morning!




hope you all had a fabulous, relaxing weekend. i did. lots of lazy hanging around on the sofa, planting flowers on my 'terrace', having coffee with friends and browsing through travel guide books on venice and provence. and it was my first work-free weekend in four weeks. i really needed a break.

as you see, i've also been fiddling with the layout of this page. i like the cleaner look and the bigger pictures. would have liked to have a slightly smaller version of the photos so you don't have to scroll up and down the images when using a laptop, but so far there's only the option to use 400 pixels (the size you can still see down there for the last corner view) or next up 800 pixels, which is the new bigger size. hoping there will be a way to go for 600 pixels at some point, which i think would be ideal. meanwhile, this is it.

before i forget: thanks a lot to fine little day for posting a link on how to get bigger pictures on one's blog! go and take a look.

(these pictures were taken in may, visiting a fabulous friend in london, having breakfast on the terrace. shot with my praktica on 400 asa film.)

sorry, sorry, sorry for being so terribly late in getting back to you!! i've been delighted hearing from you - just being a bit frantic what with the holiday coming closer (yay!) and so much work to be done before (urgh).

fine little day: thank you and thanks again for posting that link! :)

trinsch: dankeschön, merci, thank you!

kay: bedankt - i love still lives too... can't get enough of them, to be honest!

isabelle & jane & lisa: yes, check out the link, i got a bit scared when i realised i had to copy & past html codes, but it's actually quite easy!

mary-laure & kristina: you are too kind... glad you like the photos!

anna: quite! :)

natsumi: thank you!

april: danke dir! und es wirklich sehr schön, mehr platz für den text zu haben - war allerdings ein bisschen hin und her, bis es schließlich alles an ort und stelle war...
