Guess what I have just been doing?
YES. Archery lesson!
Of course, now I know that in this picture I was doing it all wrong. Haha. But I don’t mind! Learning supports and corrects the fruits of my PASSION, and passion is nothing to apologise for. Unless it is a passion for awful crimes maybe?
I shot three arrows, and next week I will shoot more. Birthdays are delicious! Just delicious.
Do you know where this picture, that one above, was taken? You most likely don’t, but I will tell you. So don’t worry! It was taken in Hathersage, not a half-mile away from..
Yeah! Bonus: Beloved does a Gilbert of the White Hand impression.
Timely reference, and also funny.
Yeah, we went to visit an old friend. Doesn’t it make your heart clasp?
And doesn’t it make you say “Woah, gee whiz, that guy was tall?”
It did me.
Hathersage is in the Peak District, just, which is where the gent and I spent the week before my birthday. We got a lot done, both proactively re: plans and stories and history, and.. uselessly.. re: terrible, terrible 90s B-movies. It was a good, good time. Having a place of our own for a little was a balm. This is evidenced in the schmoopiest couples-photo we are likely to take.
ANYWAY. The church in question – of course! – is beautiful, and covered in carvings you could puzzle over for hours.
We had a compass with us, so we could find “due east” of the graveyard. I know you will be interested too, reader! So I took pictures for you. Imagine a great, tall, long haired blond (he’s always blond) man striding away over those hills, staff in hand. That’s what we did. It was good.
Gorgeous. There was even a bunny.
That last one is just me, OK, but it’s dreamy. And that’s just the built-up areas! You wanna see the country? OF COURSE YOU DO.
You see that cloud? That rained on us. England, just as it should be.
Nature. Of course.
And what is a “fashion blogger” (hurrhurr well I try!) without detail shots? Nothing.
Told you I had a lot of show & tell.
