it's out there!

Haircut!!! (and a day out in London)

I am currently on a well deserved, two week holiday! YEY, me! So I'm turning days into nights and vice versa, sleeping in late and generally doing whatever I happen to please all the time. A life of leisure...

Yesterday I decided to get my hair cut (it's been overdue for 4 months now) and since my absolutely fabulous hairdresser/stylist Michael is in London (Unruly Studio in Notting Hill, check it out!!!!), I thought I'd combine it with a day trip into London and dinner with a friend.

So here are the pictures, first of my AWESOME new haircut (sorry, trying to take pictures of yourself with a very heavy camera in your hand isn't as easy as you'd think so the pics aren't the greatest but you'll get the idea), then some pics of my lovely, perfect, fabulous Houses of Parliament with Big Ben and the London Eye and then, kind of like an afterthought, I realized I had taken these pics of myself two weekends ago when I decided to have a 'pamper weekend' and smeared some pore shrinking mask on my face (nothing has shrunk, of course) - be warned, it's SCARY! :P

Oh yeah, and this weird installation of Channel 4's trademark - a four made of umbrellas!
