By The Sea

Maida Vale Studios
Tonight we went to see The Yeah You’s with Dermot O’Leary at the BBC Maida Vale studios.
Bank Holiday
It’s a bank holiday Monday but we’re working hard, as the rest of the week will be busy. I rewarded myself wish a sushi lunch on the doorstep – the neighbours looked jealous.
Goddamn Right, It’s A Beautiful Day
After waking up a little hazy this morning, we went food shopping for our dinner party. It had turned in to such a lovely day by the time we got home, so we sat outside and ate our lunch. Later on...

Tonight we were invited to see Nelson Ross's new band, THE MARS PATROL play at the Camden Barfly. Gail Porter is their biggest fan and was there jumping around and getting on stage.

My Manic Street Preachers, Journal For Plagued Lovers album arrived today. It comes in a little book and it's the last album of songs written by Richey Edwards.
Thrash Hits Birthday Party
We received a press release about our next-door-neighbour, King Charles, so we quizzed him for the Cut Out + Keep blog.

Just A Penny On the Train Tracks
Today was the last day of The Great Escape and, after arriving at Brighton train station, we bumped in to Ben Kweller who'd been on the same train as us.
Drift In To A Deep Fog
Today was the second day of The Great Escape Festival in Brighton. We stash all of our loose change in a jar near the door, so we brought it along today to gamble in the penny falls. It got rathe...
The Great Escape
Today we were in Brighton for The Great Escape music festival. A lot of people have told me that I’d love Brighton and I do. It's a place to become a sailor girl and hang out with mermaids and onl...

The End Of Time Is The Start Of Eternity

Monday's Are Like The Wind To Sailing
Today we hit up Blue Monday at Yo Sushi! with Tony, where we had way too many plates. Afterwards we went for a few drinks, where we found out that Tony had been given a Blue Peter badge when he wa...
Dim Sum
This morning we went for Dim Sum in China Town. Dim Sum is a Chinese breakfast where they cart around plates of steamed food and you pick what you like. The idea is to try a bit of everything and ...

I woke up in craft heaven this morning when the postman brought two huge boxes of craft tools that Official Fiskars Page had sent to me to play with.
As Seen On TV

Mad Hatter
Today I went to the Anthology exhibition at the V&A with my Mum. Stephen Jones has made some gorgeous hats, I'd love to own one someday. Mum treated me to tea and cake in the cafe.
The Garden Trail
This morning we went to the Apple Store, which my Dad has started calling church. We stayed to watch a bit of a workshop which was really cool. We then went on the Garden Trail, where private gard...
