Good things about today: White Horse Hill, apple crumble, my mushroom risotto in the pub arriving with unexpected extra halloumi, thus meaning I won lunch.

Bad things about today: [profile] lanfykins introducing me to pocket frogs for the iPad, thus meaning that any hope I ever had of living a normal, functional and productive life vanished, in an instant. If anyone else is playing, I'm down as Annwfyn, as per usual.

Thank you, [profile] ksirafai & [profile] lanfykins for visiting.

I also note, it was awesome to see [profile] kathminchin, [profile] becky_spence & [profile] windzswept yesterday as well. Lounge picnic was definitely For The Win.

And finally, have some pics of White Horse Hill today.

Pics and some rambling )

If anyone wanted to see the house I was brought up in, it is on display here.

Pics lie beneath... )



You can see the front of the house, the orchard wall to one side and the coach house (now garage and loft) to the other side. Opposite is the injured jockeys home which used to be a racing stable, from which horses used to ride out each morning at 6am. My bedroom window is on the far right of the house. This is my home and it feels good to be here.

annwfyn: (mood - emo ugly duckling)
A while ago I was trying to explain the concept of 'happy places' to someone. Basically, there are, in the world, a variety of places which I associate very strongly with being happy, with good things happening, with me liking the world I live in. And just being able to think about those places, to remember them, to get a mental image in my mind always makes me feel better.

And so tonight, when the world is being a weird place, and I am in a lot of pain and really am not content with the world, I have decided that I want to find some of those places and spend a bit of time inside those memories. It'll make me feel better, and it'll turn into something that no one can take away from me.

The carousel on Brighton Pier, nearby where my grandmother lived )

Horcon, in Chile, where Krys and I stayed in a cabana and lived on goat's cheese, french bread and red wine )

Pike's Place Market in Seattle. I think Melsner took me here first on one of our Grim Raven Death Marches of Fun )

The Monkey Temple in Kathmandu. I remember coming here on a lovely sunny day when I was about 18 and sort of wallowing in the fact that this was me! I was here! )

White Horse Hill, near my dad's house. I love this place absolutely and keep thinking about getting it as a tattoo of some kind )

So those are five random places that make me happy. It isn't an exhaustive list - I haven't got pictures of the convent in Bolivia I fell in love with, or Streatham Ice Rink where I am almost always happy - and there are a load of other places too. But those are five places I adore and feel like sharing with the world tonight.

How about you?

Can anyone name me the picture on the wall in this photo? It's been driving me insane as I know I should know it. I know I had that picture on my wall when I was about 14 (and really liked fairies). I know I had it on birthday cards as well.

But I can't remember it or find it via google image search.

Can anyone save my sanity?

Oooh...a pic of me I quite like. Even if I do look demented, and about 12.



In other news, tidying one's bedroom turns up all kinds of exciting things. I have way more clothes than I realized, and a lot of character sheets.

Some pics that [profile] andyrebranded took on our Day of Photography.



My cat Madoc looking remarkably regal.



Me hugging a tree. The point of this, originally, was to add a sense of scale. Instead I think I just look like I'm undergoing an alarming kind of transformation into a hippy.



A squirrel that I was trying to lure towards me.

They all make me smile.

I saw these today as I was heading into work. I was stressed, panicked, had just found out that I need to produce a school next week for some kind of film on the House, and generally in a less than happy mood. Then I saw these and everything sort of got a little bit better.

I'm not sure where the story of the ugly duckling came from. I've always found cygnets to be ridiculously cute.

So, I dressed up like a wench on Friday night, and both [personal profile] adze and [profile] badgersandjam took pictures of me.

And because I'm vain, I share my favourite one with you.
