The birthday balloons lasted ages and ages .... one still alive in April!

I enjoy putting a few photos together…

…to remind me later of the last few months, the season past and all that.

Spring is coming fast as we experience one of the hottest Easter months on record in the UK. This week has been amazing too and I’m hoping this promises to be a hot hot summer for the pasty-skinned Brits who yearn to sport their Oakley’s and Ray-Ban’s 😉

In February, my birthday was a wonderful week of fine meals with friends and family, cocktails at Hilton’s Tower Hill sky lounge with colleagues, and the general self-indulgence one can enjoy at such times.

I even had time to get the torch burning in the glass studio as I start to plan some ideas for bikini bead-wear 🙂

Bought Schmoo a beach house of his own!

Other happy moments included seeing Muse at the O2 last week, and dancing my life away for 3 days at the last Resistanz Festival in Sheffield in March.

I really enjoyed listening to Gaia Vince at the Imperial College London in January as she shared her travel experiences to discover where we’re heading as a species. Her book “Adventures in the Anthropocene: A Journey to the Heart of the Planet we Made” should be on everyone’s Christmas list this year. Looks like the decisions we make as a planet in the next 30 years are critical… but read the book!

Also enjoyed an informative visit to the Royal Institute of British Architects to hear the latest innovations from Casewise; their last event took place the Royal Institution of Great Britain and aside from being very inspiring for business events these are all very beautiful buildings worth a tourist visit!

So a busy pre-Springtime and so looking forward to much more fun in 2016 🙂
