These bookstacks are a safe haven for morris while we settle our new canine friend milo (that's 4 m's now!). he came to stay with us for a trial last night and has made himself very comfortable! 🐶
.
this week i'm also sorting through titles while also thinking up ideas for book pictures. my visual creativity is on the slow side because of insomnia but strangely it's firing crazily when it comes to the blog. i have so many exciting things i'd like to post that i can't keep up (which is a good thing!). i hope i can share some of them with you soon 🤩

Looking for wonderland.

we almost called this curious one alice. i think it would have suited her.
.
p.s. this isn't photoshopped. we took our kitchen clock to the woods 🕰️✨

It's taken me years to realise that i'm more introvert than extrovert. i love meeting friends but also enjoy being on my own. do you think anyone would recognise me if i donned my cousin itt disguise? 😎 #whpinspiredby .

My final shot from our jane eyre trail walk (yes i had to have my windswept moment too!). in an ideal instagram setup i would've worn a floaty dress but when you grow up in the peak district, you know that practicality has to come first. i am holding a copy of the book in this photo though 🤩
.
to be honest this shot sums up my life at the moment. i'm between jobs and unsure of which step to take next. do i try something super-ambitious or play safe? this general indecision is also reflected in my ig feed as i fluctuate between ideas. hopefully i'll have more direction by the end of this week.
.
on a more solid note, if you're interested in our jane eyre ramble then the link to the blog post is in our profile. it's a great walk & not too challenging - definitely recommended if you're in the area 👍

We inherited this eclectic colour scheme in the library room but i kind of like it. saying that we are looking to make a few changes this year - mainly on the side wall. what do you think - white or dark?
📚
in this photo we're still deciding on our next reads but we've finally chosen. here's the line-up:
.
mel - melmoth by sarah perry
little m - the enchanted castle by e.nesbit
al - a maigret christmas and other stories by georges simenon (better late than never!)
.
what are you reading next?

A moment of illumination in jane eyre country.

today we went on a 5.5 mile walk to see the locations that inspired the book and just as we sat down to eat our picnic on stanage edge, the sun broke through the clouds. i can't wait to share the other pictures from this walk with you on the blog later this week. it's a must for charlotte bronte fans.

also thank you for all your messages in response to our offer of shout-outs. we're now going to post these in stories every sunday with the tag #sundayshare . if you need to hit a target, or want to let others know about a special project or giveaway then dm us & we'll try to spread the word 🤗

We have a major declutter taking place in our house this week. one of our first goals was to organise our #tbrpile by setting up a book trolley (inspired by @theguywiththebook ).
.
each of us now has a shelf (not sure what's on that middle one though? 😶) do you have any handy tips for book storage? #whpunexpected .

Happy 127th birthday to j.r.r. tolkien! to celebrate one of our favourite authors we created a book picture of little m stealing the arkenstone from smaug. the dragon wouldn't stop flapping his wings though - i hope he didn't notice our little thief! 🔥

A double post tonight - purely for the aesthetic! this first is from a series of photos that we took last year when little m was in full poser mode. it was hard to pick one but i'm loving the rock star vibes here. 😎
the second photo tonight is a tribute to one of my favourite authors on his birthday. hope you like it!

Welcome to 2019! the future is an open book 🤩
.
my life is so much easier now i've found two little page holders. i took this ages ago on a rainy day in june but the summer book seems so apt today while we dream of our 2019 trips. the @hayfestival is number one on our bookish list & we hope we'll see some of you there. do you have anything planned for this year?
