A short clip of Paul McCartney playing 'Blackbird, which 'fyi' (I only just learnt this) is about the struggles of African Americans in the 1960s rather than an actual bird. Flying into the light. Of a dark black night..

I love everything that comes with Wimbledon. The preppy traditions; plump strawberries, little tennis skirts, perfect lawns and imagining that Paul 'Tennis Champion' Bettany really exists. But most of all I love that Wimbledon is the true firing shot for the start of British summertime and the inevitable yo yo-ing opening and closing of umbrellas as the British population holds out in the hope of scorching sunshine. Beyond this I don't usually follow the tennis itself, I'll get emotionally involved with an important match mostly out of the fondness towards Wimbledon institutions but then likely get preoccupied half way through. Every year I tell myself I'll learn the rules 'for real' rather than being a spectator when it suits me or being seduced by the little skirts and a fleeting patriotism. I wonder if this year will be any different..

1. Second hand Hawaiian shirt, suede skirt and new straw market bag I finally found this week after a year of looking, all worn for tonight's 'farewell curry' with friends at Islamabad Grill before we all return home for the summer.
2. 'Window Shopping' at American Apparel. Peach striped top and cord shorts.
3. The most deliciously succulent Mango, enthusiastically demolished in a couple of minutes.
4. Pineapple sunglasses, gold rollneck top (which impressively and deceptively adds 2 stone extra when worn) which I wore to Parklife Festival.
6. ..And unwrapped and on the desk.
7+8. Topshop sunglasses, second hand button down skirt and backpack and old shirt from All Saints.

A couple of images to represent the mellow and slightly dazed 'what now?' feeling that is hanging in the air now that exams have finished. Cars are pulling up outside, cardboard boxes are being loaded in and the summer holidays are officially starting for those leaving now. I've been wandering around the flat in leggings and sandals, doing the laundry, buying peonies and sitting outside on the grass (rather than an old car seat) but with an equally vacant expression.
