My Dad Can Do a Front Flip

My sister recently found this old picture of our dad. Best guy.

I remember one holiday turning around to see my dad hurtling across the garden of Beaumaris Castle and doing a front flip. It totally blew my mind. I think it totally blew his vertebrae too but It was probably the best gymnastics lessons I ever received, seeing that old codger* doing a front flip before I could.

I could front flip by the end of the week.

*sorry dad, you were actually only 43 but in a child's eye that's almost dead.

A Few Of My Favourite Things

School book print, postcard shop, Brighton

Bell Punch Calculator, carboot, London

Spice jars, second hand shop in Tilburg

Mr Squeezy, second hand shop, Tilburg

Creepy Happy Apple, flee market, Barcelona

Creepy stuffed doll, antique shop, Tilburg

Drawstring Jumping Jack, second hand shop, Tilburg

Bonkers cross-stitch, second hand shop, Tilburg

I realised recently that my collection of weird and wonderful shit has expanded pretty rapidly over the past year or so. I guess it's down to having a little more space these days / having realised that London will be my home for the unforeseeable future. Here's a few of my latest finds, my trip to Tilburg this weekend was pretty fruitful. My friend showed me some of the best thrift stores I have ever seen, I cried tacky tears of joy.

I am so in love with the jumping jack, his eyes are too cheeky.
