Well, I should say a lot of sunshine! It's the Easter Bank Holiday weekend and the sun is out here in the UK...this is unheard of!! It seem so rare to actually get good weather on a holiday weekend...and for the whole weekend..that's four whole days, shock horror! And this is why us Brits are… Continue reading A Little Sunshine To Lift My Mood!
It certainly feels like the seasons are changing! The sun is shining, the trees are starting to bud. Since returning from my holidays I have noticed that the nights are getting longer. I'm definitely not complaining about that, it's so lovely to return home from work in the light instead of what feels like the… Continue reading Spring Has Sprung (I Hope!)

But somehow my partner had persuaded me that it would be MUCH better to fly the forty-five… Continue reading Heading For The Skies…Reluctantly!
I spent a lovely day in London at the weekend catching up with a friend. We ate good food, drank gin and tonic and she introduced me to the works of the prolific artist, Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor.

I have so many photos of sunsets (they are one of my favourite things!), and these are some of my most recent. Taken on a trip to the Elephant Conservation Centre in northern Laos, this setting was pretty spectacular and watching the sunset over the lake was very special. It was so peaceful and quiet… Continue reading Sunsets Galore in Laos
Whilst wandering around the town of Nyaungshwe at Inle Lake in Myanmar, we watched this dog saunter out into the road and then sit down, seemingly oblivious to the fact it would be in the way of the traffic. I loved the fact that it didn't actually care and would not move. Happily lounging around,… Continue reading Canine Cheekiness in Myanmar
