In remembrance of Sydney Bacon

I first published this post in 2014 and it seems very fitting to republished today on the 100th anniversary of the armistice. 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…

That was October

This post is a bit late coming after a tempête de merde of a week last week – I won’t go into details but many things decided to conspire against us both personally and in our business so it was not a good time! Thank goodness for yoga! Anyway those who know me know that I’m…

Welcome back pixel palettes

There is something very satisfying about making these palettes! One day i might use them for decorating a room but for the time being I’ll just enjoying playing around with the colours from my photos! Palettes one and two were made from photos from this mornings walk which was dull and damp.

That was October

October came and went so quickly – it certainly was a strange month in terms of the weather with temperatures in the 20s some days. When the sun wasn’t shining we had some amazing skies and a couple of very dramatic storms. Last week was half term and we went on a mini road trip…
