Looking for Wonderland.
.
We almost called this curious one Alice. I think it would have suited her.
.
P.S. This isn't photoshopped. We took our kitchen clock to the woods 🕰️✨

It's taken me years to realise that I'm more introvert than extrovert. I love meeting friends but also enjoy being on my own. Do you think anyone would recognise me if I donned my Cousin Itt disguise? 😎 #whpinspiredby

My final shot from our Jane Eyre Trail walk (yes I had to have my windswept moment too!). In an ideal Instagram setup I would've worn a floaty dress but when you grow up in the Peak District, you know that practicality has to come first. I am holding a copy of the book in this photo though 🤩
.
To be honest this shot sums up my life at the moment. I'm between jobs and unsure of which step to take next. Do I try something super-ambitious or play safe? This general indecision is also reflected in my IG feed as I fluctuate between ideas. Hopefully I'll have more direction by the end of this week.
.
On a more solid note, if you're interested in our Jane Eyre ramble then the link to the blog post is in our profile. It's a great walk & not too challenging - definitely recommended if you're in the area 👍

We inherited this eclectic colour scheme in the library room but I kind of like it. Saying that we are looking to make a few changes this year - mainly on the side wall. What do you think - white or dark?
📚
In this photo we're still deciding on our next reads but we've finally chosen. Here's the line-up:
.
Mel - Melmoth by Sarah Perry
Little M - The Enchanted Castle by E.Nesbit
Al - A Maigret Christmas and Other Stories by Georges Simenon (better late than never!)
.
What are you reading next?

A moment of illumination in Jane Eyre country.
✨
Today we went on a 5.5 mile walk to see the locations that inspired the book and just as we sat down to eat our picnic on Stanage Edge,  the sun broke through the clouds. I can't wait to share the other pictures from this walk with you on the blog later this week. It's a must for Charlotte Bronte fans.
✨

We have a major declutter taking place in our house this week. One of our first goals was to organise our #tbrpile by setting up a book trolley (inspired by @theguywiththebook).
.
Each of us now has a shelf (not sure what's on that middle one though? 😶) Do you have any handy tips for book storage? #whpunexpected

Happy 127th Birthday to J.R.R. Tolkien! To celebrate one of our favourite authors we created a book picture of Little M stealing the Arkenstone from Smaug. The dragon wouldn't stop flapping his wings though - I hope he didn't notice our little thief! 🔥

A double post tonight - purely for the aesthetic! This first is from a series of photos that we took last year when Little M was in full poser mode. It was hard to pick one but I'm loving the rock star vibes here. 😎
The second photo tonight is a tribute to one of my favourite authors on his birthday. Hope you like it!

Welcome to 2019! The future is an open book 🤩
.
My life is so much easier now I've found two little page holders. I took this ages ago on a rainy day in June but The Summer Book seems so apt today while we dream of our 2019 trips. The @hayfestival is number one on our bookish list & we hope we'll see some of you there. Do you have anything planned for this year?
