Going Viral x




Here in London, the sky is a birds egg blue, there are buds on the trees and the supermarket toilet roll aisles are empty. If it was a stomach bug, I’d have more understanding, but…toilet roll?? It means they’ll have to close the schools soon for fear of pupils stealing from cubicles and selling it on the streets..All jokes aside, this is the one time we need humour: Enjoy the following… I have.


Laters, not in lock down yet, Kate x



Blossom on a tree on our walk to school, the autumn leaves still hanging on…


Our mad weather is even confusing nature.


Also spotted, the van for a company replacing windows..


Maybe it’s the time of year and lack of sleep due to children coughing and spluttering through the night…but surely I’m not the only person who read their dodgy advertising slogan and thought..croup??

Mr and Mrs!

A cloudless sky..a balmy day..a beautiful bride..a beaming groom..there’s not much that beats the pure thrilling tide of love a wedding inspires. It’s that pure moment of magic when you get to celebrate a fork in the path of people you love, because they’ve chosen to walk that way together, forever.  (Or in this case, dancing, singing…..laughing..)

(Great pic by Kayte Cable!)

The gorgeous bride (naturally) (as your do) MADE HER OWN DRESS. Respect….(I think we can all be proud of the way we have brought her up..she’s a credit to us!)

The service was delivered with suitable grandee gravitas, impeccable diction and great teeth.

Full of the potent force of shared years/drunken forays that make 20 years disappear to re-awaken the past in bright, nostalgic technicolor. Flamboyant, slapstick and joyful with a pearly heat haze of pure charm and happiness.

And then the dancing began!

Spinning, twisting, whirling into the night…


Congratulations you lovely, lovely pair!!!!!!

Tall Tale x



I had a funny with Charlie last week. Nothing to do with wearing my glasses..or having a chocolate face..It was actually at his school..they were having an indepth class discussion about World War 1 and Charlie proudly announced that we have two of the ceramic poppies from the Tower of London, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red exhibition at home.  His teacher wanted to know if he could bring them in to show the class so the very next day, he eagerly went in with them for his very own, personal show-and-tell.  He stood up in front of the class and spoke eloquently about the poppies being the first flower to grow on the battle fields of Flanders, he explained how each poppy represented the death of a soldier..then he was asked ‘And where do these poppies come from Charlie?’ He thoughtfully considered the question..and replied: ‘Tesco’s!’

…Naturally I’m gutted he didn’t say Waitrose..

There’s a serendipity when things that aren’t perfect just are.

Like an unexpected marriage of colour, nostalgia and manipulation.

But then would you expect any more from Karen Walker?

The Queen of witchy powers, always willing to throw magic into the mix.  And cackle with glee at the results..
