Just in case y’all actually like this mess I call Me, I’ve started a new Tumblr for 2014 and beyond called Navy Folk. I felt that Foxes & Harts was a little too narrow to encompass everything I wanted to talk about.
Navy Folk will be more personal, about finishing uni, moving to Scotland, knitting, folk, writing, getting jobs and keeping on top of life. It’ll be like one of those family blogs - a bit of everything. Except I won’t post anything about how adorable my toddler was with my Labrador or how Jesus is awesome. I’ll talk about nuclear weapons and mountains and the logistics of finding a piano for cheap while pursuing a career in earth sciences.
(If this sounds like anything someone you know would be interested in, reblogging this post will be greeted with hugs and love!)
I made a totally new account so I could like things and talk as navyfolk, and also clean breaks are like a breath mint for the mind. Foxes & Harts won’t be deleted and I may resurrect it sometime. Images of English gents and country culture will forever stay close to my heart.
P.S. You’re all gorgeous.

P.P.S. I just realised I was willy nilly randomly following people as Navy Folk before I had any posts up. Don’t worry, it is me. I’m not some foreign country bot trying to sell you things through hilariously misinformed algorithms. If I ever spam you, it’ll be through Snapchat.

The Most Important Thing.

I completely forgot I’d queued that London Fog thing.

I’ve been sititng here chewing my lip, wondering whether to log onto this dashboard and finally post, or whether I should change the image, or post something else. Turns out I’d queued the thing and it had fluttered on out there without me. It has forty-two notes.

I don’t have a voice, I barely can call this a niche, this is my 5th year and its 8,358,120,021th incarnation, but this is why I keep coming back to blogging. Because perhaps, out there, someone else wants to read about drinks that taste like autumn bonfires, novel writing attempts, the myriad subtle ways Dorset is totally different to Hampshire, Somerset and Devon, and knitting.

I like you guys. *sips frothy caramel Earl Grey*

London Fogs taste like bonfires, dead leaves, the underside of Mary Poppins’ umbrella and the oldest books in the dustiest corner of the British Library - but they taste good.
I first experienced a London Fog in Winchester, at Cafe Monde, a beautiful little place with outdoor seats in the Square. They also do fabulous Steamers - cheap but beautifully cheerful cups of flavoured froth. Since the university catering outlets succeeded in recreating them (they looked a bit funny at me when I mentioned putting caramel in my tea) these must be just as easy to make at home, and when I get my hands on some caramel I plan to do so. Simply brew some strong Earl Grey, mix in a dollop of caramel syrup to taste, and top off with steamed or frothed milk. Wind a wool scarf around your neck, look out of a rainy window, hold cup with both hands, think of dreary poetry and enjoy.
