Amazingly my Dad discovered this newspaper amongst his own fathers memorabilia yesterday. This morning I will be going to our local service to remember all of those who perished in this and other…

Morning walk – 22nd July

It would be fair to say that I haven’t been very motivated to write and post much just lately.  I’m still walking in the mornings and taking lots of photos on my new “phone friend” as well as driving every one nuts by taking pictures with my lovely 6D 1.4 50mm combo in the kitchen…

Thought for the day – a new inspiration!

I follow a lot of pages on Facebook – from lifestyle and food to fitness and yoga.  Most mornings when I log in my feed is full of motivational images and words, thoughts for the day and general messages for life.  Many of these are great – especially when you are feeling a bit flat…
