December 31 - the final photograph of Project 365. Here's the faithful companion checking on the outside world; come the warm weather, I reckon we'll be fighting over which of us gets to sit in the sunniest spot on the balcony... Happy New Year from the seaside!
December 29 - that looks like a nice box - just my size. If I sit still for long enough, she'll get bored, stop watching and I'll be able to sneak my bum in there...
December 24 - went into Brighton today looking for something Christmassy to photograph - decorations, crowds of shoppers, maybe even a tree or two - and didn't find anything seasonally inspiring. So it was off to the pier to take photos, followed by a bracing walk along the seafront back to Hove
December 23 - a beautiful sunny morning. Christmas food and presents are bought, cards are posted and there's still a day to spare. I have some of the presents to wrap, then I can settle down for a nice quiet knit this afternoon
December 22 - St Aubyns Mansions, Kings Esplanade, Hove. There's usually a seagull perched on top of the turret when I walk past
December 20 - seriously good bread! It's an organic pumpkin seed loaf from the deli across the road and it tastes great plain (or toasted) with butter and Marmite (or butter and honey, for that matter)
December 19 - bookcases for the bedroom were delivered today. Flossie's not sure....maybe all the dust on the shelves is putting her off
December 17 - George Street, Hove
December 15 - on the opposite side of Hove Street, I have the best of both worlds. A posh organic deli and restaurant rub shoulders with a great open-all-hours shop
December 14 - please bear with me while I have a terror-of-pattern episode. In an imaginary world, I sleep between plain cream sheets; in real life, I know that colourful bedlinen hides a multitude of cat hairs. I think I may have gone too far this time - pass me some dark glasses and an aspirin...
December 12 - Centurion Road, Brighton. It's a beautiful day and I'm sitting on the pavement in a Lloyd Loom chair waiting for a taxi
