Welcome to the year of the horse... 春节


Welcome to the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, which begins on the second new moon after Winter Solstice, this is the year of the wooden horse.
Your sign is the horse, if you were born in or after Chinese New Year's Day in one of these years;

1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014.

So evidently that makes me the sign of the horse, being born in one of those years, (although I'm not saying which) in fact I must be a bit of a double horse as my star sign is Sagitarius, a centaur, half man half horse, strange, as I'm actually quite nervous around horses.

Any more of you horses out there? 

Suffering from Sherlock withdrawal...

Today...

Twenty one years ago today my father died suddenly, just a week before our son was born.
Today, our buyers from hell again failed to exchange and as a result our house sale is off!
After checking if assassins advertise in 'yellow pages' (they don't) I thought, let's have something nice.

The last days of December 2013... mood board

A strange month for us, a month of disorientation, not being able to settle, not knowing whether we're coming or going and all with a continuous background of rain...
