in another world

in another world - Kakanui, the ocean in summer

in another world - Kakanui at dusk, summer

We are in the midst of winter, and here in our home in the midst of wintry sickness. Not much fun – Mia came home unwell on Friday and it has ravaged through each member of the family, though so far luckily leaving Simon untouched. There has been a fair amount of couch time, reading, watching movies, and spending some time on computers. Reuben and I have finished our current books, watched The Lone Rangerย (which we enjoyed very much), and drunk a lot of herbal tea while sitting in one spot for the past couple of days. It’s oddly nice to be forced to do very little.

In the past day I have been going through my rather shocking photo files trying to right their filing wrongs – well let’s say it’s been a while since I have done what I always promise myself I am going to do, and that is to go back and organise them into months and years. You would think I would know better, you would think I would know to save myself the hassle by doing it at the time… apparently not. It is rather lovely going back through these files though. I am guilty, as I am sure a lot of us are, of not printing very much at all – which remains to be odd with me as I do take rather a lot of photo’s. One aspect of today’s organising that I really enjoyed was looking through some of the more summery moments captured in our two summer breaks – at Moeraki and Kakanui. Two places we just love, and two very magical spots in this beautiful country. So I thought, in the middle of winter, I would share a little more of our summer – and if you were at all curious as to how much time I can waste into the computer, the answer is most of the day it would seem.


Please pop by again later in the week – I will be announcing and launching my newest idea and challenge – I hope you all like it, and I really hope some of you may be inspired to join in!

    I’m excited to hear what your new project is! I’ve got something in the works too, which all going to plan I’ll be able to share in a few weeks.

    We’ve had a rather nasty bug go through our house too which we’re recovering from now. Luckily the wee man was over it in half a day, but we didn’t get off so lightly!
