it was also the start of our holiday as we are off to berlin today! YAY! i am so excited and cannot wait to explore a new city.
the photos are of flowers that our lovely friends jenny and thomas bought for us and some books that i bought way back with some birthday vouchers. they are from the virago modern classics series. i love the design of the covers (i already own excellent women by barbara pym which i LOVED). i need a new book to take to berlin with me (as i finished on the road by jack kerouac yesterday). i think i'll start with my cousin rachel! (rebecca by daphne du maurier is one of my favourite ever books).

highlights from the weekend: cooking a three course meal, enjoying eating the three course meal with friends, trying lots of great beers and scoring them for smell and taste, getting 7 strikes in a row on wii bowling! (beer obviously helps), watching new zealand win the rugby world cup.

things have certainly got a lot cooler around here.... but i love autumn and the changing seasons. especially when the sun still shines and the air is crisp and fresh.
the derelict building is the remains of the sofiensaal in the third district of vienna. it was destroyed by fire in 2001. such a shame. i bet the old ballroom/concert hall was wonderful.

i really hope to make it back to paris someday soon so i can properly explore the city.
but on the plus side i did try snails for the first time! (which were great).
here are a few random snaps from the weekend before last. the last photo is of a band called kitty daisy and lewis who i saw at the arena. they are siblings and play rockabilly style music i would say with a bit of a twist. they all play multiple instruments and swap around during the set (their parents were also on stage playing guitar and double bass!). i really loved it and couldn't keep still. it is music that just makes me want to dance.
