  • Isn't this just lush? Wishing that this was my library πŸ“šπŸ˜
.
James Gibbs designed this library for Edward Harley, Earl of Oxford. The library contains the largest private collection of books and manuscript by a private individual in England. There are suppose to be about 10,000 titles here.
.
I wonder if one of the books here is a first edition of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. Elsie Bambridge, was the last owner of Wimpole Hall before it was given to the National Trust.

Happy Sunday πŸ’•
  • Happy Saturday! A bit cold for me but a beautiful day nonetheless.

Had an honest heartfelt chit-chat with my mom about our childhoods. She had an emotionally negligent relationship with her mom and mine was with my dad. Brene Brown's right. Most of us do the best we could with the tools that we have. The tools can be anything from mental state, experience, knowledge, gut feelings to a physical item.
.
It's not the end but the journey that matters. Be proud of who you have become, folks and talking does help 😘

Our brunch Instameet yesterday @novicambridge. I Amy have to go again soon. The porridge was so good!! Love all the nuts in there. Thanks @sam_flanagan for the hand and @dy_ellie for organising πŸ€—πŸ˜˜
  • Legend has it that Bath was found in 800-something BC by Prince Bladud. Nothing was actually found to confirm this legend. What could be confirmed was the Roman's existence around the middle of the first century.
.
Aquae Sulis it was named then, after the goddess Sulis, the one who healed and also punished.
.
Just a bit of Bath history to pique your interest ☺ Don't you love that violinist?

Have a fab weekend!!
  • A throwback to two weeks ago in CΓ³rdoba.
.
During Roman times, CΓ³rdoba was the largest city in the Iberian Peninsula. From 756 to 1031 it was the capital of al-Andalus, Muslim Spain. About 300 mosques and many other public buildings were built, all sorts of trades were happening, and Algebra replaced the Roman system. In 1236, CΓ³rdoba was taken over by the Christian forces. An economic decline happened after the Middle Ages. Buildings were decaying and there were a lot of poverty. Sometimes in the 19th century, CΓ³rdoba came back to life and now, the city centre is a UNESCO heritage site.

A beautiful city and I really miss the warm weather!

Hope your Thursday is beautiful πŸ’•
  • The blooms everywhere!
.
Wanted to snap the blossoms in front of my favourite local pink house but oh, I missed it by at least a week! 😞 It's a bummer but blessed nonetheless since many of you may be facing bigger disappointments and issues than missing photographing pink 🌸🌸 on this very day.

Have you heard of "childhood emotional neglect"? Google it. It's not usually intentional, it can be subtle, but it will last until adulthood. Actually, some may not ever know. High expectations, lack of emotional validation, busy parents or even the nowadays parents who are too busy online to be fully present for their kids can cause childhood emotional neglect.
.
I am a survivor of this. It's what got me into depression. I had a narcissistic, authoritarian, perfectionist and possibly depressed parent.
.
I am mentally healthier now but if you often feel empty, trapped, sensitive to rejection, don't belong, a perfectionist, pushes feelings away, lots of negative self talk, low self-esteem, or addicted to buying πŸ‘ , look up CEN. A better way of life may be just around the corner for you too πŸ’ž

Have a great day!
  • This time, Briar Rose and the three silly guardian fairies live here and me, the evil fairy, stalking them πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
.
I thought I'd be kid free today but nope. Emma went to school but Jovie still has a day off. Journaling with her whilst watching a Netflix show and now, stealing a bit of time to Instagram ☺
.
Feeling so fortunate to be able to stay home with the girlies. Thankful to hubby for this!
.
Have a great day!
