teatime improved

Finished a boat load of work yesterday and rewarded myself with a new teacup! I have really been missing my teacups that I kept at school. Not to mention teatime with Morris babies!

Picked it up from this adorable little gift and stationary shop/bookstore down the street from me. First green set and it holds the perfect amount of tea! I'm a bit annoyed with how excited I get about this stuff.

I’ve been doing work in the Radcliffe Camera all day. Needless to say, breathtaking, but it is just so toasty and the smell of mothballs permeates ever corner and archway-crevice that I find myself getting even more dizzy than sleepy. And that is saying something!

Also, the coffee here is seriously strong. Feel like a total weakling

Morris housemate Rosie came to visit yesterday for a bit while on a day trip. It made me so happy to see her and a bit of Smith that I spent a slightly pathetic hour browsing the Spring Course Catalog. Hey Rosie, we have some major Easter Break planning to do!! :)

Just before Winter Break (read: during Finals), I made something that looks a bit like this loopy trivet by TOMA:

Cork Trivet (also in wood), $20, TOMA Objects

Quite happy with how it turned out, especially considering I was using a pretty low quality piece of plywood. Have got to make some more when I'm back at Smith for a proper set of trivets for our new house!

I'm all settled in. I think I may have severely strained/fractured my ankles because I wasn't wearing socks and it was too cold and I slipped a bit. Hurts to walk and feel genuinely idiotic. Pictures of adorable Oxford soon.
