A fairly new shop that has opened in Buckingham selling plants and home & garden inspired gifts. I adore the vintage bike strewn with bunting!

swan at the river

a closer look at the swan from yesterday... right before he turned, hissed, and snapped at me :)

Along the river sits this statue/sculpture which depicts a swan with its head under the water searching through the grasses, etc. I love that it's not your typical swan... what I don't love is that it's usually covered in grafitti and riddled with litter. Note the real swan in the background :)

Dear Employer,

Today you received my formal written notification of my intent to resign my position as Store Manager. Since I have worked for you specifically, I have no time to blog anymore. If I don't blog my readers forget about me. If my readers forget about me, they stop leaving me lovely comments. When I don't get that lovely "full inbox" I get unhappy. When I'm unhappy I eat a lot. When I eat a lot I get fat. When I'm fat it affects your company image. When your company's image is affected, trade is also affected. When business is down, you become unhappy. When you're unhappy I assume you will eat a lot, like me. When you eat a lot, I'm afraid you will become fat, like me.

So you see, it's a vicious cycle. I have done this for your own good, because I care for you and the company.

Happy trails,
