I’ve been a little naughty tonight. I’ve been tea-total for about 3 years, but tonight I made my classic hot toddy – 4 parts boiling water, 2 parts ginger wine, 1 part honey bourbon, a teaspoon of demerara sugar, a tablespoon of lemon, and a tablespoon of honey. Looovely! Feeling very cosy now 🙂

No. 3. Last one. Shame on me! My #YankeeCandle obsession is getting WAY out of hand. No, wait a minute… it IS out of hand already. I wish I could say this was the lot, but…… 😦 Like my homemade box? Specially made for the votives; covered with 2 layers of Orla Kiely retro wrapping paper 🙂 #candle #candles #Yankee #USA #America #deerfield #orlakiely #wrappingpaper #box #votives #votive #votivecandles #waxtarts #addict #gay #instagay #notafairy #samplers #popularpic #retro #vintage #70s #yankeecandleaddict (at River Cottage)

My good friend @davidjcarmichael wanted me to draw/paint him a picture of his pooch, Marty. I did, and he received it as his birthday card today. This was the process. Be kind, I’m new to this!

Just one of my bedside tables. I’m in a dark room, with curtains drawn and surrounded by glowing candles, watching The Exorcism of Emily Rose… alone (as usual). Not typical Sunday evening viewing, and not the best thing to watch considering my chronic insomnia. I sure know how to have a damn good time! I’m considering laying a protective circle of salt around my bed… but not on the good rug – I’ve only just hoovered. #polaroid #polaroid1000 #polaroids #bedroom #bed #instagay #gay #lgbt #movienight #movie #exorcism #emilyrose #sunday (at River Cottage)
