It may 1 April but this is no April fool trick. I’m back with high falutin blogging ambitions.
Although autumn is upon us this summer has broad shoulders and is still warming body and soul. Whilst I’ve been gone on my blogging sabbatical there has been plenty of adventures and all round hard work spending time with my in-laws.
Most people might roll back their eyes at the prospect of spending prolonged periods of time with their in-laws. Not for me. No honest, I mean it, my repertoire of in-law jokes is miniscule as I’m lucky to have the kind of in-laws that are not just good company but they are grafters and supporters without whom this summer’s land management project teetered on the unachievable.
We wined and dined. Bonded over the crossword and other cultural pursuits. We had fun and now they are gone the house is empty and quiet. But we have the technology to stay in touch. And for me, it is only a matter of weeks before we’ll catch-up again back in the UK.
I’m also back studying photography. Building my confidence for a portrait project I really want to leap into but got cold feet over at the last-minute. It’s been a fascinating excursion into what makes a great portrait. For now, here’s a couple of my to celebrate family time.
