Happy Easter

Hope you’re having a lovely long weekend, be it Easter-y or otherwise. I had chocolate for breakfast so I’m happy! Did you get an Easter egg? April showers are definitely the call of the day round these parts and…

Ooh, look what I found nestling at the bottom of my camera bag. You’ve guessed it – more beach photos! Finding them was a cheery moment as it is lashing it down with rain and far, far away from…

This weekend I took NO photos – time and daylight just didn’t allow and now I am sad as I have a week of office confinement before the next opportunity arises. Damn the tilting of the earth, the changing…
