Footnotes: September

This post comes to you from the past. I am currently living my dream: I'm on an uninhabited island with no electricity or WiFi. Literally only sheep. It's pretty much my favourite place in the world.


No but seriously, remember that lighthouse thing I shared in my most recent post? (If you don't, a) how dare you not internalise every pixel of my blog, I'm offended, and b) scroll down.) It was about wanting to live in a lighthouse. But where I really want to live is a reservoir tower.

There's a train I often get that goes up from the countryside through the south side of Glasgow, and going through the green country the line passes a couple of beautiful reservoirs. I love that railway -- the trains are old and creaky, bodies painted dull red and yellow, cheerful somehow -- and I love those lakes. And I always look at the reservoir towers as I pass and have a surge of longing.

Anyway, I'm getting away from the point.

It's the first of September, which means it's time for Footnotes!


Ashley and I began this link-up last month. It's quotation based -- each month we post a prompt asking you to choose a quotation on a particular theme, and you respond pretty much however you like! Thanks to those who got involved in August! This month's prompt:

A quotation that makes you laugh.

  1. It's sad that being a cave hermit is too expensive today.

    Can't wait to do the link-up

  2. Wait hold up, since when were you disappearing to an uninhabited island??? How??? Why??? Can I come????

    I like the prompt but I'm starting uni in two weeks (sadly), so I don't think I'll get any time to post stuff before I go. Honestly I'd rather go to Iceland for three years and learn how to do something cool, like make vintage watches in the mountainside, butttt, alas, I need an "education". It's v sad, but eh. (I'm not quite sure where I went with this comment, but it's chill).

    1. IT WAS SO GOOD, AMY, I CAN'T TELL YOU. SO. GOOD.

      Whooaaaa you're going to uni! Look atcha go! What are you doing and where?!!! But also vintage watches. I would literally adore that. (For my Higher Art Design a couple of years ago I made steampunk clock brooches. Unfortunately not ft. working clockwork. I wish ...)

  4. You'd better go on an expedition on that uninhabited island! (If you're still there, that is; which, seeing as you've been out and about on the internet lately, I suspect you are not.) But I hope you DID have adventures there. It sounds so fun.

    And methinks I will be linking up today! It's Saturday, it's late, and I have yet to post anything, so this will be my rescue. :)
