I did think that blogging might fall by the wayside while we are away visiting our family, away from home that is. Which made me think about today’s theme of ‘home’. Really, home is wherever we all are, as long as we are all together. So even though we are away, staying in other homes, we are all in the same place, eating together, talking together, hanging out the laundry, going for walks, and so on. For this week, this is home.

And this was the sunset as we walked home this evening…

Happy Tuesday xx


The promise of a bank holiday… August 28, 2011

I love a bank holiday, don’t ask me why. It might be left over from my younger years, when it meant an extra day off, a promise of something better. Tomorrow it means a day spent with friends, perhaps a glass of Pimms or two, catching up, good food, before the end of the holidays are upon us.

Only a couple of days ago we were travelling home, along the A30, sun going down. And then there was a magical moment, the perfect combination of raindrops and sunlight, a rainbow. And at one point I could see both ends of the rainbow. And then a double rainbow. Photographs can’t do it justice, but here we go…

Homeward bound

Homeward bound



A double rainbow

Double rainbow - look closely!

Almost there...

Almost there..

Red sky begins

Red sky begins...

I saw both ends of the rainbow – I couldn’t catch it, but I did see it xx

So my baby girl came home last night after 4 days at camp. She’s slept the clock round, eaten a huge breakfast and is now trying to get the knots out of her hair!!

I’m so happy to have her home 🙂

And she’s just got time to recover before we are off festivalling at the end of the week – yippee!
