DAY 67:
I was incredibly lucky to be given the chance to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour near London. It was a fascinating and really exciting trip, of which one of the highlights was Diagon Alley, pictured here. The colours were so vivid and the atmosphere was so amazing and realistic, that it is actually hard to recreate it in photographs.

DAY 66:
In this photograph, you can see the flock of parakeets returning home to roost silhouetted against the sunset, probably on their way to Esher Rugby Club or a similar location.

DAY 66:I finally had my first driving lesson today, which went surprisingly well, except from having a few issues with steering, which meant that I slow-motion-crashed my instructor’s car into the side of a hedge. However, despite this, I felt like I made good progress.

DAY 66:
I was drawn outside by the loud squawks of green parakeets (which have surprisingly become native to areas local to me) which were gathering before returning home to their roosts this evening. They were incredibly boisterous.

'Sleep Alone' by Two Door Cinema Club

'He sleeps alone
He needs no army where he’s headed
'Cause he knows
That they’re just ghosts
And they can’t hurt him if he can’t see them, oh
And I may go
To places I have never been to
Just to find
The deepest desires in my mind’

I am so excited about the new Two Door Cinema Club album! It is just days away from being released (I pre-ordered it and hopefully it will be delivered soon!) and I have been listening to the tracks that they have streamed from it before it is made available properly. The sound is definitely different from the first album, but I think in a good way.

DAY 66:
So, here I am in our living room, which is pretty standard, but just a nice place to congregate and chat. As you can see, today I was going for a collar-and-jumper look.

DAY 65:
These flowers that my dad bought my mum for their wedding anniversary are now on their last legs, but I think that they still maintain a certain level of beauty even as they fade and decay.

DAY 65:
I introduced my brother to ‘21 Jump Street’ this evening, and we both found it absolutely hilarious. I love that this is a film that is funny over and over again.

DAY 65:
My parents have been working hard to clear our garden by trimming back the large hedges we have surrounding it on several sides. They are dedicated: the last time that my mum tried to cut our hedge, she fell off a ladder and sprained her ankle, which swelled to the size of a small football.

'History Book' by Dry The River

'As heavy as a history book can be,
I will carry it with me, oh Lord.
And maybe when the bitterness has gone,
There’ll be sweetness on our tongues once more.’

I really like this song, which I think has to be one of the best free songs I’ve ever got from iTunes due its relaxing and dreamlike qualities alone.

From the end of my School exams until the first day of uni, I have one hundred days of summer. Each day I plan to post three photos I have taken on that day, one song lyric and to reblog my favourite post of the day. Let's see how this goes...
