hiatus

I haven't been taking many photos this week – something about getting out with everyone and their shoes on/hats on/bags packed etc, the camera just doesn't make the list. (Hence another iPhone shot above, thanks Ad.) Just dropping in to say I'm having a blog break and will be back […]

school holidays

Turns out I've carried my love of school holidays into adulthood, now that I have a school-aged person in the house. There's something about the rhythm of term-time receding into a break that is good for everyone. Gives us a sense of re-charging.  It has been totally wonderful having Adam […]
