snapshots of my week – 27th february

wait, what? february, where did you go? i don’t know if this month went faster because it’s the shortest month, because it’s getting lighter or just because it wasn’t as rubbish as january, but ..yeah, that went quickly.

i’m so glad spring is almost here. besides autumn, it’s my favourite season. flowers are blooming and trees are getting green. the days are getting lighter and longer and it’s getting a little warmer whilst still having a little chill in the air.

i went to penarth last tuesday to take some photos. it was such a lovely day! since moving to cardiff i really miss the sea. where i lived before i was literally a couple minutes walk away and i loved going down there late at night and sitting in the darkness listening to the sea. i know i’m not that far now, but’s not the same, you know? anyway, i’m semi close to the sea and that’s what’s important.

whilst i was there i visited (most of) the charity shops too. i kept finding things i wanted but didn’t want to lug loads of things around when i got to the penarth seafront. i did buy a little brass dog/wolf, a top and a navy shift dress though. definitely going back.

    Hurry up Spring! I only visited Penarth a few time when I lived in Cardiff, mainly to go the photography gallery there, but I do remember the awesome charity shops! Definitely something to go back for!
