I knew at the beginning of the year that I wanted to let go of the blog. I am in a different place now and I need the space to work through a great many things. I intend to keep the archives up for a time, although I have removed the comment function.
If you have landed here - welcome and feel free to dip in to what was our life - once upon a time...

A sad start to our week, as we had to say goodbye to our collie, Mick. He had been suffering from a degenerative condition for a few months, but seemed to be managing ok. He became worse after John died and it had come to the stage where we were moving Mick around on a blanket, as he was unable to walk. Sadly, it was the end of the road, and our caring vet had to put him to sleep. He was a good dog, but he was John's dog, We miss him , and still feel his presence in the house, but's nice to think of them together again.
There has been a lot of thunder and lightning this week, and we have watched the storms rolling in on the south wind.
We have enjoyed a couple of evenings of live music down at the visitor centre this week, as a celebration of their 20th anniversary. This is the wonderfully named Raw Peat. They sounded great too!
I found a delicious recipe on a lovely blog, and tried it out that very day - Tuna and herb pasta went down very well, and made a nice change from our usual tuna mayo pasta.
Then, at the end of the week, summer arrived, and we headed straight to the beach.
On the way home from an evening with friends, we stopped in at one of our favourite bays to enjoy the late evening light. Well worth it
And today, after a lazy start, we just went out for a walk around the neighbourhood. Sunny weather, beautiful scenery and the best company - a lovely end to our week.
I hope your week ahead has some sunshine, warmth, good music, delicious food, great company and happy memories. xxx
