50 til 50

In fifty days, I will turn 50.

Did you know that sometimes trees are shy?

Today's non-Instagram-fabulous snapshot: Gus lying in the fireplace. I need to repaint that brick, it's so impossibly grubby. You can also see the scratching post at the right, which Theo will actually scratch with as much enthusiasm as he does the couch also pictured here. That couch was new and perfect when we got Theo, and he has in the ensuing five years scratched the hell out of it and ripped the fabric underneath so it dangles down unattractively. Plus, this couch is usually covered in dog hair.

I took a photograph of some shy trees earlier in the year but didn't know there was a name for it until I read a tweet from Robert Macfarlane about the very same thing. If you don't follow him already do because his account is very interesting.

Thank you, I just followed him on Twitter!
