[a little bit] about me





I'm Polly. I live in the UK, about 50 miles north of London, in a small village with D my boyfriend, Mouser our cat, Tit and Pie our ducks and Chicken and Pingu our chickens. I work as a children's book designer. I love days out: exhibitions, gardens, shops, car boot sales, cafes, riding my bicycle, and visiting new places. As well as days at home: gardening, pottering, tidying, making, baking, laughing, listening to music, and snuggling with D, Mouser, Tit, Pie, Pingu and Chicken.
I started this blog back in 2011, we'd recently moved from a tiny studio flat over looking a busy road in Spitalfields, London to a mid-century house with a fair sized garden in a quiet country village. Having left the bustle of city life behind and the ever changing scenes on the street, life seemed to be lacking culture. But as the autumn nights drew in I found myself immersed in the internet and blogs; a whole new world [to me at the time], a place bursting with creativity and like-minded people. Before long nice kind of blue was born
