Stylish Blogger Award!

We can proudly say we have been awarded a Stylish Blogger award from Iz Bakinog Ormara, thank you! We are meant to say seven things about ourselves but since this is a shared blog I will do three and Tom will do three at some point and then one together. So here are my three:

My favourite place in the world is my bed:

There is nothing better on a sunny afternoon than lying on the soft patchwork quilt, bathed in sunlight, breeze wafting in through the window and watching the world go by unaware.

My favourite artist changes almost daily but at the moment I am obsessed with James Abbot McNeill Whistler:

I think that one of the worst inventions of the twentieth century is UPVC double glazing; many people think I am odd for this hatred in a country obsessed with this disgusting, plastic defacer of houses. On new houses fine but row upon row of pretty Victorian houses have been ruined forever by tasteless, white plastic rims and blankly staring sheets of wobbly looking glass, all supposedly in the name of economy and 'green' living. It saves on average £120 a year on bills, a decent amount, but think how long it takes to start earning back the cost of putting them in when they cost thousands and then you have to replace them every 20-30 years anyway! Why not put a lick of paint on your nice wooden frames once a year and buy a pair of nice thick curtains to keep the heat in? It is proven to be just as affective. For those still convinced, put this in your pipe and smoke it:

How long is that going to take to bio-degrade? I think people are only just starting to cotton on to recycling this stuff. I know what I'd rather.

More to come soon!
